With many golf courses languishing because of the poor weather this spring, The Keene Country Club is offering a “Test Drive” promotion so golfers and families have the opportunity to experience what a full service country club has to offer.
For a limited time, until the end of June, new members can enjoy golf and other recreational privileges for the rest of the year at half-price, without initiation fees or stock purchase requirements. The Club offers Full Family, Couples, Individual, and Young Adult membership categories.
Many improvements have been made over the last year on this historical property (one of the oldest country clubs in the country). A full renovation of the pool house is now complete, and the refurbished pool area opened over Memorial Day Weekend.
The vintage Wayne Stiles golf course is in excellent condition, and with a fleet of 50 new electric golf carts, KCC offers golfers the chance to play the challenging course without tee times. PGA Professional Barry “Pudge” Pearson and Assistant Pro CJ Konkowski operate a fully-stocked Pro Shop and offer group lessons. A junior golf camp begins in late June and extends through July.
The Club welcomes back Tennis Pro, Tami Vezina, who will offer lessons and clinics to players of all ages. The newly re-surfaced tennis courts include two pickleball courts -a sport that is sweeping the nation!
“We’ve made leaps and bounds in improving the facilities and upgrading our services over the last year.“ says newly appointed General Manager, Dan Dodge. “We want the community to tour the club, and find out what fun they can have here in their own backyard this summer!”
To find out more about this promotion and other membership options, please contact Judi Alexander at, firstname.lastname@example.org or visit us on the web at www.keenecountryclub.com.
Are you ready to dive into summer? We sure are!

The renovations to the Pool House, Phase II, are well underway: re-coating the chipped deck, replacing those painted 2 X 6 columns, completing landscaping around the building, and replacing and patching the worn clapboards on the outside.
And, the new look of a refurbished Pool House will be enhanced with new poolside furniture!
Here’s Rob cleaning the pool in anticipation of its opening on Memorial Day Weekend.
We’re looking forward to seeing you by the pool this summer!

Congrats to Barbara McNamara, who submitted a recipe for Mushroom Soup to our ongoing Soup of the Month Contest! You may have already seen it on the menu and given it a try, but if not, come visit!
1 oz dried cremini mushrooms (I use a European blend from Whole Foods)
1 cup dry white wine
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 lb or more of a variety of fresh mushrooms cleaned and chopped
2 cups whole milk
2 cups heavy cream
@ three cups chicken stock
Salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp Cognac
Snipped fresh chives for garnish
Combine the dried cremini and white wine in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over Med-high heat. Simmer for five minutes, remove from heat and let stand for out 15 minutes. Reserve for later.
Melt butter over medium heat in a large stockpot. Add the chopped mushrooms and sauté until they begin to exclude their juices. Add the reserved cremini with the liquid as well as the milk and cream. Bring to a boil stirring occasionally. Lower the heat and simmer the soup, uncovered for 45 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Purée the hot soup in batches until smooth. Return the soup to a large clean pot and thin by stirring in the chicken stock. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the Cognac.
If you put too much hot soup in the blender you will have a big mess in the kitchen!
This is a recipe from “Pedaling Through Burgundy Cookbook ” by Sarah Leah Chase. I have modified amounts of ingredients and modified the types of mushrooms! Enjoy!
