Don’t Let Your Summer Flop

Now seems to be the time to get your cool-down situation sorted, so we’ve compiled our annual list of places to make a splash below: 

  • Southern Pines Pool Park: Get a daily pass for $2 or an annual pass for $80/resident, $240/non-resident. You can buy a 25-visit bundle, and kids under 12 get in for less. The pool will be open Memorial Day through mid-August. Float here for more details.
  • The Country Club of Whispering Pines: The pool will be open May 24 through Sept. 2. Get a regular membership for $545; there is a 5% military discount. Jump in.
  • The Lawn & Tennis Club: Get a family pool membership now $475 — price goes up to $525 after May 15. The pool will be open from June 1 to Sept. 1. Military discounts are available. Grab the sunscreen.
  • Foxfire Village: The pool will be closed this season for repairs. Whomp, whomp. 
  • Longleaf Golf & Family Club: Join as a full privilege member for golf, pool and clubhouse access or become a social member for the pool and clubhouse. More info here.
  • Pinehurst Resort Pool Complex: With an adults-only pool and hot tub, zero-entry family pool with a water slide and splash zones and a bar, this option is how you have a summer. See how to become a member.


  • Pinehurst: The Rassie Wicker Park splash pad opens May 17, but closes on June 9 for the U.S. Open and for some restoration work. It reopens June 24, and stays open through Sept. 22. See hours here.
  • Carthage: The splash pad at the Moore County Sports Complex park will be open daily from May 18 through Labor Day. It then switches to weekends only through September. See hours here.
  • Southern Pines: This one, located at the Pool Park, could open as soon as May 20, weather depending. See hours here.

Bonus: Just want to splash around in someone’s backyard for a few hours? Try Swimply, the Airbnb for pools. Yes, really.
