In 1860, the Crownhart brothers, Henry and George, embarked on a journey that would leave an indelible mark on history. Their vision led to the acquisition of Norcross Point, where the first Lakeshore Yacht & Country Club took shape, marking the dawn of a new era of lakeside elegance.

The Ocean House, a beloved establishment, thrived through the late 1800s but succumbed to a devastating fire. Undeterred, The Angler's Club acquired the property, determined to rebuild, only to face yet another fire in the early 1900s.

Amidst adversity, a resilient spirit persevered. In 1910, the present-day clubhouse emerged as a testament to architectural innovation, boasting steel and concrete construction—an icon of its time. For over a decade, it stood as a symbol of refinement.

As the 1920s arrived, the building transformed into the Bayshore Inn, offering solace and recreation. In 1927, it embarked on a new chapter as the Syracuse Yacht & Country Club, becoming a cherished institution.

In 1954, the legacy continued with the birth of Lakeshore Yacht & Country Club. Today, it stands as the epitome of excellence, the premier destination for golf and country club experiences in Central New York—a testament to enduring elegance, resilience, and unwavering dedication to its members.
