What is ATC???

July 31st, 2017

ATC  is an acronym for Against The Current. ATC has become one of the most popular classes at Granite Falls this summer.  ATC is a dynamic, fast-paced workout that combines a variety of exercises, such as, strength training, toning, flexibility, aerobic conditioning, and movement against and with the current of our Lazy River. 

Our weekend classes combine ATC with fun in the sun in our large outdoor pool. Come join us Tuesdays, Thursdays, or Saturdays at 9:00am to be part of the party!!!!

Meet Y’all at the Watering Hole

July 11th, 2017

In 2010, Jacky Wilson and Mike Tucker had a great idea:  open the first pool-side bar in Rolesville . 7 years later, The Watering Hole is a hugely popular feature of our outdoor pool amenities.

The Watering Hole has a ton of options including 10 total beers on tap (6 more than 2016) including 8 craft beers and 2 domestics.

If you’re not a beer fan, we have a bunch of mixed drink options with tonic, soda, cranberry juice, orange juice, and bloody mary mixers (plus lime and salt for your margaritas!) If you want to upgrade with a top shelf liquor, check out Patron Silver Tequila, Hornitos Lime Tequila, Crown Royal Whiskey, and Goose Vodka.

In addition, we have 4 frozen drink options: strawberry daiquiri, lime margarita, pina coloda, and sangria (BONUS- these are not pre-mixed with alcohol, so you get to pick your mixer or we can serve it as a non-alcoholic smoothie for adults and kids.)

Watching your carbs? Check out Simply Seltzer- available in 2 flavors, light on calories and even lighter on carbs.

To top it all off, we will have a total of 9 Sunday afternoon beer tastings. Come sample a wide array of craft beer options and then buy a cup of your favorite brew.

Your friendly neighborhood bartenders, Angie, Matt, and Michelle, look forward to serving you Friday-Sunday, so come join us at the best (and still only!) pool-side bar in Rolesville!
