Wentworth and Crescent Oaks Golf Clubs Adapt New Rates to Seasons

Tarpon Springs, FL, November 24, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Once private Wentworth Golf Club and Crescent Oaks Country Club are now joined together by local owner Ace Golf. Both clubs now feature golf and social membership pricing at new, lower rates announced November 1. Golfers and social members alike can now enjoy the benefits of two upscale golf and social clubs at a price less than half of what it cost just 5 years ago.

Golf membership rates are heavily discounted during the slower, 6-month “off-season” from May to October when most people play less golf, and greens fees drop. This is a radical change from typical club membership pricing that is the same, higher rate year-round.

With other single club memberships averaging $300-500/month, Ace Golf ‘s membership offers significant value at $79-$154/mo. single to $114-194/mo. family. Rates vary by age group and are an average of a discounted, off-season rate (May-Oct) and an in-season rate (Nov-Apr). Only 125 memberships will be offered at each club.

The Ace Golf membership offers 54 holes of golf with amenities including complimentary range balls, walking privileges, reciprocal play at sister club Pebble Creek Golf Club, and 2 free guests passes every month to entertain family, friends and business associates.

Whether you join as a member or play Wentworth or Crescent Oaks as a walk-in guest, players will find two very different golf courses, both designed by Steve Smyers. Wentworth is more challenging for the seasoned player with narrow fairways and deep bunkers set amongst million dollar homes. Crescent Oaks appeals to a wider range of players with its longer, more forgiving fairways secluded by the Brooker Creek Preserve. Both golf courses are recently renovated with new greens, overseeded fairways, and tees to suit players of all levels. The clubs have updated clubhouses, fitness and tennis facilities (Crescent Oaks), new restaurants, and active social programs designed for groups of all ages.

Those that don’t play golf may take advantage of another membership “first”: free social membership valid at both clubs. Social members enjoy weekly Member-Only Dinners, Happy Hours, Wine Tastings, Dances, Kid’s Activities, Card Games, Holiday Parties, and more. Ace Golf offers single memberships at $39/month and family memberships at $59/mo. Members that spend that amount monthly at Wentworth or Crescent Oaks restaurants do not pay the membership fee.

For short-term residents, Seasonal Memberships are available, something not offered at many clubs. At the new lower rates, many Canadian and northern members are joining year-round at the same cost that they previously paid for 6 month memberships.

Both Wentworth and Crescent Oaks Golf Clubs are located in gated communities off of East Lake Road near Keystone Road. Guests and visitors are welcome and freely admitted through the gates.

Crescent Oaks Country Club (crescentoaksgolf.com) is ½ mile north of Keystone at 3300 Crescent Oaks Blvd., Tarpon Springs. The club opened in 1989 on 198 acres abutting the Brooker Creek Preserve and features a par-72 golf course, driving range, 8 tennis courts (6 clay), large banquet center and a new fitness center. To make a tee time, phone (727) 937-4653.

Sister course, Wentworth Golf Club (wentworthgolfclub.org), is at the first light south of Keystone Road. The club opened in 1990 in the affluent Wentworth subdivision at 2990 Wentworth Way, Tarpon Springs and features a par-71 golf course, driving range, Irish Pub and banquet center. To make a tee time, phone (727) 942-4760.
