New Member Onboarding

.01

CLUB LIFE

at its fullest

Two clubhouses, two golf courses, three swimming pools, countless dining venues, and a tradition of welcoming new Members that spans well beyond a centennial.

Only one Club champions it all, and I’m honored to introduce a celebrated, four seasons lifestyle that comes activated beyond belief. 

Without further ado, allow me to signal the sounds of summertime shotgun starts and midwinter duckpin bowling lanes; ignite the warmth of fireside lounges and pizza oven patio nights; decant a wine culture that summons the world over and, most importantly, animate the all-important sense of connection tying our Club culture together.

The grand reveals pick up here with our New Member Onboarding Program. Each week spotlights the different perks, programs, and personnel that make Baltimore Country Club your everyday escape for dining well, competing often, and celebrating always.

And away we go.

The new “in-town” Clubhouse was formally opened.

The duckpin bowling lanes were built and remain in use today.

The grass tennis courts at Roland Park were selected by the National Lawn Tennis Association to host the qualifying rounds for the Davis Cup matches.

The Club’s swim complex was first built.
