La Cumbre is, indeed, a peak experience. For members, it is a warm and welcome home away from home. For guests, it is an experience to cherish. Truly an oasis of serenity and satisfaction apart from the pressures of modern living, the Club combines a rich tradition with a dedicated vision of the future, assuring an incomparable balance of privilege and pleasure. 

The earliest Spanish settlers recognized the unique natural beauty of the rolling terrain on the inland borders of what would become the famous Hope Ranch property in Santa Barbara. They named the spot that would eventually embrace our course and Clubhouse, La Cumbre, or "high place, summit, peak". At the turn of the twentieth century, visionary enthusiasts began to bring golf from Scotland and Great Britain to the growing population of local residents and Eastern tourists in California. In this fashionable resort town, known even then as the Riviera of America, a dedicated group hired two eminent architects to fashion a private country club.

George Washington Smith, the most famous of all Santa Barbara architects, was commissioned to build the clubhouse, while Captain George Thomas, whose resume would include, Pine Valley, Merion, Bel-Air, Riviera and The Los Angeles Country Club, was hired to build an eighteen hole course featuring the highest design standards of the time. La Cumbre Country Club celebrated is centennial year in 2008 and continues to benefit from this spectacular setting and more than a century of design refinements, modernization, and caretaking. We invite you to explore the amenities of our magnificent retreat where the natural beauty is surpassed only by the fellowship of the members who partake in its numerous pleasures.
