In celebration of its 50th anniversary, Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club announces a multi-million-dollar course renovation to break ground the first quarter of 2021. The club has selected Bergin Golf Designs to lead this milestone project.
Bergin Golf Designs is led by Bill Bergin, whose background in the golf industry is distinct. Bergin played the world’s best golf courses as a touring professional, gained an understanding of club operations and the ability of the everyday player as a teaching professional, and acquired technical design experience under the guidance of noted designer Bob Cupp. Since founding Bergin Golf Designs in 1994, Bergin has combined his strategic instincts and design experience with a dedication to detail in project management. Bergin Golf Designs has been involved in the planning and design of over 70 golf course projects, including more than 50 under his own banner.
Once complete, Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club’s new design will be challenging for the most skilled golfers, yet fun and friendly for the recreational player. Greens complexes will offer a wide variety of options for recovery and boast ample playing areas. The new design will add about an acre to the current greens complexes which will allow for more hole locations and a more dispersed traffic pattern. In addition, short game skills will be frequently on display.

The renovation project is anticipated to take six to eight months. This includes construction and grow time for all 18-holes. Prior to this time, club management will provide added membership benefits during the closing period which will include reciprocals/special pricing at other local courses, offerings and games at the club’s practice facility and new short game area.
The club’s new short game area which opened up in the fall of 2019 was also designed by Bergin Golf Designs. The short game area highly complements the upcoming course renovation with a 6,200 square foot green complex, two bunkers and the ability to hit both pitch and chip shots. One of the fastest growing trends in successful clubs around the country, short game facilities provide a place for practice and training that ultimately leads to more prepared golfers and improved scores on the course.
