Parkersburg Country Club Pool Rules & Practices

General Pool Information
There is always a Pool Manager on duty, and we are required by the Health Department to have a Certified Pool Operator (CPO).  We have two CPO’s on our staff.  We have an automated chemical controller on site, test our pool waters twice daily, keep a log of chemical levels, and offer excellent supervision and staff.  We have complimentary group swim lessons, private swim lessons, and a competitive swim team; details can be discussed with a staff member.  We offer games and most often live entertainment for holiday events.

No smoking is permitted in the pool area.

Pool Opening & Closing
The Pool is scheduled to open the weekend before Memorial Day Weekend each year.  The pool closes after our Labor Day celebration. 

Seasonal Pool Hours
Monday - 11:00 – 5:00 (the Club is closed but we offer limited food service at the pool)
Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday – 11:00 – 7:30

Guest Policy
All members may bring an adult member at any time, on any day.  There is a $7 guest fee for adult guests.  All members must sign in a guest at all times.  There is a sign-in sheet upon entrance to the pool area.  School aged kids of members can only bring other school aged kids that live in Wood County on Wednesdays and Fridays.  No exceptions.

Special arrangements can be made on a weekly basis if you have family in town.  Also, Grandparents may bring as many grandchildren for just $5 a day.

Pool Attire
All members must have bathing attire on at the pool.  Any member wishing access on the patio or in the bar area must have on a cover up and shoes.

Pool Café/Snack Shack
We have a pool café staffed through the season, which we offer drinks, snacks, candy, ice cream and frozen novelties.  We also offer a full-service menu, poolside, with the menu items made in our clubhouse kitchen, and delivered to you by our poolside servers.


Pool Parties
Pool Parties at Parkersburg Country Club can only be booked and hosted by Club Members.  The pool may close no earlier than 7:00pm for a pool party, and only if approved by the General Manager.  There are special club events that make an exception to an earlier pool closing time.  All early closings will be announced in the weekly emails, and in the pool office.  A calendar of all pool party and pool events is posted in the pool office.  Set-up for pool parties may begin no earlier than 7:00pm.  Family members may come a half hour early to begin set up, but all guests are mandated to show up no earlier than time of party.  Since the pool closes at 5:00 on Mondays it is encouraged to book a pool party on Monday, especially for kids.  There can be no pool parties scheduled on Wednesdays.

Pool Party Fees:
There must be two certified lifeguards on duty for pool parties, and a Pool Manager or Assistant Manager.  If the count goes over 40 people, an additional lifeguard will be necessary.  Each lifeguard is paid $10 per hour, and the Manager on Duty is paid $15 per hour.
