This master facilities project, fully funded through capital dues, includes updates to the historic clubhouse—featuring an original structure built 140 years ago—construction of a new fitness center, renovations to the tennis pavilion and child care center, the addition of new bocce ball courts, installation of a new indoor golf simulator, and several other enhancements to food and beverage services. The property’s golf course recently underwent a $12 million upgrade.
Members of Diablo (Calif.) Country Club have approved a comprehensive renovation, update and enhancement effort that will address all areas of the club’s campus.
The $22 million project, fully funded through capital dues, includes updates to the historic clubhouse—featuring an original structure built 140 years ago—construction of a new fitness center, renovations to the tennis pavilion and child care center, the addition of new bocce ball courts, installation of a new indoor golf simulator, and several other enhancements to the food and beverage services with an expansion and update to the historic Red Horse Tavern, addition of the new Diablo Pub, and renovations to the main kitchen that focus on improved productivity, efficiency, and more culinary amenities.
“As members and owners of Diablo Country Club, we all take great pride in what has been accomplished so far, and what lies ahead in our future as these projects come to fruition,” said Tim Pauling, President of Diablo CC. “We appreciate the larger Diablo community’s continued support, and we look forward to providing updates as we progress.”
This master facilities project follows a recent $12 million golf course renovation.
Diablo’s comprehensive $34 million capital improvement project means that “every part of our club campus will be touched as part of these enhancements,” said Bruce Pruitt, Diablo CC’s General Manager & COO.
The November approval means work on the second phase will commence almost immediately because Diablo CC leaders proceeded with necessary planning in anticipation of the measure passing.
The club’s golf course, swimming pool and tennis courts will be available to members and guests during project construction. Culinary services will continue through innovations including “Red Horse Too,” a portable kitchen on wheels, “DiabloDash”—a food delivery service available through the Diablo CC app—and expanded service at the existing Snack Shack. Temporary bocce ball courts will also be set up during the renovation effort.
The full Master Facilities Project is anticipated to be completed in early 2024.
“The thoughtful enhancements and updates to our historic clubhouse, renovations to our dining areas, the addition of new facilities, and other touches mean Diablo will continue to be a complete, casually refined lifestyle experience for the entire family,” Pruitt stated. “Adding in the two recent recognitions of our golf course enhancement is just a preview of the quality you can expect from these new Diablo amenities.”
These updates and renovations will also parallel a multi-million-dollar recycled water project undertaken by club leadership. An initial engineering and design research study will determine the parameters, budget and timeline for construction of a system that will provide Diablo CC with a sustainable water system for its golf course irrigation.
