    the PURSUIT
    of PLAY



Southworth clubs are playgrounds. Places where you and yours can experience the fun of sport, recreation, and an endless array of activities and events. Whether your idea of play is a round of golf, a competitive pickleball match, yoga on the beach, wine tasting with friends, or just kicking back with a good book, our clubs are places where you can choose how, and how much, you want to play—each day. We provide robust programming for kids to explore and discover on their own and immersive events for the entire family to enjoy—bonding generations while fostering individual exploration.

Our enriching and diverse experiences are designed to nourish the mind, body, and soul—from sport and fitness, to social and culinary—and beyond. Our clubs allow members to strengthen their connection to themselves, what they love, and those they love.

Here, you can be your best self for a lifetime of play.
