…when our private sanctuary debuts near the turn of a previous century. In the early 1900s Diablo’s vision is big, and soon beloved for preserving a small-town ideal. The structures – grand East Coast-style reminders of 19th ranchland and racetrack – are beacons of a great escape for the greater Bay Area. The course, designed by future legends, plays in a league of its own with a backdrop like none other.
In a retrofit for the ages, history repeats itself now. A new $22 million renovation and enhancement is underway to update and improve upon a range of amenities that will enrich this celebrated experience for generations. A hundred years young and counting, the Diablo ideal renews itself next in three phases.
A familiar stage for the next golden age. On the heels of an award-winning renovation, from the 1st tee to the iconic fairway oak on 18, Diablo’s weaving route has never played more seamless, sustainable, and dramatic. Reshaped, laser-leveled tees give way to widened fairways that invite varied approach strategies. New short-cut chipping areas unlock short game techniques, while greens resized to opening day let players trace the lines of legends. Completely rebuilt bunkers make for great escapes, while native tree plantings invite a deeper immersion into the landscape.
Adding refinement & culinary amenities. Members and guests enjoy innovations including full-meal service at the Jack Neville Snack Shack, “Willie’s Place”—our new portable kitchen on wheels—and special off-campus brunch and lunch service as we update our classically-designed and always-breathtaking Clubhouse. DCC’s culinary offerings and venues are being enhanced with an expansion and update to our historic Red Horse Tavern and addition of a new Diablo Pub. A renovated main kitchen adds productivity, fresh energy and more culinary amenities to our casually refined dining room.
Resort-style amenities are underway. Members can still enjoy onsite group classes as well as complimentary off-campus fitness memberships as we build a state of the art Fitness Center. Our ongoing racquet sports programs will benefit from a new Tennis Pavilion and Childcare Center, new Bocce Ball courts will be added and a new indoor Golf Simulator installed – all of these updates and more ensuring DCC will be THE place to gather for many years to come as part of Diablo’s tradition of inspired innovation.
