New specialized expertise bring elevated member experience to food and beverage and golf course quality.
The Muttontown Club announces the hiring of three key positions: Beryl Pearmund as clubhouse manager, Ted Steffensen as golf course superintendent, and Ethan Haveman as assistant superintendent.
“Bringing the specialized resources of these highly qualified individuals reinforces our commitment to bring a superior experience to our members,” says Friedrich Eder, general manager and chief operating officer, The Muttontown Club.
As clubhouse manager, Beryl Pearmund brings more than 25 years of experience in the culinary arts, most recently serving as clubhouse manager for Desert Mountain Club in Scottsdale Ariz., a member-owned private golf club. Prior to Desert Mountain she worked for The Phoenician Resort and the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, where she held management positions in restaurants, banquets and events planning departments. Born and raised in Brighton, England, Pearmund attended culinary school and worked in the field prior to moving to the United States in 1985.
Ted Steffensen, a native of Long Island, has joined The Muttontown Club as golf course superintendent. With more than 15 years of experience in successfully managing golf operations and maintenance, Steffensen has an extensive background in agronomy and a degree from SUNY Delhi in turfgrass management. Joining Ted on the golf course maintenance team is Ethan Haveman, who grew up farming in rural Iowa. After obtaining his degree in turf management at Southeast Technical Institute, he worked at Oakland Hills Country Club in Detroit, Mich., which was highlighted by the club’s hosting of the 2008 PGA Championship.
The Muttontown Club’s 18-hole, Alfred H. Tull-designed golf course stretches more than 6,500 yards, and features intricate greens and a double-sided driving range. With plenty of opportunity for competitive and casual play for men and women alike, the golf course is impeccably maintained. Other amenities include an engaging social calendar, and a tennis and free-form pool complex with kiddie playground. Although it is typical for clubs in the area to close (or substantially restrict services) over the winter, The Muttontown Club is open 12 months of the year, provides high quality dining at fair prices, and has an indoor golf simulator for year-round enjoyment.
