While currently being renovated by world-renowned architect Rees Jones, the Summit Club is the site of golf history stretching back three generations. Originally designed by Albert Zikouras, The Summit Club golf course has been the integral part of a private club for almost 60 years. Now, with the able assistance of world-renowned Rees Jones, Inc., the golf course is getting a thorough redesign which will elevate the golf experience to a whole new level. The Rees Jones redesign is illustrated by the plan you see here with the designers notes and includes the following components: renovation of all bunkers, the creation of 3 new holes, reshaping of several fairways, many new tee boxes, renovation and conversion of all greens to bent grass, the take down of over 400 trees, a new range with targets and a short game area, irrigation upgrades and much, much more. Future improvements will include a golf performance center with indoor/outdoor hitting bays on the range and comfort stations with drinks and snacks on the front and back nines.
The end result will be a visually stunning par 71, 6,700 yard golf course with dramatic elevation changes and long distance views of the Westchester countryside. The redesign of the Summit Club achieves the goal of being challenging for the better players and a fair test for the average golfer. Nature and golf will truly co-exist among 156 acres of picturesque woodlands conveniently located in the heart of Armonk, NY.
The club will be managed by an experienced team that has spent a combined century-plus in the private club industry. The team’s background with first-class country clubs is a key to the Summit Club’s mission to make the experience of every member and guest memorable from “Bag Drop to 19th Hole.”
In summary, The Summit Club golf experience will be unlike any other in Westchester County. A new golf cart fleet will feature the latest GPS technology, usb ports, onboard coolers and Bluetooth speakers. Our programming is designed to make golf fun and exciting for the whole family within a relaxed resort-like atmosphere, where the member experience is our number one priority.
