Santaluz Sophisticated Golf Community
Although golf is not the only attraction to this spectacular 4,000 acre community just to the east of Rancho Santa Fe, it is indeed one of the major highlights. Built around a 250 acre golf course, the atmosphere here is one of quiet, sophisticated country living. With 1,000 of those 4,000 acres being dedicated to open spaces in order to preserve the beauty of the spectacular natural landscape, this community was named by the Building Industry Association Sales & Marketing Council as the “Best Master Planned Community in Southern California.”
If it is a community with amenities you are looking for, consider the fact that Santaluz has at its heart a 19,000 sq. ft. community building that houses a multi-purpose room, a gymnasium, a pool, a café and of course a workout facility. Then there is the massage room and outdoors you will find six tennis courts. The community center has both women’s and men’s lockers with lounges and private showers. Of course, what would a golf community be without a pro shop?
In the center of Santaluz you will find the well-manicured 250 acre golf course which has views of the Pacific Ocean and natural landscaping at its best. When it comes to being a member of an exclusive club, the 35,000 sq. ft. Santaluz Clubhouse restricts its membership to 400 golf memberships available to both residents and non-residents of Santaluz. Anyone who is a golf aficionado will appreciate that the graded fairways that utilize natural features for a variety of shots was designed by none other than Rees Jones.
Whether or not you are looking for a guard-gated golf community, you will appreciate the fact that the ratio is only one home per four acres. That is a density quite similar to the coveted Rancho Santa Fe and the properties are every bit as lovely. With only 948 home sites in the Master Plan, real estate in Santaluz is at a premium. Whether you want to call this spectacular community home or are looking for a home away from home to brush up on those shots, you can do no better than Santaluz.
