About the Bainbridge Country Club
Founded in 1921
The Bainbridge Country Club has been an important part of the history of Bainbridge. Its members have provided civic and business leaders throughout the community for one hundred years.
Bainbridge Country Club was founded in 1921 when Lloyd Rich Sr. had the courage to loan money to a group of citizens for this purpose. It was originally a nine-hole course with what is now the back nine holes. A clubhouse was built with a veranda overlooking the course so that members could watch friends finishing the 18th hole. The clubhouse burned in 1957 and the existing structure was rebuilt for its membership. In 1991, the clubhouse was completely refurbished. The greens began as sand greens, but in 1948 the greens were converted to grass. Families came out at night and plugged the new grass by car light which is a true testament to the spirit of community here at The Bainbridge Country Club. In 1964, the land was leased from the Gil Pirrung family to complete the course with 18 holes.
Today, club facilities provide a wide variety of services. We have areas that serve every purpose from formal dinner parties to social receptions or club meetings. Additionally, features of the club include: a cocktail lounge known to most as The Oak Room, a 19th hole grill that is home to Crave at The Club, a completely renovated Olympic size swimming pool, the area’s only clay tennis courts, and an 18-hole golf course with a driving range and putting green.
The Club is a place of fellowship where members can meet friends and enjoy personal and business entertainment in a cordial and friendly environment. A place where there is something for everyone!
