World’s leader in private Club management plans enhancements for Texas Tech Club.
Lubbock, TX (March 11, 2022) – ClubCorp, the worldwide leader in private clubs, has signed a long-term agreement to operate The Texas Tech Club at Texas Tech University. The approval and agreement ensure ClubCorp and The Texas Tech Club will continue to offer their industry-leading approach to hospitality while also laying the groundwork for essential investments and enhancements in the coming months.
“We are fortunate to extend our relationship with such a trusted partner like ClubCorp,” said Kirby Hocutt, Director of Athletics for Texas Tech. “This agreement will allow us to continue to invest in The Texas Tech Club and our premium areas inside Jones AT&T Stadium, giving our donors and fans a first-class experience each time they walk through the gate.”
The extension will include a multimillion-dollar renovation of The Texas Tech Club and East Side of the stadium, slated to be done before the 2022 Red Raiders football season. The Club will also debut investments in services and programming to enhance the Member experience, including expanded menus featuring fresh seafood, hand-cut butcher block selections and an in-house smoker.
The Texas Tech Club is part of ClubCorp’s growing Network of Stadium Clubs, utilizing renowned and celebrated athletic venues to offer a community for members and guests to come together throughout the entire year, not just on Saturdays. Members will enjoy a full calendar of social programming, business connections and philanthropic events that will deepen the link to the Lubbock community.
The kitchen will feature from scratch offerings and an expanded wine and craft cocktail list. In addition, themed Saturday Member brunches, dynamic Member programming with Red Raiders in mind, and regular happy hours featuring local favorites and seasonal additions to the menu.
“We’re thrilled to extend our partnership with Texas Tech and to continue to share our best-in-class service and hospitality with Red Raider Nation and the people of Lubbock,” said David Pillsbury, the CEO of ClubCorp. “As we start this next chapter of this partnership, we look forward to working with leadership and our members to make investments in, and improvements to, our processes, enhancing our Member services, expanding our menu and programming, and revitalizing this special space for the community.”
