In 1958, the founding seven members of Penfield Country Club, Herman Wood, Bill Rothfuss, Gordon Watson, Joe Trau, Clarence Burton, Jack Wood
and Charles Benton  envisioned a simple objective for what they wanted in a private club;
"To create a club of which Penfield can be proud of, offering recreation and hospitality to all ages and interests."
This vision continues to be the core belief of our club today.
