JEFF ANDES, Director of Member Relations

As a long time employee of the private club industry, I have learned a lot in my travels.

Whether it is visiting Philadelphia area clubs or traveling to different regions of the country attending events for the Club Managers Association of America. I have seen clubs of different spectrum; from Colonial Country Club who has held the Colonial Tournament every year since 1946 to The City Club of Fort Worth, an impeccable athletic and social club. These clubs all may have different goals and attract different types of people, however there is one thing that they have in common; they exist to provide services to a vast membership. In my role here at The ACE Club it is my goal to ensure your happiness and satisfaction with this fine club.

With that in mind I am focused on you and your experience at The ACE Club. I hope that those of you who have engaged with me and offered feedback have seen that I am committed to this task as we continue to make progress. A few of our recent updates include enhancements at the halfway house a new Grille menu, new chef for The Grille, a self-serve La Colombe coffee station and more to come.

Please continue to engage me as I am here to serve our membership.

On a final note please join me in wishing Daniel Briones good luck as he leaves Chubb and The ACE Club to pursue a new career opportunity. Going forward I will continue in my current role, while also taking on some additional responsibilities for both the Club and Conference Center.


I want to congratulate Billy Stewart on a fine showing at the PGA National Club Professional Championship this past month.

Billy qualified last year for this event for the first time and did a great job in making both the cuts which put him in the top 70 in the country of club professionals. Congratulations to Billy for a good showing!

Greetings from the Grounds Department, where no one is allowed to use the expression “That is right as rain”.

It is hard to believe that it is July! We are well into the smells of the green of summer, long golfing days, vacations, and Four Ball matches. On the golf course, we have put the out of the ordinary spring weather behind us and look forward to moving on to a warmer and drier summer season.

Thanks to member feedback we have replaced the divot bottles at the Par 3 tees with a more user friendly box that will keep the mix dry.

Have a Happy Fourth of July! See you at the turn!


Summer is finally here!

Thank you for everyone who joined us for our Father’s Day Golf and BBQ. As we are now in full swing of summer, we look forward to a great season at The Club! Please be sure to join us on Thursday, July 26th for a conversation about Whiskey from around the world through a guided tasting with a true expert. Our guest host Brian Freedman, Forbes wine and spirits contributor, has personally designed a fantastic evening of Whiskey tasting and a Whiskey inspired dinner menu so please be sure to contact me to book your reservation.

I am thrilled to join the The ACE Club as Director of Membership.

With our superior customer service, fun-filled tournaments, and our atmosphere of camaraderie, competiveness and excitement… I am confident that we will continue to be recognized as a premier golf club.

Please welcome our newest member, Dr. Benjamin Lam and his family. Dr. Lam is a golf enthusiast from Bucks County. His wife, Emily, and their children, Brendan and Jordyn, are also excited to spend time with our golf pros on the driving range. Join me in welcoming and getting acquainted with the Lam family and please invite Dr. Lam to join you on the course so that he can get away from his responsibilities in the office and enjoy everything our membership has to offer. Welcome aboard, Dr. Lam!

I’m so happy that you all enjoy this club and the spectacular course. And so, I would appreciate it if you would assist me in my efforts to connect me with anyone you know, who you feel may be a fit for membership at The ACE Club. I hope that in the next few weeks, I will get to say hello to each one of you as I see you at The Club. I look forward to getting to know you and your families, as I help to build on the great friendships that are made here.
