The Belleville Country Club is a tree lined 9 hole golf course with seperate back 9 tees perfect for all levels of golfers. The golf course is over looked by our beautiful clubhouse and banquet facility with a full service bar and grill to enjoy .
I wanted to take a moment to clear up any rumors or hearsay that may have been going around lately. On Thursday, July 12, the Club had a visit from the ABC (Alcohol Beverage Control). The bartender on duty followed the steps we have in place when an unknown individual comes into our establishment; which is, ask if they are a member & if they are not then ask them to sign the guest book. Unfortunately, this procedure is not correct. The law states any guest must be accompanied by a member & sign the guest book. Due to the undercover agents not being a member we received a citation with a fine to be determined once the report is reviewed by the Topeka committee. The fines can be anywhere from $100-$1000 based on this particular citation.
It was expressed to us by the ABC that they would be returning in the future to ensure we are being compliant. Due to this, the bartenders & staff have been instructed to verify memberships if they have any doubt whatsoever. So please do not be offended if a club employee asks any of the following: if you are a member, or if your membership is up to date & then verifies your status with our membership list. We also ask if you, as a member, decide to bring in a guest to please sign your guest in. If the guest is not signed in they will be asked to leave the establishment.
We are currently looking at possible options to avoid any citations or violations in the future; until then please be understanding of the situation & if you have any questions please feel free to contact any board member or club manager.
Thank you for your patience & understanding with this matter.
