Social & Dining


In 2017, we introduced our personalized CCMO Tervis Tumbler drink program to overwhelming success. Members signed up for the
program, we ordered a CCMO Tervis Tumbler with their name, and they received it with all-inclusive fountain/iced tea drinks.
In 2018, we are continuing the program, but with a twist that makes it even easier. We have ordered COUNTRY CLUB OF MISSOURI
2018 wristbands to identify the Members who have purchased the all-inclusive program.
Wear the band, put it on your keychain, slide it onto any cup that you would like to use, etc. The annual fee of $40+ service charge will
cover your fountain drinks/iced tea for the rest of the year *
We can still order personalized Tervis Tumblers with your names, but they are not required to participate in the program.
*Please bring your own cup with you, as it does not include drinks using the Club’s to-go cups. We are working to
reduce/eliminate the use of Styrofoam, and that is part of the focus of this program. Find the sign up in your email - thank you for
your participation!

At the April Board meeting, the Board of Directors voted to approve a 2% dues
increase and a $1 increase in the Capital Improvement Fee (for all membership
categories except Social members) to help offset increased 2018 expenses. This
increase will be effective with the May billing. Our largest anticipated increase in
expenses for 2018 is group health insurance.

We are excited to move forward with the bunker renovation. By the time you
receive this newsletter, we should have a contractor under contract, with an
anticipated start date of July 16 and completion in 60 days, weather permitting.
Be reminded that we are moving forward with this work with no additional
assessment to the members.

Spring brings with it many opportunities for you and your family to come out and
enjoy your Club!! We hope to see you there!!

Hello from the CCMO Tennis Team!
We are very excited to be playing outdoors again on our beautiful (and newly resurfaced) CCMO tennis
courts! Spring tennis is in full swing, and you can still register for classes for the remainder of our session (ending on
May 27) by filling out a registration form at We have a lot of fun tennis activities and events
planned for the remainder of the spring and into the summer, so stay tuned. Also, starting in the spring the Club is
offering weekly social pickleball play available on a drop-in basis (scheduled for Fridays 6:30 - 8:00 pm in the spring
and Mondays 6:00 - 7:30 in the summer). Pickleball play is $15 for a 90-minute session, and to reserve a drop-in
spot, please text 202-669-1214 or email [email protected]

Summer registration is now live! We will continue our session-based sign ups as we have done in the winter and
spring, and you are welcome to sign up for as many clinic days as you’d like. Classes are offered throughout the week
for different age groups. You can view all of our programming information for the summer at,
and you can find our summer registration form there as well. Space for some of our summer classes are already filling
up, so please try to reserve your spot as soon as possible to ensure that you are able to attend the classes you
prefer. The summer session will run for 11 weeks (May 28 through August 12), but if you are unable to attend some
of the classes we will be happy to help you schedule make-ups or prorate your registration, so you’ll be charged only
for classes you can attend. If you plan on missing some classes during the summer, please enter the dates you will be
missing in the “feedback” section of your registration form or send an email to [email protected]

We are looking forward to an awesome summer and can’t wait to see many new faces on the tennis courts!
