The Peninsula holds clubhouse grand opening with holiday flair

The Peninsula on The Indian River Bay, Delaware’s award-winning community, celebrated the official opening of its new 33,000-square-foot clubhouse on December 17.

Designed to take advantage of the striking views of the water, the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, and the surrounding environment, the clubhouse features an awe-inspiring architectural design that embodies the gracious character of The Peninsula. Designers artfully incorporated windows and balconies into the dramatic clubhouse composition, giving residents the opportunity to enjoy the views from every angle.

“At long last, the residents of The Peninsula have a brand-new and beautiful clubhouse,” said Preston Schell, CEO of Ocean Atlantic Companies, developers of The Peninsula. “The clubhouse ties in with our first-class Peninsula lifestyle and sits on the highest point in the community, providing magnificent views of our golf course and the Indian River Bay with the iconic bridge in the distance.”

The interior space features a wine room, fine dining, a banquet space, wood-burning pizza oven, billiard room, locker rooms, premier golf shop, and interactive HD golf simulator. With a veranda that wraps around the back of the building, residents can also enjoy the alfresco seating area with a fireplace.

“The entire Peninsula team has put so much heart and soul into the creation of this beautiful building,” said Donald DeMasters, general manager. “Throughout the entire building process our number-one goal was to have a club that is second-to-none in terms of quality, appearance, and overall experience for its homeowners. With our new clubhouse, we have far exceeded those expectations.”

Residents of the community also joined in the ribbon-cutting ceremony. “We have lived full-time at The Peninsula for 11 years. This clubhouse is the fulfillment of a dream to have a complete community centered around a meeting spot for friends and family,” said Susan and John Gee. “The clubhouse represents the very best that our community offers for an upscale, vibrant living environment.”

The Peninsula on The Indian River Bay is an award-winning 800-acre master-planned community. This one-of-a-kind resort community combines best-in-class amenities with beautifully designed homes.
