Project Challenge

Opened in January, 2010, The Players Championship (TPC) courses in San Antonio, Texas raise the bar for environmentally sensitive golf course design. Enlisting the services of PGA icons Greg Norman and Pete Dye, the project features two of the most well-planned, environmentally friendly and visually stunning layouts ever conceived.

With an eye on protecting the underlying aquifer below the courses, as well as conserving water with sophisticated irrigation and moisture monitoring techniques, the TPC San Antonio achieved its goal of course designs blending harmoniously with their surroundings in perfect balance with nature.

Architectural Solution

Partnering with HKS Architects in the construction of the lavish TPC San Antonio Clubhouse & Spa overlooking the Oaks Course 18th green, JELD-WEN was proud when the project earned LEED designation from the U.S. Green Building Council in 2010.

Concerned with energy efficiency and design flexibility, the designers integrated a total of 105 JELD-WEN Custom Clad Wood Windows and Epic® Clad Patio Doors into the project. Originally designed with aluminum commercial store-front windows for the clubhouse, the design team chose instead reliable JELD-WEN products after a visit to the TPC Sawgrass Clubhouse in Florida, another high profile project featuring JELD-WEN Wood Windows.

With plans featuring an impressive 68 foot wide and 14 foot tall radius wall, JELD-WEN’s team was up to the task. Working closely with the builder, the task of this challenging installation was achieved, with stunning results.

An ENERGY STAR® Partner since 1998, JELD-WEN’s ENERGY STAR qualified windows with Low-E glazing maximize daylight in the building and protect the TPC clubhouse against the heat of summer, helping the energy efficient building to reduce cooling costs, as well as protect interior finishes and fabrics from harmful UV rays.
