NORTH BARRINGTON, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The club previously known as Wynstone Golf Club in North Barrington, Illinois (just north of Chicago) has been reconstituted. On June 30, 2017, a group of nine families comprised of former members of the Wynstone Golf Club, who reside within the prestigious Wynstone community, purchased the Club from the equity members and established The Club at Wynstone. The full-service club offers the only private Jack Nicklaus Signature course in the State of Illinois and has exceptional tennis, swimming, fitness, dining and family events.
The Club’s Chairman, Dan Murphy, announced that the vision for the Club is to be family-focused, family-centered, and to stay relevant with the lifestyles of their members. He stated, “The Club provides a truly friendly, inclusive, comfortable and respectful family-centered environment for all members, their families and guests who golf, dine, swim or socialize at the Club. We want the Club to be a fun place where our friends, neighbors and community residents can enjoy quality time recreating and celebrating together.”
Murphy continued, “As a new ownership group, we are 100% committed to ensuring our members have an outstanding experience. We are very fortunate to have one of the best golf courses in the State, which was renovated in 2015 and is in impeccable condition. For our members’ enjoyment, our beautiful clubhouse features a variety of meeting and dining rooms as well as outdoor dining with stunning views. Additional amenities include fitness facilities and a tennis and swim complex.”
The acquisition eliminates the old Club’s debt and puts the Club on solid financial footing. The new non-equity membership structure abolishes operating assessments and the restructured dues pricing creates an excellent opportunity for families to join the Club. “Since taking over ownership the Club has already admitted over 75 new members,” said Dennis Strand, Vice Chairman and one of the new owners. "This acquisition is an incredible accomplishment and we are very excited about the resurgence of the Club.”
The new ownership group is working with Arnold Palmer Golf Management, a professional club management company, to help navigate through the acquisition and to provide ongoing management for the Club. Doug Howe, a partner with Arnold Palmer Golf Management expressed his company’s sentiment by stating, “We are thrilled to be a part of this spectacular club. The new owners have been fantastic to work with and have a clear vision for the future of the club. We are honored to be selected for this opportunity to serve the Club’s members and the greater Chicago area community.”
