The Taylorville Kiwanis Club heard from the manager at Lake Shore Golf Course, during the weekly meeting at the Taylorville Moose Lodge on Tuesday.
Jason Boldig and his family are 3 generations of golf course operators, and eleven years ago leased the Lake Shore Golf Course from the Taylorville Park District. Boldig told Kiwanis members it’s been a great relationship, and the 2 entities just signed a 3-year extension.
Boldig and his family moved to Taylorville to manage Lake Shore in 2012, adding his company is responsible for all maintenance and equipment at the course, with capital improvements the responsibility of the Park District. Boldig added that when he’s suggested those capital improvements to the course, the Park District has worked with him to make them happen, enhancing the golfing experience.
Boldig said COVID was a blessing to Lake Shore Golf Course, getting people outside and as a result, rounds of golf at the facility south of Taylorville are up, and the course is also attracting more golfers from out of town. He added he’s also seen equipment sales grow and expects that to continue.
The Taylorville Kiwanis Club is part of a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. Weekly meetings are held Tuesdays at noon at the Taylorville Moose Lodge. For information on the club, go to taylorvillekiwanis.com.
