"Soon after my wife and I joined Kensington we felt we were part of a family. Because of the unassuming, friendly nature of the membership, we were quickly able to make connections through our sports and social activities. In fact, we know more people here than at our club up north where we have been members for 30 years."
- Richard Adams, Member of Kensington Golf & Country Club since 2002
