Manchester CC (VT) Recaptures Magic & Enjoys Membership Surge - New 2023 member promo
Southern Vermont's Premier Golf Course Offers New Member Fall Promotion for 2023
By Brian Weis
Manchester Country Club (MCC), one of southern Vermont's premier golf courses, has evolved from a championship golf course and club into a fun, family-oriented, club with golf, tennis and social events, youth camps, clinics, and an infusion of new inter-club activities.
The club's new leadership has recaptured the magic that began when MCC was imagined some 50+ years ago. MCC hired new GM Michelle Dougherty and Head Golf Professional Pete Weatherby in 2021, and in 2022 tapped Rob Aubin, as the new head tennis pro. A 30-year pro whose tennis programs have earned top-ranked national status, Aubin has introduced new formats, events and instruction and expanded MCC's tennis programs and participants.
In less than two years, MCC's changes have resulted in more than 130 new members with the club well on its way to reach full membership for golf and tennis.
"We have experienced a wonderful transformation of our club's culture, welcoming many new members to complement the long-standing members and families who consider MCC part of their family history," said Dougherty. CCM General Manager/COO, MCC. "We have a great mix of people with varied recreational and social interests. Whether you golf, play tennis or are looking to relax and get away from it all, MCC offers a casual club atmosphere and social events with various overlooks and views of the Green Mountains rising in the distance."
In approaching near capacity, MCC is introducing a membership promotion where new members can join in September for next year's 2023 membership. In doing so, their 2022 dues and the initiation fees for 2023 will be waived. MCC's Initiation Fee will only apply to new members who join in 2023 or after. If you join the Fall Promotion effective September 1, you pay a non-refundable deposit toward 2023 dues equal to 50% of current membership dues and play golf and tennis the rest of the season without paying 2022 dues or fees.
