Little Traverse Bay Beach
Relaxing and playing on a beautiful white sand beach bordering the clear blue waters of Lake Michigan is a favorite activity for Club members. L’Arbre Croche is blessed with the best beach in Little Traverse Bay. Surrounded by rolling dunes, our private beach is out the front door for many of our homeowners and an easy walk from all residences.
Camp is held three times a week and provides children with activities ranging from songs and games, to arts and crafts. Kids’ Camp is held under the tent adjacent to the maintenance area during July and part of August. Beverages and snacks are provided for the children.
Nestled in the center of the club's campus are our pool, saunas, Tennis Pro Shop, and 4 of our 8 tennis courts. Men’s and Women’s Locker Rooms service these areas and include changing areas, changing tables, showers, and bathroom facilities.
Summer is the height of activity for this area. Our pool, sauna, and locker rooms are open from 8:00 to 9:00 pm during the high season of the summer (July 1 through Labor Day weekend), and on weekdays from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm during the shoulder seasons from Memorial Day to July 1 and from Labor Day through mid-September.
The pool is opened during the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays. The Pool/Sauna areas are also open every weekend in January, and February from 4 pm to 8:00 pm.
The Club has a very active tennis program with casual and structured play available for members and guests of all playing levels. We are blessed to have 4 fine clay courts and 4 True Turf courts. Our tennis program is supported by a Club Pro who is with us from late June through late August. A small Pro Shop is adjacent to the Club's Pool and Sauna area. The Shop provides tennis incidentals and club wear.
