A Million Ways for Kids to Enjoy Summer at Greystone

Featured Image

kids golfing

You can give your kids the “BEST SUMMER EVER” at Greystone Golf & Country Club in 2023. There are great amenities, big fun to be had at the pool, and friendly new faces. But if it’s going to win as the ‘BEST SUMMER EVER’ it has to include the summer camp at Greystone. Camp is open to kids ages 5-12 and will be running for four full weeks, although they do fill up fast! July 10-14 and July 17-21 are the only two weeks that remain with limited availability for the 2023 season. If you haven’t signed your kids up yet, don’t wait! Also, you don’t have to be a Member to enjoy the perks of summer camp! 

The camps include arts and crafts, golf, tennis, swimming, and more. Each week of camp has a different theme, so you may want to plan on attending more than one week. 

Making a Splash

Of course for many kids, the most important part of summer is time spent by the pool–there is plenty of that at Greystone. Get ready to hear shrieks of laughter from the three waterslides in the family pool accompanied by a plethora of fun activities from new Aquatics Director, Torry Breehl!

kids in poolTorry will also be reconvening the Greystone Gators Swim Team with Monday through Friday practices starting May 30. The Greystone Gators is a welcoming environment designed to support kids in growing as swimmers. Ages 8 and under practice at 8:45 AM each weekday. Ages 9 and up get started at 9:30 AM. Sign up here! Please note that children must be able to swim from one end of the pool to the other unassisted to qualify for the team. If they are not quite there yet, this is the perfect time to sign them up for lessons!

The Gators have historically averaged about 40 participants per team and Torry hopes to grow that even more. She knows friendships are built on teams and many Greystone families have children who have formed long-lasting bonds through hours spent working together as Gators. If you’re looking to get more involved at Greystone along with your kids, we are in need of parent volunteers to officiate swim meets–contact aquatics@greystonecc.com for more information.

To officially kick off the 2023 summer season, the pool opened to Members on Friday, May 26, ushered in by the annual Miami-themed Memorial Day Party! If you missed it, don’t worry, we have a full slate of youth activities planned. From swim lessons to dive-in movies and sundae Sundays, there are plenty of activities to fill your summer calendar with at Greystone until the back-to-school carnival bash in August!

Torry plans to “bring the fun” for kids at Greystone all year round, so look for more exciting activities for Members to be a part of once school does get back in session. But remember, squeeze as much fun as you can into these precious summer days–something that’s much easier with all the great options available to you at Greystone.

Getting in Some Swings: Overhand and Underhand

Greystone parents love that they can give their kids so many choices for staying active and socializing during the summer months. There is no better place in Alabama to be a young golfer than Greystone because the Legacy course is home to the Blackburn Golf Academy, which offers students of all ages and abilities a state-of-the-art teaching center. Mark Blackburn, who was named one of the 50 Best Teachers in America by Golf Digest, leads the academy. Kids can take private lessons or participate in clinics to learn the game and the valuable life skills that come with it.

The same is true if you want to get your kids into pickleball or tennis–in the past few years, junior racquet sports have seen a resurgence at Greystone and across the globe. Kristijan Mitrovski, USTA Alabama Tennis Professional of the Year, and his staff offer clinics for beginners and juniors, as well as private lessons. The completely renovated Greystone Racquet Center is unrivaled in the Birmingham area. 

Plus, the Lakeside Activity Center, which opened in 2022, includes four pickleball courts, a regulation-sized basketball court, and the chance for kids to catch some fish in the freshly stocked pond by the 9th hole of the Founders Course. 


Along with the abundance of programming for kids, there is fun at Greystone for the whole family! Of course, the 2023 Regions Tradition just wrapped up on May 14. This annual tournament is a Greystone Member must-do with a plethora of activities and great golf the whole weekend. The Summer Greens Music Festival on June 11 is another summer highlight for Greystone with a night of great music capped off by country duo Maddie and Tae headlining.  Tickets are going quickly for this fun, open-to-the-public event. Please visit this link to purchase today and get a taste of the fun events Members get to experience year-round. Make sure to keep tabs on the events calendar so you don’t miss a moment of fun to be had at Greystone this summer!

Your kids will be excitedly exhausted from all the fun at the end of each summer day they spend at Greystone. And, in the decades ahead, when you ask them to remember the summer of 2023, they’ll tell you it was the "BEST SUMMER EVER!"
