Terrazza 19 opened September 15, following a four-month renovation project at Grande Dunes that included the installation of new TifEagle bermudagrass greens, the renovation of every bunker on the course, and the complete remodeling of the clubhouse, which gave birth to the restaurant.
“With a creative menu and a beautiful setting, we believe Terrazza 19 will become a destination restaurant for golfers and locals alike,” said Erica Callahan, the food & beverage manager at Grande Dunes. “We are off to a great start, and I look forward to Terrazza 19’s growth as more people enjoy the experience and realize this is so much more than a ‘golf course’ restaurant.”
With expanded indoor and outdoor seating, Terrazza 19 is one of the course’s centerpiece amenities, appealing to golfers and area residents, who are welcome to cross Grande Dunes’ private bridge and enjoy a menu, designed by executive chef Sheila LaTour, that is drawing rave reviews.
Among the lunch specialties at Terrazza 19 are the candied bacon shareable, which features thick-cut bacon covered in maple brown sugar, wraps, burgers and paninis. The dinner menu includes steak tacos, topped with avocado, onion, chimichurri and queso fresco, along with a selection of entrees that include chicken skewers complemented by curry and peanut sauce.
In addition to the set menu, Terrazza 19 also features weekly pasta specials, homemade soups, and a Friday night fish fry.
Terrazza 19, which showcases views of the Intracoastal Waterway and a popular craft cocktail menu, also hosts live music, allowing diners to enjoy the stunning scenery, quality food and a relaxing environment.
Grande Dunes has been ranked among the top 100 public courses in America and features five holes along the Intracoastal Waterway, highlighted by the par 3 14th, which plays from an elevated tee box to a green that borders the water.
The Roger Rulewich design is in spectacular shape, following the greens and bunker renovation project and Terrazza 19 ensures the Grande Dunes experience continues after the final putt drops.
Terrazza 19 is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
