Texas Tech Club on Track for Mid-September Opening

September 1, 2010

LUBBOCK, Texas, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ — The Texas Tech Club, a new private member club to be located in Jones AT&T Stadium, announces it is on track for a mid-September opening and will be hosting its first pre-game Tailgate Tent party for the Red Raiders’ season opener against SMU on Sept. 5.

With its floor-to-ceiling windows, the private club offers panoramic views of the stadium facing west and downtown Lubbock to the east, and will serve as host throughout the season to home game pre-game pep rallies and game-day Tailgate Tent parties for members. The Texas Tech Club also will serve as a gathering spot for alumni, faculty, and staff along with the Lubbock professional, civic, and social community. A range of membership classifications are available with resident and non-resident offerings, and special pricing for faculty and junior alumni.

“We are excited about the grand opening of the Texas Tech Club and ClubCorp becoming an active member of Texas Tech and the surrounding communities,” said Eric Affeldt, ClubCorp’s president and CEO. “Our university aligned business clubs have proven to be very popular venues where alumni, fans, and friends continue to congregate and take pride in their alma mater while enjoying an upscale setting.”

The club design will reflect Texas Tech’s rich history and amenities will include an upscale dining room that seats 80 people with its own dedicated “exposition kitchen,” a casual bar and grill, private dining rooms, and multimedia-capable business rooms. Dedicated parking on non-home game days along with easy access from the Marsha Sharp Freeway will make the club convenient for its members.

In addition to operating the club, ClubCorp will provide food and beverage catering services for the suites and premium seat holders on both sides of the stadium on game days as well as supply catering for all non-game-day meetings and events at the stadium.

ClubCorp operates 50 business and sports clubs around the country, which includes the University of Texas Club located in the Darrel K. Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium on the UT campus in Austin and the University Center Club in Doak Campbell Stadium on the Florida State University campus in Tallahassee.
