  Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club recently announced the expansion of its membership, with the addition of over 30-plus membership upgrades and nearly 30 new Equity Members, as well as the large increase to their junior membership, with numbers almost doubling over the last two months.

The membership increase is a result of significant, recent enhancements to the golf course, along with operational improvements both under the direction of the Board of Directors and Professional Golf Management.

Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club was established in 1969 in a concrete block building bearing little resemblance to the sophisticated structure that currently sits directly on the beach south side of 30A. The golf club started as a nine-hole course, built by the members, and later transformed into 18 holes designed by Roy Albert Anderson. The course beautifully carves through the natural surroundings of the local area. 

The club has always been owned by the Equity Members, a unique membership experience.  Equity Members, through the board, direct the operations of the club and have a say-so in the plans for the future of the business.

“The experience as an Equity owner is unparalleled to any other club experience in the surrounding area,” says Lesan Gouge, Marketing and Membership Director.

Membership has its rewards, as the member and their families are entitled to preferential rates and tee times, unlimited golf course use and exclusive participation in major club tournaments. Equity Members are also afforded the opportunity to walk the golf course and participate in a range membership for a nominal fee. An Equity Member also has the exclusive opportunity to pass the membership down to immediate family for a small transfer fee, allowing the membership legacy to be continued.

“Here, membership is a lifestyle,” Lesan said.
