Burning Tree Country Club

What the members are saying about Burning Tree Country Club?

“BTCC is probably the youngest club (in average age) around Greenwich.”

” Most of us members share the common goal which is to find a club that can accommodate the whole family, in a more relaxed environment. In addition to golf and tennis, BTCC has multiple junior programs such as the summer camp and youth academy, a plethora of social events throughout the year, and a dining facility that is open year-round (except for February) that offers a variety of dining options and entertainment.  The social committee plans over 20 events throughout the year, ranging from opening casino royal to summer parties to winter gala. It’s fun for everyone and we change the theme up yearly.”

Milbrook Club

What the members are saying about Milbrook Club?

“I like the family-friendly atmosphere (“children are seen and heard”).  They have lots of events aimed at kids (NYE for example).  Also, the staff is incredible, everyone is so nice.  Huge social engagement.”

“An oasis of calm in the middle of downtown Greenwich.”

“The best thing about Milbrook are the members!  I think Milbrook is comprised of some of the warmest, most friendly people in Greenwich.  The Club’s identity is very centered around being family-friendly.  They have a lot of social offerings and the community atmosphere of the Club is really special – it’s a great place to be with your friends.  That said, our members definitely have a competitive streak and are always up to challenge one another in a sport or other activity.  One of the most entertaining new events are the Shuffle Board Tournaments that the members started this past year.  It’s a great example of the friendly competitive environment that defines Milbrook.”
