The Golf Course

The River Club of Mequon is comprised of three distinct nines that provide an abundance of beauty and plenty of challenges. Built in 1963, it was these 338 acres of elegant terrain that allowed original course designer David Gill, with recent upgrades from architect Bob Lohman, to incorporate water, rolling grasslands and fairway-tightening timber into an enjoyable and stimulating test of golf for players of all skill levels. Four sets of tees help to promote parity and add enjoyment in every round of golf.

After a series of soil studies and strategic meetings involving the USGA’s senior agronomist, Robert Vavrek, The River Club’s golf course superintendent Jerry Panella and owner Tom Weickardt, a collaborative approach to continuous improvement for the entire golf course emerged. A multi-year strategy was put in place to upgrade the course’s overall conditions resulting in a significant investment in new turf equipment as well as some fresh architectural input from Mr. Lohman. In addition, a plan to expand and improve the club’s practice facilities is set to commence immediately. Every improvement is certain to appeal to the aesthetic sense of golfers for whom golf is a visual as well as visceral experience. And with 27 holes, this is a golf course that is available when you are.

These upgrades and developments,
 combined with the expert instruction from Head Golf Professional Andy Podolak and his team, gives every member of The River Club the opportunity to improve their golf game as well as enjoy the sensory qualities of the experience like never before.

Andy Podolak, PGA | Head Golf Professional

For Andy Podolak, golf has been a way of life deep rooted into his childhood. Growing up on Golf Avenue in Racine and attending St Catharine’s High School; Andy secured State and Junior PGA Championships before receiving a Golf Scholarship to University of Northern Illinois.

In 2004, Andy accepted his first full-time position in the industry as 1st Assistant to Jim Andresen at Wisconsin’s beautiful Tuckaway Country Club. It was in this role his extreme skill was observed and he was approached by members with an offer he couldn’t refuse; to fund his road to playing on the PGA tour.

Today, Andy owns 12 Wisconsin PGA Section wins, has competed in over 30 Nationwide and PGA Tour qualifiers and has played professionally on the Hooter’s Tour.

But personal achievement aside, Andy’s true passion and where his focus has been for the past 12yrs as Head Professional for Fire Ridge Golf Club, is around growing the game of golf through membership services, events and instruction. Andy has run over 500 golf events and outings and is nominated for the 2017 Wisconsin PGA’s Teacher of the Year Award.

The Head Professional is meant to be a resource and ambassador to all things golf and in that respect Andy has no weakness. He is consulted as an industry resource, and has been published quarterly for Golf Instruction Expertise in Midwest Golf Magazine since 2009.

In addition to everything outlined above, Andy offers RCM membership a robust knowledge of equipment and repair, drawing on his experience working with Taylor Made Tour Trailer for several years and maintains status as a Certified Master Club Fitter and professional club builder.

We truly feel RCM has secured one of the best resources for our membership in the addition of Andy Podolak, and welcome him, his wife Jenny, and two children Brooks and Etta to the River Club family, for what we anticipate will be a long and exciting tenure.
