WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. - More than 75 people are set to be laid off at the popular Elmwood Country Club in White Plains, according to a notice filed with the New York State Department of Labor last month.
As of Sept. 30, 76 people will be out of a job at the club, according to the worker adjustment and retraining (WARN) notice that was filed on June 27. The company cited a plant closing as the reason for the layoffs.
The club has been on the market for several months as they attempt to sell. Elmwood Country Club, which is a “USGA Local Qualifier” is a member-owned club that spans more than 100 acres. It includes several driving ranges, a golf learning center and year-round programming.
According to Keen-Summit Capital Partners , the company helping to facilitate the sale, the club had 250 members and a total revenue of $6.5 million in 2016.
“This beautiful year-round, member-owned private club features a 6,600-yard, Tillinghast-designed 18-hole golf course along with driving ranges and practice facilities; tennis center with six Har-Tru courts and winter bubble; an Olympic-sized swimming pool and cabana facilities; and year-round fitness facilities. The stunning clubhouse, with restaurant and banquet facilities, overlooks the pool and first tee.
“The Club is supported by its core membership and continues to sell new memberships and to book private parties and special events (such as) weddings, confirmations, bar and bat mitzvahs, as it has for nearly 100 years.”
