Established in 1970, Coto Valley Country Club enriches the lush landscape of the Coto De Caza Valley with acres of family-friendly facilities dedicated to sports, fitness, and relaxation. Atop the blue-and-green plane of 10 tennis courts, players can hug the baseline, return heated serves, or weave yellow ball fuzz into the net during friendly matches or lessons from one of the resident aces. Idyllic trees and rustic riding trails surround the equestrian center, where horses bound over hurdles at the show-jumping course or dart across the polo field. The club also offers a variety of fitness activities and amenities, from boot-camp and karate classes for keeping bodies in shape to massage therapists for assuaging the lingering pain from napping on the elliptical machine. As a more tranquil alternative, guests can always simply laze by the poolside or stroll the fragrant gardens before unwinding with a drink at the bar or an alfresco meal on the outdoor patio.
