Glendora Country Club is anticipating continued growth to its membership as it seeks to expand its marketing and awareness efforts which are focused largely on helping area residents understand the benefits of membership within this family-oriented neighborhood club.
“Membership is not just about one person, or just golf anymore,” said Mr. Shelton. “Clubs are more about creating a lifestyle for the entire family – one where camaraderie with friends take place, business connections flourish, and great memories are created for children. I’m excited to be at Glendora Country Club because it has a special environment that blends the traditions of a classic Club with the lifestyle programming for today’s families.”
