The original clubhouse was a small building designed by Roger Bullard, but over the years it has been expanded and updated to become a modernized facility, though it still adheres to its original charm. Today it houses dining facilities, locker rooms, card, library and meeting rooms along with a complete golf shop and recently added golf simulator.
The main clubhouse has a banquet room for formal dining and large events, a less formal clubroom, as well as a pavilion and porch for outdoor dining and entertaining. A tenth tee snack bar with covered outdoor seating offers grab and go options. The Stingray Café is located at the pool pavilion and also offers casual summer fare.
Silver Spring has a full complement of social activities for adults and juniors alike. Professional instruction is offered in golf, tennis, paddle and swim for all levels. A recent spike of interest in bridge has created the added dimension of games for all levels year round and a “learn as you play” group meets regularly. Some highlighted social events include the Fourth of July picnic held annually which includes a professional fireworks display. Also popular are casual summerSunday barbeques; Steak and Lobster Night; wine tastings; and Farm to Table Dining. Juniors particularly like the Family Camp Out, Rocket Night, Junior Awards Night and the many casual pizza and movie nights at the Stingray Café.
A Club for All Seasons
While the main clubhouse and restaurants are closed from January 1 until March 1, Silver Spring remains a club for all seasons. Golf simulator instruction is available throughout the winter. Lighted paddle courts remain open for winter play, instruction and team play. The paddle warming hut with both indoor and outdoor fireplaces is a year round facility and also available for private party entertainment. During winter months the rolling hills are a popular attraction for cross country skiers and snowshoers
