  • Celebrating 100 Years

    Introduction:
    As the leaves unfurl and the fairways return to their lush green splendor each spring, Reedsburg Country Club in Reedsburg, Wisconsin, welcomes its members and guests with the promise of another season of memorable golf. This year, however, is not just any season; it marks the beginning of our centennial celebration. Officially opened in 1924, our beloved golf course has reached an incredible milestone—100 years of golfing tradition, community gatherings, and unforgettable events.
     
    A Rich History:
    From its inception in 1924, Reedsburg Country Club has been more than just a place to play golf; it has been a community cornerstone.
     
    The original 9-hole course was a vision brought to life by local enthusiasts who saw the potential for a premier golfing experience in Reedsburg. The evolution of our club is marked by the many significant milestones that followed.
     
    In 1977, renowned course designers Killian and Nugent added nine new holes, skillfully blending strategic play with aesthetic beauty. This expansion enhanced our course’s challenge and charm, attracting golfers of all skill levels.
     
    Over the decades, the course has continued to evolve, mirroring the growth and changes of its surrounding community.
     
    Clubhouse History:
    The original clubhouse at Reedsburg Country Club, established in 1924, was a hub of community and golfing activities. As the club grew, expansions were necessary to accommodate the increasing number of events and visitors.

    In the 1970s, recognizing the need for modernization and more space, significant renovations and expansions were undertaken. This development was designed to enhance the clubhouse's functionality and aesthetics, making it capable of hosting larger events and providing better amenities for members and guests.

    The most recent and substantial update came after a serious incident where a pesticide damaged the course's trees. This unfortunate event led to a settlement, and with the funds, a new clubhouse and banquet facility were constructed, opening in 2016. The new 10,000-square-foot facility, designed by Architectural Design Consultants, Inc. (ADCI) and built by Friede & Associates, features modern amenities, extensive glass for scenic views, and a layout that includes a large banquet area, a restaurant, and a covered patio with a fire pit​ (Friede & Associates)​​ (Friede & Associates).

    The expansion to 18 holes and the construction of new clubhouses have marked significant milestones in our club’s history. Each renovation and addition has been carefully planned to enhance the member experience while preserving the natural beauty and integrity of the original landscape. These developments not only expanded our physical footprint but also enriched the services and amenities available to our members and guests.

    Pioneers of the Green:
    The success and longevity of Reedsburg Country Club are credited to the visionary leaders and dedicated individuals who steered the club through the ups and downs. From the founding members who first dreamed of a golf course in Reedsburg to today's committed staff and volunteers, each person has left a unique imprint on the club’s legacy. Their passion and hard work have ensured that our club remains a place where traditions are honored and new memories are made.
     
    Transitions To Semi-Private:
    In 1994, the Reedsburg Country Club transitioned to a semi-private golf course. This change allowed the club to offer memberships and benefits typical of private clubs while opening its facilities to the public, enhancing its accessibility and community integration.
     
    This strategic move helped broaden the club's appeal and maintain a high standard of service and exclusivity.
     
    Centennial Celebrations:
    As we swing into our 100th year, we have planned a series of special events and activities to commemorate this centennial milestone. These include historical exhibits showcasing artifacts and photographs from our club's rich past, special golf tournaments, celebrations, and events that will unite the generations of members and public guests who have made our club what it is today.
     
    Moreover, this anniversary year will be an opportunity to launch new initiatives to enhance our club’s offerings and ensure its future for the next century. These include sustainability efforts to preserve our beautiful course and community outreach programs to deepen our connection with Reedsburg and its residents.

    At Reedsburg Country Club, we're celebrating 100 years of golf, community, tradition, and the timeless spirit of the game.

  • Heritage and Friendship at Reedsburg Country Club

    Introduction: 
    Over the last six weeks, our PGA Pros, Bob and Jason, went beyond just promoting RCC; they shared our story. At the Chicago Golf Show and the Milwaukee Golf Show, they discussed the history of golf at our club, spanning 100 years. They also discussed the many strong friendships that have formed over the years.

    The conversation touched on the various experiences our club offers. These include the challenging golf course, the welcoming bar & grill, and the stunning wedding and event spaces. This year, we mark our Centennial year, and our story reminds us of our past and the future ahead.

    expo

    Golf Show Connections:
    Reedsburg Country Club attended the Chicago Golf Show on February 23rd-25th, followed by the Milwaukee Golf Show on March 1st-3rd. 

