The Jayhawk Club Wellness Center


Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Reviews

The Jayhawk Club is a fabulous facility, surrounded by 27 beautiful holes of golf with rolling terrain. The Wellness Center is one building (of many) at the Club. The Center contains state-of-the-art equipment (Technogym). It is a two-story building with cardio and locker rooms on the first floor. The lower level contains a weight room and pool. The pool room is all glass on the east side looking out over the golf course and pond. The other three sides of the pool room are surfaced with limestone.

While the Wellness Center utilizes the highest quality of equipment, the opposite is true of the four-lane pool. There are very few water drains and the lane lines are pathetic. The rudimentary lane 'separators' are ropes with intermittent Styrofoam floats that move up and down the ropes as the day progresses. They do nothing to dissipate turbulence. I haven't seen lane lines like this since attending summer camp on a lake in the 1950s. Think "Camp Run-A-Muck". As a result, the water is very choppy and turbulent, even with only two swimmers in the water. On the plus side, the enclosed pool room is very warm in the winter and the pool temperate is consistently maintained at a comfortable 82ºF. Immediately outside the pool room are two private showers/restrooms.
