The Art of Living Well – a Legacy of Sophistication and Style
Perhaps no person was closer to symbolizing the style and charm of Rancho Santa Fe more than Bing Crosby. For Bing, Rancho Santa Fe was more than a retreat from the rest of the world; it was a place of warmth and sharing with friends and family.
Like all who experience this place, Bing was inspired by the history of Rancho Santa Fe and the vision of architect Lillian Rice, who, in the 1920s, created the look and feel of the Village. He even purchased one of the original Village adobe homes – The Osuna House – and commissioned Rice to design a complementary residence. In so doing, Bing joined the legacy of these gentle hills between mountains and sea. The shape of the terrain dictated the layout, and the course itself respects the rugged beauty of the land.
The Crosby Club draws inspiration from these historic structures and from the land itself. With each passing year the original idea is validated.
