Have you been to The Chippanee Country Club lately? If not, you should check it out and here’s why:
“Renovations include a new gazebo area in the front of the property, plus enhancements to the lobby, restrooms, and bridal suite. Many renovations are still underway including creating a huge outdoor patio with a gas fireplace that will create an inviting gathering place for warm evenings. The new ownership team, in conjunction with the board and new committee structure, has promised to do one major project each year, in addition to the upgrades that have take place throughout the club.
Voted “Best Golf Course Restaurant in Bristol” by readers of the Bristol Press in 2014 and 2015, the dining room at Chippanee is now open to the public by reservation only, for limited dinner seating every night. “Chippanee has one of the best restaurants in Bristol, with awesome food,” says John Leone, a longtime club member, former Mayor and past President of the Greater Bristol Chamber of Commerce.
Sports are the underpinning of Chippanee, however, and the upgrading of the golf facilities, the pool, and the tennis courts has enhanced an already stellar program to attract more members. Golf Pro Gary Sassu, a fixture at the club for more than 20 years, has been recognized for running the best junior golf program in the state of Connecticut for several years. Tennis Pro Ryan Battisto also offers classes to a wide range of ages and levels of expertise and individual lessons are available in tennis, golf, and swimming.
To learn more about these upgrades, the restaurant or membership options, visit www.chippanee.com or give them a call at 860-589-5645.”
