About Minocqua Country Club
Marketing of the Lakeland area in the Northwoods of Wisconsin as a vacation paradise go back many years. Men of vision journeying to the north in the early 1900's realized the potential of the area... and began the business of the promotion and selling of what we know today as The Minocqua Country Club.
In 1910 Vic Lamson of Fairfield, Iowa purchased the land known as The Minocqua Country Club Complex. Vic divided the property into 100-foot shoreline lots, and in 1911 the first private cottages were built. The golf course was designed in 1915 by C.C. Clark and Hubert Howard. The clubhouse and the course were built and opened in 1917.
O.E. Heisser of the Minocqua Heights Hotel Co. and a professional golf expert, J.J. Sturm of Chicago, were hired as instructor and director of the course in 1922. The Clubhouse was expanded to 100 feet long and 50 feet wide, adding a kitchen, lobby, lounge, and screened veranda and the first Clubhouse cottages were also built. The remodeled facility opened in July of 1923. It became a popular place with two major golf tournaments held each year.
Vic Lamson continued to sell his lots until his death in 1926, although the ownership of the budding resort complex changed hands many times, and there were a variety of plans announced for its use, including a 100 room hotel, that never came to fruition.
This complex operated under a board of directors from Chicago until 1934. Under a reorganization in 1934, three principals incorporated under the name Minocqua Country Club. 500 shares of stock in the Club were offered with a face value of $100. This sale was completed in 1939.
In 1959 a new kitchen and air conditioning were added and the golf course was re-done. In 1965 they started planning the second nine. They completed architectural studies but were not able to arrange the financing.
In July of 1998, the shareholders of the Club approved expansion plans, which included the construction of a completely new golf course. Plans to move ahead were contingent upon the Club raising $2,000,000. This was accomplished on November 1, 1998, by signing up 150 golfing members and obtaining pledges of $50,000 each from ten individuals.
On July 4th, 2001, all 18-holes of this championship golf course officially opened for play.
The Employee Experience
The club is filled with an active membership who enjoy the finest golf and social experiences. The original clubhouse remains today, although numerous renovations and updates have been made, adding to its Northwoods charm. The kitchen features a full fare of dining choices. Other improvements include the bar area, a new deck and dining room overlooking beautiful Lake Minocqua, winterizing the club's offices, as well as a new roof and air conditioning. The clubhouse grounds have also been beautified with the addition of a new parking lot and a complete, automated irrigation system. In addition, there are two tennis courts with a budding tennis program beginning to take shape.
Since its opening, the golf course has had nothing but rave reviews and is maintained in pristine condition. While it proves to be quite a challenge from the championship tees, six sets of tees allow players of all abilities to enjoy playing it on a regular basis. The golf course is consistently in tournament condition and provides a first-rate practice facility that includes a full driving range and a short game practice area.
