Chenequa Country Club was founded on October 17, 1911. In the summer of 1912, a nine hole golf course was completed. Renowned golf course architecht, Thomas Bendelow who also designed Medinah #3, is credited with laying out the original tract. The original by-laws of the club limited membership to 75.
Over the years there have been many changes at Chenequa; additions to the course, physical improvements to the grounds and clubhouse and a gradual increase in the number of members who call Chenequa "My Club." Today, our course covers 174 treed and rolling acres. We enjoy playing off manicured bent grass fairways and greens outlined by bluegrass surrounds and Cedar Lake sand traps. We enjoy playing tennis on four asphalt and three clay courts which some call the "best clay courts in Wisconsin." We relish fine food and drink in our recently renovated and expanded clubhouse. In the late afternoons we sit with friends on the wide deck overlooking our private beach front and watch the afternoon shadows glide across our 1000 feet of frontage out onto Beaver Lake.
A lot of strokes have been taken; golf, tennis, swimming; since those early days at Chenequa. We have a great history in which we can gaze, and today, well let's say that being part of Chenequa as we celebrate the centennial anniversary, there is a lot to enjoy!
