|Long Beach Country Club is a private 18-hole golf facility originally built in the early 1920's. The original clubhouse was a unique Spanish Mission design, and was unfortunately destroyed by fire in 1935. |
In the ensuing three months, in an effort to have a new Clubhouse by spring, the then Board of Directors turned down an offer from John Lloyd Wright to design a new building. "They didn't have time to wait for an artist when they had an engineer and builder ready to start." A new two-story Clubhouse was completed in June 1936, and formed the basic core of the previous Clubhouse. In the summer of 1972, the main level dining room and proshop section of the lower level were added to the 1936 building.
Although the previous building appeared sound, the site was not, and the architecture was dated and no longer representative of the growing membership and the Long Beach Country Club lifestyle. All of this led to the planning of our new facility in 1994. Our current Clubhouse was completed in July of 1999.
We are working with OKW Architects, Chicago, Il and Tonn and Blank of Michigan City as we construct a pavilion to replace our tented outside area.
Planned renovations include:
New bathrooms at the pool deck level, a lift to provide ADA access from the Pavilion to pool and pool to Pavilion.
Pavilion will be a permanent structure with a new bar area.
Golf view terrace with views of 1 and 18 fairways.
New satellite kitchens within our current kitchen footprint.
Dedicated service elevator via additional add on to the clubhouse structure.
Looking forward to reopening May 2024.
