Established in 1929 Elmhurst Country Club is an 18 hole private golf course in northeast Pennsylvania that averages 21,000 rounds per year.
At the beginning of my tenure here the greens were in very poor shape and other areas of the course were in need of attention and the club was well below its senior membership cap of 325. Currently the course is in outstanding condition, the membership cap has been raised to 340 and there is a waiting list.
Solidified Club and stabilized membership by implementing a strong agronomic program and elevating course conditioning standards. Made improvements in playability, functionality and aesthetics to all areas of the golf course.
