Why We Like This Place

Judging by its beautiful entrance, with a Tuscan-style gatehouse, trellised driveway and meticulous landscaping, Ruby Hill is no ordinary golf club. In fact, what lies beyond the impressive gates is not just a golf course, but an exclusive private community surrounded by vineyards and spread over acres of open land. It's so exclusive that in order to take a peek at this lovely facility you have to make an appointment. However, no membership or sponsorship is required to host your event here.

The clubhouse and fairways are a short drive up the hill, and as you make your way to the top, you pass dozens of spectacular homes whose graceful architecture defines the development. Most of these houses are reminiscent of Italian villas, and when you finally reach the clubhouse, you're hardly surprised to find that it's the largest and most striking "villa" of them all.

Step through the arched front door into the Fireside Room and you're more than a little awestruck by the grand scale and inviting ambiance. The vast marble floor gleams softly, bathed in natural light from a stunning domed skylight overhead. Elegant conversational seating is arranged beneath the skylight and in front of a large stone fireplace. You can't help but notice rich details, like the crown molding, wall sconces and window trim, all seemingly fashioned from stone, and the eclectic antiques and art, which add a personal touch.

From the Fireside Room, walk down the regal staircase into the Main Ballroom, where indoor receptions and special events are held. The sheer grandeur of the space makes you want to sit down to fully appreciate the soaring 40-foot ceiling, custom chandelier and abundant light streaming in through a multitude of high windows and glass doors. Walls are painted a warm Tuscan wheat accented with creamy white trim, and the Florentine motif in the custom carpet swirls beneath your feet in muted earth tones.

Next to the Main Ballroom are a similarly appointed small private dining room for rehearsal dinners or meetings, and the Event Lounge, which is draped with chiffon and illuminated by twinkle lights and a chic chandelier. All three rooms open out onto an expansive arcaded patio that overlooks a formal garden and emerald lawn, as well as views of the golf course, the Livermore hills and Mt. Diablo.

The patio also overlooks a stunning oval terrace that's custom-made for al fresco ceremonies and receptions. Paved with smooth Napa Valley stone and enclosed by two wisteria-covered trellises, the terrace feels intimate despite the fact that it's completely open to the sky, the breeze and panoramic vistas.

Ruby Hill Golf Club is a glorious spot for any upscale affair or holiday party. And if you're interested in a corporate golf tournament, it has the first Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course in Northern California. The clubhouse was built to exacting standards so we're quite sure you'll feel right at home.
