People love a good deal. And so it is that Ferncroft Country Club in Middleton, Mass., looking to generate some good will with its neighbors while simultaneously raising funds for a good cause, will introduce “Town Day” to the local community later this year.
Scheduled for Monday, May 4th, the Town Day promotion will invite residents of nearby Boxford, Danvers, Middleton and Topsfield, and their guests, to play the private club’s Robert Trent Jones, Sr. championship course for $75 per player, which includes green fee, cart fee and range. Players will also have the opportunity to try out Ferncroft’s executive par-3 course and practice facility, which features a putting green, short game area and chipping green, for $25 per player.
THE GOAL:Bring more members of the community into the club and generate funds for the club’s Junior Scholarship Fund.THE PLAN: Create a “Town Day” promotion where anyone from the local community can come and play the private club’s newly renovated course for a discounted rate.
THE PAYOFF: Money will be raised to help disadvantaged youths learn life skills through golf.
A portion of all proceeds from Town Day will be donated to the Ferncroft CC Junior Scholarship Fund.
“We thought this was a great way to show our appreciation to the local community while also continuing to raise money to help disadvantaged local youths learn life skills through golf,” says Head Golf Professional Phil Leiss. “We are looking forward to it.”
Town Day comes on the heels of a $2 million restoration project at Ferncroft that included fully renovating and reopening the previously dormant 19th Hole restaurant, building a new multi-section golf practice area, performing drainage work on 14 holes, repaving the cart paths, and installing a fitness room filled with top-of-the-line equipment.
