Our Aerie was chartered in 1901 and was originally located in a converted home in downtown Utica, NY at 1103 Park Avenue. After more than 75 years at that location the members and Trustees decided a new location was necessary. The need for a larger facility with better services for the expanding membership required the Trustees to look for a more suitable building to meet the Aerie's needs.
In 1978 the Aerie purchased the former Deerfield Golf and Country Club in the Town of Deerfield at 10513 Cosby Manor Road. While the property was in total disrepair, it did have an enormous potential of providing vastly improved amenities available to the Aerie's membership. It provided ample space for the Social Quarters, dining, banquet and meeting rooms, as well as adequate parking. The 100+ acre property also included a neglected and overgrown 9-hole par 3 golf course.
Over the years the Aerie has completely renovated the facility, the Aerie currently consists of all the appropriate rooms and offices to carryout the business of the Aerie. In addition, our member's Social Quarters include a bar and lounge, 100+ seating capacity dining room and 250+ seating banquet hall, both with full kitchen services. Both facilities can be rented out by our members.
The latest additional to the property was the 2011 construction and dedication of our Aerie #97 Memorial Garden to honor of our deceased Aerie members.
The golf course was redesigned and expanded through the hard work of a very dedicated group of members. It was transformed from a rundown par 3 layout, to what we consider is an unique feature of our Aerie, a quality 9-hole par 35 challenging golf course.
