Slifer Design recognized for golf course work
EDWARDS – Slifer Designs of Edwards was recently awarded three silver awards for excellence in interior design for its work on the Red Sky Ranch private members clubhouse near Wolcott and the Mayacama Golf Club in Sonoma County, Calif. Two awards were for the common areas of both resorts’ clubhouses, and a third award was earned for private cottages at Mayacama Golf Club. The awards were given by the American Resort Development Association, a national organization representing the vacation ownership and resort development industries. “It truly is an honor to receive national recognition for our work in the Vail Valley and beyond,” said Beth Slifer, president and founder of Slifer Designs. “We uphold very high standards for our work and the designers that we hire and it is nice to be recognized by our peers for our commitment to outstanding design solutions and creativity.” The challenge at Red Sky Ranch, Slifer said, was to create a rich-looking clubhouse with a Western yet sophisticated look, and a residential feel that set it apart from traditional golf clubhouses. Members of the Slifer Designs team for Red Sky Ranch included Donna Figg, Sarah Schiltz and Jim Dawkins. Primary designers working on the Mayacama Clubhouse and Resort Unit properties included Figg, Kim Toms, Tom Counter, Tara Klaers and others. “At Red Sky Ranch, we were asked to create a unique ceiling finish without spending a fortune,” said Figg, one of the lead designers on the Red Sky Ranch project. “Our team developed a solution that created the exact effect the client wanted and was well below the typical cost for such a project.”Other members of the Red Sky Ranch construction team included Evans Chaffee Construction Group, and Hart Howerton Architects.
