Greetings from the pool, Members!

I'm Nick Zacek, and this is my fifth pool season as the summer SLCC Aquatics Director (tall guy, usually wearing blue sunglasses and a SL bucket hat), and 10th summer with the Spring Lake Country Club. It never ceases to amaze me how fast time flies!

A little about me for those brand new: During the majority of the year, I teach 8th Grade English and multiple electives at Spring Lake Middle School, and I just last year I retired coaching boys varsity swimming & diving for Spring Lake High School after 7x seasons (3x of them here), including helping coach both conference and even state champions. Years ago, my first part-time job was actually as a lifeguard here for SLCC between 2008-2012, so I’m quite familiar with this club and it’s pool operations.

My responsibilities are to provide a safe, cleanly, and enjoyable experience every day you visit the pool, while also helping coordinate a variety of events from swim lessons, to swim team, to Drenched in the Dark parties, pool parties, and more.

Without any more ado: I want to welcome all of you poolside once again for the 2024 summer season, as well as to welcome all of our new members to SLCC! If there’s anything I can do to help your time at the pool be great, or even better, please contact me as soon as you can ([email protected]), or come talk to me in person.

Just a few easy rules poolside we ask all members to follow to keep our facilities enjoyable for all members and guests:

  1. NO RUNNING – We had the entire pool deck professionally painted this spring, and so far it seems that generally the slippery nature of fresh paint and pool water hasn’t been an issue. Nevertheless, running is the most common cause of minor injuries around here, and they’re easy to avoid. Please walk.
  2. Pergola Reservations – Two years ago, we brought in two pergola shelters equipped with two swivel chairs, a three person couch, a carpet, a shade, and a table. These were a hit last year, and what helped make this work so well was putting these pergolas on a reservation system. Both of our pergolas will be available first come, first serve for 90 minute intervals, and you can either sign up for one (if available) when you arrive, OR you may email me in advance for a desired time slot of your choice. There is no charge to reserve, nor to use.
    1. As of this past Friday, we now have a third pergola shelter at the end of the kiddie pool that shades three loungers. There will not be a reservation system for this, unless it becomes justified
  3. Food & Drink – NO outside food or drink are permitted to the pool area per Health and Safety policy. Drinks are allowed inside the pool gate, but food is not. Please help keep our deck space cleanly by keeping all food items to the patio.
  4. Garbage – If you purchase a food or drink item from the Snack Shack, please dispose of all of its garbage when done (e.g plastic wrappers, straws, napkins, unfinished food, etc.). This will help us know what tables are available for members to have.

A few other quick points of emphasis:

  1. Pool Staff IDs: My pool staff of assistants, lifeguards, swim coaches, and lesson instructors are all equipped this year with lifeguard themed nametags on a red lanyard with a red whistle. I have a great team this year, and I’d love for you to be able to refer to each of them individually
  2. Locker Room Treatment: This is aimed mostly at the children who come to our facilities. The locker rooms are not places of vandalism or laziness. Refrain from leaving towels on the floors; flush urinals and toilets when done, and help us keep these facilities looking good.

As I said above: should you have any in the future, please direct any pool related matters you’d like to address with me, and I will get back to you ASAP.

Thank you, and enjoy the 2024 summer pool season!

Sincerely,
Nick Zacek
Aquatics Director
Spring Lake Country Club

Introducing SLCC Bucks - Our New Staff Incentive Program

Dear Spring Lake Country Club Members,

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new staff incentive program, SLCC Bucks, designed to reward our dedicated team members who consistently go above and beyond in their roles. This initiative aims to recognize and encourage exceptional service across all areas of our club, including member dining, golfing, the pool, youth activities, and general interactions.

As valued members of SLCC, your participation in this program is crucial. We ask for your help in identifying and acknowledging those staff members who demonstrate extraordinary efforts. When you experience outstanding service or witness a staff member going the extra mile, please take a moment to fill out a "Shout Out" card or report the behavior to a manager.

"Shout Out" cards will be conveniently placed throughout the clubhouse and pool areas, making it easy for you to recognize deserving staff members. Each recognized staff member will earn SLCC Bucks, which can be redeemed for gift cards and will also earn them a spot in an end-of-the-year drawing for two custom Pure Michigan Adventures.

Your feedback and support are instrumental in motivating our staff and enhancing the overall experience at Spring Lake Country Club. We will run this program from June 1 - August 31. Together, we can foster a culture of excellence and appreciation that benefits everyone in our community.

Thank you for your continued support and for helping us celebrate the outstanding contributions of our team.

Warm Regards,
Kevin Green, CCM
General Manager
Spring Lake Country Club

From Drew Paxton
July 8, 2024


Good Afternoon,

I hope everyone had an enjoyable and safe 4th of July. We have definitely seen a switch in the weather pattern recently. The early part of the season was slightly drier than normal, but in the last few weeks we have switched to a wetter, rainier pattern. We have received measurable rainfall on 12 of the last 21 days, on 3 of those days we received at least 1 inch of rain.

On the agenda for this week, we are going to sand topdress the greens again. We will work this in early in the week. It is a light rate so it should not be very noticeable, but you might see some sand on your ball.  Elsewhere, we will continue to add sand to bunkers, edge cart paths and we are going to prep the area on 12 for sod where the bag of spoils has been.

As always please replace your divots and fix your ball marks.
 

Drew Paxton
Golf Course Superintendent

We're excited to announce a new role at SLCC. As we enter into this new and exciting golf season, I am thrilled to announce a change in the Golf Department. 

Ray Davis has been a PGA assistant professional with Spring Lake Country Club for the past 19 seasons.  Over the past 18 months, we have been working together on an exciting new role for Spring Lake Country Club.  Ray will be taking on the new role as our Director of Instruction. 

Over the past several years, SLCC has seen an increased demand for this role within our department.  Ray brings a wealth of expertise and passion for instruction and club fitting.  Under his guidance, we are excited to introduce engaging clinics and individual/group personalized lessons, while continuing to elevate the golf experience for our members.

In addition to this, be on the lookout for more detailed information about Operation 36 Programming for new golfers (adults and juniors), PGA Junior League, along with many other exciting learning opportunities.

Winter is one of the best times to work on your golf game inside with our Trackman indoor bays.  Winter lesson series for Juniors, Ladies and Men are available.

You will find more information on pricing and how to sign up for lessons with Ray here.

Brandon, Blake and myself will also continue to provide lessons, teach Junior Golf, assist in clinics, and provide club fittings.
