HISTORY

Morgan Run Club & Resort is located in the heart of an area rich in heritage in the San Dieguito Valley, next to a subdivision of Rancho Santa Fe known as Whispering Palms, approximately 20 miles north of downtown San Diego. In 1960, Roy Canady, a nationally known building contractor and golf course builder, purchased 300 acres and named the area Whispering Palms. It was described as “an area of unlimited sunshine and tropical climate.”

In 1965, 18 holes of the golf course were designed and constructed by Henry and David Rainville, Inc. The East Course opened in 1973, making Whispering Palms Country Club a 27-hole course. The Club was owned and operated by Ted Vallas for 23 years, and built as Whispering Palms Country Club to help support the development of the surrounding community. Whispering Palms Country Club added a resort component in 1975 with the creation of the first guestrooms. In 1993, the name was changed to Morgan Run by Cobblestone Properties, who purchased the Club from Ted Vallas. Jay Moorish redesigned the North and South Courses in 1996.

In 1999, ClubCorp Inc., based in Dallas, Texas, purchased the property from Cobblestone Properties and turned it into a private club in November 1999. Since that time, Morgan Run Club & Resort has continually evolved as a private country club, a boutique hotel/resort, a conference center and an exclusive destination location.
