Aberdeen Country Club News

How wonderful it is to wake up in the morning to bright sunshine and the warmth of the sun rather than the darkness of night once the clocks were changed back to end Daylight Savings Time. That’s what most of us love about being here in south Florida instead of being up north with the gray skies and chilly winds and cold nights. What could be better for us than the casual lifestyle we have here at the Club! It is actually “a quality lifestyle at an outstanding value”! If you don’t have a copacetic lifestyle now, you don’t know what you are missing!

Members take pleasure in using the impressive facilities of our Fitness, Tennis and Aquatic Center. Lots of work-out equipment … so many things to do! Not only is exercise so important, but it gives members the opportunity to further their social contacts which are evident by the large number of members sitting, talking and drinking every morning in the refreshment area adjoining the Tennis Viewing Stand. Aerobic sessions are given at the Beach Pool while swimmers make use of the Lap Pool and bathers enjoy the Serenity Pool within the multi-leveled Aquatic area of the Center. There are numerous athletic classes given daily each week, free to all members, at the Exercise Studio with classes available for work-ing members as the Fitness Center is also open late to accommodate them. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Recently, the Club approved a new Resident Non-Member Guest Policy beginning in December, 2016. A member may bring a resident non-member to the Club for lunch or dinner on specific days: Jan. 18, Mar. 5 and one holiday of the member’s choice. This new program will be on a trial basis during the 2016/17 membership year. The Club will continue its signature programs, including the Baby Boomer Incentive Program, Lessee Club Amenities Upgrade Program, Friends & Family Program, Non-Resident Membership Program and the Try Golf & Try Tennis Programs. See our Director of Membership if you are interested in any of these programs.

This past month preparation began for another original edition of “Laugh Out Loud” for the spring. The Ladies held their quarterly meet, greet and celebrate Ladies’ Birthday Celebration at the Club with dinner, entertainment and dancing for a fabulous evening. Halloween was celebrated with an exciting Elegant Masked Ball. A “Night Under the Stars” evening was scheduled outdoors at the beach entry pool. Thanksgiving would not be the same without the Thanksgiving Day Dinner Extravaganza. The Club hosted a Fun Day for children in the “Guardian ad Litem” program (county-sponsored) to play tennis, ball and golf events specially designed for them. A real treat! The Ladies and Men golfers held their respective Opening Day Tournaments and Tennis members began the Open Tennis Club Championship rounds of competition. The President’s Cup Tournament 3-round event for both Men and Ladies was also played with gross and net winners.

December activities will include the Children’s Activity Week, the Holiday Carnival, Christmas Day Brunch Extravaganza, Traditional Chanukah Dinner, Family Bingo Night and the New Year’s Celebration. For golfers, the Men’s Club Championship and the Ladies’ Club Championship matches are scheduled to finish in the Championship Finals during the month. For tennis members the Aberdeen Open Men’s and Women’s Singles Tournaments will be followed by the Stretch and-Serve-Round Robin. Clubs and Classics will be meeting again, including AARP Safe Driving Classes, Aberdeen Anglers, Bereavement Workshop, Book Clubs I and II,

Cinema Connection, Current Events Club, Love of the Opera Club and the Aberdeen Knitting and Crochet-ing Club. Save the date of the Aberdeen “Play for Pink” in February which includes golf, tennis, card party and more. For those wanting to experience a great lifestyle, come join us at the Club.
