About The Union League Golf Club at Torresdale:

On March 6, 2014 the League's leadership presented the membership with a detailed plan to create a unique partnership with Torresdale Frankford Country Club. After several Town Hall Meetings and months of spirited discussion, on April 16, 2014 at a Special Meeting of the Membership, the League's membership overwhelmingly voted in favor of the proposed deal.

Torresdale Frankford deposited the golf course, clubhouse, and all real assets and liabilities of the club into the new LLC. The Union League agreed to invest $14 million in the golf course and the facilities leveraged against the 150 acre asset. Effective July 1, 2014, The Union League of Philadelphia announced the acquisition of a new LLC in which the Union League is the sole member, owner and operator of Torresdale Frankford Country Club now known as The Union League Golf Club at Torresdale. The Union League Golf Club at Torresdale is located in the northeast corner of Philadelphia, only 12 miles from Center City and about 20 minutes door to door from the League.

After extensive renovation, The Union League Golf Club at Torresdale opened for the 2015 golf season. All Union League members have full privileges.
