Pool

Open 10:00am to 6:00PM

Our beautiful pool facility was designed for relaxing and socializing. With certified lifeguards, dressing rooms and a snack bar, it is a great place to cool off on a hot summer day. The Greenwood Country Club pool side is a terrific place for parties. Schedule a poolside birthday party for your children, grandchildren, or just a group of friends. We’ll bring the party poolside for your enjoyment. Spend the day with us, through lunch and dinner, by taking advantage of our poolside food & beverage service.
