The Club at Castlewood

  • The Club at Castlewood

Perched on the same spot and designed in a similar but more contemporary interpretation of the original clubhouse—the Hacienda del Pozo de Verona—The Club at Castlewood has old roots dating back to nearly 100 years ago.

Designed by Julia Morgan, this former estate of George and Phoebe Hearst burned down in 1969. The extensive renovation of the 50-year-old golf clubhouse built in 1971, which had never seen significant updates, sought to preserve the historical style of the elevation with minimal exterior modifications, while extensively renovating the interiors to modernize and enhance function. The entry plaza at the main entry tower was renovated to create a new social area with new exterior doors that allow direct access from the terrace to the adjacent lounge space, as well as the addition of a covered roof extension that wraps around the front of the building. Groups renting the banquet facilities now enter through the refurbished patio adjacent the banquet room.

Members enjoy the heart of the club, the bar, dining room, patio, and lounge foyer, which have been transformed from segregated spaces lacking natural light to a series of open, naturally lit spaces visually connected by replacing walls with floor-to-ceiling glass that contain large, expansive openings. Rich coppers, creams and saturated blues play with the depths of the walnut wood grain ceilings for a soft natural, inviting atmosphere. The open floorplan allows for flexible seating arrangements and gathering spaces to bring the members together. The renovation also established a large gym on the southern second floor in place of the spacious member's grill. The brighter lower level adds a fun vibrant kids club area as well as updates to both the men’s and women’s lounge and locker rooms.
