A Perfect Day at California’s #1 Country Club

Awaken in your master suite to the sound of the wind playing in the palm trees, and the soft light peaking over the red mountains flooding your room. Meet with your personal trainer for a revitalizing workout, followed by a plunge in your pool, to the breathtaking backdrop or Mt Eisenhower. Finish with a calming session in your sauna or steam room, letting the weight of the world fall away from you.

Your children and au-pair, or your visiting guests, have had a relaxing morning of their own in the West wing of the house, meandering in the private gardens and living rooms. Join together for breakfast al-fresco on one of the many patios, where your senses are invigorated by the crisp desert air.

As the gorgeous winter day continues to warm, head to the heart of The Vintage Club to experience California’s number one country club, named 2015’s “Best New Re­Design” by Golf Digest. Hone your serve on one of the 13 professional grade tennis courts, or delight in a round of golf on either the Desert or Mountain course. Experience a formal lunch at the Lakeview Grill to discover the culinary stylings of Executive Chef Manfred Bräuer.

Next is your afternoon spa treatment wherein a massage therapist comes to work away your tension poolside in the privacy of your own home. Let the vibrant colors of the native cacti and the feel of the breeze transcend you to an elevated level of peace and serenity.

After a day of exertion, it is time for an evening of entertaining. Your culinary team and wait staff is readying your five-course meal, pairing each phase of the meal perfectly with a wine from your personal collection. Welcome guests in the formal living room to an aperitif, and while the ladies lounge by the fireplace, allow the gentlemen to take in the rarely-seen climate-controlled garage, the perfect showcase for any car or motorcycle enthusiast.

When dinner is ready, mosey to the formal dining room to be served by your staff, enriched by the dancing flames from the fire pit and soft-playing music. When your guests have left, finish your evening with a moonlight swim under the desert stars, relishing in the hours behind you, as you realize that your dream oasis has become a reality.
