Lake Sherwood is a beautiful community nestled within the Santa Monica Mountains that is widely regarded as one of the finest places to settle down in Southern California. This place is known for overlooking the Lake Sherwood reservoir that provides many residents with lakefront views, while it also has a prime location within the Conejo Valley that’s nearby Los Angeles and a variety of additional major hubs of entertainment and shopping, such as Thousand Oaks.
Among the more popular destinations in Lake Sherwood is the esteemed Sherwood Lake Club, which is a local country club that offers a wide array of stylish amenities and unique golfing experiences for members as well as convenient access for residents of Lake Sherwood.
The Sherwood Lake Club Golf Course
The Sherwood Lake Club golf course is an 18-hole course that consists entirely of unique and inventive Par-3 holes that were heavily influenced by the famous golfer Jack Nicklaus. It was the first “Bear’s Best” golf course that was ever created, which refers to courses that are made using the designs of some of the most famous holes that Jack Nicklaus designed around the world. Once you have become a member and wish to play some golf on this course, you will be provided with three separate tee sets at each hole, each of which is designed to accommodate a certain skill level from beginner to junior and experienced.
Due to its location nearby Lake Sherwood and among the Santa Monica Mountains, this golf course will provide you with spectacular views as you’re spending a day out on the course. Each hole is distinct in its appearance, as some are lined with numerous bunkers that are difficult to hit around, while others come with sizable water hazards that it takes skill to properly navigate around, especially at holes 5-6 and 13-15. The most unusual yet popular hole on this course is a small 65-yard hole that is situated on an island that’s surrounded by water on three sides. The greens and fairways are always kept in immaculate condition, allowing you to swing away without worrying about poor course conditions or bumpy greens.
Many celebrities have been known to have golfed at this country club over the years, primarily those who have made Lake Sherwood their home such as the likes of Sylvester Stallone and Tom Selleck. Due to the fact that this golf course is a unique Par-3 course, there are no PGA tournaments that are held here, but members are provided with the ability to participate in a number of tournaments against other members throughout the year, giving you an opportunity to compete and improve your golf game. If you want to brush up on your swing, it’s possible to receive one-on-one instruction or group golf clinics when you’re a member, all of which are provided by trained and certified instructors.
Tennis, Fitness, Swimming, & More!
While the highlight of the Sherwood Lake Club is its Par-3 golf course, it also consists of a beautiful and luxurious 14,000 sq. ft. clubhouse that is designed to provide members with a wide range of additional things to do, whether their primary goal is to socialize with other members or play another sport when not on the course, such as tennis or swimming. The amenities within this clubhouse were designed with quality and variety in mind, as members are provided with full access to an Olympic-size pool, an outdoor spa, and a wading pool, while separate saunas can be found in the locker rooms. There’s a sizable lounging area surrounding the pool where you can get a tan and chat with other club members, while food and drink service is provided to members at the pool throughout the summer months. While the hot tub is heated all throughout the year, the Olympic-size pool is heated specifically from April to November.
When you want to get in some exercise or focus on your workout routine, the Sherwood Lake Club houses a spacious state-of-the-art fitness center that provides you with pristine equipment that allows you to do any form of exercise, from weight lifting and strength training to cardio exercises. It’s at this fitness center that you will find the locker rooms, saunas, and showers. If you are attempting to lose weight or stay fit, the Sherwood Lake Club has a number of professional fitness instructors on hand that can provide you with personal training sessions that will help you reach your fitness goals and learn more about the latest trends within the fitness industry.
Another core feature of the clubhouse that you can enjoy when you’re not golfing would be the tennis facilities, which are open to all members. These facilities consist of two spacious tennis courts that are made from a championship-caliber hard surface to match the ones used at the U.S. Open. These tennis courts are nestled in a small area just outside of the clubhouse that provides you with scenic views of the Santa Monica Mountains as you swing your racket against the tennis ball. Once you’ve become a member, you can play on these courts at any time between 8:00AM and dark on Tuesday through Sunday. The Sherwood Lake Club also has two tennis professionals that are certified by the USTPA to provide lessons, which come in the form of group, semi-private, and private lessons depending on your preference. If you’re a member, you can access all of the aforementioned facilities at any time, providing you with the means of using the country club as a home-away-from-home.

Whether you’ve just finished a round of golf or are relaxing after an intense workout in the fitness center, you will have access as a member to the Sherwood Lake Club’s Grille, which is a fine-dining restaurant within the clubhouse that offers a spacious lounge and covered terrace for dinner with a view.
