Work will begin in 2019 on the 11,500-sq. ft. facility at the Westlake Village, Calif. property, which will include a fitness facility, fitness classroom, child care, locker rooms, massage rooms, tennis retail shop, indoor and outdoor dining, a five-lane lap pool, a jacuzzi and a kids’ pool.
The membership of North Ranch Country Club (NRCC) in Westlake Village, Calif. has voted to approve a new 11,500-sq. ft. Athletic Center. Work on the new facility will begin in 2019.
The new Athletic Center complex will include a fitness facility, fitness classroom, child care, locker rooms, massage rooms, tennis retail shop, and indoor and outdoor dining. The facility will also include a five-lane lap pool, a jacuzzi and a kids’ pool.
Both Equity and Associate members of North Ranch will have access to the new facility.
“The newly approved NRCC Athletic Center will bring future change, opportunity and energy into the North Ranch Community,” said Doug Kane, President of the club’s Board of Directors.“With one of the prime locations in Westlake Village, centered around an exceptional 27-hole golf course, North Ranch Country Club holds a distinct advantage over many other private clubs in the area, making it a prime location to add this new sports facility.”
“While many country clubs are struggling, North Ranch Country Club is thriving with its active and friendly membership,” Kane continued. “The club has recognized the need to continually evaluate what the consumer requires in additional amenities and family-centric activities.
“Our staff is already planning and preparing for the new amenities, events and services we will be able to offer with this facility to members of all ages and interests,” Kane said. “With the overwhelmingly approval of our membership, our staff is excited to offer something new for our members.”
NRCC traces its history to the purchase of the 12,000-acre Albertson Ranch by the American Steamship Club in 1963. The land on which the club now sits was once used as a Hollywood film set for Western scenes for productions including “Gunsmoke,” and also for such diverse films as “Buck Rogers” and “Tarzan.”
The club’s golf course, designed in 1976 by Ted Robinson, consists of three distinct nine-hole layouts, as the Valley, Oaks and Lakes courses.
The club itself was purchased by members from Prudential Insurance in 1990.
