With a range of country clubs catering to all income brackets, you owe it to yourself to at least consider joining a private club. You get a fantastic restaurant, great views, and other amenities like swimming pools and gyms, all surrounded by beautiful golf courses. ClubCorp has recently “reinvented” two local clubs in North Texas – Gleneagles Country Club and Stonebriar Country Club – to offer more opportunities for its members to connect, play, work, host and celebrate in a less “stuffy” environment, like traditional notions of “country clubs.” Here are some reasons why you may want to tour these ClubCorp private clubs.
Country clubs are generally known for golf, BUT that is not all that they offer. Your family will have hours of fun in their pools. Gleneagles Country Club offers water slides, splash pads, cabanas and more for you to relax without the crowds of a public pool. They also house gyms with state-of-the-art equipment and a variety of exercise classes without the lines or the wait. The gyms are usually very good and have top of the line trainers. Gleneagles Country Club also offers an amazing tennis complex with 18 lighted outdoor courts. I love playing tennis with “the ladies” and then following it up by lunch in the club.Speaking of food, the restaurants in the country clubs serve up delicious eats. Some clubs have themed food nights like Thursday Sushi & Sashimi Night and special dinners featuring lobster or prime rib. At Gleneagles Country Club, you can sit and dine on the terrace while enjoying the sunset over the gold course. The service is generally impeccable and many of the wait staff have been doing it for years. A lot of the clubs do an amazing lunch buffet, while the evenings turn into a fine dining affair. Country clubs have several events throughout the year. Some are private while others are events open to all club members. The parties can range from appetizers, live piano music, and ballroom dancing, to disco parties. Luckily, many clubs these days have a shrinking average age, so you’ll have more members in their 30’s and 40’s, as well as seasoned adults. 😉
Lastly, friendship, community and peace of mind are pillars of any club. Private venues value the sanctity of personal relationships and take great pride in being respites from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Gleneagles Country Club provides a kids club, where the kids can play video games, draw and explore a safe environment while the parents are enjoying the club. Not only can family members come to a club and enjoy golf, but they can meet their friends and fellow club members for a meal, relax at the pool or arrange business meetings. When you find the right club, there’s a level of happiness and contentment that makes it worth it all!
