Picture a gathering place that takes you out of the day-to-day monotony and immerses you in a connection to something bigger – that is The Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe. Curated events bring Members together, creating a shared sense of purpose and belonging.
Engagement is a two-way street. For us here at The Bridges, events such as the Oldie Newbie Golf Tournament offer friendly competition and inclusion for everyone. We pair tenured Members with new Members in a best-ball format followed by trivia, specialty cocktails, and live music. By combining multiple generations, new Members are more likely to build lasting friendships and engage more regularly in Club activities.
Weaving around the Tuscan-inspired clubhouse are vineyards and orchards that not only provide a stunning view but inspire Members to immerse themselves into the wine culture. Sommelier Mark Valin hosts weekly wine tastings that focus on a specific region or winery, as well as monthly classes emphasizing everything from investment-grade fine wine to comparisons of your favorite varietals such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Find your bearing with a curated wine experience that you will not find anywhere else.
Whether you are a wine aficionado or just looking for a social experience, The Bridges wine program provides the opportunity to learn about every aspect of wine in a gradual and fun manner with a suite of programs and offerings. If you want to explore new wineries and experience exciting culinary destinations, or simply taste something new, Mark can help you navigate the endless sea of wine. Find your bearing with a curated experience that you will not find anywhere else.

What Our Members Think:
"The Member bond at The Bridges is unlike any other club! When we moved to the area, we didn’t know a soul. We were continually told by people we would cross paths with that The Bridges was the club to join. From the moment we joined as Members, we knew we were home! Everyone from the Members to the staff is so warm and welcoming and really create a culture like no other.”
