Monterey Peninsula Country Club
The course at Monterey Peninsula Country Club is nationally recognized as one of the top in the nation and is an absolute source of pride for its members. Located in Pebble Beach, California, the authentic Spanish colonial design of Monterey Peninsula Country Club is true to tradition in everything from the terra cotta tiles to the color scheme to the lighting.
In working on the design, it was important to J. Banks that we stay true to the deep history of the club. The breathtaking view from the clubhouse was capitalized on by adding a panoramic outdoor terrace that will be used for dining and as a gathering space. We greatly enhanced the bar and expanded the availability of dining experiences for members. The club renovation was complete and opened in late July 2018.
We worked with project architect, Marsh & Associates, Inc., to create a seamless relationship between the architecture and the interior design, taking into consideration sun-warmed hues that are so prevalent in the Spanish colonial vernacular, such as the ochres and terracottas in surfacing materials and deep-toned woods for beams and ceilings.
The storied history of the property has its beginnings in 1925 when founder Samuel Finley Brown Morse established the club. In 1926, the beautiful clubhouse, designed by Clarence A. Tantau of San Francisco, opened on July 2nd. The price of the dinner dance ticket then was only $5 per plate! The shore course was built in 1960 and remodeled in 2003 with visionary Michael Strantz at the lead. The Dunes Course was remodeled in 1998 by Rees Jones, the son of legendary golf course architect Robert Trent Jones.
These are big names in the golfing world and we a J. Banks Design Group feel honored to provide the members of this legendary club with beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces in which to kick back when the days of hitting the greens come to a close.
