SONOMA COUNTY 路 CALIFORNIA
It is minutes. And it is moments. And it is your choice as to which you will end up with more of. Minutes are simply the things that time is made of â€” ticks on the clock that nonchalantly pass you by without a second thought. Moments are the times so special that they grasp tightly onto your heart and refuse to let go â€” the times that memories are made of. TIME IS AS VAST AS IT IS FLEETING.
A hiking trail meandering its way gently through a pristine ancient forest, enchanting you. The heady scent and rich, swirling hues dancing in a glass of rare wine, tempting you. The dogleg fairway leading to deep bunkers and a fast, tight green, daring you. A lush, moss-covered glen on a moonlit walk, seducing you. The promise and excitement of what all the tomorrows here might hold, whispering sweet desire in your ear. These are moments. Mayacama is the place where a fortunate few will make them.
The valley between the Sonoma and Mayacama Mountains is virtually unchanged since the Miwok Indians named this place Sonoma, or “valley of the seven moons.” Surrounded by rolling and forested hillsides, they believed they saw the moon rise seven times each night. IT SEEMS AS IF TIME STOOD STILL HERE.
Just a short, scenic drive from the San Francisco Bay area, in the heart of Sonoma County, Mayacama enjoys an almost mythical setting. Streams, ponds, marshland, tall grasses, ancient trees, wild turkey, and an abundance of other wildlife speak to the majesty of this beloved Wine Country sanctuary. Adjacent to Mayacama, the 850-acres Shiloh Ranch Regional Park serves as an even larger buﬀer to the outside world.
This members-only, gated retreat and club is distinguished by remarkable beauty and an uncrowded landscape. Mayacama will have fewer than 65 residences on 675 acres. It is a sanctuary tucked beautifully in the center of an enchanted forest that boasts a European spa, swim & tennis center, hidden trails, a clubhouse with sweeping views, and charming Mediterranean-inﬂuenced Villas. TIME WILL TAKE ON AN ENTIRELY NEW MEANING HERE.
Here, you’ll be immersed in an enriching lifestyle with an extensive oﬀering of year-round club programs and experiences. And we’ll see to it that the transition from urban life to rural simplicity is absolutely eﬀortless. As you stroll the grounds the ﬁrst time, you’ll feel an immediate sense of belonging. A moment you’ll cherish forever.
When golf is played as it is at Mayacama, the game returns to its time-honored origins. Woven into the hillsides and valleys, the Signature walking course is unequivocally one of Jack Nicklaus’ ﬁnest. Guided by caddies, golfers take to the meticulously groomed, 6,761-yard layout, and there is no requirement for a tee time. PLAY ANYTIME WITH NO TEE TIMES.
Rated #66 on Golf Digest’s Top 100 Courses in America, there’s no end to the camaraderie— from the Annual Member Guest Tournament to the couples’ Sip’n Swings to the inter-club challenges against clubs like GlenArbor in New York and The Eden Club at St. Andrews.
MANY WINES IMPROVE OVER TIME. OTHERS SHOULD BE ENJOYED SOONER.
Mayacama’s personalized service is designed to give you nothing but free time to enjoy your stay. Emulating what you would expect from a ﬁve-star resort, Members enjoy an absolutely carefree lifestyle. YOU CAN’T BUY TIME. SPEND WHAT YOU HAVE WISELY.
Served by a staﬀ that includes a concierge, chef, and sommelier, as well as housekeepers and a valet, you’ll welcome each visit. A ﬁtness center, wellness programs, and the services of a European spa converge to leave you feeling rejuvenated. Between the pool, supervised playroom, and Kids’ Camp, children or grandchildren also enjoy learning and exploring.
Inspired by the intimate hillside villages of Tuscany, Mayacama is an imaginative mingling of nature, art, and design. Quintessentially alfresco, it is elegant, yet casual, with equal attention given to outside and inside living. Homes, Villas, and Casitas cascade down the terraced hillside and are angled carefully to capture the most beautiful views. REMINISCENT OF ANOTHER TIME AND PLACE.
Hand-plastered walls and cool slate ďŹ‚oors lead eďŹ€ortlessly to the bright, sunny skies above the veranda. Sun-washed color palettes and wrought-iron archways accentuate the superb architecture. And, it is reserved for a privileged few Members and their guests.
If you’re traveling from afar, two international airports and Sonoma County’s private jetport make getting here convenient. San Francisco’s sights, restaurants, and cultural attractions are just 65 miles away, while 28 miles west is Bodega Bay on the scenic Paciﬁc Coast. TAKE YOUR TIME ENJOYING NORTHERN CALIFORNIA.
Day trips may ﬁnd you having lunch and browsing shops and galleries in Healdsburg, Sonoma, Napa, St. Helena, and Calistoga. Fishing, kayaking, and canoeing accompany hikes through the Armstrong Redwoods State Park, hot air ballooning, and cycling as ways to spend your day in the Russian River Valley.
What is a moment? It might be those ďŹ rst few seconds when you awake to the sweet symphony of morning songbirds. The minute you spy a doe nudging her new fawn up on his wobbly legs. The hour spent on the veranda savoring a bottle of wine that no one outside of here can buy. The afternoon that you ďŹ nally master the 12th hole. The day, or week, or month you spend with your family and friends, here, in this idyllic place called Mayacama.
