At the Athletic Center, just a few steps north of the Tennis Center, visitors can enjoy two outdoor pools. The whole family is sure to have some fun in the sun at the resort-style pool, and serious swimmers can train in the eight-lap Junior Olympic pool.

Lakewood Ranch Country Club Golf
Golf is a priority at Lakewood Ranch Country Club, which boasts of three 18-hole, par 72 golf courses. Two of the courses, Cypress Links and King's Dunes, were designed by "The King" golfer Arnold Palmer and eco-friendly golf course designer Victoria Martz. The third, Royal Lakes, was a product of international golf designer and master planned landscape authority Rick Robbins. All three courses were designed for all playing levels, which can be a breath of relief to beginners and, at the same time, pose a challenging game to expert golfers.
Cypress Links was opened together with the private club in November 2001. Teeing grounds have a slope rating ranging from 119 for white to 134 for black. King's Dunes was opened in March 2005, almost four years later, with a higher slope rating of 123 for white and 134 for black. Royal Lakes was designed for all levels. Beginners can tee at the red marker, which has a slope rating of 109, whereas experts can head for the black tee with a slope rating of 137.
