DALLAS, Sept. 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Invited, the world’s largest owner and operator of private clubs, is proud to announce that it has added The Haven Country Club in Boylston, Massachusetts, to its dynamic portfolio of golf and country clubs. Regarded as one of New England’s most beautiful and challenging layouts, The Haven Country Club is a renowned golf and country club that has played host to some of the region’s most prestigious events, including the annual New England PGA Pro-Pro Championship.
“The Haven is rich in history and tradition, a culture Invited intends to build upon,” said Maurice Darbyshire, Invited’s Senior Vice President.
Members of The Haven Country Club are invited to attend an open house at the club on Wednesday, September 28, or Thursday, September 29, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Invited regional team members will be on hand to ensure a smooth transition to new ownership.
“The Haven is one of New England’s most beautiful and unique golf courses. We’re thrilled to welcome it and its members into the Invited family,” said David Pillsbury, Invited’s Chief Executive Officer. “The club has a long, proud history.

The golf course, designed by William Mitchell, features a compelling layout framed by the lush forests and rolling hills of farmland that dominate the landscape.
