Looking for a fun and affordable way to safely enjoy activities with the whole family? The Fox Hill Club is the destination you have been seeking. The Club offers a championship golf course, pool and cabana, tennis, fitness facility and many social events designed to appeal to all ages and abilities. Rates are affordable and the activities are inclusive.
Pat Miller, General Manager; Ryan Naab, Membership Sales and Marketing Manager; and Vicky Tardif, Event Sales and Marketing Manager; discuss with the Longmont Leader why families can enjoy The Club in confidence anytime, even during COVID-19.
In addition to upholding recommended health guidelines, The Club recognizes that people need a safe space for exercise and social interaction.
“In a normal year we will hold at least three events for members and their guests, some for families, some for kids, and some for adults,” says the management team. “This year with COVID-19, we are slowly ramping up our social calendar; we have events planned but with safe capacity limits.”
The Club provides many opportunities for children to discover a lifelong passion.
“We have a fantastic junior golf program as well as a swim team made up of members’ children that compete against other Northern Colorado teams,” management explains. “We also have a fantastic tennis community lead by our tennis pro Judi Laursen. We do clinics and camps in addition to one-on-one lessons.”
Of course, the newest social activity, pickleball, is available too.
Members make friends at the club, often using those friendships to organize games and (online) watch parties. During major holidays, themed events hosted by the club, such as the 4th of July BBQ and spooky Halloween fun, give new friends even more opportunities to connect.
The crowing jewel of The Club is the golf course.
“This is one of Northern Colorado’s finest courses,” says the management team. “It sits on the highest elevation point in Longmont which provides many beautiful views. Our greens feature an 18-hole championship course designed by Frank Hummel and modified under a master plan designed by Dick Phelps. It was officially inaugurated when Lt. Governor John Vanderhoof hit the first tee shot in 1972.
“The now mature course provides all the challenge and scenic beauty you've come to expect from the region's exclusive private clubs. The parkland style, 130-acre course contains beautifully manicured fairways lined by over 1,200 trees. Eleven fairway bunkers define the driving areas and 33 strategically placed greenside bunkers challenge approaches to the greens. Finally, the course provides 10 water features that come into play on 10 holes and a stream that runs through and along 4 others.”
They continue, “The golf course has six sets of tee markers ranging from just over 5,400 yards from the forward markers to over 7,100 yards from the championship markers. Aside from the challenge, the serenity and beauty of the course is unmatched in the region.”
“The course is moderately easy to walk, and the layout requires the full range of shot making. Members never feel like they are playing the same course day in and day out.”
After a busy day of golf, tennis, swimming, fitness, or pickleball, you don’t have to go far to enjoy the highest standard of refreshments. Simply head over to the restaurant for Chef Miguel’s creations.
“Our Chef prides himself on supporting local and sourcing food from sustainable vendors whenever possible. Chef Miguel has sourced local produce from Hazel Dell mushrooms, squash from Munson Farms, and ocean fare through Northeast Seafood. In the bar, Danny Anderavka works diligently to procure local beer, wine and spirts. Our bar currently features Longtucky Spirits, Colterris wine, and craft beer in draft from several local breweries including Wibby, Collison, and Breckenridge Brewery.”
The clubhouse, which opened in 2000, was recently renovated; Fox Hill Club ensures that all the amenity spaces keep pace with modern design and safe usage. This includes the rentable venues, which range from 670 square feet to 1,600 square feet.
The team notes, “Our venues are used for social events, both hosted by the club and for outside events. Our meeting rooms are a great place for members to hold business meetings or to bring clients in for a round of golf or a meal.”
The management team concludes, “We do everything with our members in mind, trying to give the best possible experience in private club membership. Members have certain expectations when they join a club and our goal is to exceed those expectations.”
