THE JACK WARNER RETREAT is located in the peaceful wooded cliffs, overlooking beautiful Lake Tuscaloosa. Only 12 miles North of downtown Tuscaloosa and the bustling University of Alabama Campus, visitors to NorthRiver are immediately transported into another world filled with rolling hills, outdoor sculpture, and oriental architecture.
The residential area known as “North River” surrounds the prestigious NorthRiver Yacht Club, now owned by Troon. Both the Club and the 500 lot residential area were conceived and developed by Jack Warner, CEO of Gulf States Paper Corporation, in the early 1970’s following the development of beautiful Lake Tusscaloosa. He began building the Club on the banks of the Lake, first with the Captain’s Cabin and its Marina, then adding the palacial NorthRiver Yacht Club with it’s olympic sized swimming pool, a 16-court tennis pavllion and and a Gary Player designed 18-hole golf course. THE JACK WARNER RETREAT is the heart of NorthRiver, allowing guests worldwide to experience the beauty created by the late visionary, Jack Warner.
