The Island Country Club

Deer Isle, Maine

  Mid-Season Report -- Island Country Club Still Growing in 90th Season


The Best Little Country Club in America has had a fast moving, exciting, challenging and productive summer in its 90th season. The golf course and tennis courts are being well used, the tournaments well competed, the Clubhouse well populated and the social events well arranged and well attended. As we move into the second half of the season there are even more exciting events activities planned.'


Wine Wednesdays, introduced in early July, brings new, informal social events to the Club's calendar on July 11,18 and 25, August 8,15  22 and September 5 and 12.. From 5:00PM until 6:30PM, members and their guests are encouraged to bring light appetizers to the Club and enjoy wines and beers from the Club's expanding selection.

The old club's first SOCK HOP will be August 1st, with music of the 50's and 60's, appropriate food and beverages, dance competitions, raffles and prizes and as much fun as we can back into one evening, and all for $40 per person.

Golf tournaments will be held almost every weekend from July 22d on, including the Perry Classic on July 29 with multiple competitions, outstanding food and wonderful prizes, and the new Spencer Insurance Tournament on Saturday August 4. Look for further announcements on that great addition to our schedule. There is also an expanding schedule of Tennis Tournaments, organized by new Tennis Director Brendan O'Dwyer. 

And if you want to get ready for those tournaments, the Club has both a Golf Professional, Alex Drenga, and a Tennis Professional, Bob Slayton, both of whom have posted signup sheets in the Clubhouse with more availability than we have ever been able to offer.     

Much that is familiar in maintaining the Club's sense of community will continue -- Tuesday evening Club Dinners; Twilight League, Scrambles, and, most important, the friendly smiles, warm welcomes and great camaraderie that makes being a member of the newest and "Best 90 Year Old Country Club in America" such a blessing.
