Founded in 1915, Skaneateles Country Club (SCC) is a private, family-oriented country club. With a newly renovated golf course and over 2500 feet of waterfront access, the club is a golfers and sailors ideal getaway close to home. In addition, the club offers a sailing camp and day camp for younger members. Beautiful views of Skaneateles Lake surround distinct country club. SCC was started by nine Syracuse residents. At the time, Skaneateles was a sleepy resort town where these nine residents vacationed in the summer. With a common love of sailing they began the club, then known as Skaneateles Yacht & Country Club. The common bond began to change when new families moved to the town, bringing along with them a love for golf. Once these golfers joined the club many improvements were made to the existing nine- hole course. Finally, in 1963, to meet their members’ new interest, SCC expanded their nine-hole course to an eighteen-hole course. The next major renovation SCC went through took place between 1991 and 1992. In October of 1991, two dishwashers managed to hide in the clubhouse after closing. Their goal of burning down the clubhouse was realized after they poured gasoline on the floors and set the building on fire. With the exception of space now used for storage, once the women’s locker room, the clubhouse was destroyed. While construction was underway, temporary kitchens were set up under tents outside to service the loyal golfers and members. Construction was complete by the beginning of July 1992 and the clubhouse reopened on July 4. As time has passed and the town of Skaneateles has gained many new residents, so too has the country club. During the club’s first few years open, most members lived outside of Skaneateles, frequenting the club only while on vacation. Now, the vast majority of members live within Skaneateles or in the small towns located minutes away. Most members are still drawn to the club mainly for the waterfront privileges provided. With Skaneateles Lake almost completely private, and homes surrounding the lake, worth upwards of two million dollars, SCC has a great advantage. In order to provide the most accurate information on the country club, I will separate the discussion into eight sections. I will begin with an overview of membership and organizational structure.
