Bang for the Buck: Talamore and Applecross

Talamore and Applecross earn expanded membership benefits via ClubCorp’s My Community partnership

(MONTGOMERY COUNTY/CHESTER COUNTY, PA.) —Talamore and Applecross Country Clubs have established a new relationship with ClubCorp and its “My Community Clubs” program that will produce expanded 2014 membership benefits.

The special program provides Talamore and Applecross member privileges at hundreds of private clubs in the Philadelphia area and across the country, plus a special concierge benefit for tickets to sporting events, theater and concerts. Along with the world-class golf, there are a number of other options from Adventures and Experiences to Overnight Stays and Ski Offers.

“We think this new benefit is extraordinary,” said Jon Hazelwood, general manager of Talamore CC. “When our members are traveling they don’t miss a beat. They continue to enjoy access, including golf, to private country clubs, fitness studios, spas, city and business clubs and the finest accommodations throughout the United States. We are excited and proud to be able to provide this amazing opportunity for an expanded membership.”

Hartefeld National (Tom Fazio masterpiece in the Kennett Square area) and Cherry Valley (Rees Jones gem near Princeton, N.J.) highlight the nearby Philadelphia golf opportunities, not to mention preferred access at world-class resorts like Pinehurst, LaCosta, Barton Creek, The Homestead and Hotel Del Coronado.

The Pyramid Club, The Foundation Room at the House of Blues and Capital Grille provide local dining and entertainment benefits. Meanwhile, the ticket concierge service allows members to cheer on the Flyers, Eagles, Phillies and 76ers from great seats and watch the Symphony, Ballet and Broadway shows from the front orchestra section. And hotel partners like The Ritz Carlton Hotels, Preferred Hotels of the World, Orient Express Hotels and Trains and Kimpton Hotels provide upgraded experiences and preferred pricing.

The Nicklaus-designed course at Applecross Country Club weaves through rolling countryside providing a unique-to-the-area experience for golfers. The course at Talamore Country Club was recently named Course-of-the-Year for the Pennsylvania East Chapter of the National Golf Course Owner’s Association (NGCOA). In addition, Talamore and Applecross CC members have access to the 36-hole Talamore Golf Resort in Pinehurst, N.C., featuring the Talamore Resort Course by Rees Jones and the Mid South Club by Arnold Palmer.
