Park Country Club | Williamsville, New York
General Manager

About The Club
The Park Country Club was founded in 1903. They are proud of their first one hundred years and are now in their second “Century of Tradition.” In 1927, a notable Architect, Clifford C. Wendehack, also responsible for Winged Foot Country Club’s lovely building, created a spectacularly beautiful and elegant clubhouse for The Park Country Club’s members and guests to enjoy.

At the same time, their exquisite golf course was designed and built by an equally renowned golf course architectural firm, Colt & Alison. The Park Country Club was the location of the 1934 PGA Championship and numerous amateur events. The Club’s challenging and meticulously groomed golf course has stood the test of time. Though the course has been lengthened to nearly 7000 yards from the back tees to accommodate the effects of technology, its design integrity has been preserved. The net result is that golfers at all levels are permitted a consistent and classic challenge on a meticulously groomed course.

The Club offers five quality tennis courts and a beautiful swimming pool. The hallmark of Park Country Club’s membership, however, is not only their beautiful amenities but the special Member Events that are hosted incorporating all Members of the family, from kids’ events to ladies’ book clubs, holiday celebrations, social hours, and various golf events for juniors, ladies, couples, and men.

Gross revenues exceed $9.7 million, with dues at $4.4 million and food & beverage accounting for $3.3 million. There are 160 staff members at the height of the season and 571 members. The clubhouse is operational year-round.
