About Old Willow
Old Willow was founded in 1959 by Winnetka families who were looking for a safe, special summer location where they could unwind with their families and friends. Since then, generations of families from around the North Shore have spent their summers poolside or on the courts at OWC.
Members enjoy tennis on nine Har-Tru surface courts - two being Hydro-courts with advanced technology hydration systems. We offer league play for men and women, lessons for all levels, social tennis events and club championships and a great kids program including lessons and intra-club competition. Our tennis professionals are among the best in the Chicago area, and return year after year to our program.
Our pool is a 25-yard, 5-lane gem. The pool is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, with some extra days available weather permitting. We offer swim lessons, swim team, open swim, open diving, dive team, water polo team, lap swimming and more! We have dedicated pool time for adults - as well as toy time for noodles, boats and Super Soakers!
One of the unique (and favorite) aspects of summers at OWC is bringing your own food and drinks and enjoying sunset dinners on the deck. Grills are available for member use at any time. It can be a small, intimate dinner, or a multi-family pot luck. It's always a good time at Old Willow.
