Perfectly positioned to overlook the 18th hole, the patio offers over-sized, upholstered furniture groupings, as well as high-tops and rounds, so guests can choose from a variety of seating options. It’s become the place where friends watch others finish a round of golf, meet up after a busy day, or cheer on the club’s robust bocce activity. The two regulation-size bocce courts are immediately adjacent to the patio and are made from crushed oyster shells, harkening back to the club’s original landowner, who made his money in the oyster trade. More than 400 club members are involved in league play, and competitions—for men, women, and juniors—run all week long.
Even when the club is open indoors, members prefer being on the patio to take advantage of the beautiful, temperate climate. Five firepits, four of which are movable, create natural gathering points. A popular semi-circular couch adds to the sense of community: There’s a standing reservation each week for a skins group that for years has filled this section of the patio with laughter and good-natured ribbing.
An adjacent circular patio—an extension of the main patio—is popular for weddings and other events. To avoid issues of privacy or noise, an ingenious curtain system can be activated to separate patio-goers from these events.
Other events that use the main patio include “Yappy Hour” for four-legged friends and their owners, karaoke nights, and other live entertainment echoing off the hillside. Children of members have taken over the patio for birdhouse painting, while adult members use the patio to “get an artistic buzz on”—pairing painting and wine.
When on the patio, Ruby Hill members can order off the regular menu, and beverage service flows from two portable bars. The covered areas feature built-in music and there are always plenty of games for kids of all ages to enjoy.
