The Citadel Beach Club is back in business and accepting event bookings after being renovated following a fire last spring.
The renovations were completed in just nine months, despite delays from tropical storms and Hurricane Matthew. The Col. Robert R. McCormick Beach Club of The Citadel (The Citadel Beach Club) was damaged in May 2016 when a fast-moving fire broke out.
The club’s caretakers were in their onsite apartment but escaped unharmed. Upgrades have been made to flooring, restrooms and various mechanical items. The general layout of the club was not altered, other than the addition of a new bridal suite.
“We are grateful for the continuous support The Citadel has received from the Isle of Palms community, our Beach Club clients, and The Citadel family from the day of the fire, though the rebuilding,” said Col. Tom Philipkosky, USAF (Ret.), senior vice president for operations and administration. “We are ready to take reservations for events, and the Beach Club is ready to receive our cadets, faculty and staff, and alumni who look forward to using it each summer."
