Merion Golf Club

Haverford Township, Delaware County, PA

Merion’s famed East Course, which has hosted more USGA Championships than any course in America, is currently undergoing a restoration. Nave Newell worked closely with Merion on the design and construction of improvements, which are under construction and scheduled to be complete by spring of 2019.

Prior to that project, Nave Newell worked with Merion’s architect to convert an existing tented patio to an enclosed pavilion for receptions, meetings and golf events. Situated in a significant location next to Merion’s iconic clubhouse, design for the project required grading, an infiltration basin, erosion control and a sanitary sewer connection. Positioned on a flagstone terrace, the new covered pavilion seats up to 300 people overlooking the first hole.
