SAM Magazine—Windham, N.Y., Feb. 26, 2013—Windham Mountain Resort has entered into a memorandum of understanding with Windham Country Club to make the club part of the resort. A majority of the club’s shareholders have approved the sale to Windham Mountain Partners, the ownership group behind Windham Mountain.

Windham has been focused on developing year round business, and the addition of the club is part of that effort. “While details of the acquisition remain to be finalized, we are optimistic that they will be completed quickly, and we anticipate being ready for opening day,” said Randy MacDonald, managing partner of Windham Mountain Partners.

“Being ready” is not as simple as completing the paperwork. The country club was damaged by Hurricane Irene in 2011. The club’s board began restoration of the former 18-hole golf course, but the destruction proved to be a difficult obstacle to overcome.

“We look forward to continuing the restoration that the board began and will return the golf course to its former glory,” said MacDonald. Windham plans to make additional improvements across all aspects of the operation from the course to the clubhouse.
