A few weeks ago we delivered hundreds of Merrimac chairs to the Lake Geneva Country Club in southeastern Wisconsin. The club is known as the oldest golf club in the Midwest still on its founding site, which was established at the turn of the century in 1895. It is well-known for hosting the annual Men's Golf Invitational, cited as the oldest consecutive invitational in the United States that is specifically a match-play tournament. Its namesake city is ranked as one of the best lake towns in North America, especially renowned for its notable mansions connected with Chicago elite.
This very traditional club needed new chairs for their 100-year-old clubhouse dining room, replacing former seating that was in need of upgrades. For Lake Geneva’s board members, an essential highlight of the Merrimac model was its ability to stack up to eight chairs high. With limited storage options it’s Eustis Chair to the rescue! After the installation the board let us know of the warm praises that their membership gave to the new seating, noting the superb comfort they now enjoy during the Club’s main meals and special events. The Merrimac is customized to be light and easy to handle for their facilities staff, making it all the more desirable in dining rooms and halls throughout America. We’re pleased with the impact and look forward to future installs throughout the Midwest.
