The clubhouse was built on top of a granite mountain that was blasted flat by a civil subcontractor. Several phases of blasting took place prior to the start of construction, followed by a massive over-excavation in which crushed rock and soil were mixed and compacted. Numerous utilities were rerouted during construction due to the challenging excavation.
