The Summit Club at Armonk celebrated the official grand opening of its Rees Jones renovated golf course with a ribbon cutting ceremony and inaugural tournament for members and invited guests. The course is phase one of a comprehensive master plan that will include extensive recreational and fitness amenities, a new clubhouse and 73 luxury condominium residences.
“We are pleased with the responses we have heard from the golfers and how much they are enjoying the changes and improvements to The Summit Club at Armonk,” remarked Rees Jones. “Our objective was to bring the golf experience to a level that complements the natural beauty of the site and stunning views of the countryside.”
“The Summit Club at Armonk represents a visionary rebranding of the traditional country club and will appeal to new members as the golf lifestyle reimagined,” said Jeffrey B. Mendell, Managing Partner. “The Summit Club will be a 21st century lifestyle community with golf, tennis, fitness and wellness within a resort-like environment. Members will enjoy first class hospitality and services similar to being on a great vacation without leaving home.”
The most significant course improvements include three new holes on the back nine, the rebuilding of all fairway and greenside bunkers along with the adjustment of some bunker locations to give players additional shot options. Several greens complexes were added in order to provide new greenside chipping areas, and a number of landing zones were created on a few holes to improve their playability. The golf range and practice facilities also were upgraded and a new short game area was added.