    This helped us stretch our reach and connect with more people. As a result, we were able to share our club with an audience that has a large vacation presence in our area. Sharing with long-term visitors in our area is important and a key market for our business. While also sharing with distant locals who might not know what sets our club apart from other local courses. Being sure that we don't neglect those who are local is a priority. This is where potential year-round members and commitments will start. 

    Our consistent involvement shows our dedication to marketing our club and how valuable we see our club as to people's lives. We want to grow our network and help others create better futures for themselves and their communities. We know that being a part of RCC is a great way to do all of that. 

    The Impact of Participation:
    Attending expos in Milwaukee and Chicago helps RCC showcase our products. It also allows us to connect with others in the industry in ways we otherwise wouldn't be able to.
    Here are a few:
    • They help us stay current with trends.
    • They help us find new ways to improve our services.
    • They help us bring awareness to the importance of golf outside of our community.
    • They help us foster new potential community engagement.
    • They help us reinforce RCC’s position as a premier destination for golfers and event planners.
    • They help us to make NEW, genuine in-person connections.
    Looking Forward:
    As Reedsburg Country Club steps into its centennial year, our participation in these golf expos is just the beginning. We will continue to focus on growing our members, improving services, providing great experiences, and being inclusive and welcoming to all.
     
    Conclusion: 
    Come with us as we create new memories and honor a legacy built for a century. We invite you to be a part of our journey. Together, we will celebrate the past and create new experiences. Join us in celebrating our hundred-year legacy.

    Here’s to another hundred years of excellence, friendships, and the most memorable golfing experiences.

    At Reedsburg Country Club, nestled in the heart of Reedsburg, WI, we believe in the magic of love and the beauty of seamless celebrations.
    On February 4, 2024, we showed our commitment to creating the finest memories by attending the 2024 Once Upon A Time Bridal Expo at Chula Vista Resort. This event was led by Brides n Belles, a local bridal store known for its excellent customer service and wide range of wedding dresses and tuxedos.
     
    Our Trusted Team Leads The Way:
    This was the first expo with Taren Lehman as our Director of Sales and Marketing. With her eye for detail and organization skills, Taren is always able to bring any event to life. She created a stunning booth that displayed our venue space beautifully.
     
    Our lead bartender, Kara Imhoff, who also attended, has worked in weddings and banquets at RCC for seven years. With her experience, she showcased our venue's expertise and commitment.
     
    The expo brought together local vendors for a loving, creative, collaborative event. We were happy to be with them, showing off Reedsburg Country Club as a top wedding venue and banquet area. We join events like this to connect, learn, and share in the happy journey of planning weddings with couples.

RCC offers beautiful outdoor settings for ceremonies and spacious banquet halls, making it the perfect backdrop for any celebration.
     
    Measuring Success:
    Our presence at the expo was not just about presentation but about building connections and making dreams come true. We are thrilled to announce that, thanks to this visibility, we have secured another wedding for 2024 and a bridal shower for 2025. These bookings showcase the trust and confidence couples place in us. We know this is because Taren and Kara had genuine conversations and formed real connections with the couples they talked to.

  • Community Commitment: Food Drive at RCC

    Introduction: 
    At Reedsburg Country Club, our commitment to our community goes beyond our beautiful golf course and event spaces. In November and December 2023, we had two events, "Trunk or Treat" and "Jingle Mingle," to help our local food pantry.
     
    We collected many non-perishable items from our guests and members, filling one car for the local Food Pantry. In this blog post, we want to share this heartwarming story and express our gratitude to everyone who made it happen.
     
    Event 1: Trunk or Treat Event:
    Our "Trunk or Treat" event, held during Halloween, was a spooky success. Families from the Reedsburg community joined us for an afternoon of fun and giving.
     
    We encouraged participants to bring non-perishable food items to fill our collection bins. Their hearts matched the creativity in the trunk decorations and costumes with their generosity. Goblins and ghouls came together to ensure that less fortunate families in our community would have enough to eat.
     
    Event 2: Jingle Mingle - A Holiday Gathering:
    We hosted a festive and heartwarming "Jingle n Mingle" event as the holiday season approached. This event brought people together to have fun at RCC and support our donation collection efforts.
     
    We asked our guests and members to bring non-perishable food items as a goodwill gesture. As laughter and conversations flowed, so did the donations into our collection bins.
     
    The Incredible Support of Our Community:
    We continued our efforts to raise more donations by asking our guests and members to continue to fill our bins throughout the rest of 2023. We were in awe of the support from our members, guests, and the local Reedsburg community during both events. Their kind hearts filled our bins and made our trip to the local Food Pantry complete.
     
    Reedsburg Food Pantry:
    If you need help or want to donate, contact Reedsburg Food Pantry for more information.
     
