History of the Lake Toxaway Country Club
As part of amenities offered to new residents of Lake Toxaway Estates, Reg Heinitsh Sr. formed the Lake Toxaway Country Club in 1963 and built an 18-hole golf course. In 1965, he purchased the old Moltz mansion for use as a clubhouse and provided pool, croquet, and tennis facilities. A marina was constructed near the club to provide a convenient location for homeowners to launch private watercraft or rent a boat for the day.
In 1985, Heinitsh Sr. sold a majority of the Lake Toxaway Company stock to his son, Reg Heinitsh Jr. This purchase included assuming management of the Lake Toxaway Country Club, and Heinitsh Jr. soon began working to improve its amenities. In 1988, the Club unveiled its two clubhouses sited directly above the well-manicured putting green. New pool facilities and tennis courts were completed in the 1990s.
In 2000, the Club opened its clubhouse at Bear Wallow Springs, which houses the fitness center and the Tom Fazio-designed golf learning center. In 2007, the Club’s 18-hole golf course underwent a complete renovation; the new course was the first signature design by renowned golf architect Kris Spence. Most recently, the Club renovated its existing croquet lawn in 2007 and added a second lawn in 2011.
Today, Lake Toxaway Country Club is a private club offering an award-winning 18-hole golf course and 20-acre golf learning center, 5 tennis courts, 2 world-class croquet lawns, a 5,300-square-foot fitness center, a seasonal outdoor pool, and exceptional dining in four locations. Membership at Lake Toxaway Country Club is limited to Lake Toxaway Estates property owners.
