While vacationing in southwestern Utah, you may have reason to visit the South St. George “suburbs” of Bloomington and SunRiver where you are likely to see an unusual amount of “yellow iron” plowing up the golf course and several structures under construction. All this activity is due to the recent acquisition of the aging Bloomington Country Club, including the BCC golf course, by the management team of the SunRiver St. George Active Adult Community. They now are moving forward with their big plans for expanding, remodeling and adding onto the decades old neighborhood.
The Bloomington County Club was part of the master plan for Terracor which envisioned a high-end community in the 1960’s and which some say is at least partially responsible for making St. George a winter golf mecca. Originally a pioneer community, today’s Bloomington is divided by the Virgin River between what Terracor called “the Ranches” below and the “Country Club” side above the river.
The unpretentious, par 72 course, at the center of it all, looks like what it is – a fair golfing test originally built on a fairly level plot of land and designed for an older clientele.
As the work goes on, we’re already seeing some nice amenities taking shape, including the addition of a spa, improvements to the pool area, and about 2 dozen news homes in upper Bloomington.