    Looking Ahead to Our Centennial Year:
    We commit to being essential to the Reedsburg community for our 100th anniversary in 2024. Acts of kindness like the "Trunk or Treat" and "Jingle Mingle" events are at the core of what Reedsburg Country Club stands for. We are excited to continue these events in our 100th year and beyond. We aim to ensure our community remains strong and lively for another 100 years.
     
    Conclusion:
    At Reedsburg Country Club, being a part of the community means giving back. But our members, guests, and the Reedsburg community deserve credit for attributing this success to their compassion and kindness.
     
    We are grateful to everyone who helped make these projects successful. We are excited for more community involvement and support in the future.
     
    Together, we can all make a difference right here in our community!

  • RCC's Trunk O' Treat Success

    Introduction:
    At Reedsburg Country Club, we are all about celebrating the community and having a good time. On October 29th, 2023, we had a frightening event. Families in our community, members, and Halloween enthusiasts came together for a fun-filled day with candy and creativity.
     
    Our Trunk O' Treat event was nothing short of a hauntingly good time! Let's dive into the chilling details of how we transformed our driving range into a Halloween wonderland.
     
    Golf Carts with a Spooky Twist:
    With the generous support of local businesses and RCC members, we decked out 15 golf carts in Halloween splendor. Each cart became a unique trunk filled with candy and treats for all the little ghouls and goblins.
     
    We placed these spooky carts on our golf range where kids could walk from one to the next for some fun and safe trick-or-treating.
     
    With this came some friendly competition to see who could create the most spooktacular cart, and our sponsors went all out! You can click here for a complete Trunk O Treat golf cart sponsor list.
     
    Warmth in a Cup:
    We kept our guests warm as the autumn chill settled in, and we experienced our first COLD weekend. We had hot cocoa and apple cider available for purchase, and wood fire pits stoked high. Sipping on these warm delights, guests could stay extra toasty while enjoying the festivities and fire pits!
     
    Family-Friendly Halloween and Golf-Themed Yard Games:
    Our Trunk O' Treat was not only about getting candy but also about having fun with loved ones. We organized different Halloween-themed outdoor games. Including Pumpkin Putt-Putt, Gourd Ring Toss, Toss the Pumpkins, Tiny Pumpkin Tic Tac Toe, and a fall-themed selfie station. These games excited the event, and everyone had a howling good time!
     
    Costume Contest Fun:
    Our costume contest was a highlight of the day. We had three categories: one for families, one for older kids, and one for little kids. The competition was fierce, and the creativity was off the charts!
     
    The winners received fantastic prizes. These prizes included:
    • A $100 gift card and golf rounds for the winners of the family category.
    • A Junior PGA golf scholarship for the older kids category for the 2024 season.
    • A First Tee Golf Programs scholarship for the little kid's category for the 2024 season.
     
    The prizes allow new people to enjoy Reedsburg Country Club and give them a chance to enjoy the community at the club. These prizes also help introduce the sport to community members who haven't played.
     
    Giving Back to the Community:
    We believe in the spirit of giving, especially during the Holiday season. So, along with the fun, we aimed to impact our community positively in more ways than one.
     
    We encouraged guests to bring non-perishable food donations for our local Reedsburg Food Pantry. Thanks to the support of our attendees, we collected a significant amount of donations just from this event. Because of this, we have been able to help many families who are in need during this festive season.
     
    A Record-Breaking Turnout:
    We were thrilled to welcome over 250 kids and families to this event. Their enthusiastic participation and smiles made our Trunk O' Treat a massive success. We're genuinely grateful for the overwhelming support we received.
     
    Looking Ahead to 2024:
    We're thrilled to grow next year's Trunk O Treat event with more fun, more attendance, more carts, and more giving back! Stay tuned for updates, and mark your calendars because we promise it will be a celebration you won't want to miss!
     
    The 2023 Trunk O' Treat event at Reedsburg Country Club was a thriving community gathering. This event was filled with creativity and community outreach, providing a fun experience for everyone involved. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all our sponsors, members, and guests who made this event successful. Keep an eye out for updates on our 2024 centennial celebration, and get ready for another year of spooky fun at RCC!

    Jingle Mingle 1
     
    A Festive Gathering For All Ages:
    Our Jingle Mingle event was open to the public, inviting families to join us for a memorable afternoon. Children of all ages came to meet Santa Claus, take photos, and share their Christmas wishes. Meeting Santa and visiting with him casually and relaxingly created a joyful and festive atmosphere.
     
