As soon as you meet the management team of Bloomington Country Club, you understand why they say, "It's where you belong."
Members immediately feel the club's positive and warm atmosphere, where they can experience instant connections. When I met with general manager Teresa Korpi, she told me the St. George club has all the amenities of any first-class country club, but with membership fees that are extremely reasonable. It also offers different membership levels, designed for people of all ages and lifestyle interests.
Let me tell you about the fabulous golf course. Designed by Bill Neff, the course is situated along the Virgin River with nearly 200 acres of Bermuda grass. The layout was designed for perfect play where you can enjoy a challenging, but rewarding, round of golf on either nine or 18 holes. Like most private golf courses, this one doesn't have a marshal because the members take care of the course. They also enjoy the support of Head Pro Scott Brandt, a Utah Section PGA Professional of the Year who offers private and group instructions.
The club's other amenities include dining, tennis and swimming, as well as various social events. For example, you can be a social butterfly and attend the famous shrimp night the last Friday of every month or any of the special parties held throughout the year. Bloomington is also home to a group dedicated to the art of bridge that meets regularly during the week and accommodates all skill levels.
The Bloomington Country Club is also home to an Olympic-size pool that was recently refinished. The tennis program boasts six brand-new lighted courts as well as lessons from head tennis pro Clark Hancock for all ages and skill levels. As a premier tennis facility, Bloomington hosts the Huntsman Senior Games as well as special events like USTA Level 5 and Duel in the Desert.
With something for everyone, I'm sure you can see why Bloomington Country Club really is a place where you belong.
