A Million Ways for Kids to Enjoy Summer at Greystone

Featured Image

Greystone Golf & Country Club is the kind of place where kids will experience their ‘BEST SUMMER EVER.’ This comes as no surprise, as the Club is a summertime oasis for Members of all ages and walks of life–and that, of course, includes children. 

Camp at the Club

Parents are convinced by the amenities and friendly faces alone–but in order to win ‘BEST SUMMER EVER’ for a kid, their Greystone summer experience must include a week at summer camp. The camps–which allow kids to explore crafts, golf, tennis, swimming, and more–are open to ages 5-12 and run four different weeks between June and July. Not to mention, you don’t have to be a Member for your kids to enjoy the perks of summer camp!

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. Memorial Day typically signals the start of the Club’s outdoor pool season, which is accompanied by countless types of water-filled fun. From swim lessons to “dive-in” movies, there are plenty of activities to fill your kids’ summer calendars. And, if you or your kiddos have an occasion to celebrate, Greystone allows Members to book a private pool party! Our team provides food, beverages, and any other required supplies to make for a fun, seamless celebration! 

For kids interested in a little more than splashing around in the Club’s pool, the Greystone Gators Swim Team might be more their speed. The team is suited for strong swimmers and beginners alike and allows kids to grow their skills and confidence in a team environment. Joining the Gators is also a great way for your child to make new friends. Many Greystone families have children who formed long-lasting bonds through hours spent working together as Gators.

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 Golf Digest’s Best Teacher in America in 2023,  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, named Tennis Professional of the Year in 2021 by USTA Southern Alabama, 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. 


Your kids will be exhausted from all the fun they had at the end of each summer day spent at Greystone. And, in the decades ahead, when you ask them to remember their favorite summers, they’ll tell you the ones spent at Greystone were the "BEST SUMMERS EVER!"
