High above Golden, Colorado in the foothills sits the historic Mount Vernon Country Club at 7600'. Besides its ideal location, the gem of this club for families is the swimming pool, which provides the perfect atmosphere to relax with family and friends.
The pool has a resort-like feel with spectacular panoramas of the surrounding foothills.
The 25-yard pool has six lap lanes, two of which are designated for adults only. It also has a 12’ foot diving well, tube slide, separate children’s pool, adult deck, event gazebo, bar, and restaurant. The club offers swim lessons, aqua aerobics classes, and a swim team.
The poolside restaurant, the Overlook Grill, serves burgers, salads, and sandwiches.
Members rent the poolside pavilion for private events, such as birthday and team parties.
When kids are done swimming they often run down to the playground.
While children swim and play, parents socialize at the poolside bar, lounge chairs, and at the pool parties, movie nights, and happy hour buffets the club hosts. The use of the pool is for members only. After the buy-in costs, pool membership is $395 annually. The pool is open daily from Memorial Day through Labor Day and the first two full weekends after Labor Day, weather permitting. See the slideshow for more pictures of the Mount Vernon swimming pool.
