Summer’s right around the corner. Have you figured out how you’re going to spend it yet? More important, do you really want to spend it on the Parkway, schlepping down the shore every weekend? We think not. In fact, we know it. We know you’d rather spend your hard-earned downtime on much more civilized, relaxing pursuits. That’s where a Resort Membership to Edgewood Country Club of River Vale comes in.
Not only is Edgewood Country Club of River Vale right in your own backyard, it’s brimming with resort-worthy amenities and more athletic, social, and family-fun activities than you and your family will know what to do with. There’s golf. There’s tennis. There’s a state-of-the-art fitness center. A seriously swanky pool. A playground and summer camp for the kids. Sports lessons and leagues for everyone in the family. Multiple restaurants and bars. Parties, BBQs, and holiday celebrations. There are even childcare services so you can disappear into a juicy novel or get a much-needed massage in the spa room.
What’s more, this full-service private club, which completed a multi-million dollar renovation last year, is absolutely stunning. (Watch this video to see for yourself.) Allow us to walk you through this fantasyland of family leisure:
Let’s start with the heated outdoor pool, complete with a shallow area for kids and private swimming lessons. The service is world class: if you don’t want to leave your lounge chair, you can order cocktails poolside. The locker rooms are brand spanking new. The private cabanas are equipped with smart TVs, fans, and mini fridges so your clan stays happy and comfy throughout the day. And each Sunday brings a family-friendly poolside BBQ as well as a variety of kids’ activities.
If golf is more your speed, Edgewood’s 27-hole golf course has you covered. Cutting edge performance tools like TrackMan, Balance Plate, FlightScope, and K-Vest help improve your game on the course. A short game practice facility features two chipping greens, two greenside bunkers, two putting greens, and a grass driving range. The PGA Jr. League team
gives kids the chance to learn from golf pros. And the Midway Bar & Grill, conveniently located in the middle of the golf course, serves casual breakfast, lunch, and drinks.
For tennis buffs, Edgewood features six professionally maintained Har-Tru clay tennis courts. Edgewood Touring Professional Aaron Krickstein will be at the Club on Sunday, June 10th to play in an exhibition match and offer clinics. If the gym is your bag, you’ll love the fitness center loaded with a full suite of cardio and strength-training equipment, plus functional weights, free weights, and on-demand Wellbeats workouts. And if you’re feeling sore after all that exercise, certified massage therapists offer on-site treatment in the Club’s dedicated massage room.
No need to worry about keeping your younger kids occupied at the Club once they tire of swimming, putting, and staring at their screens. Between the Kids Zone activity center and the outdoor playground, they’ll have plenty to do. When you need a complete break, send them over to the Fun Fort so Edgewood’s babysitting staff can mind them a while. If they’re athletically inclined or aspire to be, put them in the Kids Sports Camp at the end of June or end of August. The Kids Block Parties on Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends also will keep them busy, as will the July 3rd fireworks for this year’s Independence Day. But no need to feel left out, Mom and Dad. The Club offers weekly table games -- think Bridge, Canasta and Mah Jongg -- just for you.
And let’s not forget fine dining. Eating poolside, on the links, or at the outdoor BBQs aren’t your only options. For the ultimate foodie experience, visit the Clubhouse for the scrumptious creations of Executive Chef Anthony Villanueva. Besides offering seasonal lunch and à la carte dinner items, Edgewood bakes all its bread, pastries, and desserts in-house.
The luxurious fun doesn’t have to end when back-to-school season hits. Club memberships apply year-round. Consider Edgewood your home away from home any time you need a change of scenery or have a special occasion or holiday to celebrate, including Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Rosh Hashanah, Thanksgiving, and more.
