Riverchase Country Club
The Riverchase Country Club is a 192-acre private golf club located at 2000 Club Road, off Riverchase Parkway West and near the confluences of Patton Creek and Dodd Branch with the Cahaba River. It was developed by the Harbert Corporation as part of the Riverchase planned development. John Cargill is the club's general manager, and John Carney is the golf pro.
The club's 6,842-yard 18-hole golf course was designed by Joe Lee and opened for play in 1975. The clubhouse and other amentias opened in 1976.
The club's course has hosted the SEC Women's Golf Championship, the Alabama State Amateur Golf Championship, the Alabama State Four-Ball Championship, and the Charley Boswell Celebrity Golf Classic.
In addition to golf, the club offers facilities for racquet sports, a swimming pool, a 2,000 square-foot fitness center, and a dining room and banquet facilities.
The club's swimming pool area was fully renovated in 2019. In 2021 management of the Riverchase Country Club was contracted to ClubLife Management of Dallas, Texas.
The club property was annexed into Hoover in 2023 as part of a negotiated deal for the city to contribute 95% of the $3 million cost of making repairs to the privately-owned Lake Forest Circle and its associated dam, which is necessary to prevent future damage to a city-owned sanitary sewer line which runs below the street.
In March 2023 Riverchase Country Club was acquired by Heritage Golf Group of Herndon, Virginia. The buyers plan to move ahead with a major updating of the golf course, followed by renovations to the 35,000 square-foot clubhouse.
