Philadelphia-Area Family Focused Club Offers Golf, Swimming and Dining
DALLAS - ClubCorp – The World Leader in Private Clubs® (NYSE: MYCC) – announces the acquisition of North Hills Country Club, a premier member-owned country club, founded in 1908 located just north of downtown Philadelphia. ClubCorp has plans for a multimillion-dollar reinvention that will bring new amenities, improvements and upgrades to the club.
“We are proud to add North Hills Country Club, an exceptional club rich in history and family traditions, to our portfolio of clubs,” said Mark Burnett, ClubCorp COO and president. “The club allows us to expand to three clubs in the Philadelphia market, perfectly complementing our Hartefeld National club in Avondale and the newly reinvented Pyramid Club located downtown.”
“The members are extremely excited about ClubCorp acquiring North Hills,” said Del Markward, president of the club. “They are a world-class organization that brings an expansive network of benefits and opportunities and a proven track record of improving newly acquired clubs. This is a win-win relationship for our club, the members and ClubCorp.”
North Hills Country Club offers a true old-style championship golf course with tree lined fairways and small greens with the original design by J. Franklin Meehan. Additional amenities include casual and upscale dining, state-of-the-art swimming facility with three swimming pools – heated competition lap pool, resort-style zero entry pool and wading pool – and private event and meeting space that can accommodate up to 200.
North Hills members will be eligible to participate in ClubCorp's unique O.N.E.
