Bald Head Island Club: Major Expansions Making A Huge Splash On Social, Recreational Fronts

The center of Bald Head Island’s social and recreational life since 1991, the Bald Head Island Club has been undergoing new construction and major renovations that will effectively double the club’s previous size. Construction on the new additions and planned remodeling began in November of 2017, with Hurricane Florence adding significantly to the renovations list in September of 2018.

With great fanfare and a lineup of fun activities, the club will celebrate its grand opening in grand style on Saturday, May 4, from 5:00 until 9:00 p.m. BHI Club membership is required for those attending, and all dining venues will be closed for regular service during the event. Members will enjoy heavy hors d’ oeuvres, new menu samples, beer and wine tastings, games, live music and more. The entire club campus will be open for tours, including golf and croquet demonstrations.

Horizons Restaurant and Family Aquatics Center

The centerpiece of the club is the new Horizons restaurant and surrounding extensive aquatics center. Bald Head Island Club General Manager Robert Norton said members submitted more than 200 names for the new restaurant.

“While we had many excellent suggestions, we felt Horizons truly captures the ambiance you will feel when looking out over the water with panoramic views and ocean breezes,” he said. The restaurant will have a resort casual menu and atmosphere, including a wraparound porch that offers views of the ocean, swimming pool, splash pad and tennis courts.

The aquatics center is so packed with liquid fun, it’s more like a water park for the entire family. It incorporates the existing swimming pool, and adds a leisure pool with chaise lounges, a children’s zero-entry pool with splash features, a large splash pad area, and waterslides from a tower that end in a plunge pool. Adjacent to the water features is a dry playground with all-new equipment.

Members can have their thirst and hunger satisfied from three separate places around the pool: a walkup snack bar window, a cabana bar serving drinks and lite fare, and the full-service Horizons restaurant and bar.

Additionally, in the clubhouse, both the Palms and Palms Terrace have been renovated, and hurricane damage repair in the Ocean Room is complete. The entire club will look brand new to kick off the 2019 season.
