Clubhouse commended on new soccer fields

Chris Carter

The Clubhouse in Statesboro is a sanctuary of family fun with an arcade, bowling, laser tag, go carts, mini golf, full sized golf driving range and most recently soccer fields open for all ages.

The new soccer fields that have been added are second to none. The field is sodded with Celebration Bermuda grass which is the same playing surface used in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. The field’s overall size is equivalent to four regulation fields.

This field has made The Clubhouse a haven for travel soccer teams. Teams come from all over the state to play on a quality soccer field. Travel soccer has no season so year around on any given weekend the Clubhouse may host anywhere from nine to 18 games usually.

It is also the home field of The Storm soccer academy which trains people of all ages in soccer. It is one of the leading soccer academies in the area including Savannah and Statesboro.

All of this has lead to the Clubhouse soccer fields being selected to be the location of the Georgia Soccer State Cup final four. The two teams that play in the Georgia State Soccer Championship will be decided at the Clubhouse in Statesboro, Georgia.

This is quite an accomplishment considering the addition of the Soccer fields only happened in October of last year. The idea behind the addition of the fields for the Clubhouse was to bring more people and attention to the Statesboro community. In this capacity they have surely been successful.

Between the travel soccer teams coming to play at the field and now the state cup final four a great deal of attention and tourism is assured. The Clubhouse’s quality and fun spirit has garnered attention for themselves and the community of Statesboro as a whole.

Destination Management magazine has named it as one of its designated outstanding venues in the United States. The decision to have them host the final four for the state soccer cup only enforces the Clubhouse as great place for people to have their events.
