Ladies locker room at The Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe gets a full makeover


The ladies locker room at The Bridges has completed a head-to-toe makeover, showcasing striking wool carpeting designed in Rancho Santa Fe and woven in Europe; commissioned fine art by Michael Schlicting; and custom lighting, new furniture and accessories.

“Inside and out, every detail was scrutinized and refreshed, from the lockers to the Jacuzzi tile to the photography on the wall,” said Development Director Ken Ayers, who credited the elegant new look to a collaborative design by two local firms, Beki Designs and Abode Designs.

Evoking the feeling of a world-class five-star resort, the new ladies locker room is elegant and refined, yet casual and comfortable.

“It’s the balance we strive to attain in every facet of the Club,” said Ayers. “We are constantly upgrading and improving the golf course, grounds, service, programming and facilities.”

Among the handcrafted features are clay roof tiles, previously used on the roof of the Clubhouse and now cleverly repurposed as candle wall sconces. Lighting, draperies and furnishings have also been updated with new fixtures and handcrafted upholstery. Two new 50-inch televisions were added into custom designed millwork in the lounge, which is also home to a custom made card table. Conventional seating on the outdoor deck was replaced by 42-inch highboy tables, creating a more free-flowing social atmosphere.

The renovation of the 4,500-square-foot ladies locker room closely follows last year’s upgrade to the course, which included new tee box additions and bunker revisions. Bridges Member Phil Mickelson lent his vision and guidance to the construction of a new chipping and practice area, as well as new tee box and bunker placements.

“A great golf experience is the sum of details, both big and small,” said Ayers. “Here at The Bridges, we are constantly asking ourselves how we can improve the experience for our members.”
