Family and Short-Course Olympic Pools
Jump into the refreshing waters of the Club’s two outdoor pools, with stunning 180-degree views of the Intracoastal. At the heart of the Club and surrounded by palms, gardens, cabanas and the Bird Cage, our Family Pool is mostly used during the spring and summer. Carlouel also has a second, short-course Olympic pool (heated/cooled) used by our swim teams, scuba classes, and for swimming lessons. Whether you love to swim for pleasure or for fitness, Carlouel’s pools are available to members and guests year-round.
