Improvements at the Club

We are blessed to have so many people who care about our club.  In March, we highlighted some of the more involved maintenance projects around the club.  In this edition, we share the results of the membership survey that was conducted to gather your feedback, and to understand better what is important to you as we move our club forward. 


Survey Results

A huge THANK YOU to all members who took the time to provide their feedback and insights on the survey.  The stated purpose of the survey was to identify the relative importance of several improvement projects that can be planned for, funded, and executed prior to our 100th birthday in October of 2028.  Here are the results.


The board of directors will support relevant committees who will leverage this data and other factors (time of year, weather, funding, etc.) to determine which projects to execute when.  The open feedback regarding cosmetic/structural improvements and fundraising will also be considered.  As the scope of each of these improvement projects is considered we will also be looking for volunteers to help with various aspects of the projects.


Our Facilities

This section illustrates the survey results related to general questions about our facilities.  There were not any surprises here and the data speaks for itself.



Golf Course Improvement Rankings

The chart below illustrates the relative importance of each of the survey items.  Notice that with golf cart paths, we looked at both asphalt and gravel cart paths as one combined item, which makes it the top priority on the golf course.



Inside Clubhouse Improvement Rankings

If there was any section with an overwhelming consensus on what should be the focus, this is the section.  While the main dining room is clearly the top priority, deciding what to do, how, by whom and with what budget is an involved process.  Look for this to be a project that we run differently than others.  More work effort will be required here because of the visibility of this room.  Getting it right is paramount!  So expect there to be more to come on this.  We will most certainly be starting on other projects before this one.




Outside Clubhouse Improvement Rankings

There was certainly a consensus that the exterior of the building, especially around the pool area and our entrance/foyer, needs some TLC.  As is referenced in the note under the chart - improvements on the SW side of the building will also support the desire to make improvements around the pool area.



Funding our Progress

As you see below, we had very positive feedback to support the funding of these efforts.  This is a work in progress, as we need to decide when, how, and for what efforts we are going to do fundraising and what amounts the club will be able to contribute.  Before we consider funding needs - we need to consider the project scope and both material and people resources required to execute them.




Pro’s Corner

Greetings All,


April is the official beginning of the golf tournament season!  It is also when we start our Thursday Night Scrambles.  Look for emails regarding tournament entries as well as a weekly email on Thursdays to sign up for the scramble.  Reference the Golf Schedule and mark your calendars for your favorite events! 


Also, just a reminder that the club receives all the proceeds from the Pro Shop merchandise so when you patronize the ILCC Pro Shop, you are benefitting the club!  I have merchandise from most of the main vendors including Titleist, Taylor Made, Callaway, Ping, Cleveland, Srixon, Bridgestone, Under Armour, Ogio and more.  I price all of the Pro Shop merchandise below the suggested retail values so come check out what we have to offer!


Lastly, please take the time to get to know my Pro Shop team for 2024…

Kaitlyn Brunnemer - Grad student at Uindy, also works part time in the bar 

Val Kendrick - Working towards becoming a firefighter, works part time for me 

Jacob Brunnemer - Senior at Fishers High School, attending IUI in the fall

Shaun Williams - Junior at Lawrence North, swims for LN school team

Will Fasbender - Sophomore at Lawrence North, plays on LN golf team

Scott Horsfield - Retired, previously owned Sunrise Cafe in Fishers

Evan Nelms, who worked for me last year, has decided to live full time in Florida.  He will be missed!
