If you heard rumors that Round Lake now owns a golf course, it's true! The Round Lake Golf Course has been a part of the local community since 1928. Recently, the owners decided to put the property up for sale. A joint meeting of the trustees and directors moved to purchase the course in April, and Round Lake took ownership of the property on August 1, 2015.
Round Lake's mission is to be a "unique place where the gospel of Jesus Christ is experienced." When this opportunity arose, we felt purchasing the course would open up new ways of doing that. Since the purchase, the camp has reopened the course, which helps to fund a portion of the purchase through modest greens fees. We also added footgolf, which was a huge hit among campers and local youth groups! The clubhouse has been partially remodeled with plans to eventually turn it into a small snack shop with a Christian coffeehouse feel. This will open up a new venue for events and retreats.
The course remains open to the public, meaning we have been able to build relationships with the local community in a safe and unique environment. We hope to see fruit from those relationships as we are able to share the love of Christ with our neighbors. It is developing into an outreach ministry to the local community. The course will also be used for camps and retreats, as well as rental groups. As this project develops, the camp hopes to create an enviroment unlinke any other facility in the area. So grab a few friends or your youth group, and come check out the course!
