The Bay Club Company Brings Sought-After Golf Amenities to Silicon Valley and San Diego with Acquisition of Two Country Clubs

Active lifestyle corporation announces plans to invest in its
California campuses, expanding modernized country club experiences for
its regional campuses

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#bayclubhappy–The Bay Club Company, a California-based active lifestyle corporation,
today announced the acquisition of two new properties: Fairbanks Ranch
Country Club in Rancho Santa Fe, CA; and The Golf Club at Boulder Ridge
in San Jose, CA, continuing the growth of The Bay Club Company’s
top-tier amenities. Both of the newly acquired properties complement the
current offerings in the Bay Club portfolio and complete the
four-quadrant playbook—focused on fitness, sports, hospitality, and
family—to create a modernized lifestyle membership.


“We’re excited to expand our golf footprint and give our members access
to two more preeminent California courses,” says The Bay Club Company
President and CEO Matthew Stevens. He adds: “Our plan is to evolve the
traditional country club membership into a more modern and flexible
offering that suits the needs of today’s dynamic families. The Bay Club
golf membership model eliminates food and beverage minimums and cart
fees, includes complimentary childcare and camp for the families. In
addition, we have robust programming ranging from summer concerts,
unique fitness classes and exciting sports tournaments.”

Built in 1983 and host to equestrian events in the 1984 Summer Olympics,
the 274-acre Fairbanks Ranch Country Club includes a 27-hole golf
course, eight tennis courts, and a clubhouse. It is The Bay Club
Company’s second property in its San Diego campus, along with Bay Club
Carmel Valley, located less than five miles south.

“The addition of Fairbanks Ranch Country Club, coupled with the recent
significant renovations of Bay Club Carmel Valley, creates an almost
unlimited assortment of amenities and signature benefits for our San
Diego campus membership,” says Bobbi Quick, The Bay Club Company
Executive Vice President of Operations.

The Golf Club at Boulder Ridge in San Jose, CA, features an 18-hole golf
course, driving range, clubhouse, and events pavilion—and joins Bay Club
Courtside, Santa Clara, Santana Row, and Cupertino in the Company’s
Silicon Valley Region.

“Our goal is to create spaces where the whole family can come to relax,
socialize, and play—offering everything from family barbeques with lawn
games, to time spent with colleagues and clients on the golf course, to
evenings playing bocce with friends followed by wine and cheese beside
the fire pits,” shares Lisa Graf, The Bay Club Company Executive Vice
President of Operations.

The acquisitions come a year after The Bay Club Company announced
another expansion of their Silicon Valley Region with the addition of
Bay Club Santana Row. Now with Fairbanks Ranch Country Club and Boulder
Ridge Country Club, The Bay Club Company operates 20 plus locations
across multiple California campuses. The Campuses are comprised of
multiple properties within an area that feature complementary amenities,
thereby providing its members a collection of offerings too vast to be
accessible at any single location. These properties include fitness
centers, athletic clubs, swim and tennis clubs, and country and golf
clubs.

Along with the acquisitions, The Bay Club Company is launching new
membership options and will be hosting open house and specialty program
events at both new properties throughout the summer. To learn more,
