Bay Shore, NY Racanelli Construction Company, Inc. has completed extensions and a renovation of the main clubhouse at the Southward Ho Country Club which included a complete renovation of the front entrance, reception area, Tiffany Room, lounge area and kitchen, as well as a new ladies locker room and grill room. Racanelli Construction served as the construction manager on the $3.5 million project.
According to Vincent Barone, project manager at Racanelli Construction, the company gutted the entrance area, relocated doors and entrances, added new doors and renovated the reception area of the Southward Ho Clubhouse. There was a complete renovation of the Tiffany Room in order to open it up and create better flow from that room to the lounge area. In the newly added ladies locker room, brand new wood lockers, a new restroom and card room were built. The kitchen was expanded and renovated to accommodate the clubhouse’s many events and their culinary requirements. Also added to the clubhouse was a new grill room with a coffered wood ceiling, and a wood bar that made it more elegantly casual. Directly off the grill room, a covered patio was added complete with new blue stone pavers, barbeque area and exterior bar.
According to Marty Racanelli, Jr., one of the partners at Racanelli Construction, all of the Racanelli team worked with the Southward Ho planning committee and architect David Busch to upgrade the club’s facilities while maintaining the original historic architecture and design.

New roofing, doors, frames and hardware, along with millwork, carpentry and drywall, ceramic tile and carpeting were provided.
