You don't have to be a member, but you can be. Pound Ridge Golf Club, the only Pete Dye-design in New York, announces its 2013 individual and corporate season plans for avid golfers searching for a home course on a level with the area's private golf clubs.
According to Pound Ridge owner Ken Wang, Season plans are a no-risk alternative to the long-term commitment of a country club membership. There are no food and beverage minimums or hidden fees, and rounds are conveniently debited from the plan holder’s account.
Individual plan holders enjoy full use of the driving range and short game area after 4 p.m. Monday - Thursday, and receive a 2013 GHIN handicap. Starting at $3,000, annually, holders can use the account to pay for golf as well as for guests playing in their group.
Corporate plans ($16,000) offer the flexibility of listing any number of designated representatives on the account. A complimentary foursome voucher (up to a $940 value) is included along with an assortment of benefits tailored to the needs of modern executives.
“Our annual golf plans are the ideal option for area golfers who want to play frequently on a world-class public course designed to the highest private club standard,” says Wang. “Pound Ridge’s proximity to New York and the financial hub of Southern Connecticut provides the business professional with an unforgettable experience for client entertainment in a most convenient location.”
Pound Ridge is a quintessential Dye course. There are some excellent videos with Dye discussing the course during its construction on the club's website. All the legendary designer’s renowned touches are on display: rhythmic routing, dramatic mounding and subtle deception meld to create an exciting and challenging golf experience. Pound Ridge reflects the best in contemporary course design and is unique in a region filled with classic courses.
Since opening in 2008, Pound Ridge has earned world-class accolades from Golf Digest, GOLF Magazine, Golfweek, AskMen.com, Rolex and LINKS Magazine, not to mention TeeToGreen and Westchester Magazine. For more information, www.poundridgegolf.com, (914) 764-5771.
