Why We Like This Place

You'll feel like you've stumbled upon an emerald tucked in between the tawny East Bay hills as you climb toward the lofty perch that is home to the Callippe Preserve Golf Course. A protected habitat for the beautiful California Callippe Silverspot Butterfly as well as the Tiger Salamander and the California Red-legged Frog, this graceful property carpeted in green and dotted with ancient live oaks and young sycamores has all the magic of Oz.

Nothing distracts from the beauty of the setting. The rambling, green and stone-colored California ranch-style clubhouse set on a promontory overlooking the entire Tri-Valley area is designed to enhance the natural ambiance. Most major celebrations take place on the airy Vista Patio, which presides over the spectacular golf course and valley panorama. This flexible space is enclosed on three sides, and the fourth can be draped to give the feel of a traditional indoor banquet room. On two sides, floor-to-ceiling windows slide open to allow balmy breezes to drift through. A broad, open-beam ceiling features lantern-style heat lamps that keep it cozy when those breezes cool. A delightful locale for cocktails, sit-down dinners, dancing or simply lounging with relaxed guests, it's bounded by the graceful curve of an adjoining two-tiered low deck. You'll want to linger out here as the well-trained staff serves up a California-style banquet as fresh and exhilarating as the surroundings.

Twinkling rope lights weave along the edge of the deck to illuminate its contours and the plantings of wild rose and fescue grasses that frame it. The perfect place for a band or quartet, the deck is also an excellent location for a small bar, welcome cocktails or additional seating. The wide lower deck a couple of steps below has a sweeping northern exposure and is ideal for stunning photos, romantic toasts, or late-night dancing under the stars.

After hours, the Vista Restaurant is also available for intimate private functions and offers club- and cabaret-style entertainment possibilities. It has a full granite bar, a princely two-sided stone fireplace, and a separate lounge area with wrought-iron chandeliers, redwood beam accents and saddle-brown leather couches. Your options are as limitless as the vistas. So, let your imagination soar here. The property's on-site coordinator and experienced banquet staff are adept at customization—and they're dedicated to making your dreams a reality. They'll help plan your event and allow you to sit back and enjoy the party at Callippe Preserve Golf Course. There's nothing like feeling on top of the world …
