In our busy, hectic lives, family members can get scattered hither and yon on their way to the weekend. Work, school, and everything in between can make it difficult for families to find a lot of time together, much less even enjoy a family dinner. So, why not consider a golf membership at a club, where the whole family can meet and spend quality time together?
A social or golf membership at a country club is so much more than just a way to play some golf, particularly for a family. Golf clubs offer so many amenities and activities to interest the entire family that the club can become the venue a family counts on to bring them all together.
“There are events, programs, and activities for everyone in the family to enjoy, and it’s an excellent opportunity to make friends and build relationships regardless of age,” says Phil Anderson, general manager of North Oaks Golf Club.
Get to Know More People
Golf has always been a great way to meet new people, and it can be a pathway to new experiences for your family.
“Families new to the area join specifically to get to know their neighbors,” Anderson says. “And that is made easy through club programming: junior tennis and golf summer camps, kids night out events, golf clinics and leagues, adult tennis drills, cooking classes, wine tastings and club committee involvement.”
Attend Family-Friendly Events
There are always different ways to draw your family to the club, where people interact and form new relationships — or just experience things as a family. There are a host of year-round events to enjoy from outstanding brunches for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, to Easter (with petting zoo for the kids), breakfast with Santa, a Halloween party and dance band events.
A Dining Experience for Everyone
If it is just dinner together with your family that you crave, many country clubs have multiple dining options with different ambiance and cuisine that can turn it into a weekly outing and some even have to go curb-side service for those really on the go. Country clubs offer dining with some of the best vistas you can find and employ top chefs and culinary teams to prepare fantastic dinners. And the service at a country club is always second to none.
“In terms of the degree of the personalization, community feel, and delivery of services by staff who care deeply about providing extraordinary service every time a member steps on the property, it is unsurpassed,” Anderson says.
All Golfers Welcome
If you are a family of avid golfers, there is no better place to be than a country club. Membership affords your family accessibility, phenomenal course conditions, extraordinary personalized service, leagues, speed of play, top rate locker room facilities, year-round practice facilities, and special golf shop pricing. A golf membership at a club truly sets it apart from other golf experiences.
And there is no better time than now to get a social or golf membership at a golf club. We are moving into the peak season of golf and other activities at every club, and they are primed for this time of the year. At North Oaks, the past year has included some renovation of the clubhouse with the addition of great new spaces and dining options.
“The Grand-reopening on June 22nd will be an incredible affair,” Anderson says. “It will include an open flow of hors d’oeuvres and drinks throughout the club, Farm to Fairway (a locally sourced event in which we do a five-course meal and wine pairing out on the golf course on a late summer day), and the Ray Vennewitz two-day guest invitational, the marquee event of the summer for members and guests.”
So, what are you waiting for? There's a country club for everyone. Do your research and find the perfect fit for your family's interests.
