The Prairie Club Board has recently taken an important step to increase boating at Hazelhurst by authorizing a new program to provide up to six Club-owned boats (COBs) for use on a trial basis. The COBs offer all Club members a new opportunity to enjoy boating on Lake Michigan at a fraction of the cost and effort of having and managing their own boat, while also protecting the safety of Club members and guests.

Details of the program—which are subject to change without notice–are available in the Hazelhurst Highlights and on the Beach Bulletin Board at Hazelhurst. Club members and their guests who are at least 12 years of age and pass a swimming test are eligible to use these COBs. All users must sign waivers of liability, available below. The Hazelhurst Beach Chair, Randy Lutter, accepts signed waivers as pdf or jpeg files at
