The Macallan Makes History at The Westchester Country Club
What better setting for an exclusive, extraordinary historic event—Westchester’s first formal tasting of high-end scotch whisky—than in the wood-paneled Westchester Room of the historic and prestigious Westchester Country Club, where exclusive and extraordinary meet! After all, it’s where such notables as Joe DiMaggio played golf as a member guest, New York Governor Al Smith was a popular visitor, Ed Sullivan broadcast his “Toast of the Town’ television show live, and President Richard Nixon attended a wedding.
When the Westchester Country Club—the first of its kind in the world—officially opened on May 15, 1922, nearly 1,500 members joined with an initiation fee of $25. The Beach Club alone claimed 800 bathhouses, tennis and handball courts, an expansive saltwater pool, a seven-acre lagoon for swimming and canoeing, and parking for 700 cars. The country club also introduced 45 holes of golf, three polo fields, bridle path, horse racing track, and 15 tennis courts.
Today, the family-friendly country club, host to this year’s KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, continues to live up to its exceptional reputation with world-class facilities that include two championship golf courses, a Beach Club on the Long Island Sound, and all-inclusive tennis and squash facilities. The comprehensive Main Club now encompasses roughly 55 member apartments and 70 luxury suites and guest rooms, complemented by dining rooms, banquet rooms, conference facilities, and seasonal accommodations for outdoor terrace dining and golf snack bars. Not to mention all the amenities imaginable from barber shop to pool and fitness center.
With The Macallan Seminar & Tasting, the storied country club now adds yet another notch to its historic back story.
