As local realtors and residents, we’ve had the privilege of helping people find their dream homes in this picturesque San Ramon Valley region, and one of the many perks of living here is the opportunity to join exclusive country clubs. I’m excited to guide you through some of the most prestigious country clubs in the Danville, Alamo and San Ramon areas, providing an insight into the amenities, lifestyle, and membership opportunities they offer.
Blackhawk Country Club
The Blackhawk Country Club, located in the exclusive Blackhawk neighborhood, is an epitome of luxury living in Danville. Blackhawk Ranch was transformed into today’s magnificent neighborhood back in 1979 and sits adjacent to expansive open space, offering residents a serene backdrop. Members at Blackhawk enjoy life in a secure and gated community, sprawling estates with luxurious homes, access to two 18-hole golf courses, a 10,000 sq. ft. fitness and wellness complex, a family-friendly 10-lane swimming pool, 2 tennis facilities (featuring 18 courts!), a large lakeside clubhouse and world-class dining options. The lush surroundings and the immaculate fairways make this country club a golfer’s paradise. The community vibe here is palpable, making it an ideal place for families. Black Hawk Country Club is truly the premier full-service club in the East Bay.
Diablo Country Club
Diablo Country Club is another jewel in the crown of Danville’s exclusive country clubs. This historic club has an incredible history rooted in 1912 when a charismatic entrepreneur transformed a sprawling ranch into a world-class retreat that many in old Hollywood came to enjoy. Diablo Country Club offers not only a gorgeous 18-hole golf course but also a fitness center, swimming pool, and tennis courts. The elegant and soon-to-be renovated clubhouse provides a stunning venue for private events and offers fine dining, social events such as bocce ball, pickleball, outdoor movies & so much more! No private gates in this village. Instead, you will find a vibrant, small-town spirit, where neighbors get together for coffee strolls, evening wine walk and run-ins at the tiny Post Office, exclusively serving the 94528 zip code. Charmed, to be sure!
Crow Canyon Country Club
Crow Canyon Country Club is another sought-after destination for those looking for a relaxed lifestyle. This gated community includes a beautiful golf course, tennis courts, a fitness center, and multiple complex pools for residents to enjoy. The club is known for its lively social calendar, which includes themed parties, holiday events, and regular fitness classes. Drive your golf cart to your neighbor’s house, head to the clubhouse for a drink at the bar, participate in a tennis or pickleball competition and enjoy all that Crow Canyon has to offer!
Round Hill Country Club
Round Hill Country Club, located a short drive from Danville in Alamo, is a haven of tranquility and refined living. Originally constructed in the 60s as a golf course and luxury housing community, Round Hill has expanded in 1996 with the construction of its 46,000 sq. ft Clubhouse (recently renovated in 2018) offering resort level amenities. Dining areas include expansive outdoor seating and casual dining options, including ‘the pub’. The Fitness Center includes a studio for group classes and personal training. The club also features a golf course designed by renowned architect Robert Trent Jones Jr., multiple tennis courts, and a resort-style pool. Residents appreciate the scenic views of the surrounding hills and the serene atmosphere. My favorite margarita is served at the Round Hill bar and we love their annual events hosted for the whole family!
The Bridges Golf Club
While not a traditional country club, The Bridges Golf Club in San Ramon deserves a special mention for its lush and meticulously maintained golf course. This public golf course offers a challenging yet enjoyable golfing experience, and its stunning views of Mount Diablo make it a local favorite for golf enthusiasts.
