This is truly an historic project for our club and we would like to capture this in a photo. There will be a ground breaking picture taken on August 11. Happy hour will begin at 5:30 pm with complimentary refreshments. There will be a group photo arranged to celebrate the ground breaking for our updated Clubhouse. We hope that you can attend this event.  Please call to RSVP - 605-226-0989. Truly, this is an exciting time for the future of our Club!

August 2 Update - The clubhouse project is well on it's way. The old sunroom has been removed and the foundation has been poured for the dining/banquet addition. The basement has been completely cleaned out to make room for a new storage area. Exterior work on the siding has also begun.

 
  
  

The original clubhouse was constructed in 1971. Much of that structure exists today. Over time, several additions have been made and renovations undertaken to try to keep the facility current and functional to serve members’ needs. Now, with age and shifting demographics, the clubhouse feels tired, disjointed, and lacks the spaces required to keep our members comfortable and to serve large events. The infrastructure of the clubhouse is also antiquated and needs a full update. The plumbing, electric, HVAC and building exterior are all well beyond their useful lives. Taking a piecemeal approach has kept the club functioning for the last several decades but will actually increase costs in the long run.  The time has come to secure the next 50 years of the clubhouse by completing a full renovation. What better time to do that than during the club’s 50th anniversary?

Through a combination of conservative budgeting and the Forward to the Future Capital Campaign, this project is a reality. But we have not reached our fundraising goals. While we have enough for the "base" project, there are some terrific alternates that take this project from really good to awesome. We still need support and ask that you thoughtfully consider a five-year pledge. This is our opportunity, our time to build for the future and pay it foward to succeeding generations, just like those courageous founding members did 50 plus years ago!

“We can make it happen if we all work together.”
I am sure you have heard that before. It rings true
in spades for our clubhouse renovation project.

When the board first looked at the feasibility of
the clubhouse renovation, we looked at the needs,
the wants, and what we thought we could achieve.
First addressing the needs of our 50 year-old
building and then the wants based on what we
could afford.

When we looked at the fundraising goals of the
project, we looked at both the minimum dollars
that we needed to raise and the number of
members willing to contribute. Although we have
had success in the dollars raised, the amount
raised has come from less than half of our
members. We understand and do not expect that
all members will give to the same level as others.
But no amount is too small. And small amounts
from many members provides substantial
financial support. Not only do small amounts help
in funding the project, but they also acknowledge
your support of the project. Please consider a
pledge to this project.

We can make it happen if we all work together.
