Tim Rice has been a member of Sand Creek Country Club for over a decade. This summer he hit the tenth anniversary of his membership. Rice accounts his longevity with the Club, because of the family oriented style and atmosphere that Sand Creek provides.
“When I first became a member, my kids were 5 and 2 at the time,” said Rice. “I picked Sand Creek Country Club for business reasons and for family reasons. We all use the golf course, but we also use the pool and workout facility a lot.”
It wasn’t a very long road for Rice to find his ideal country club. He searched for a club that would actively involve the rest of his family and had members that were similar to himself.
“I felt like a lot of clubs in the area are focused more so on adults, or even adults closer to retirement age,” Rice continued. “We have those types of members here too, but there's a lot of families. Even just around the pool, it’s a hotbed of family activities and we really like that. It's a great way to meet new people and for the kids to meet children their age as well.”
Sand Creek Country Club strives to provide family oriented events every week, as well as seasonal events throughout the year to engage and entertain members and their families.
“Sand Creek offers so many events for families! We love Wednesday night when they have the family dinners. In the summer we really enjoy the cardboard boat regatta. When the summer is winding down, we look forward to the Labor Day party. Early fall is all about the Halloween party for the kids. At the end of the year in December, there's the Christmas tree lighting. They truly make great events to keep everyone involved “
Rice encourages anyone interested in a membership to come out and take a look around to see if the Club is a fit for your family.
“They really have the best facilities in all of Northwest Indiana for what we’re interested in. There’s really something for everyone out here, and it’s up to you what you want to get involved with. It's a great way to decompress away from work, and we’ve had the opportunity to meet a lot of people and find new friends along the way! ”
