Former Brynwood Golf & Country Club Undergoes Transformation
The new Summit Club at Armonk, formerly Brynwood Golf & Country Club, announces that renovation work is underway by noted architect Rees Jones whose master plan will bring significant upgrades and new design features to the golf course. The current project is the first phase of a complete transformation of the property that will include extensive recreational and fitness amenities, a new clubhouse and 73 luxury condominium residences.
The Summit Club at Armonk represents a visionary rebranding of the traditional country club environment and will appeal to new members as ‘the golf lifestyle reimagined.’ “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. “Members will enjoy first-class hospitality and services similar to being on a great vacation without leaving home.”
The most significant course improvements include three new holes on the back nine, the rebuilding of all fairway and greenside bunkers along with the adjustment of some bunker locations to give players additional shot options, reshaping of several greens complexes in order to create new greenside chipping areas, plus the reshaping of a number of landing zones on a few holes to improve their playability. The Summit Club at Armonk course will play to 6,700 yards from the back tees with a par of 71. The golf range and suite of practice facilities also are being upgraded. The renovated course plans to reopen April 2021.
“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.
