Members of the community have been enjoying swimming, playing golf, and having social gatherings at the Douglas and Golf Country Club for a century. New and longtime members of the Douglas Golf and Country Club celebrated their 100th year anniversary this past weekend with several events. The Douglas Golf and Country Club has been open in Douglas since 1916.
The club is located on 175 acres of pines along the Seventeen Mile River and includes an 18-hole championship golf course, a clubhouse, restaurant, lounge, pool, and tennis courts.
The club is currently the only full-service, private club in the area that offers activities for all ages.
The weekend started off with a Family Night Supper on Thursday, July 21, 2016, with a dinner prepared by Rancheros and featured live entertainment from DJ Franchize.
One Friday, the club held a 9 Hole-Scramble golf tournament and served a low country boil during their Friday Night Dining.
On Saturday, the club hosted a Three 6’s 2-man tournament and a fun afternoon at the pool with several family activities. Later that night, a luau pig roast with all the fixings was served to those who came out to celebrate the anniversary. The members of the club were also entertained by live music from The Revenants.
