Since opening in 1963, the East Mountain Country Club has truly been a family owned and operated business. Throughout the 18-hole public golf course and banquet facility, one will meet up with a member of this close working family.
PGA Golf Professional Ted Perez Jr. manages the golf business while brother Mark is the Clubhouse Manager and also works on the grounds. Another brother, Jim Perez, is the Green Superintendent while sister Brenda (Perez) Coggin handles the arrangements for the banquets.
East Mountain was founded in 1963 by Ted Perez Sr. and his wife Maria. Today, Ted Sr. can be found at least three days a week on the Springifled golf course while Maria serves as President of East Mountain.
The Banquet Hall was founded in 1983, expanded in 1984, and again in 1998, and has been known for exceptional quality food and service ever since. The Banquet Hall can accommodate up to 250 guests for weddings, showers and parties. Our Head Chef, Patric Coggin, has over 30 years of experience and has been the only chef East Mountain has ever had. All sit down dinners and buffets are prepared on the premises by Patric and his staff. For the future, we expect the golf course and the banquet facility to grow and expand, but Family will always be the foundation upon which East Mountain Country Club was built.
In early April 2003, we re-seeded our putting greens with SR 7200 Velvet Bent Grass. This is a seventh-generation putting surface that is smoother to putt on, is more disease resistant, requires less water, and grows so thickly it keeps weeds and poa anna grasses out. It is regarded as one of the best grasses for putting greens.
Slim - April 13, 1996 - July 31, 2009
"Slim", our beloved Border Collie passed away Friday morning July 31, 2009. Slim patrolled the borders of East Mountain Country Club for over 11 years. We originally purchased Slim to rid our problem of Canada Geese. Not only did she do the job, she became a wonderful pet. She will be sorely missed around the course. On any given day you could see her in action, circling the ponds and agitating the geese until they left. She was relentless. She followed Jim or Mark wherever they went. It was a pleasure having her here for over 11 years.
Thank you Slim for a job well done,
The Perez Family
