The semi-private Cambridge, Ill. facility has redesigned and installed a new roof and put new siding on its farmhouse-turned-clubhouse, and will now display the improvements as part of a membership drive for which a number of new-member specials are being offered.
After redesigning and installing a new roof and putting new siding on its farmhouse-turned-clubhouse, the Valley View Club in Cambridge, Ill. is ready to show off the facility, the Dispatch-Argus of Moline/Rock Island, Ill. reported.
The semi-private club with roughly 300 members that also allows public golf play will hold an open house on Saturday, April 7, from 2 to 4 p.m. that is part of the club’s season kickoff for new members and also part of a membership drive for which a number of new-member specials are being offered, the Dispatch-Argus reported.
“We would like to invite anyone to come out,” Lisa VanWatermeulen, a Valley View Board member, told the Dispatch-Argus.“This is our first official event of the season as a club.”
The club would like to reach at least 325 members, but could handle more, VanWatermeulen said.
The $50,000 in improvements that will be featured during the open house, the Dispatch-Argus reported, were made possible by endowments from two trusts, plus a number of matching donations. In addition to the new roof and siding, other amenities have been upgraded, the club reported.
Much of the Valley View facility has now received work since it originally opened in 1966 as a nine-hole course with a pool, VanWatermeulen told the Dispatch-Argus. That includes adding a new nine holes that opened in 1999 with the help of former PGA Tour pro Dan Halldorson, who lived in Cambridge for a number of years before his death in 2015. The golf course and club also got a new irrigation system and new cart sheds.
“There has been a lot done out here over the years,” said VanWatermeulen, noting that much of the work has been done by volunteers and/or club members.
