Locally-sourced ingredients, regionally-inspired menus,

and friends at the next table.

It’s a Saturday night in July in Harbor Country. Where do you eat?
If you’re a Chikaming member, that’s not a difficult decision. You head for one of the dining options at the
club. You know you can anticipate one of Chef Ross Olling’s ever-changing menus of fresh,

locally-sourced meats, fish, and fresh vegetables. You know these can be paired with a curated collection of
domestic and imported wines and followed with one of the chef’s specialty desserts. But most

 importantly, you know that whether you prefer dining on a terrace overlooking the golf course or soaking in
the atmosphere of a room in historic Shakespeare House, your table, and your friends, await.

The Shakespeare Dining Room.

In the timeless, timbered room that once hosted record crowds at
the 1924 International Live Stock Exhibition, members and
their guests can enjoy a variety of cuisines probably unimaginable
to those earlier visitors. The gracious room always seems to
be a perfect setting for the ever-changing menus and commitment
to fresh, locally-sourced foods that are Chef Ross’s specialty.

The Terraces.

In the short time these delightful outdoor options have been
available, they have unquestionably become a favorite
of members for warm summer evenings. At mid-day, views of both
the fourteenth and eighteenth fairways add to a post
round lunch with your foursome. And at sunset, there is probably
no more beautiful spot at the club to entertain friends.

The Hawthorne Room.

After its creation in 2004, the Hawthorne Room has served as the
club’s preferred setting for more formal occasions
and meetings of the entire membership. It can be transformed into
any number of elegant backdrops for weddings, retirement
and anniversary parties, reunions and large family gatherings, even
memorials and musical performances.

The Bard's Room.

When Shakespeare House first opened its doors, the local newspaper
pointed out Chikaming ’s new clubhouse had “a tap room”–
intriguing because 1925 was the height of Prohibition and it seems
doubtful the new room was being used for the consumption
of root beer. Whether it was a speakeasy or not, this charming room
is now an ideal setting for an intimate dinner with friends.

The Hawthorne Grill and Lounge.

As a smaller section of the Hawthorne Room, this has become the
preferred destination for Kentucky Derby and World Series
watching, men’s golf dinners, Women’s Invitational luncheons, and
a nightcap after events. In addition, it is also a very casual
alternative to all the other dining options, even hosting children’s
birthday and movie parties every summer.
