Social Clubs


Clubs and social groups are the easiest way to connect with your neighbors and explore your interests. In fact, there are currently more than 60 resident-created clubs welcoming new members, from the Woodside Trail Group, to the Investment Club, to the Gardening Club, and much, much more. Take a look below for some of the most popular clubs within our community, and be sure to join in on a club event during your Adventure Awaits package!

“It was important to us to have people to interact with. We have a lot to be thankful for that The Reserve Club offers us.”
– Ron J.



    The Woodside Automotive Group is a collection of 30 car and motorcycle enthusiasts who call Woodside home. This informal organization meets on a monthly basis at various local venues to enjoy their automotive passion, organizes events of their own, and stays actively involved in many other social groups within Woodside. If you own a vintage restored car, car that is actively being restored, hot rod, or sports car, this is the group for you! To learn more about this organization or take a look at some of their monthly newsletters, visit their website here.


    You may work a 9-5 job, you may be retired, but odds are, if you’re a Woodside resident, you still countdown each week to Friday night. Pub Club is a special weekly event hosted at The Reserve Club whose aim is to bring friends together, both old and new, over drinks, music and conversation. Be sure to build a Friday into your Adventure Awaits package if you’re able- Pub Club is by far the easiest way to put to rest any fears that you’d have trouble making lifelong friends at Woodside!


    Are you looking to make a difference? You’re not alone. The Women of Woodside is a not-for-profit 501(c)4 organization comprised of dedicated ladies bonding together for social and community service activities. During the year, you can find them organizing volunteer efforts for charities like American Red Cross, Golden Harvest Food Bank, and Habitat for Humanity, or providing services directly to Woodside residents in need, like running errands, providing transportation, and delivering meals. (Their efforts in 2015 alone raised $101,000 in funds, supplies and donations that went back to our local community!) These ladies are also very actively involved in supporting resident group activities throughout the year, and their events are some of the most highly anticipated each year. Now in their 27th year, they have organized nine book clubs, a couples’ Bridge group, an active Singles Group, a Garden Club, and an Out-to-Lunch Bunch to bring members together.


    Because Woodside is immersed in scenic woodlands, and enjoys a climate that allows us to spend all year outside, we’re a “natural fit” for those that love hiking and being outdoors. The Woodside Trail Group, a 75-member club created in 2008 by Woodside residents, is an organization that has taken full advantage of those conditions. They not only hike the nearly 20 miles of trails within the Woodside system, they also organize hikes throughout Hitchcock Woods (one of the country’s largest urban nature preserves located in downtown Aiken) and numerous other nearby trails and woodlands as well.


    Aiken has a long growing season, fertile soil, and a mild climate, and it comes as no surprise that those with a love of gardening enjoy the wide selection of plants that thrive here. The Gardening Club, made of both men and women, is one such group of individuals, and you can find them either beautifying our community garden, or attending lectures held by area Master Gardeners at The Reserve Club. We give these folks two (green) thumbs up!


    Exercise your gray matter with fellow enthusiasts over a game of mah jongg, the classic tile finding game. Never played? No worries! This casual club is suited for beginners, novices and expert level players, and is always open to new members.


    Expand your social circle and connect with fellow singles through Woodside’s Singles’ Club. This club, not to be confused with a dating service, is designed to bring individuals that share similar circumstances and interests together for well-planned events and adventures. While romance may blossom, enjoy developing lifelong friendships without the pressure of set ups or matchmaking.


    For those that love retreating into a good book, the book club is for you. Not only will you enjoy the comforts of losing yourself in a book in the comfort of your own home, but you’ll also be surrounded by like-minded people at club meetings to discuss your thoughts on the book, the themes you found, and your opinion of the material. This club meets in homes, at The Reserve Club, and at cafes over coffee and delicious meals, giving you experiences that extend far beyond the pages of the book you’re reading.
