A Stunning Makeover for a Grand Old Lady


By Kay Schroeder


Newport Beach, CA(Perfect Meal Today)10/12/16/–For sixty years the Newport Beach Country Club has served as the place for many Newport Beach and other Orange County residents to call their country club home. In July 2016, the Grand Lady received a 56,000 square foot property makeover. The $45,000,000 redo has left her looking ever so modern and elegant with the redesigned eighteen-hole golf course that Course Superintendent, Ron Benedict and his staff say has the best greens in Orange County. The new shimmering pool boasts of six lanes. In addition, NBCC’s commitment to fitness has yielded a state of the art fitness center and yoga studio.


Among the many of golf’s greats who have had the pleasure of playing at NBCC include Scott Hope, Fuzzy Zoeller, 49ers wide receiver Paul Salata, and Fred MacMurray. Interestingly, today’s Toshiba Classic was formerly known as the Crosby Southern (Bing Crosby) and originated at NBCC as a benefit for Hoag Hospital.


Other Newport Beach Country Club Amenities:


The gorgeous outdoor deck of The Seahorse Lounge provides the perfect place for members and their guests to relax in the delightful Southern California weather and enjoy conversation, specialty cocktails and select brand beers from the well appointed bar.


NBCC Veteran Chef, Lonnie Shepard has welcomed Food and Beverage Manager, Daniel Daoud in the much anticipated opening of the Seahorse Grille.   Members and guests are able to enjoy world class dining in the casually elegant Seahorse Grille. Just a few of the tantalizing offerings include:


* 22 oz. Bone In Rib Eye

* 14 oz. Berkshire Pork

* California Coastal Catch

* Organic Half Chicken

* Skuna Bay Salmon

* Potato Dumplings with Lobster


The club’s contemporary design makes its Craftsman Clubhouse ideal for grand parties as well as elegant weddings.

Private Client Director, LVMH, Seth Box is onsite to serve and work with clients to ensure that they and their guests experience the perfect balance and choice in food and beverages suited to their special event at NBCC.

If you are not a member of NBCC, I hope you will soon be invited as a guest to enjoy the awesome amenities and be a part of NBCC’s celebration of its new look.
