Kenwood CC is a family oriented and member-owned Club boasting an excellent reputation for spectacular events, fine and family dining along with an extensive array of activities and events to attract all ages.  Kenwood CC’s spacious clubhouse is 98,000 sq. ft. and was recently renovated in 2015 as part of an extensive club-wide project.  This Centennial project added a new 3,000 sq. ft. fitness center, a 19th hole bar and dining room, an updated men’s locker room and remodeled golf shop. The Club offers multiple ala carte dining outlets and event spaces for up to 350 people.

Kenwood Country Club offers two championship golf courses with distinctly different playing experiences, a top-flight caddie program, teaching clinics and programs and newly renovated driving range, indoor practice facility and short game areas.  The swimming pool and diving complex with a bar and café also was recreated into an attractive resort style complex in 2015 as part of the Centennial project. Racquet sports includes six tennis courts; four clay and two hard courts (which may be set up for pickleball) and four platform tennis courts for winter play.

The Club is open year-round.  April through December various dining options are available every day with the main dining rooms open Tuesday through Sunday.  January through March there are more limited dining options from Wednesday through Sunday.  Racquet Sports and Fitness are open seven days a week year-round.  The Pool complex including bar and café is open every day between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
