Club next door to Tom Brady-Gisele Bundchen household finally admits couple after two years

BROOKLINE, Mass. -- An exclusive club in the town where Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen live has finally admitted the celebrity couple.

The Boston Globe reports that The Country Club in Brookline, a leafy and affluent Boston suburb, quietly approved membership for the New England Patriots' star quarterback and his supermodel wife.

Brady and Bundchen own a multimillion-dollar mansion next door. But their application languished for two years while other members debated whether they might be a little too high-profile for the privacy-minded club founded in 1882 on Chestnut Hill.

Club amenities include access to two golf courses, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, a curling rink, an Olympic-size pool, skeet shooting, trails for cross-country skiing and a pond for ice skating.

The club has hosted U.S. Opens and the Ryder Cup in the past and is generally considered one of the country's best golf courses.
