The 18-hole, par 72 layout which incorporated in 1958, offers spectacular sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay and is located next to the 500-plus acre Arastradero Open Space Preserve. JMP worked closely with the membership, Course Superintendent Andrew Morgan, and key staff to create a Renovation Master Plan that addressed short and long-term interests for the private club. The club was faced with the immediate need to selectively remove diseased Monterey Pines and continue a program to reduce irrigation use, including turf reduction, in light of the on-going drought in the greater region. Construction on the front nine was completed in the Summer of 2021 and the back nine was completed in the Summer of 2022. The transformation of the course from a parkland, tree-lined style to a more ‘rustic’ and open character that is in greater harmony with the open space preserve was fully realized. The complete make-over included enlarged tees, sand-capped fairways and larger greens built to USGA standards. The updated strategic bunkering was personally painted in the field by Brian Costello.
