Founded in 1921, with the initial members obtaining a charter in June of that year, construction on a new Stanley Thompson-designed golf course, and a clubhouse, were completed the following year. Unfortunately the new clubhouse didn’t last. As was the case with many clubhouses of its era, it was destroyed by fire five years after it opened, and a mortgage was undertaken to allow a new one to be completed. The history of the current Beach Grove—with its emphasis on family activities outside of simply golf—dates back to 1929 when the club added yachting, tennis and bathing facilities to the club.
Over more than 80 years, Beach Grove has had a focus on family. In 1937 it was suggested the club transition to a family membership with a pool. Two years later the pool opened with a newly landscaped area on the lake and a new dock. The changes allowed the club to provide alternatives to golf for the entire family, ranking Beach Grove among the pioneers in the private club sector. Much has changed over the years since then, but the club remains focused on the key factors that have distinguished it in the market.
