With the snip of a pair of large scissors, Collin and Dylan Seubert officially opened their parent’s business Friday afternoon.
Liz and Brian Seubert, of Chippewa Falls, purchased Lake Wissota Golf & Events in December 2017 and celebrated the re-opening of the establishment. The venue has been open for events throughout the winter and the restaurant, bar and grill opened this spring. Golfing will be seasonal as weather permits.
Since the purchase was made final, the business has undergone a variety of renovations and updates, including updating carpeting, general and grounds equipment, docks, the menu and golf carts, which are now electric and include GPS. More staff and premium wine were also added to the venue.
The Chippewa Falls Area Chamber of Commerce hosted a grand re-opening with a ribbon cutting at Lake Wissota Golf & Events Friday afternoon, featuring appetizers, networking and a small ceremony. The Seuberts were given their first “tax-free dollar” at the event as well, with a framed dollar from the chamber.
Mitch Fredrickson, the venue’s manager, spoke at the event, introducing attendees to the management staff who will be helping run the golf activities, restaurant, kitchen and grounds of the venue.
Fredrickson, who has been with the business since its previous owners, said he is excited for the new venue’s capabilities and changes, adding that people can expect the “best in the Chippewa Valley for playability and customer service.”
For new owners Liz and Brian, the ribbon cutting and grand re-opening signified the official start of fulfilling their desire to continue to remain involved in Chippewa Falls — a main motivator in their purchasing of Lake Wissota Golf & Events.
“I think it was, we live in Chippewa Falls, so to be a part of something that’s a bigger part and also to give back to the community,” Liz said.
