Heritage Clubhouse Renovation Update - August 2, 2020

Our architectural drawings were updated by Richards & Grenier in January and, if you are interested, you can view them HERE.   The design has all the functionality of the plans that were presented last summer, but have been adapted slightly in order to preserve the location of our existing septic system which was verified to be in great condition by Enviro-Max Groupe Conseils Inc.   


The landscape design was prepared by Madore, Tousignant & Belanger in Lachute and is available HERE.   Stan has been working with the Municipality of Wentworth and has successfully secured our building permit to begin in mid-August.

In the spirit of keeping our costs down wherever possible, volunteers have already started to prepare the Club House for construction.  In the coming weeks, here is what you will see:

  • Dianne Burk will work with volunteers to pack all the glasses and plates on August 6 & 7

  • Peter Parsons and John Wilson will work with groups of volunteers to:

    • Take out the cedars around the Club House to facilitate the foundation

    • Remove the boards from the existing inside balcony

    • Get a dumpster and Porta-potty on site

    • Dig around the building perimeter to establish depth required for footing/foundation

    • Uncover septic pump tank, phone lines and propane lines

    • Demo washrooms


In order to facilitate the expansion of the Club House, we will need to create an area for new parking and foresee creating a ‘circular driveway’ so that people can, in the future, drop off people and continue on to the upper parking lot.  Excavation is set to begin late August/early September.  This is a preliminary plan of how it will look, but it will depend on what we find under the existing topography.

These changes may affect the circulation flow to the 8th tee and the exit coming off the 9th.  We will have fencing surrounding the areas that we are working on and directional signage to show you where to safely go.  The golf course will continue to be open, but water will be disabled in the washrooms starting late August. 

You project team has done an incredible job bringing us to this exciting point!  I would like to thank Stan Roy, Peter Parsons, John Vanstone, Andrea Minty, Dianne Burk, Tom Lowe, Rod Armstrong and Rob Kirkpatrick for their tremendous energy and devotion to helping realize the DCC Club House Renovation project for our 100th anniversary in 2022. 


And thank you to all the wonderful donors whose generosity is enabling the realization of this vision for us and for future generations!
