MALVERN, PA – White Manor Country Club, the storied member-owned private club in the Philadelphia suburb of Malvern, Pennsylvania, completed its recapitalization with Concert Golf Partners, the boutique owner-operator of high-end private clubs, on December 31st. The transaction, overwhelmingly approved by the club’s Board o fDirectors and its members, paid off all club debt, lowered annual member dues by 10-15%, injected more than $1 million into immediate capital projects at the club and barred any future assessments on the membership.
Nearly three centuries ago in 1711, the 187 acres of magnificent, rolling panorama were part of a 500-acre tract of land granted by William Penn to the Evans family. Operated since that time by succeeding generations of the same family as a dairy farm, the striking views in Chester County’s hunt country were preserved and even enhanced when ,in 1962, White Manor Country Club bought the land from the Evans family and created its new home. Today, White Manor boasts one of Philadelphia’s most beautiful and challenging golf courses; it was redesigned and renovated in 2003 by renowned, award-winning course designer, Bobby Weed, at a cost of more than $6 million.
