The new Summit Club at Armonk today opened the front nine holes of its highly anticipated renovated golf course by acclaimed architect Rees Jones. The masterful transformation of the former Brynwood Golf & Country Club gives area golfers the opportunity to play a first-class Jones design by joining this new brand of club that has been styled as “the private club experience reimagined.”
All 18 holes will be ready for member play in mid-June, as will the upgraded practice facilities. The Summit Club at Armonk course presents a good test for golfers and will play to 6,700 yards from the back tees to a par of 71. The par-5 14th hole already has been recognized by Westchester magazine as one of the great new golf holes among the county’s recently improved or renovated courses.
“The extensive golf course improvements will make The Summit Club at Armonk a place that all levels of golfers can enjoy in a natural landscape that offers dramatic elevation changes and stunning panoramic views of the New York countryside,” said Rees Jones.
“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,” said Jeffrey B. Mendell, Managing Partner. “Our orientation is to make golf more fun and less stuffy.”
In addition to the renovated golf course, The Summit Club at Armonk will provide exceptional amenities that will open in phases over the next few years. A temporary reception center, pro shop, food truck and covered outdoor dining terrace are now operational. An Amenities Pavilion that will include a pool, fitness center and casual dining breaks ground later this year. The new clubhouse and tennis courts are expected to commence construction in 2023. Some 73 luxury condominium residences also are planned.
