Club House HistoryThe Lancaster Country Club charter was officially signed by the founding members on April 6th, 1900. In May 1900, LCC established temporary headquarters on Juliet Avenue in Manheim Township, PA. The founding members contracted with Herman Wohlsen to build the first clubhouse for $2,640. By 1911, the membership had outgrown its original home, and in 1913, the Board of Governors purchased 60 acres of the Wirth Farm off of the current New Holland Pike for $9,163 as the permanent location for Lancaster Country Club. They approved a clubhouse again built by Herman Wohlsen and hired a golf professional to mark out a nine-hole course for $100. In 1919, the club contracted William Flynn to design the new nine golf holes, and revamp some of the existing nine holes. Flynn is now revered as one of the most influential golf architects of his time.
While now well-established as the place for golf and tennis, the club lacked a swimming pool. In 1929, the membership voted to approve building a swimming pool and additional tennis courts.
The clubhouse was remodeled in 1954. A new entrance, expanded dining room providing a beautiful view of the 18th hole, air conditioning, new men’s locker room and 19th hole were all part of the renovations that totaled $200,000.
In 1965, a new entertainment committee was formed to increase social opportunities at LCC. A new driving range was built in 1963 and golf carts were purchased for the first time. An expanded pool and upgrades to racquets facilities included the addition of platform tennis courts.
In the 1990's, the 9-hole Highlands Course, designed by Brian Silva, was an addition made to expand the golfing experience at LCC.
An air structure was purchased in 2003 to provide indoor tennis during the winter months. Racquets facilities were later expanded from six to nine courts with the addition of three Har-Tru synthetic clay courts. In 2007, the Flynn Dining room was added for member dining and the "Porch Lounge" was expanded to create the current Ballroom.
A pivotal point in Lancaster Country Club's rich history, the LCC: A Defining Moment project broke ground in 2020. The expansion project brings forth the next generation of first class amenities for families including a new 26,000-sq. ft Activities Pavilion which hosts a new casual dining facility, multi-sport simulators, fitness center, on-site childcare facility, and pool complex.