    Sweet Treats and Cozy Moments:
    To add a touch of sweetness to the afternoon, we served up a delectable spread of holiday cookies that delighted young and old alike. Thank you to Viking Village Bakery for the delicious cookies. Families gathered around our patio's cozy fires to make s'mores, share stories, and create lasting memories by the firelight.
     
    Crafting Holiday Magic:
    One of the afternoon's highlights was the delightful holiday craft activity we had prepared. Children decorated paper mittens with glitter and cotton balls to make unique ornaments for Santa's tree. Seeing children's faces light up as they crafted their holiday magic was heartwarming.
     
    Warming Up with Delicious Drinks:
    We had hot cocoa and other warm drinks for sale to keep everyone warm and cozy this winter afternoon. We aimed to create a comfortable and inviting space where families could relax and enjoy quality time together.
     
    Santa's Special Gift:
    Santa Claus had a heartwarming gift for each child attending the event. He handed out small gifts that included silver bells from his sleigh, a symbol of the magic and joy of the holiday season. The sound of these bells added an extra touch of enchantment to the day.
     
    Spreading Holiday Joy Beyond Our Doors:
    At Reedsburg Country Club, we believe in giving back to our community, especially during the holiday season. At our Jingle Mingle event, we asked families to donate non-perishable food to the local Reedsburg Food Pantry. The support we received was uplifting and showed us how powerful it is when people come together to make a change.
     
    A Magical Afternoon to Remember:
    Our first Jingle Mingle event was very successful, with over 130 children and families attending to celebrate the holidays. Witnessing the joy and laughter that filled our club during this particular afternoon was a heartwarming experience.
     
    In 2024, we will celebrate our 100th anniversary. During this milestone year, we aim to make a more significant impact and establish enduring traditions within our community.
     
    We are grateful to everyone who contributed to the success of this event. We are also thrilled about our plans to expand our Jingle Mingle celebration. At Reedsburg Country Club, we want everyone to feel welcome and have a great time during the holidays. We hope to keep creating new memories and traditions and spread the joy of giving. Thank you for joining us on our journey. We look forward to the future as we serve our members, professionals, and community guests.

  • Our Golf Pro, Bob Feller

    Introduction:
    At Reedsburg Country Club, We're not just about hitting the greens; we're also dedicated to nurturing the future of the sport. RCC's staff and volunteers demonstrate this through their dedication and hard work.
     
    Reedsburg Country Club's PGA Golf Pro, Bob Feller, is a beaming example. The First Tee of South Central Wisconsin has awarded Bob Feller the "Coach of the Year" title for 2023. This recognition results from his dedication and hard work in growing the game and impacting young lives.
     
    Myles 1
     
    The First Tee Journey: A Milestone Achievement:
    Reedsburg Country Club joined forces eight years ago with The First Tee chapter. Their goal was to revamp their youth golf program, which had existed for 20 years.
     
    Don, Barbara Carrig, and Doris Feller generously supported this collaboration. We teamed up with The First Tee of South Central Wisconsin to start a program for young people. It teaches them the basics of golf and helps them learn important values like discipline, respect, and sportsmanship. At the same time, we are creating a feeling of inclusivity and community within our youth.
     
    Over the years, the program has doubled, serving approximately 150 kids today. This initiative has made a massive difference in Reedsburg and the surrounding area, thanks to the hard work of Bob Feller.
     
    How Bob Feller Steers the Ship:
    Bob's coaching focuses on teaching golf and life skills, making it well-rounded, fun, and comprehensive. Bob believes that golf is more than just a game; it is a pathway to greatness.
     
    Bob also thinks golf is a valuable tool for young people to learn essential life lessons. These lessons can benefit them in various aspects of their lives. Bob's impact goes beyond golf skills; it shapes the students' character and motivates them to become improved individuals.
     
    The Role of RCC Members & Volunteers. The Backbone of Success:
    While Bob's leadership has been instrumental in the program's achievements, there are many to thank. Our efforts would only be complete if we noticed the considerable role played by the members of Reedsburg Country Club.
     
    Our members have always supported this program in various ways. They volunteer as mentors, provide financial help, and are always energetic cheerleaders for the kids.
     
    The RCC members and the Carrig Foundation have been instrumental in the program's success. Don and Barbara Carrig have played a crucial role in the program's success. Without them and their generous donations, the program wouldn't be where it is today.
     
    The RCC members have also played a crucial role in the program's success. They have worked alongside Pro Jason Diekfuss and former students who now assist with teaching. Together, they have created a nurturing environment for young golfers to flourish.
     
    The journey from 8 years ago to now has been a team effort, with everyone contributing, and our hearts are full of thanks.
     
