The complex was designed by Populous and built by Okland, with site and field contractor Frontier Golf and landscape architect iN2iT among the other consultants. 

The 50,000-sq-ft clubhouse has five player locker rooms, locker rooms for coaches, a weight room, player training space and hydrotherapy on the ground floor. The center opened in February.
