Salisbury Country Club:

Pool Complex

Midlothian, VA

As the first phase of implementation of their master plan, the Club chose to replace their 35-year-old pool complex. As part of the master plan, the pool complex was relocated to permit other Club amenities to be more fully developed in the future.


Constructed in accordance with current APSP and USA Swimming guidelines and recommendations, the new pool provides decreased liability for the Club and increased safety for the members. The new pool also greatly increases aquatic recreation options. A beach entry provides in-water lounging opportunities and easy access for the very young, the elderly and the handicapped user. Jetted benches are provided, including several in an area to receive a future aquatic gazebo. Provisions have also been made for a future spiral slide. A separate wading pool is furnished with water jets in a soft rubber spray mat.

The program for the locker rooms, lifeguard and equipment areas, and snack bar was divided into several small buildings, which help to define and enclose the pool area. In addition, the scale and size of these buildings are in keeping with the Club’s existing Williamsburg style, characterizing them as outbuildings subordinate to the main house.

Key features of this pool complex include a family-oriented 7,045 square foot pool, including diving well with 1-meter board, six 25-meter racing lanes and recreational area with beach entry; 113 square foot wading pool, with spray mat with water jets, and its own shade pavilion; new locker rooms, lifeguard and equipment areas; new snack bar, also large enough to serve golfers at the turn and to provide food service for Club outdoor special events; new, signature entry pavilion with custom teak check-in desk and Club’s logo set in custom pavers.
