Fairmount Country Club

Members enjoy swimming at the pool from Memorial Day through Labor Day. The pool has a diving board and slide, lap lanes, bocce, ping pong, knock hockey and much more. Kids may participate on the swimming team, take private lessons or just enjoy the summer with friends. Many fun, family oriented activities take place throughout the summer.

POOL UPDATE – JULY 1, 2020

Effective Immediately, Members will be allowed to sign up for pool reservations once a day during weekdays (Monday through Friday) and on weekends Saturdays and Sundays)

Starting Tuesday, July 7th Members will be allowed to bring guests Monday through Thursday limited to one Guest per Member attending that day (so a family of 4 members who attends can bring up to 4 other guests on their guest day). Each family is limited to bring guests to only once per week and you must pay the $15 per person guest fee. All guests must be listed on your reservation and you, as the Member, are responsible for their abiding by all rules.

As New Jersey has implemented a 14-day quarantine for individuals who have visited a specific list of states (currently 16 states), we ask that no Members or guests come to the Pool or Timmons House if they are subject to this quarantine period. You will be certifying as such when you make your reservation for the Pool.

REMINDERS

Please remember to cancel your pool reservation if you are NOT able to attend to give other Members a chance to come in for that day. We are aware of numerous “no-shows” and by allowing guests and expanding weekend reservation times we are relying on our Members being considerate and not hoarding pool slots. We will be closely monitoring those that do not show up after making numerous reservations on good weather days (we understand plans may change last minute due to the weather). Please be considerate of your fellow members and cancel/change reservations you do not need by going to your confirmation email and clicking on the appropriate link. This will ensure more people can visit the pool.

NO toys/floats/balls/diving rings are allowed in the pool. Lifeguards will be instructed to enforce this rule as it is a requirement of the existing Government guidelines.

Please remember to wear a face mask and footwear when entering Timmons House to use the restrooms or for the bar.

HOPEFULLY COMING SOON

Effective July 2nd we hope to be able to open the Splash Pad and Slides. We are still waiting for the guidelines from the Government and this date may be delayed as we are at the whim of the Government. We will make an announcement once we are ready to open the Splash Pad and Slides and have necessary approvals

We also will be allowing Lifeguards to teach Private Swimming lessons once the Health department gives us the green light.
