GOLF, SWIMMING, TENNIS, ANYONE?
The Oneonta Country Club recently reached an agreement with the Oneonta Tennis Club as part of a marketing strategy to attract families, a club official said.
From May 1 through Labor Day, Oneonta Country Club members will be eligible for tennis and pool privileges at the Oneonta Tennis Club, 32 Rose Ave., said Steve Hiscox, membership and marketing director for the golf club.
All 18 holes on the golf course are open, the club’s website said.
Also, to attract families, Oneonta Country Club, 9 Country Club Drive, this year is offering free golf for members’ children aged 18 and younger, Hiscox said. Membership benefits are being expanded because the Country Club has fewer than 20 members younger than 45, he said.
The Country Club offers a variety of packages for single, couple and family memberships with some introductory rates. Information is available on the club’s website at www.oneontacountryclub.org or by calling 432-9074.