    Congratulations to Bob Feller for his deserved recognition, and we thank all our members for supporting this initiative. Join us in celebrating Bob's achievement and supporting our efforts to improve golf in the Reedsburg community.
     
    A Look Forward:
    We invite you to be part of our growth and success, whether you're a seasoned golfer or new to the game. Your involvement can make all the difference.
     
    As our 100th anniversary 2024 approaches, this recognition prepares us for a prosperous future. We have achieved a lot and helped the community, and we look forward to doing more amazing things in 2024.

    Introduction:
    Summer is always exciting at the Reedsburg Country Club (RCC), but this year was extra special. With the generous contributions from our members and community, we raised an impressive $5,000 for our First Tee Program. And as if that wasn't exciting enough, Don and Barbara Carrig have matched those donations. Bringing our total for this fundraiser to an incredible $10,000. This kind of support means so much to us and to the 140 participants in the Reedsburg area who will benefit from it.

  • Special Olympics Night Golf Fundraiser

    Introduction: 
    At Reedsburg Country Club, we believe in giving back to our community. Our recent Night Golf Fundraiser for the Sauk County Special Olympics was a shining example of our commitment. On September 2nd, 2023, we hosted an unforgettable event that lit up the golf course and warmed our hearts.

    We raised an impressive $6,610 for the Sauk County Special Olympics. Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, dedicated golfers, donors, and exceptional staff.

    Understanding the Sauk County Special Olympics: 
    To understand the Night Golf Fundraiser's success, we must first know the purpose of the Sauk County Special Olympics. Special Olympics provides year-round sports training and competitions.

    These competitions are Olympic-style sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. These activities help them stay fit, be brave, have fun, and share their talents and abilities. It also fosters cherished friendships and inclusivity.

    You can learn more about this incredible organization by visiting Special Olympics Wisconsin.

    Thank You to Our Sponsors, Golfers, Donors, and Staff: 
    Our event wouldn't have been possible without the incredible support of our sponsors. We extend our heartfelt thanks to each of them for their contributions to the success of this event. Their commitment to our cause is commendable, and we look forward to their continued partnership.

    Check out the complete list of The Night Golf Fundraiser for Sauk County Special Olympics Sponsors.

    We are also immensely grateful to the golfers who participated in the Night Golf Fundraiser. Your enthusiasm and willingness immensely helped us raise funds for this event. Your commitment made this event enjoyable, meaningful, and memorable.

    We also want to express our gratitude to all those who donated to our silent auction and raffles. Your help made our event more exciting, allowing people to win prizes and support an even better cause.

    Events like these require a dedicated team, and we are fortunate to have a staff that goes above and beyond. Our sincere thanks go out to every member of our crew who worked tirelessly. They ensured the Night Golf Fundraiser went perfectly and that the Special Olympic Athletes felt welcomed and included.

    A Special Thanks to Brady Ellett: 
    Behind every successful event, there's often an unsung hero. In our case, that hero is RCC Member Brady Ellett.

    Brady has been the driving force behind the Night Golf Fundraiser for two consecutive years. He was strongly dedicated and put in many hours of effort.

    While gathering sponsors, donations, and golfers to participate, he also generously contributed to the cost of lights and equipment. These factors were crucial in making the event successful while leaving a lasting impression on everyone involved.

    Brady's dedication to this cause runs deep. His family and other RCC members had organized Special Olympics Night Golf events for years until COVID-19. During that time, their successful events benefited the local high school Special Olympics teams.

    The Ellett family and other RCC Members saw a need within this program. They worked hard to make that happen for the young athletes. Years later, Brady now solely organizes and continues this event for Sauk County Special Olympics.

    Brady's strong commitment to the Night Golf Fundraiser shows through his passion and determination for the cause.

    Brady's own brother's journey as a Special Olympics athlete is what inspired Brady to continue supporting the organization. Brady's dedication goes beyond his role as an organizer. You can see it is a sincere dedication to helping Special Olympics athletes and the community.

    Brady and his family and other RCC Members have shown us how to create a better future. Through their inclusivity and sincere support of this organization, this future is for EVERYONE!

    As We Move Forward: 
    The Night Golf Fundraiser for Sauk County Special Olympics at Reedsburg Country Club was a "glowing" success. We are proud of what we achieved together as a community and look forward to next year's event.

    As 2023 comes to a close and we welcome the new year, looking back on events like this is inspiring. We celebrate 100 years of success and community in 2024.

    Measuring success in life does not depend on the breaths you take. Instead, it is moments that take your breath away that count. At Reedsburg Country Club, one of our goals for 2024 is to continue to create moments that do just this!
