History

NorthRiver Yacht Club was envisioned and created in 1978 by Mr. Jack Warner, legendary art collector, philanthropist and businessman.

The NorthRiver Championship Golf Course was originally designed by legendary professional golfer, Gary Player in 1978 then redesigned in 1997 and 2015 by well-known and admired golf course architect, Bob Cupp.  The golf course is well-known across the Southeast for being a great golf course for play-ability and course conditions. In addition to golf, members and their invited guests enjoy an active lifestyle with a full fitness center, two pools, 76 slip boat marina on Lake Tuscaloosa, 11 professionally maintained and operated tennis courts with teams, clinics and active junior programs, plus an very full and varied social calendar of events with two clubhouses for all to enjoy.

Honours Golf began managing NorthRiver in September of 2012 and in November 2015, Honours Golf was purchased by Troon Golf. Immediately, NorthRiver Yacht Club became part of Troon’s elite brand of private clubs known as, Troon Privé.  As a benefit of being one of 75 elite private clubs in the Troon Privé Collection, the Full Resident golf members of NRYC earned the benefit of being able to play for the Privé cart fee rate at over 75 private clubs across the world.  Troon became the official owner of NorthRiver Yacht Club and all that the club offers, on March 31, 2017.

NorthRiver’s rich history abounds from every building and room throughout the Club!  We invite you to learn more about private club membership at NorthRiver. For more information, please contact the Membership Office, 205-343-4565.
