If there is a key factor contributing to the success of the Saginaw Bay Yacht Club, one word would sum it up and that is “PRIDE.” The pride is partly due to the history and perseverance of its strong and loyal membership and their love for the Saginaw Bay Yacht Club. The Club celebrated its 125 year anniversary in 2019.
With our membership over 220, the Club has a welcoming cross section of members. Some of our membership choose to be Social Members. These benefits include use of the Clubhouse, the ability to serve on the Board of Directors, carry one vote and would share in the dissolution of the Club. Others in the Club choose to be a Full Member. These benefits include the use of the Clubhouse and all of its facilities, the ability to own, launch and moor a yacht on Club property, hold a dock, serve on the Board of Directors or as a Flag Officer, two votes, and interest in Club property and assets in the event of dissolution. There are more classifications of membership, these being the two most popular. For further information on membership please go to “Membership.”
The Club has full dining and lounge facilities. There are plenty of activities here to keep everyone involved and enjoying the social life of the Club. Besides enjoying our fabulous views of the Saginaw River and entertaining boat traffic, we offer so much more. We offer live music on our patio on Saturday nights throughout the Summer, Sunday “Tail Gate” menu and the games on the TVs throughout the football season, Mother’s Day Brunch, Easter Brunch, Christmas Parties, New Years Parties, Men’s Night Party, Ladies Night Out Party, Venetian Night, Blessing of the Fleet and more. For further information, go to “Events.”
As a member, you may also take advantage of your Club by hosting any number of events like birthday parties, graduations, retirements, showers, and the like. Our food and staff are the best in the area. Our Chef, Harry, has over 27 years of experience as Chef at one of the top restaurants in the Tri-Cities area. For further information, go to “Dining Room” and “Facilities.”
With the nautical ambiance of the Club, the manicured beauty of the grounds, and the boating traffic on the Saginaw River, it is truly an experience privy to the membership of the Saginaw Bay Yacht Club.
