Membership

Membership at the Allatoona Yacht Club (AYC)

Families who join the Allattona Yacht Club often find that they quickly feel part of a much larger extended family of friends.  That is not surprising since every AYC member shares a love of boating on THE LAKE and the AYC social schedule provides many opportunities to meet other members while participating in fun-filled events.  Whether it is a moonlight cruise with other members on a houseboat, casino night, dancing to live bands, the games of "Live-In Week", Easter egg hunts, Christmas Party, cardboard regatta, wacky "theme parties", or just the interaction with other members at the Club Mess, new members soon feel like veterans and enjoy the camaraderie of many new friends.

Behind the private gate, Club members enjoy a truly beautiful natural surrounding, ever-changing with the seasons, but always magnificent.  From the old Southern charm of the white pillars on the front porch of the club house, members relax in rocking chairs, enjoy a cold drink with good company while gazing at the expansive view of the beautiful lake.  During season the restaurant serves a wide variety of delicious meals both indoors and outside.  Afterwards, it is not unusual to see groups of people surrounding the fire pit on the side of the lake while children play on the many activities available at the playground.  At the Fall and Winter events members relax in the newly renovated club house and in the "Brig", enjoying the warmth of the huge fireplace, big-screen TVs, comfy furniture and of course the friendship and interaction of other members. It is no wonder that club membership is often maintained through generations of the same families!

On either side of the Club you can see many unique floating cabins (yes, they really do float) that offer an enchanting way to "live on the water".  Other members maintain land-based cabins from which they often entertain friends and family late into the night.  Members who keep their boats in one of the four large docks quickly make new friends and are known to engage the other docks in friendly competition followed up by great dock parties.

If you sense a theme from all of this you are right!  "Fun at AYC" is truly memorable and is the reason that our members escape the workday grind to re-connect with friends and family in a very special way.  Membership in the AYC is surprisingly affordable and interested families are encouraged to contact Jim Pownall, the AYC Membership Chairman at 404-906-8149.  Regular and Social memberships are currently available.

If you just need a place on the lake to park your boat, the AYC may not be for you.  If you are looking for an experience that will positively change your life and that of your family, consider becoming part of our family!
