Whether you’re artistic or athletic, a gardener or a reader – activities are abound at The Governor’s Land.

An active community, there are numerous clubs to cultivate your interests and provide opportunities to socialize. Enticing amenities like our marina, tennis courts, pools, bocce courts, fitness center and walking trails make us much more than a golf community. It’s a great place to raise a family.

The tennis facilities are terrific. With an introduction by our pro to the drop-in program, I was quickly playing tennis several times a week.

We’re living in a community that has it all.

The Bottkes

Tennis & Pickleball

Have fun on the courts in an atmosphere of fellowship. Superb facilities include six clay and two hard tennis courts as well as six pickleball courts. Our full-time tennis pro, Mike Prokopik, offers a wide variety of lessons, clinics, tournaments, summer camps, and drop-ins for men, women and children.


Members enjoy the use of two six-lane 25-meter outdoor seasonal pools, each with a wading pool for toddlers. The Park East Pool is open for recreational swimming. It is also home to Governor’s Land Typhoons Swim team, a youth competitive team who are members of Virginia Peninsula Swimming Union (VPSU). The Park West Pool is a popular gathering place for recreational swimming. Water fitness, a water aerobics program, meets daily during the summer.

Private Beach

The beach is open year-round and is available for use by all Governor’s Land residents as well as non-resident members of the Two Rivers Country Club Yacht Club. You’ll find families enjoying a swim, teens playing volleyball and summer cook-outs with built-in grills available.

Fitness Center

Work out with top-of-the-line treadmills, elliptical trainers, stationary and recumbent bikes, as well as a complete line of resistance and weight machines. Our fully equipped fitness center hums with activity from dawn to late evening.

Walking Trails

Governor’s Land has ten miles of fitness trails that wind through our 200-acre Nature Preserve along the banks of the James River, as well as paved paths throughout our community.

Kids Programs

Two Rivers Country Club manages a busy schedule of activities for children of all ages. Or kids can have a pick-up game of basketball or soccer. Youngsters enjoy tennis and golf camps or arts and crafts fun camp. There are also special activities such as beach parties, poolside parties or teen get-togethers. Many members have school age children living at home, while others have grandchildren who love to visit.
