"The Hawthorns offers so much to families with kids of all ages! Whether it’s swimming, tennis, golf, various Kids Camps, Family Fall Festival, The 4th of July celebration and fireworks, Easter Bunny and Santa/Christmas activities and brunches, you can always find something fun to do at "The Club". An added bonus is the fantastic childcare offered weekday mornings as well as Friday and Saturday nights. Parents can enjoy some adult time dining, socializing, exercising, etc. knowing their kids are well taken care of. It's a win-win!"

"Where to begin, we love the club. When our children were younger, we utilized the kids' programs. Jacob loved the swim lessons and he was swimming much faster and with more success than his friends. I enjoyed being able to work out in the gym, for an hour each morning, knowing he was just down the hall being well cared for. As always Friday night in the player's lounge is crazy fun. The tennis mixers are a must, if you enjoy tennis on any level."

"I have been in the golf industry a long time and have been a part of over 200 collegiate golf tournaments in my playing and coaching career. I have never ever been more impressed with the staff and the members of any facility as I am with The Hawthorns Golf & Country Club. We were able to bring the 2009 Duramed Mid-American Conference Preview and the 2010 Mid-American Conference Women's Golf Championship to The Hawthorns and these two events were the best I have ever seen at the women's collegiate golf level. This was because of the support we received from The Hawthorns staff and the volunteers which were mostly Hawthorns members. Hosting an event 220 miles away from Toledo, Ohio and driving in a day before the event is never an easy task but I was sure we could have the best MAC Championship ever because of the people I was dealing with and that is exactly what we did. It takes a lot to impress me and The Hawthorns Golf & Country Club did that. We hope to be back in the near future."

"Thanks for making our golf outing a huge success. We received nothing but great comments about the outing from our clients. Our clients were extremely impressed with the organization of the event including the professional staff and how they responded quickly to the inclement weather. We were very proud of the event and would recommend The Hawthorns Golf & Country Club to any group that wants the best service at a first class facility.

“We joined The Hawthorns so that our family could enjoy the dining, pool and exercise facilities.  Our experience with the facilities and staff was so good - that six months later - we upgraded to the full golf membership. The Hawthorns is a fantastic family destination … and a great place for Mom & Dad to get away too.”

"I really can’t believe how much being a part of The Hawthorns Golf & Country Club has made my life happier. Our family is active in so many areas and enjoy having all the activities to participate in as a family, or as individuals. I’ve become most involved in the fitness offerings. I’ve made many new friends while staying in shape and having lots of fun. Being able to customize your own fitness program is a wonderful thing and that’s what it’s all about at The Hawthorns!"

"We love coming to The Hawthorns because everyone is so friendly and welcoming. Our daughters have a blast in the childcare room with the other kids and caregivers while we're either working out in the fitness center or enjoying an evening with adults in The Player's Lounge. As a family we like to grab a quick & very tasty dinner in the relaxed and comfortable Arbor Grill."
