Walnut Creek – Swims
Here are some important things to know about swimming at Walnut Creek:
Walnut Creek Country Club is located at 25505 Johns Road, South Lyon, 48178
Walnut Creek has been generous to offer their pool for our practices. Please remember that you are a guest and respect the facility at all times.
Parking and entering the pool After you enter the property off of Johns Road you will make the second right into the long parking lot. The pool building is located at the end of the lot. Please drive around to the right side of the building and park in the lot on the side of the building facing the pool.
Proper attire A coverup must be worn at all times in the parking lot – no swim suits or changing in the parking lot are allowed. Even on cloudy days you may want to consider sunscreen as the sun can be quite strong even early in the morning.
Locker rooms Locker rooms including shower facilities are available. Please be sure to leave the locker room clean and neat when you leave.
Equipment Kickboards and pull buoys are available. A limited supply of fins are available. There are no paddles so we suggest that you bring your own and don’t forget water or sports beverage.
Sign-In Each day we’ll have an envelope and sign-in sheet on the table on deck. Practice is $5 and cash only. We’ll have a limited amount of change if you do not have the exact amount.
MAC PRACTICES – All MAC Swimmers must have a USMS membership in order to participate in Walnut Creek practices. If you do not have a current USMS membership we will ask that you register online before starting practice. This is a requirement of our insurance coverage in order to hold practice at Walnut Creek.
We will be using Remind to cancel in the event of inclement weather – NOT EMAIL! If you show up and the doors are locked you may have missed a notification that practice is cancelled. Once you have joined when we cancel practice you will receive a text notification or e-mail to your phone (however you designate it when you set it up) that practice is cancelled – it’s that simple.

Walnut Creek is a private country club and we are lucky to be able to use it free of charge for the summer so please be respectful while on property. When you drive onto the property you will pass a small building on your right and make a right turn into the main parking lot. Drive all the way to the end and the pool house is directly in front of you. You will need to make another right turn and drive around to the left and park in the small lot to the right of the pool house. You should be able to see the baby pool and green mushroom waterfall where you can park your car (this leaves the main lot for member parking). Please make sure to clean up and close lockers, etc so that the pool is ready for members when we open. There are showers available for you after practice.
