Welcome to Lookaway Golf Club, where membership is a lifestyle.
by Jennifer Updike

When considering a private golf club membership, most look only at the amenities that the club has to offer them. The golf course itself is usually at the top of the list, but there are also certain lifestyle considerations the best clubs provide that are equally important—so finding the right fit could be a challenge. 
The management and members of Lookaway Golf Club understand that their lifestyle is defined as an integration of activities, interests, and values. Delivering on the promise of a great golf course and an intimate relationship with the various generations of its members requires a commitment. That was the concept of the like-minded golfers who became the founders of Lookaway Golf Club 20 years ago. Their goal of creating a private-equity golf club that combined a socially intimate environment, with a pure golf experience, was not only accomplished but also improved upon. Attention to detail and delivering on exceptional personalized service are hallmarks of that improvement.
The golf course, known for its design by renowned course architect Rees Jones, is a challenging and fun experience for all levels of golfers. The ambiance of solitude Jones created on the course is equally reflected throughout the property. It is the only course in Bucks County on the top 20 list of the “Best in Pennsylvania” by Golf Digest
With only 229 partners and no tee times, Lookaway offers the convenience and flexibility of playing 18, nine, or just a few holes at a time. The club’s longtime caddie master makes new members feel welcome, serving as the course’s concierge in putting a game together. While carts are available, many members prefer to walk such a great course with experienced caddies.
Lookaway’s multigreen short-game facility, separate driving range, and multiple chipping areas and practice greens help golfers continue to hone all aspects of their game. The golf professionals are always available and ready to assist, complete with launch monitors and video capabilities.
The inviting stone clubhouse of traditional Bucks County architecture features a bar, grillroom and dining room. Outside, a large outdoor covered terrace overlooks the 18th green, rated as one of the best finishing holes in the Philadelphia area. 
For those considering a golf membership, Lookaway is presently offering participation in its Membership Preview Program for 2019. It provides prospective partners with full golf and dining privileges while waiting for a share to become available. This glimpse into the “Lookaway Lifestyle” may be just what prospective members are looking for in a golf club, as well as a sanctuary for relaxation.
