Swimming at the Grosse Pointe Hunt Club
Those new to the Grosse Pointes are often surprised to learn that the Grosse
Pointe Hunt Club is not only a hunt club, but also embodies a first-class
Tucked beneath the trees that line the driveway of the historic Cook family
family house on Cook Road in Grosse Pointe, the Grosse Pointe Hunt Club offers a
competition-size swimming pool, toddler pool, bath house, and a lovely lawn area where many family-friendly events
are hosted throughout the summer. Our Poolside Grille offers a delicious
salad and gourmet sandwich menu as well as snacks and refreshments throughout
the summer days. Special events may also be catered by our Club chef, Frank Cherro.
The GPHC has excellent opportunities for leisure and competitive swimmers
alike. The Club offers an outstanding developmental swim program, group or
private lessons, as well as team competition. A
membership to our club entitles you to the full use of the pool, discounted and
priority registration on all swim lessons, an opportunity for your children to
join the Seahorses swim team, the option to rent the pool for special events,
and the use of our picnic and BBQ areas for family functions or other events.
Our award-winning swim team, the Seahorses, are the heart of our swim club,
bringing children of all ages together
for wholesome and healthy activities all summer long. The Seahorses are both a
recreational and competitive swim team, dedicated to swimming fun, team spirit
and achieving one's personal best. In support of team
competition, the GPHC competes in the Michigan Inter-Club Swim Association
(MICSA). GPHC was MICSA White Division Champion in 1994, 1995 and 1997.
Besides youth activities, the pool always maintains several lap lanes open for
adult swimmers and offers private lessons to adult swimmers from the same
competent instruction available to the Seahorses. Open swimming is offered
daily to families and individual members. Pool activities are also
designed into our summertime Day Camp program for children.
