Head Golf Professional Phil Leiss stated, “We are thrilled to have this legend visit Ferncroft CC and the North Shore. Nick Faldo held the #1 spot in the Official World Golf Rankings for a total of 98 weeks and won 40 PGA tournaments. It will be a fantastic opportunity to get up-close and personal with this accomplished golfer. We’re trying to keep the atmosphere intimate.”
The Ferncroft CC Junior Golf Scholarship Program seeks to nurture disadvantaged young people ages 8-16 by providing access, instruction, and equipment to introduce them to golf.
Since owner Affinity Management (www.affinitymanagement.com) purchased the club in 2006, over $3 million in restorations have been completed. These included fully renovating and reopening the previously dormant 19th Hole restaurant, building a new multi-section golf practice area, performing drainage work on 14 holes, repaving the cart paths and installing a fitness room filled with top-of-the-line equipment.
Known for its Robert Trent Jones, Sr. designed championship golf course that hosted the LPGA Boston Five Classic from 1980-90, Ferncroft Country Club is a full-service club with outstanding food, many social and children’s activities, tennis courts, swimming pool, and fitness center. Set on an idyllic 287 acres, Ferncroft CC's lush greens are in an incredibly convenient location, just nineteen minutes north of downtown Boston where Route 1 meets I-95 on the North Shore.
