The golf season is officially open at Antelope Country Club. The clubhouse opened April 1, and the kitchen will begin serving food April 6.
Lisa Hansen, who is in her fourth year as manager, said there are some exciting changes this year, including her new assistant manager, Karen Berg.
Berg, who is a 1975 Neligh-Oakdale graduate, recently returned to the area. Berg earned her culinary degree from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Atlanta in 2011.
"We're excited to have Karen with us and sharing her culinary talents," Hansen said. "We'll have weekly specials, and I can't wait to see what Karen comes up with."
Berg said she spent 30 years as a social worker before moving to Tennessee. She commuted to Atlanta for culinary classes.
Although she's been away for several years, Berg is no stranger to Antelope Country Club. Her parents, Kay and the late Ike Kinnan of Oakdale, had a membership for decades.
"I come from a golfing family and have golfed since I was in high school, so it's nice being back here," Berg said.
Hansen said the kitchen will be open seven days a week, from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m., and offer daily specials. They will serve breakfast on Sundays.
Antelope Country Club is open to the public, not just members. Non-members are welcome to eat at the clubhouse, as well as golf. The course is closed Tuesday and Wednesday evenings for Men's League.
Fees to golf nine holes is $12 during the week and $15 on weekends. Carts are also available for rent. Memberships are available for families, single, youth and associate. The cost increases for each after April 15.
Weekday lunch specials will be posted on the ACC's Facebook page and website https://sites.google.com/site/antelopecountryclub
