Pound Ridge Golf Club, the public daily fee Pete Dye design in Westchester County.
Season plans start at $4,000 and several inducements have been added for 2012. Plan holders will get a ten percent discount on pro shop merchandise. They'll also be eligible to compete in the inaugural club championship and monthly tournaments as well as a meet-and-greet social in the spring. The pro shop discount will come in especially handy given the number of balls you'll need to play the demanding course.
Corporate plans feature rounds priced at lower advanced reservation rates for unlimited designated individuals from a business. Plans start at $16,000 and include a complimentary foursome voucher, a $940 value.
“Our individual and group plans offer customized options specific to the unique needs of today’s modern golfer,” says Pound Ridge owner Ken Wang. “From the boardroom to the first tee, our corporate plans are designed for ease-of-access and entertaining clients on a world-class, resort level course.”
Since Pound Ridge opened in 2008, the club has proven there is a market for high-end daily fee golf in Westchester. It may be priced a bit out of the range of the four-rounds-a-week retiree, but it has filled a solid need for golfers looking for a country-club experience on a pay-as-you-go basis.
