While many members call Lake Geneva home for just the summer season, the club attracts its members throughout the year with special Holiday events and member functions. The Clubhouse facilities are available to members and their guests for weddings, special events, and business meetings.
The Clubhouse features a dining room with fantastic views; along with a large ballroom, wicker bar, and deck overlooking what the Potawatomi Indians called the Seven Sacred Pools.
Since its inception, the mission of the club has been the same; to provide wholesome and healthful outdoor activities for its members, particularly the game of golf”, and to promote the moral, social, and physical welfare among its members, their families, and guests. The course tour photo gallery” gives the observer a hint of the beauty of the grounds and the course. A new tennis facility with three Har Tru courts was completed in 2010.
