Swim Meet at the Lac Marois Country Club

Lac Marois Country Club[edit]

The Lac Marois Country Club, located on the shores of Lac Marois, is a members only club open from late June to the end of August.

It was founded in 1903 for outdoor church services. Land was donated in 1910 and the Lac Marois Union Church was built. The Lac Marois Country Club came into being in 1929, as a means to fulfill more than spiritual needs, and requested the church grant them the right to build a clubhouse on church property.

The Union Church owns the property and leases the land to the Interlake Youth Club, the parent company of the Lac Marois Country Club.

At L.M.C.C. (Lac Marois Country Club), children can take lessons. Lessons include swimming (lessons and swimteam), tennis, sailing, canoeing, and junior club.
