THE WAY THE GAME WAS MEANT TO BE PLAYED
When golf is played at Mayacama, the game returns to its time-honored origins as a walking course following Scottish tradition. Woven into the hillsides and valleys, the Jack Nicklaus Signature course is unequivocally one of his finest. Guided by caddies, golfers take to the meticulously groomed, 6,761-yard layout. Consistently ranked among Golf Digest’s “Top 100 Courses in America”, the soul of the club is the camaraderie – from the annual MemberGuest tournaments to the “Sip ’n Swings” to the interclub challenges against the leading clubs in the US and around the world.
Of the 200 courses that carry his name, this is among Jack’s very best, where deep green fairways snake though golden valleys and oakstudded hills. Tees or greens, and sometimes both, are elevated. Mayacama is not a course where power prevails, but one where a deft touch and patience pay off. It is that truly rewarding Members’ course — one where every round is anticipated, where each is an invigorating challenge, and perhaps best of all, where the stakes are not dollars but wine, and winnings are happily shared.
EXCLUSIVE WINE EXPERIENCE
The wine program at Mayacama is extraordinary and immersive, as one might hope in a place where country roads in every direction are lined with vineyards. It is a location that gives Mayacama access to the very best Cabernet, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Zinfandel vineyards on the continent.
Indeed, wine culture is so woven into the lifestyle at Mayacama that wine lockers for Members outnumber golf lockers – a revealing fact. Bets on the course and courts are happily settled with a favorite vintage. Significant tasting events throughout the year are an important part of the culinary and social calendars. Most top Californian wines are sold through their private client list, some of the world’s finest wines never make it to the store shelf; but members of Mayacama get ready access to these impossible to find wines. This is because top wine makers, in their bid to become members at Mayacama, have committed a sizeable allocation of wine for members to purchase. We’re talking the likes of Fisher Vineyards, Harlan Estate, DuMOL, Wren Hop, Boich Family Cellar, and Tor Wines – just to name a few of the 36 vintner members.
The club has several classes of memberships each bestowing varied levels of access. For those of us without the deep pockets, and with no access to the club, these pictures are as far as our eyes can pry. A glimpse into the world of exclusivity and taste.
