The new Summit Club at Armonk celebrates the completion of its golf course renovation by noted architect Rees Jones with the opening of all 18 holes. The redesigned course offers a number of challenging new holes on an undulating property with elevated views of Westchester County’s scenic woodlands. The golf 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.
The most significant course improvements include three new holes on the back nine, the rebuilding of all fairway and greenside bunkers along 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 Summit Club at Armonk course is 6,700 yards from the back tees with a par of 71. The golf range and practice facilities also were upgraded and a new short game area is now accessible.
“The Summit Club at Armonk represents a visionary rebranding of the traditional country club environment and will appeal to new members as ‘the golf lifestyle reimagined,” said Jeffrey B. Mendell, Managing Partner. “The Summit Club is being designed as a 21st-century lifestyle community with a focus on 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.”
