The Club now called Peninsula was founded in 1912 as the Beresford Club and boasted a Tom Bendelow golf course, but the members wanted something more. In 1922 they sought out Don-ald Ross and asked him to come to California. Ross was at the Beresford for 21 days completing his design and although he did not stay for the Grand Opening his fingerprints can be found throughout the course.

When members began talking of developing a master plan for renovation, our Club Historian suggested that we contact the Donald Ross Society and it was this group that made the Club’s leadership aware of recent trends in course restorations. We found a wonderful architect with a profound respect for Ross (Ron Forse who has offices in far off Pennsylvania) and once again we brought an Easterner out to the West Coast.

Now, once again, we are asking you Easterners to come west and join us for four wonderful days of golf and fellowship. We will play three amazing golf courses: Peninsula (the only Ross course west of Colorado); Stonebrae TPC (a David Kidd gem overlooking San Francisco Bay); & Aetna Springs Resort (located in Napa wine country this is the oldest golf course in California).
