Tradition & History
Through the years the Boat Club has grown into a Fort Worth institution with a national reputation for sailing excellence. Since inception, FWBC members have proudly flown the Club burgee while leisurely boating and competitively racing worldwide.
FWBC was established in 1929 on the shores of Eagle Mountain Lake and is a treasured sanctuary used by its members to escape their everyday routine. Situated on a bluff overlooking the lake, the 13.5 acre grounds include the Clubhouse which captures views of the lake, large swimming pool, tiered patios and tiki bar. The Club provides exceptional boating, water recreation, dining and social experiences for our members and their families.
Multi-Million Dollar Clubhouse and Facilities Renovation Completed in 2022
FWBC offers completely redesigned dining, meeting and entertainment spaces for you and your guests to enjoy with a comfortable and nautical atmosphere. Our cuisines delight every palette from casual lakeside dining to elevated culinary experiences. Our culinary team can accommodate your every entertaining need - making your event effortless and unforgettable.
