It’s an experience you won’t soon forget. When you turn in the drive and catch the first glimpse of the classically beautiful clubhouse, you’ve found one of Fort Wayne’s most compelling and welcoming places.
But this is not the stereotypical country club: stodgy, dull and uninspired don’t work at Fort Wayne Country Club. This club is bustling with activity, both on and off the golf course. As many country clubs are struggling to find ways to remain relevant in today’s distracted and time-constrained world, Fort Wayne Country Club continues to enjoy a vibrant atmosphere.
In fact, members recently overwhelmingly approved a significant amenities enhancement that will bolster its reputation as Fort Wayne’s most active, fun and engaging club.
Among the enhancements, members will soon enjoy:
“The members here really care about this club. We celebrate everything here, from first birthdays to the first day of summer; from New Year’s Eve to new beginnings, but most of all, our members celebrate the connections that happen here between families and friends” explains Troy Sprister, general manager at Fort Wayne Country Club.
“The club has a way of bringing people together. The enhancements will create more opportunities for members to connect and enjoy a better way of life. That’s why we’re all here and that’s why the members want these enhancements.”
Perhaps the most unexpected element of the project is that it will be completed without a capital assessment to its members. “It’s relatively unheard of in today’s club environment to contemplate a project of this magnitude without any type of hit to the members’ wallet.” says Sprister. “It’s a testament to the club’s strong governance and prudent fiscal management – and having an involved membership for the better part of the last century helps, too.”
Construction is set to start the day after Labor Day and will be complete by Memorial Day 2019. With the recent announcement of the amenities project, the club is already seeing an increase in inquiries for membership. Demand is expected to continue to increase steadily as initiation fees are also expected to rise in anticipation of completion.
The good news is that the club is currently accepting candidates for membership and has introduced a ‘pre-construction’ membership offer to facilitate the new wave of interest. Currently, the offer allows candidates to join now at a reduced initiation fee and no monthly dues until next spring – a great way to lock in a membership position before prices go up, while still enjoying plenty of golf this fall.
Even if you’re not a golfer, the opportunity to join Fort Wayne Country Club won’t get any better than right now. If you are interested in learning more, contact Leah Davis, membership director at (260) 432-2581 or visit https://www.fwccmembership.com to request more information.
