Alyeska Resort, owner of O’Malley’s on the Green, has completed renovations of the banquet facility at the Anchorage Golf Course.

Most of the work called for remodeling the 3,100-square-foot dining room, which will allow more flexibility for meetings, said Alyeska Resort spokeswoman Cella Baker. The remodeling removed multilevel areas and increased diners’ view of Mount McKinley, she said.

Other renovations included new carpeting and paint for other banquet rooms.

The project cost at least $30,000, and the Municipality of Anchorage is sharing expenses to support the adjacent Anchorage Golf Course, she said.

Work, which began in late November, was completed in early January, she said.

The upgrades help prepare the facility for the winter banquet season, she said. O’Malley’s on the Green hosts golf tournaments which will also benefit from the remodeling, she said.

Alaska Club expands

Operators of The Alaska Club recently completed an expansion of the South Anchorage exercise facility. The $4 million expansion added 22,000 square feet to the existing 17,000-square-foot building, company officials said.

The Alaska Club South project featured a five-lane, 25-yard lap pool plus an attached wading pool and waterslide. The expansion also added a climbing wall, a full-size gym, youth lounge, a Nautilus Express circuit, a co-ed whirlpool bath, family locker rooms and expanded adult locker rooms and cardio area.

The facility, located at 10931 O’Malley Centre Drive, is one of eight exercise facilities owned by The Alaska Club in Anchorage, Eagle River ad Wasilla.
