Some of what we offer:
Founded in 1958, the Lake Forest Club has, in its first 50 years, established itself as one of the North Shore’s preeminent swim, racket and social clubs. Children and adults, families and empty nesters enjoy the Club for its year-round activities.
Located in scenic Lake Forest, Illinois nearby Lake Michigan, the Club follows its founding mission to offer members great recreational activities. The LFC does so first as a sporting club. It provides members a wide range of sports to choose from, and for all levels of play. From swimming and diving, to paddle tennis and tennis, the Club’s Pros are committed to ensuring the right combination of fun and competition for any and all junior or adult members.
The Club's facilities have grown to today include 3 pools - including a diving pool and a baby pool - 12 clay tennis courts, and 4 paddle courts with warming hut. Additionally, the Lake Forest Club offers members one of the best summer day camps on the North Shore for our young members. Offered for children ages 5-12, the Camp runs daily from June through August involving children in a wide range of athletic and cultural activities.
The Lake Forest Club has a rich social tradition as well, with events for parents, and for families taking place throughout the year. Finally, we support our friends in the community. We open our club to non-members’ social activities, offering a unique dining / ball room environment as well as outdoor party facilities in the summer.
FAMILY FUN & ENRICHMENT
The Lake Forest Club has earned a stellar reputation refined and strengthened over the last 58 years for its emphasis on fun and enrichment for our children and the nurturing of the family unit. Many of our members who first learned to swim at our Club now watch with joy as their own children do so in these very same waters. They burst with pride as their Jr. Sharks excel in area wide meets, doing so not only as skilled competitors, but with a welcome display of good sportsmanship. And it won’t be that long before these same children have families of their own and become members of The Lake Forest Club. And so the tradition lives on.
