A Grand Future Today, 120 years since its founding, The Weston Golf Club caters to the social and sporting needs of its membership, providing gourmet din- ing, tennis courts, paddle courts, swimming pool, bowling lanes, youth sports programs, and a summer kids club in addition to recreational and competitive golf. Long gone are the days of dodging cattle. In fact, "members have great access to the course," says Dr. Thomas Burke, Golf Committee Chairman. This element of the golfing experience at Weston has remained the same over the years and is one of the priorities of the club directors. "Today, all members have full golf privileges and new members can play golf right away." Peter Sykes, a Wellesley resident who has been a member of The Weston Golf Club since 1953, adds, "I can go out on a Saturday or Sunday and pick up a game with anyone." 80 W e l l e s l e y W e s t o n M a g a z i n e | f a l l 2 0 1 4 Did You Know ?
