Mayacama Members Speak

The story begins and revolves around an expansive Mediterranean-inspired clubhouse. Formal and casual alfresco dining overlooks a Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course. There is a spa, tennis, pools, fitness, hiking, bocce and exquisite residences nestled into the lush oak-shaded landscape. A Vintner Member program that features 35 of the leading winemakers from Napa and Sonoma accentuates the entire experience. Mayacama is above all things a vibrant and immanently social lifestyle, and an idyllic home away from home.

Stay tuned as 2016 will bring a new Whole Ownership Villa Program and the eventual accelerated build-out of more lodging.

We always enjoy hearing first impressions of the property, we invite you to learn more about Membership at this captivating Wine Country retreat through the words of Mayacama Members.

We look forward to many years at Mayacama with our children and, some day, their families.” – Karl and Robin May

“We’d heard about this fantastic course called Mayacama so we started looking into how we could play it. We were so impressed on our first visit with the beauty of not only the golf course and surrounding vistas, but also the residences and common areas. We’re so excited to be part of Mayacama and look forward to golfing and enjoying all Mayacama has to offer on our visits to Northern California.” – William Gundry and Susan Bentley

10 Reasons We Love Mayacama Life

There are so many reasons to love life at Mayacama. From its prime location to amazing amenities, we’re showcasing the top 10 reasons we enjoy life at Wine Country’s premiere resort community.

675 Acres of Classic California Wine Country
Your very own sprawling spot in the heart of Wine Country has to top the list. Sonoma County offers some of the most picturesque settings in Northern California, whether taking in rolling hills of grape vines and the colors they bring, exploring the charm and character of one of its many quaint towns or enjoying outdoor activities in a lovely natural setting. It’s hard to believe such a tranquil location exists amazingly close and within easy reach of the buzz of an international city.

Easy Access to San Francisco City Life
We’d be amiss if we didn’t highlight Mayacama’s close proximity to San Francisco. Just over an hour away the City by The Bay offers a variety of entertainment and cultural venues coupled with its incredible food scene. If you find yourself heading into the City, be sure to visit this popular travel site showcasing all that San Francisco has to offer.

A Day Trip to Lake Tahoe’s Year-Round Playground
Whether enjoying world-class skiing at Squaw Valley, Heavenly and Northstar or spending a fun-filled summer weekend on the water, Lake Tahoe is your playground at elevation and is less than a 4 hour trip from Mayacama.

The Raw Beauty of the Sonoma Coastline
The rugged majesty of the Sonoma coastline is easy to reach from Mayacama. Visitors escape to this remote destination to unwind, relax and take in some of the more scenic sights along this barely touched coastline. You can also travel back in time with a visit to the early Russian establishment at Fort Ross, an outpost engaged in hunting and trading.

World Class Dining with a Farm to Table Twist
Enjoy the casual elegance that Wine Country has to offer with its variety of farm-fresh dining options throughout the region. Whether you choose an elegant, formal setting or a casual family-friendly venue, there is something for everyone when it comes to dining in Wine Country. In fact, the Michelin Guide recently released its 2016 stars for the San Francisco Bay Area, and ‪ Wine Country ranked very high compared to the rest of the region. When planning your next stay at ‪Mayacama, add these local stars to your list and experience some of the very best fine dining in Wine Country.

No Club Celebrates Golf and Wine like ‪Mayacama
Of course, we are a bit partial when it comes to golf courses. Our Jack Nicklaus Signature course is unequivocally one of his finest. GOLF.com ranks Mayacama #9 among the “19 Best 19th Holes”. Saying, “It boasts (35+) vintner-members, including the folks who produce Cakebread Cellars Chalk Hill Estate Winery and Silver Oak Cellars. Each vintner provides special tastings each year — the better to help members cope with a Jack Nicklaus design that’s so tough, it would drive anyone to pop a second cork.” However, if you do find yourself along the California coast, there are a number of outstanding public courses in Pebble Beach and Santa Cruz, an easy drive from Mayacama.

Pedal Heaven – 2-Wheeled Nirvana
Recreational bicycling options abound in the region. Enjoy scenic and winding roads as you tour the landscape of Wine Country on 2-wheels. Our Concierge can set you up with group bike tours or recommend the very best trails for those novice to recreational riders. For the competitors out there, Levi’s GranFondo is both a challenging and competitive mass-start cycling event hosting riders of all ability levels from around the world.

Rejuvenation -Hot Springs and Spa Central
Our region is known for its health spas, drawing visitors from across the globe. Unwind onsite. The Spa at Mayacama offers an experienced team of massage therapists and estheticians who deliver rejuvenating treatments for body, mind and spirit.

A Kid-Friendly Location
If you have little ones, there are a number of venues to keep them engaged and entertained. In addition to the family-friendly onsite pool, golf and tennis courts, Maycama offers a great line-up of kid-friendly events planned year-round for our wee members. Thoughtfully created for different age groups up to 14 years old, the Mayacama Juniors’ Club features year-round activities that are anything but ordinary. There’s trapeze adventure at the Russian River Circus School. Kids can learn about the magic of filmmaking and special effects with an industry expert. Experience life on the Savannah at Safari West or skate ‘til you drop at Snoopy’s Home Ice. If they still have energy after the skating adventure, head over to the adjacent Charles M. Schultz Museum and explore the world of the man who brought us the Peanuts Comic Strips.
