Morgan Run Club & Resort in Rancho Santa Fe to hold groundbreaking event for upgrade

Over the last five years Morgan Run Club & Resort has reinvested over $10 million in capital throughout the property including a state-of-the-art fitness facility, beach entry pool with a kids splash zone, serene spa, hotel rooms renovation and a golf course turf conversion. Morgan Run Club & Resort recently announced it will reinvest an additional $2 million towards a clubhouse and lobby renovation.

The official groundbreaking is on Saturday, March 30, at 1 p.m. The club will host appetizers and refreshments for members and guests. Not only is the clubhouse being renovated, but also “Club Life” is being reinvented. Morgan Run Club & Resort offers such events as “Camping on the Greens, poolside Dive In Movies, Friday Night Live, and local brewery dinners. To top it off on Sunday nights, Marty Connely’s 17-piece Big Band Express rocks the house.”

The renovation will feature a modern coastal ranch style, including new lighting, flooring, furnishing and finishes, an expanded bar and lounge, new green-side deck, and a high-tech business center with iPads and private meeting space.

“The new 20,000-square-foot clubhouse will provide a spacious, contemporary venue where members can dine, socialize, conduct business and celebrate special events.” Luis Ibarra, general manager.

Morgan Run recruited Chef Aldo Negrete to bring his wealth of knowledge and experience to the club. Most recently Aldo was the Executive Chef at Whisk n Ladle and has held positions at Saltbox and Quality Social. The new restaurant, 28 West, will feature “a unique dining experience with locally sourced products and the freshest ingredients.” The new lounge, with golf course views, will offer daily breakfast, lunch and casual dinner options.

During construction Morgan Run will remain open to members and guests. For more information, visit
