Current social clubs include Mahjongg, duplicate bridge, mixed bowling, ladies bowling league and paddle tennis.

 

Reciprocal Clubs

Albany Country Club has golf course and dining reciprocity with several clubs in the Capital District. There are certain events at Albany Country Club that would preclude members from playing their own course. Examples of such events that would allow for reciprocity are Member-Guest, guest days, invitational and interclubs. Albany Country Club also has formal reciprocity with clubs outside the area. It is not necessary for an event to be held at Albany for members to take advantage of these courses. Reciprocity arrangements must be made through the ACC Golf Shop and are subject to the reciprocal club's availability and their rules and regulations.

 

Cross-Country Ski Trails

The grounds staff clears the cross country ski or snow shoe trails that wind throughout the entire property. The use of these facilities is for members only and is monitored closely to prevent non-members from trespassing on Club property. Anyone interested in skiing is asked to register in the clubhouse office to receive a map of the trails. We ask that you stay on the designated trails and do not ski on the golf course fairways or green.

 

Hunting on Club Property

Tennis or Golf Members who wish to hunt on Club property are asked to register in the clubhouse office. We carefully monitor who is on the property and will maintain a list of all members who wish to hunt on our grounds and their vehicle plate numbers.

 

Hiking/Walking Trails

The grounds staff continues to clear and maintain the walking trails that wind around our property. We ask that anyone wishing to utilize these trails register in the Club Office and receive maps of the ski/hiking trails. The use of these facilities is for members only and is monitored closely to prevent non-members from trespassing on Club land.
