Patrons can relax with the club’s many additional amenities, such as the large swimming pool, hot tub, and a recently revamped clubhouse with all-new locker rooms and showers, a pro shop, and a well-stocked fitness center. With two dining options, patrons can keep up with volleys on the patio bar overlooking the center court, or fill up on comfort fare and NFL action at the satellite-equipped sports bar.
