Cavalier Golf & Yacht Club Pool Umbrellas

Virginia Beach club gets new shade for pool

Situated in the prestigious Virginia Beach, Virginia, The Cavalier Golf & Yacht Club is an exceptional venue for members to gather, relax and enjoy the amenities. Members can tie up at the dock, head inside for a beverage or, of course, hit the green.

Celebrate, connect and enjoy

Cavalier Golf & Yacht Club features one of only 12 legendary Charles Bank-designed courses in the world.  The 6,175-yard, par 69 course sits in the beautiful Birdneck Point neighborhood of Virginia Beach. 

Umbrellas for pool improving outcomes at clubs

The swimming pool facilities at Cavalier Golf and Yacht Club were underutilized by members. Seeking to revamp the area and make it more attractive to families, swimmers, and club members, the facilities team reached out to Shadowspec Umbrellas for assistance.

The traditional setting and aesthetic of the club drove us down the middle of the fairway, as per usual, towards oyster canopies on 8’ umbrellas for pools. Cantilever pool umbrellas were chosen for their ability to preserve views, ideal for the Cavalier Golf & Yacht Club's pool area where sightlines were a priority. This design choice ensures an airy, unobstructed environment where members can unwind.

The Shadowspec Serenity™ is easy-to-use and deploys in 5 seconds. This feature is indispensable for club staff, allowing them to streamline setup and dedicate more time to serving members.

Cavalier's pool area was transformed with the introduction of cantilever umbrellas in the pool area. 

Pool umbrellas for club

Find your place in the sun

If you’re in charge of facilities at a country club, or golf club here are a few ideas to implement across your club to achieve the same success as the Cavalier Golf and Yacht Club. 

New Loungers

Poolside loungers are the quintessential poolside furniture piece. Careful, though, when you update your loungers, you may need to implement a booking system, they’ll be that popular! 

Pool Umbrellas

Long days in the sun require shade to protect your members from skin damage. As Cavalier learnt, cantilever pool umbrellas are perfect poolside partners and the mast can be installed offset from the frame and canopy providing unobstructed views of your pool area. The Shadowspec Serenity Umbrella is exceptional shade for pool areas.  

Bar Carts

We’ve seen great success in bar carts. Whether it's a converted golf cart or, something more, a “pushable cart”. impress your members by bringing the refreshments to them. We’ve seen a few clever ways bar carts can be implemented and we encourage you to investigate this as a way to improve member satisfaction at your club. Bar carts are a sure-fire way to improve connections and grow a new, younger membership base.


Outdoor terraces can be upgraded with a “hole-in-the-wall” style bistro where your members can enjoy a relaxing, outdoor meal in the fresh air. It’s no secret that humans enjoy being outdoors and dining is no exception. Upgrading your terrace or patio to include an easy-access bistro will transform your club and extend your seasons. Perhaps our favorite addition we’ve seen over recent years is semi-permanent food trucks as a point of difference to golf and country clubs across the world.

Pool umbrellas for Country Clubs & Golf Clubs

With a clever use of shade, you can create a memorable experience that others in the industry won’t be able to match. Being knowledgeable and implementing the latest furniture designs can help clubs renovate their clubs, improve member satisfaction and grow your membership base. 

If you’d like to upgrade your pool area with patio umbrellas, Shadowspec’s team are here to help.
