The City of Atlantis originated from an expansive 828-acre cattle farm, which Paul Kintz and Nathan Hunt acquired in 1958 and amalgamated with two adjacent parcels to initiate the city's development.
In the early 1960s, the initial phase of development included the establishment of an inn and clubhouse, along with the creation of 18 holes of golf, now known as the South and North nines. The third nine, the East course, followed shortly after. This entity was called the Atlantis Country Club and Inn, serving as a semi-public facility where property owners had the option to join annually.
Fast forward to the early 1970s, a committee of seven was formed to explore the possibility of making the facility private, which involved acquiring the grounds and facilities (excluding the Inn) from the Kintz family. With the Kintz family's cooperation, Atlantis Golf Club, Inc. was established, and in 1971, members purchased the golf course and Clubhouse. The first annual meeting was held on February 8, 1971, with the election of a Board of Directors, and B. Franklin Copp served as the first President.
In 2016, the club officially changed its name to Lost City Golf Club, marking an evolution in its history.
