A Seaside Community in East Falmouth, Cape Cod Massachusetts


Great Harbors is an active community which sponsors an array of year round events.  Our most active season is the summer when families enjoy a multitude of activities, such as swimming, tennis, boating.  The Annual Barbecue, Wine Tasting and Golf Tournaments are among the favorites for adults.  You may check the calendar section of this website or select one of the events below for more information.


The Mission of the Great Harbors Women’s Club is to protect and promote the health, safety, environment and well-being of the Great Harbors community and all of its residents.

The Great Harbors Women’s Club (GHWC) meets monthly from September through June on the third Tuesday of the month, with the exception of December. Meetings are held at the clubhouse and light refreshments are served. The meeting includes community updates from the President, a treasurer’s report, neighborhood watch update, information from the outreach representative and occasionally a guest speaker or we enjoy lunch at a local restaurant.

In addition to our meetings, the GHWC plays a major role in creating year round activities for our residents such as Mah Jongg, Yoga, Ladies Cards and the Great Harbors Book Club and oversees the planning of the December Holiday Brunch for the community. The Women’s Club has also developed an Emergency Preparedness Plan for our community.

Among the goals of the Great Harbors Women’s Club is the caring for our neighbors through activities such checking on the elderly and those living alone, providing rides to doctors and other appointments for our neighbors who need assistance, as well as providing a Safe Haven at the Club House during emergencies and stocking the Club House to be able to respond to those needs. In addition, the GHWC plans and executes events to enhance the social and intellectual life of residents, particularly in the winter when the population of the community diminishes considerably. Despite its name, the activities of the GHWC are not for women only but are designed to encompass the entire community.

Many of our members not only volunteer their time for Great Harbors but also within the Falmouth Community. Organizations such as the Falmouth Service Center, Neighborhood Falmouth, Falmouth Senior Center, Falmouth Newcomers Group, local churches, schools and nursing homes are among the focus of our residents.

Our meetings are open to all women in Great Harbors and there is a nominal charge of $10 per year to cover necessities.

If you are new to our community, please join us.
