Secluded, lavish, and refined, the resort-style living found at Santaluz makes it easily one of San Diego's most coveted neighborhoods—and it’s also home to one of the most renowned country clubs in Southern California, The Santaluz Club. Famous for its 18-hole championship golf course, sprawling clubhouse (featuring sublime coastal and valley views), and top-notch fitness center, membership at the venerable Santaluz Club is second to none.
Tucked away just west of Black Mountain Open Space Park, Santaluz offers the comfort of rural inland living paired with the convenience, accessibility, and spectacular views of coastal property. Houses in Santaluz are built in several alluring styles, including Provence, Andalusia, and Tuscan-inspired farmhouses, as well as classic adobe, Santa Barbara, or Southern California ranch. Also, almost all homes in Santaluz have amazing views of the award-winning golf course, not to mention the surrounding mountains and valleys, all with the security of 24/7 guards and gated entrances. You aren’t far from the action, either! It’s just a short drive to miles of stunning coastal hiking at Torrey Pines and a couple of miles to superb beachside cuisine & shopping in Del Mar. But you also have over 2,300 square acres of hiking and biking in your backyard, at Black Mountain Open Space Park.
The Santaluz Club is one of the prime draws to home ownership in Santaluz, of course. Designed to imitate a Southern California ranch-style home, this 35,000-square-foot clubhouse is perched above the club’s 300-acre golf course. And the amenities you can enjoy here… well, it’s safe to say they’re among the best of any gated community that San Diego has to offer. Whether you’re a busy working professional, looking to raise a family, or settling down for retirement, you’ll find an active, upscale lifestyle in Santaluz.
The Santaluz Club is most well-known for its championship course, designed by legendary course architect Rees Jones. Jones is a former Golf World “Architect of the Year” and is regularly ranked by Golf Digest in the “Top 5” present-day course architects. They even dubbed him the “US Open Doctor.”
But the amenities at the Club go far beyond golf. The massive 35,000 square-foot clubhouse, with an additional 5,000 square feet of outdoor patio, is home to spa villas, top-end cuisine, and a spacious Mexican and Spanish colonial ranch-style interior. Inside, you’ll find an award-winning golf pro shop, luxurious locker rooms with steam and sauna rooms, and even a whirlpool. In addition to an expansive lap pool, the Club also has six lighted tennis courts and two pickleball courts, along with a vast array of tennis programs, from private lessons to club tournaments, summer camps for kids, and more. The Fitness Center offers skilled personal trainers in addition to a vast array of aerobic and anaerobic equipment and puts on everything from small group training to fitness classes and private, personalized training designed to help you achieve your goals.
Perhaps most important is that The Santaluz Club truly aims to foster a young, vibrant, and family-friendly environment. The club’s website states that “activities and amenities for the entire family are … the focal point of The Santaluz Club.” On that note, the Club hosts an exciting year-round social calendar, from socials to wine festivals, holiday parties, concerts, and more. “Camp Santaluz,” the Club’s kids camp, provides numerous activities as well, including movie nights, game nights, and summer camps.
A home in Santaluz allows access to spectacular education. Public school students attend the highly-ranked Willow Grove Elementary, Black Mountain Middle, and Del Norte High School, and there are many private schools nearby, too, including Cathedral Catholic High, Horizon Prep, Cal Coast Academy, Fusion Academy, Diegueno Country School, San Diego Jewish Academy, and Santa Fe Christian School.
