On Monday, November 13th members of the Portage Country Club Board gathered to break ground on the development of five premier residential lots located on the shores of Swan Lake just east of Portage.  Construction of the new private drive to serve the lots is now underway.  The course layout will change slightly but the addition of the new #2 hole will bring a healthy challenge and a beautiful view of the lake.  The new lots will offer tranquil views as well as easy connection to the golf course.

Portage Country Club is situated along the scenic shores of Swan Lake offering 18 holes of challenging golf, a clubhouse with an exceptional restaurant and bar, fully stocked pro shop and driving range.  Opened in 1930, the golf course has a traditional layout that is both challenging and playable.  First developed as a 9-hole course eventually growing to a full 18 hole top rated course.  The development of these sought after sites will help ensure the continuation of top quality golf for years to come.

Pardeeville BulldogsIn addition to providing Architectural Services, GEC’s team will be kept very busy also providing Site Design, Structural, and Plumbing Design services. GEC has been working with the Pardeeville Bulldog Foundation closely for the past several years, providing guidance on a number of projects improving their athletic fields. GEC Vice President, Kent Fish, not only provided his engineering expertise to the improvement projects for the baseball fields, field lighting, fencing and archway welcoming fans to the complex, but donated countless hours of his own time to assist with the construction of these projects.

Congratulations to Richard, Kent and all of the Design Team members on this project!
