Country Club Purchase Expands Windham’s Year-Round Focus
Windham Country Club in New York’s Catskill Mountains has entered into a memorandum of understanding with Windham Mountain Partners, the ownership group behind Windham Mountain, for purchase of the golf course.
Windham Mountain has been moving in the direction of developing year-round business to make it a four-season destination.
“The shareholders are confident that Windham Mountain will be able to move the golf course forward in a manner that will make them proud,” says Russ Parry, president of Windham Country Club’s Board of Directors.
The 18-hole course was heavily damaged by Hurricane Irene in 2011 and restoration efforts made by the club proved difficult. According to Randy MacDonald, managing partner of Windham Mountain Partners, restoration will continue to bring the course back to its “former glory.”
Additional improvements, as yet undetermined, are planned for the club, which will retain its name. Current employees’ jobs will be retained.
“While details of the acquisition remain to be finalized, we are optimistic that they will be completed quickly and we anticipate being ready for opening day,” says MacDonald.
The scenic and challenging public course was designed in 1928 by Len Raynor and features a Pro Shop and Seasons Restaurant. It is located just a few miles from Windham Mountain.
