About Us

The History of The Pioneer Club

The Pioneer Club was founded in 1948 by Mordelo Vincent and L. Lee Welch, to serve as a rendezvous point for Lake Charles businessmen. In 1978, the club relocated to its current location at the top of the Chase Tower where members could enjoy spectacular views of Prien Lake and downtown Lake Charles.

The Pioneer Club, with the rich and storied history since it’s inception in 1956, has operated under a set of rules and regulations that are reviewed and revised by the Board of Directors on a regular basis. For more detail, please click to read more about our House Rules.
