If you are looking to make new friends, JLCC is the perfect place to do so. We boast about our happy, non pretentious members and how much fun they are to be around. This group really knows how to have fun and are very welcoming to new members.
Another great thing about the Jefferson Lakeside membership is that there are no hidden fees. You won't receive an invoice at the end of the year asking for additional funds to make up for the surplus spent during the year.
The membership is nearing capacity so don't hesitate to stop by and tour the club. We anticipate selling the last few memberships and then prospective members will be placed on a waiting list to get in.

The number one reason we hear is that they fell in love with the beautiful Donald Ross designed championship golf course that skirts through an incredible parkland setting which still houses a few animal cages from back when the property was a zoo. The newly renovated green and bunker complexes offer some of the best conditions of any course in the area. The practice facility that we share with The University of Richmond is state-of-the-art. Our golfers can hone their skills at the driving range, practice their sand game in one of the practice bunkers or work on their putting on the expansive practice green.

The tennis program at Jefferson Lakeside is top-notch. Tennis instructor, Tom Magner has been with JLCC 28 years and is considered one of the better instructors in town, The five clay courts are always expertly manicured and provide some of the most fun playing surfaces you can find in Richmond.

Our pool is very active during the summer. Whether you are looking for a place to bring the children or just lay back and work on your tan, the JLCC pool is the perfect place. The pool sits adjacent to a creek affording beautiful views and making for a relaxing stress free setting.

The Club offers two workout rooms. The first is a cardio room with tread mills, elliptical machines and exercise bicycles. The second has strength training equipment for staying in great shape or to work on exercises that will benefit your golf game.
The Jefferson Lakeside Grand Ballroom is a sight to behold. It is the perfect place to host an event, or to join us for one of the many member events we host monthly. The large fireplaces, ten chandeliers, matching sconces and permanent dance floor provide the perfect setting for any event.
Our Grand Ballroom has been renovated recently. Please contact us for a tour and let us show you our beautiful facility.
Our programming is second to none whether it is fun or competitive golf or tennis events, social events for families (adults only or children) instruction for golfers and tennis players of all ages or relaxing in the grill during one of our parties enjoying a great meal prepared by our classically trained chef or some ice cold beverages, you'll feel at home at Jefferson Lakeside. Most adult events include childcare where the children participate in "Kids Club" activities with their friends at the club that they've met at the pool or at other events. Our kids' summer camps include golf and tennis instruction, music, arts and crafts, exercise programs and swimming.
"I was talking to another member recently and he told me that there is an intangible factor that makes Jefferson Lakeside very unique when compared to other country clubs. He said that at other clubs you make friends...but as a member at JLCC you actually become part of a family. Bonds and relationships are established here that are much stronger than just friendships. It was an interesting observation and on thinking about it, I came to the realization that he is right. Becoming a member at Jefferson-Lakeside provides much more than just the ability to play golf or tennis, to swim in the pool, to work out and exercise, or to simply enjoy the food. It gives its members access to a large extended family...people you enjoy spending time with, people who care about you, and people who you genuinely care about in return."
