Located in the Lake Dye Grill/Sports Barn complex, the family swimming pool is the center of life at The Ford Plantation in the spring, summer, and early fall. The main pool measures 75×37 ft and includes a dedicated lap lane. The Lake Dye complex also includes an 11×12-foot kids’ pool and a 9×12-foot hot tub. On-site locker rooms feature showers, towels, and an assortment of personal care items for members’ needs. Dining service is available inside Lake Dye Grill, on the porch, and poolside.
If you prefer to lounge poolside in relative peace and quiet, there is a second pool behind The Main House. Constructed in the 1980s by a previous owner of the property, the 85×25-foot pool ranges from four to eight feet deep and affords a breathtaking view of the Ogeechee River. The bottom of The Main House pool is black, making the surface of the water highly-reflective. The result is a stunning mirror image of the back of The Main House. In addition, the black bottom absorbs sunlight creating a natural heating effect for the pool.
