The Cabin at Mountain Park Wins Prestigious Golden Fork Award

Cliffs Mountain Park Wellness Center

The Cliffs was honored in the January/February issue of Golf Inc., winning first place in the coveted “Best New Private” category of the magazine’s annual Golden Fork Awards. The award was bestowed upon The Cabin at Mountain Park, the clubhouse located within The Cliffs’ newest community, known for its casual atmosphere and rustic, seasonal menu. 

“We are incredibly proud to have The Cabin honored by Golf Inc.,” said David Sawyer, President of The Cliffs Clubs. “We set out to build a clubhouse that stood apart, a place where tablecloths are replaced by natural wood and families can relax together in blue jeans on the wraparound porch. It’s a departure from the traditional model, but reflects the direction our industry is trending towards. It has resonated quite strongly with our members.” 

To say The Cabin is popular among members at The Cliffs may be an understatement: The Cabin is the busiest restaurant among more than a dozen dining venues available across The Cliffs’ seven clubs. 

In addition to the rustic, casual atmosphere, members cite the culinary experience provided by Executive Chef Kevin Furmanek and Sous Chef Scott Denomme for The Cabin’s popularity. Utilizing fresh produce from the Broken Oak Organic Farm at The Cliffs­ — it doesn’t get any more farm-to-table than that! — as well as other local artisan ingredients, the chefs provide club classics for those that want a traditional dining experience while also offering plenty of variety. About half the menu changes on a weekly basis, based on the fresh, seasonal ingredients available to the chefs.
