Competition/Lap Pool

The Club expanded in 2001 to add a 6-lane competition/lap pool and Clubhouse. This pool is open to all members for lap swimming; at least 2 lanes are marked off at all times for lap swimmers. The pool is also used extensively by the Swim Team and for the Tri-to-Win Triathlon. This pool is cleared once on the hour for 15 minutes of “adult swim”; during which children under 18 must remain out of the 2 larger pools. A covered pavilion is located next to this pool and is available for members to reserve for special occasions too.


Family Pool

The Family Pool was remodeled and expanded in 2002; it offers zero-entry access, a slide and diving well, a “jet” lounge area, and the “magic mushroom”. This pool is cleared once on the hour for 15 minutes of “adult swim”; during which children under 18 must remain out of the 2 larger pools.A covered pavilion (which may be reserved by members for private events) sits behind this pool on the crest of the hill. Grills are available at each pavilion for guests to use and share freely.
