The $1.2 million project, which General Manager Elliott Burks called “a big leap” for the Lima, Ohio property, included new flooring and restrooms in the pool house, a tumble-bucket water area for children, six swimming lanes for the club’s Shawnee Tide swim team, a heated pool, a small slide for the kids and two 20-foot slides for kids and adults.
Shawnee Country Club in Lima, Ohio opened its newly renovated pool for the start of its new season on Memorial Day weekend, the Lima News reported, and General Manager Elliot Burke said the addition represents “a big leap” for the club and its members.
The pool, which was built in 1972, had experienced various upgrades through the years, the News reported, with one of the most recent changes coming in 2004, when the pool house was renovated and a tennis shop and new snack shop were added.
The latest $1.2 million project, the News reported, included new flooring and restrooms in the pool house, a tumble-bucket water area for children, six swimming lanes for the club’s Shawnee Tide swim team, a heated pool, a small slide for the kids and two 20-foot slides for kids and adults.
The renovated pool has depths from zero entry to 12 feet 6 inches, the News reported. “Zero entry makes it easier for the adults, handicapped and for small children to easily get around in the pool,” Burke noted.
After its opening on May 25, the pool will be open from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week until Labor Day, the News reported. During pool hours, lifeguards will be present and the facility will be supervised by a pool manager.
In addition to the recent pool renovation, Shawnee CC has also put in a new pond and rebuilt three of its greens on its golf course, on holes 10, 11 and 14, the News reported. The facility has also converted all of the fairways to bentgrass.
“This is huge in the golfing industry,” said Burke. “If you are a golfer, this means a lot.”
The club has approximately 350 members, according to Burke, who now use its facilities for fitness, dining, golf outings, clubhouse amenities, tennis courts and lessons, massage therapy and more.
“Through this recent renovation we are hoping to get the word out to prospective members,” Burke told the News. “We want people to know that we provide a facility that takes care of the wants and needs for people who like the private club experience. We have the desire to serve people, and that is what we are all about.”
