Welcome to Nakoma! Whether you are a new member or are thinking of joining the Club, our Membership Committee will serve as your ambassador.
 

Meet the Membership Committee:


Chairperson:  Clint Walkner

Hi, my name is Clint Walkner. My wife Courtney and I enjoy the amenities the club has to offer, and most of all, the friendly people that are all around you. Our children, Sawyer and Hadley, love to enjoy summer on the golf course and at the pool. We dine on the beautiful outdoor patio and appreciate the views of the capitol and the golf course. Our family looks forward to growing up with Nakoma.
 
I enjoy Men’s Day nearly every Thursday and also have found the Club to be a great place to host events – the whiskey and wine tastings have been huge hits with my clients.
 
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions. The more comfortable you are with all the small things, the more you will utilize and enjoy Nakoma. Hit ‘em straight!



Andrea Lessner

My name is Andrea Lessner. My husband Justin and I have been members for three years. Our two daughters, Sydney and Jenna, love the Club as much as we do. They take swim and tennis lessons and participate in activities such as water ballet and swim team. Justin golfs as much as he can and I love meeting friends for wine by the fire pits on the patio. Nakoma is our home away from home every summer. 

There are several year-round events that we enjoy as well. We particularly like decorating cookies for Santa, having brunch with the Easter Bunny and splashing around at the 4th of July Pool Party. Drive-In Movie Night on the golf course and the annual New Year's Eve party are a couple of our other favorites, but there are many more.

In our opinion, the Nakoma community is what makes the Club so special. We have built relationships with countless new friends and families since we joined. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about what to expect. I hope to see you at the Club!

We’re the Rists. I’m Ryan and that’s my wife Katie and our two sons, Owen and Miles. We live just down the road from the Clubhouse and this is our second year at Nakoma. We initially joined for the swim team and I cannot say enough good things about the program. Our kids receive fantastic instruction from a top notch set of coaches – and they’re having a great time with their friends.

We ended up signing the kids up for junior golf as well. I was impressed with the small group size and how the pros do little things to make it fun. Our family enjoys playing tennis and golf, swimming and having dinner on the outdoor patio. Nakoma is a great place to be, and the people really make it special. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if you would like to speak with someone about Nakoma.





Andy Voeltner

My name is Andy Voeltner. My wife Becca and I have been members at Nakoma since 2017. We have four children – Max, Calvin, Evelyn and Lewis – no, the last two aren’t twins :). We all play golf and the kids play junior golf and tennis. Becca loves to bring the kids to the pool and enjoy a free (most expensive ever) cup of coffee and a book. The kids love the water and the food from the grill.

Becca and I have enjoyed many of the family events and some of the dining events. I am constantly being told that I show potential as a golfer, which I’ve come to believe is club slang for “you play like Charles Barkley,” or rather “your golf game is embarrassing, sign on to someone else’s foursome.” With that said, I golf as much as I can, including most Thursdays for Men’s Day.

We know what it’s like to be newer to the club and would be happy to help you ease into your membership.  We can help answer any questions you may have or give you tips on avoiding some social faux pas we’ve discovered as we fumbled through our first few years. Also, don’t hesitate to introduce yourself to Becca or me, so we can get to know you and help you meet some other members. See you at the Club!

I’m Gordon Ridley, here I’m enjoying golf on the 18th hole on a beautiful Fall day.  Susan and I were SPT members in the 90s when our children had many happy days at Nakoma.  

We joined as full members several years ago.  I’m now retired and was drawn to the golf program and our wonderful course. It’s worked out well, from the golf professionals to special events to being around people that love the game.  

Our children now return in the summer and their young children love the pool so that’s 3 generations that have enjoyed Nakoma.  I’m happy to be introducing Nakoma to prospective members; it’s easy work.
