Ferncroft Country Club
Ferncroft Country Club is conveniently located at the intersection of route 1 and 95. Follow the signs to Ferncroft Road and you'll pass a Crowne Plaza Hotel and Cocoa Key Water Park, then a business park and apartment buildings, followed by fairway view townhomes and quiet single family homes. You truly are in a golf community. Come to the entrance in the summer months and you may see the bleachers set up for the Boston Lobsters Pro Tennis League. This year highlighted by Anna Kournikova and Martina Hingis Tennis takes place near the pool area with towel service, a full bar with cabana service. We haven't even come to the golf course yet. There is a 7 hole executive course along with two practice greens and a large driving range, which just had the turf recently re-done.
Ferncroft Country Club is a Robert Trent Jones Sr. Championship Design. It was home to the LPGA Boston Five Classic from 1980-1990. The 13th Hole was ranked one of the most difficult holes in New England and the 18th is considered one of the most scenic finishing holes on the North Shore.
Currently, there are some Annual Memberships available, however, the there is a wait list for Junior Membership's.
Ferncroft hosts corporate outings and charity events every Monday. Only one October Monday outing spot still available.
