Indian Creek Yacht and Country Club pressed on with its Valentine’s Day Dinner despite the winter weather event which paralyzed much of the area. The Club staff arrived to work on Sunday to find the clubhouse without water due to a local outage, but with the return of water by lunch, the club was back open by 1 p.m. that day and ready to serve members for both lunch and the holiday celebration event that evening. The Club was fortunate to be able to serve the 30-member maximum allowed in the club dining room and an additional 18 members with a full-service dinner to-go. Every member received not only a delicious four-course meal, but a bottle of wine as well. Kudos go to the culinary team who have received rave reviews on entrees ranging from Fillet Rossini to shrimp, scallops, and grits sautéed with bacon, onion, green pepper, tomato and Andouille sausage served over rich white cheddar grits and with ratatouille. And, who could forget dessert? Chef Gabriel Gillette pulled out the stops with his Flourless chocolate torte topped with fresh raspberries whipped cream and melba sauce.
The Club has become known as a safe haven for members throughout much of the pandemic and this past weekend was no exception. The ICYCC team was and continues to be ready and willing to serve its membership, if at all possible.
