At Ruth Lake Country Club, the finest amenities coupled with inviting programs provide continued enjoyment for our Members and their families. The shared love of the games, like interests, and an engaging calendar make up the heartbeat of our club culture. From annual events and golf tournaments to dining and family activities, you are sure to discover why people make their home here at "The Lake".


The hub of the Ruth Lake Country Club is our premier 18-hole golf course, meticulously designed by architects William B. Langford and Theodore J. Moreau. The golf course was renovated/restored in 2005 by Arthur Hills/Steve Forrest and Associates to showcase its rich Midwestern terrain. In 2019, The Club completed a full bunker renovation and a redesign of the green complex on Hole #18, our signature hole. From the championship tees, the Par 71 layout plays to 6, 691 yards. Spectacular scenery, premium conditions, and on-course amenities, all contribute to this unique golfing experience. The Ruth Lake Golf Course is a platform for golfers of all skill-levels and ages with excellent programming to keep Members engaged.

In addition to the golf course, the Club also provides top-level practice facilities with full range and a separate short game complex. Our facilities are complemented by elite golf professionals led by Mark Labiak, Head Golf Professional.
