Yes, everybody has a pool. But we have two: one outdoor pool with a tiled patio, deck chairs, and its own bar, Froggy’s, and an indoor pool with its own waterfall, and therapeutic pool!


Our Tom Fazio designed golf course is among the most beautiful in Ohio: with creekside marshes, abundant wildlife, and the everlasting beauty of the lake makes this course a perfect setting for your weekend round or first foray into the sport.
