New Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club General Manager selected

Al Castro

Al Castro will join the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club as general manager and chief operating officer April 30 after a nearly 14-year career at The Vintage Club in Indian Wells.

“Al Castro was the unanimous choice of the selection committee and the RSF Golf Club Board of Governors,” said RSF Association Manager Pete Smith.

Castro said he knows a number of members at the RSF Golf Club as they are also members at The Vintage Club.

“I am very excited about this opportunity,” Castro said. “The Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club has an excellent reputation.”

Castro started at the Vintage Club as director of food and beverage in 1998 and was soon promoted to clubhouse manager; most recently he held the position as assistant general manager and was responsible for all club operations. Prior to his tenure at the Vintage, he was director of food and beverage at the Ritz Carlton in Rancho Mirage.  Before joining the Ritz Carlton, he held the positions of director of food and beverage and later director of operations at the Historic Mission Inn in downtown Riverside.

Castro received his certification as certified club manager (CCM) from the Club Managers Association of America and has earned the Level II Certified Sommelier designation from the Court of Master Sommeliers.

Castro has been married to Cary for almost 32 years. They have two grown sons, Christopher, 28, who lives in Petaluma, and Jonathan, 26, a resident of Big Bear.
