Newport Beach Country Club
When the 2016 Toshiba Classic charitable golf tournament comes back to the Newport Beach Country Club, the tournament will showcase the $40 million clubhouse that opened this past summer. The tournament, which runs October 5-9, benefits the Mary & Dick Allen Diabetes Center at Hoag. The center provides comprehensive services for those with diabetes or at risk for the disease, regardless of their ability to pay.
At the ribbon-cutting for the new NBCC clubhouse, speakers recognized the Toshiba Classic officials among the VIPs, community leaders and country club members in attendance, thanking them for their patience during the construction. Those at the opening, and the members who attended the NBCC housewarming later, seemed to agree that the wait was worth it.
The aesthetically pleasing Craftsman-style structure takes its place among the most prominent buildings on PCH. In addition to serving as a private club, the new clubhouse will be an important venue hosting nonprofit and charitable events sponsored by members, such as the Toshiba Classic, which has raised more than $18 million to benefit Hoag and other charities in its 18-year history.
