Orland Park, Illinois (PRWEB) September 02, 2014
Over the past two-and-a-half years, Crystal Tree Golf and Country Club has grown in membership from 344 to 476 full members. Crystal Tree’s innovative approach to the club lifestyle is attracting the next generation of club members during a time when, according to a 2013 report by the National Golf Foundation, private golf club membership levels in the U.S. are down an average of 13%. As many private clubs become public or close, Crystal Tree has grown by 38%.
“We attribute our growth to our proactive response to the needs of today’s club member. We’ve positioned ourselves as a resort-caliber club offering exceptional amenities for members of all ages. We’ve created a family experience in a welcoming and vibrant environment,” said Crystal Tree board president Jim Troy.
Deviating from the more traditional private club model, Crystal Tree Golf and Country Club offers activities for the entire family. Generous amenities include the challenging and immaculately maintained Robert Trent Jones, Jr. Signature Golf Course, clay tennis courts, a full-service swimming pool with over 11,000 square feet of sun deck, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and several elegant dining rooms. The club also hosts a variety of special events throughout the year, including holiday meals, live entertainment, golf events, and a wide range of programs for children.
Bob Eberhardt experienced the Crystal Tree welcome when he joined the club in November 2013. “It's the friendliest club that I have belonged to,” said Eberhardt. “It filled an entire set of lifestyle needs for me. It became a new social outlet. I did not know that I was going to enjoy it as much as I do. I wish I did it ten years ago.”
Member satisfaction plays a significant role in the club’s success: 90% of the club’s growth is the result of referrals.
Crystal Tree has launched a new website, http://www.crystaltreecc.org, to provide a comprehensive overview of its facility and accommodate increasing memberships.
