Aberdeen Country Club News

Now that the Fall season is upon us, we want to welcome the return of all Aberdeen Club members who have recently come back or have yet to return. We know that they are looking foward to enjoying all that the Club has to offer. The facilities have been pampered and polished during the summer period, the entire parking area landscaping was replaced with all new palm trees, hedges and bushes, a new water structure is being built in front of the Club-house. Summer maintenance also included the FTA Center, our 15 Tennis courts, our always interesting-to-play 18-hole golf course, together with our main Clubhouse.

While everything has been placed in readiness for the fall season for all of our members, Club plans for 2017 call for many improvements including the refurbishing of the lower floor of the Clubhouse and the complete overhaul of the tennis complex to add pickle ball courts. In addition, plans call for the full refurbishing and re-contouring of the golf course to provide expanded tee areas, a course-within-a-course, expanded greens, cart paths and a beautifully landscaped golf course with multiple yardage options forgiving enough for high handicappers and challenging for low handicappers. And all such improvements to be implemented without the imposition of any assessment!

What else has been happening at the Club? In October the Halloween Trick-Or-Treat Mixed 18 & 9-Hole Golf Tournament was scheduled to be played with participants wearing their Halloween Finest. Tennis members participated in their Halloween Circus Round Robin. The Club further celebrated Halloween 2016 with an Elegant Masked Ball with members encouraged to wear festive masks. Rosh Hashanah Dinner was also celebrated, followed by Yom Kippur “Break the Fast” Dairy Extravaganza. The Ladies’ Birthday Celebration was held to celebrate August through October Birthdays with entertainment part of the festivities.

November will see a scheduled “92nd Street Y” event, followed by “Night Under The Stars” Pool-side Party and the Thanksgiving Day Dinner Extravaganza. Opening Day Golf Tournaments for both Men and Ladies golfers are planned, followed by the Men’s President’s Cup Tournament and the Ladies’ President’s Cup Tournament, each ending with their respective Final’s round of competition. Tennis Club Championship Tournaments will also commence for Mixed Doubles, Men’s Doubles, Women’s Doubles and Men’s and Women’s Singles matches. Returning this Fall to Aberdeen will be our dance professional, Justin Penny, to teach social dancing for beginners to advanced dancing.
