Ekwanok members have a long history of entertaining family and friends at our Club. Whether it is on the golf course, tennis court, bridge table, for lunch on the verandah, or for one of the lovely summer dinners or lobster bakes, guests, accompanied by a member, are most welcome to enjoy the beauty of our course and the traditions of Ekwanok, as well as the friendliness of our members and staff.
Ekwanok is excited to open its completely-renovated dining room and new Tap room this summer. The Clubhouse and adjacent lawn offer spectacular views across the golf course to the Green Mountains. There are several locations, indoors and out, for enjoying lunch, casual drinks, and the view of the beautiful mountains. We also encourage members and their guests to visit the Founders Room where much of Ekwanok’s 115 year history is on display together with a wonderful collection of golf memorabilia.
2014 represents the Centennial of Francis Ouimet’s historic win in the National Amateur Championship at Ekwanok. Although well-known today for his dramatic victory in the 1913 U.S. Open, Ouimet’s life-long ambition was to win the National Amateur Championship – which he did twice, the first time at Ekwanok. A special collection of many of the treasured archives from the 1914 period will be on display at the Club during the Centennial summer of 2014.
Tom Mackey, our PGA Professional, and his fine staff will welcome golfing guests and members to Ekwanok. There is a bag drop just in front of the Golf Shop, the smaller white building on your left as you drive into the Clubhouse parking area. Ekwanok is a non-tipping club; however this does not apply to our fine caddies, who are independent contractors. A suggested caddie fee sign is posted at the Golf Shop, and either members or guests may handle caddie fee and gratuity. Our Golf Shop also carries a fine line of clothing, shoes and equipment, and credit cards are accepted in the Pro Shop.
Joan Teaford is our Director of Tennis and offers lessons and clinics to members and guests throughout the summer season, Thursdays through Sundays. Ekwanok has plans to build and additional two tennis courts this summer, bringing our court total to four.
Clubhouse Manager Bill Gaiotti and his staff look forward to welcoming guests of members to Ekwanok. Guests meeting a member at Ekwanok are asked to check in at the office off the main lobby in the clubhouse or at the Golf Shop.
We also invite your attention to the Club Info section of the Website to note dress code, cell and electronic device policies, etc. Members are responsible for their guests’ familiarization with all Club policies, and we request that all guests, including children and grandchildren, observe our dress code.
