First hand! – Lori,
I am so glad that you addressed the situation with that "unruly" woman. I was there and did not appreciate her soliciting a petition nor did I appreciate her outburst and rude comments toward the club staff. She should be ashamed of herself as woman as well as a mother. Thank you to the club director, who showed a lot of self control and was a gentleman even though he was being provoked.
I think it would be helpful to all of us members to read the club policies and educate ourselves on how to handle complaints.
An Excellent Facility! Don't Believe Trash Talk – Granite Falls Swim & Athletic Club is an asset to Rolesville's charm, diversity, and recreational resources pushing Rolesville's reputation up up UP! My family has enjoyed this club since day 1. With its state-of-the art workout equipment, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, personable and responsible lifeguards, fitness programs, and outstanding staff/management, this facility can't be beat.
Since opening day, I have only heard of one complaint against Granite Falls. This complaint stemmed from a female who regularly used the club lifeguards to babysit her undisciplined children. The poor lifeguards were tormented daily by these children. Luckily these lifeguards got their much deserved relief when the female attempted to initiate an unlawful petition in reference to an unfortunate (unavoidable) mishap with another member's child in the pool. Management politely asked the woman to stop the petition, but without success. Other club members began complaining to management about "this unruly woman disturbing families at the pool as she pushed her petition around". Begrudgingly, the management had no choice but to have the police escort the woman off the premises. Now this awesome management team is subject to public ridicule because they did the right thing, they "managed" their pool to make their clients safe and happy.
I would recommend Granite Falls Swim & Athletic Club to everyone of every age, race, and gender. I can't wait to go back!
Poorly Managed, Crowded, and Going Down Hill FAST – Imagine going with your family for a nice day at the pool and finding it closed YET AGAIN because someone deficated in the pool!! Ever hear of vinyl cover pants for babies and toddlers?!! The management at this club definitely HAS heard of them because we and about a hundred other members asked them repeatedly to make them a requirement for parents of young children to put on their kids -- they ignored us and even got angry at us for asking. Finally, after NINE pool closings for feces in the water in just the first ten weeks of this season, we discontinued our membership. Other clubs in the area require the vinal pants for little kids and have had ZERO pool closings so far this year. In addition to the unsanitary pool policies, the club is crowded, poorly maintained, and getting dingy even though it has been open less than 1-1/2 years.
Save your money and your weekend plans -- join another club that doesn't have such an increasingly bad track record.
Outstanding value & a Great Family Atmosphere! – I am a member and I joined GFS&C after belonging to O2 and Gold's. GFS&C is a better family atmosphere and a better value by far for your money. The workout area is very open and air conditioned and all the equipment brand new. There is never a wait either to use the stairclimbers, treadmills, weights, etc.
The indoor lap pool is heated year-round and the outdoor pools are open so long as there is a demand! The kids love the aqua-play area and the slides. The adults like the outdoor pool area too (the beer & wine bars help!)
Overall, I love this place and think it is a great value. BTW...I am a paying member and I am not affiliated with the club in any way.
Getting worst. Don't move there. Mistake of your life! – Granite Falls getting worst. The Swim & Athletic club is poorly maintain. One of employee told us there rodents problem. We cancel our membership just after 3 months. Wipe the sweats off the benches before using any of their equipments cause no one is sanitizing place. The builder are in trouble financially. Please see article from N&O. Promise Homes in bankruptcy; Perry hits snags.
It will get worst for this builder and management of this place...
