Dellwood Country Club Metamorphosis

For the past two years Dellwood Country Club has been going through a change that has redefined what the club is and has brought a new level of services and amenities to its members. Virtually every aspect of the club has been redesigned, remodeled, expanded and enhanced. The project wrapped up in May of this year and has members and the community buzzing about the result.

The first phase of Dellwood Country Club’s transformation was completed in 2013 with enhancements to the golf course. Every hole was redesigned. The bunkers throughout the course were replaced using white sand and the latest technology in bunker design. New cart paths were installed through the entire course to compliment a new fleet of custom golf carts. The golf course has always been one of the top rated courses in Minnesota and now the conditioning of the course is the best it has been in the 45 year history of the Club.

The second phase was completed in 2014 when the pool complex opened to national recognition. Dellwood members enjoy a true “resort” environment with two separate pools for their summer enjoyment. The complex includes a 25 yard lap pool; a lazy river with an expansive zero entry pool for toddlers; cabanas; towel service; outdoor dining area with a fire pit and a full service bar. There is nothing like it in Minnesota. The pool complex reflects the commitment Dellwood Country Club has to creating a family oriented and unique member experience.

The recently completed final phase was the most extensive and complex - a complete remodel and expansion of the clubhouse. Every square inch of the clubhouse was updated, remodeled or expanded. Members now enjoy the casual elegance of Dellwood Country Club’s new clubhouse. New amenities were added including a 1,400 square foot Fitness Center; Member Bar; new Golf Shop; Fine Dining room and an outdoor dining patio. This fall a golf simulator will be added to the Fitness Center enabling members to play and practice year-round. 

Dellwood Country Club offers a wide array of services and amenities not found in any other country club in Minnesota. The Club has a suite at the Xcel Energy Center where members enjoy Wild hockey games, concerts and all events held at the Center. The Club’s pontoon boat on White Bear Lake is available for members to use with family and friends. Members also benefit from a full suite of concierge services. 

The metamorphosis is completed for now; however, the Club is always adding new services and amenities to enhance their member’s experience. More information is available on the Club’s web site
