Rossmoor Clubhouses

  • Walnut Creek, California
  • Golden Rain Foundation

As part of the Rossmoor active senior adult community, outdated structures were replaced with five new facilities, expanded parking, and enhanced site amenities.

The greatest challenge was integrating the new facilities to preserve as many of the site's mature heritage trees. DAHLIN designed two new facilities, the Creekside Clubhouse and the Rossmoor Event Center, totaling 55,190 square feet. The new Craftsman-styled clubhouse features a 400-seat banquet hall/multipurpose room with a stage for theatrical events, golf pro shop, bar and cafe with indoor and outdoor patio seating, meeting rooms, and staff offices. The clubhouse also supports an interior golf cart barn and a second equipment barn with security and maintenance.

The Rossmoor Event Center completes the multibuilding complex of this vibrant social center. Designed to host larger special events, four multipurpose spaces flexibly adapt to serve as a banquet hall and event space for formal theatrical performances. Outfitted with a formal green room and actors' dressing rooms, the facility also features a full commercial kitchen for catered events.

"We've been using the building now for almost nine months, but last night I was in attendance at the closing event of our anniversary week. It was a Rossmoor big band concert with hosted drinks and desserts at intermission. It was glorious! I was just in awe seeing and hearing the performance, sharing that beautiful space with a delighted audience of about 450. Thank you again for your design and the execution skills to bring it to life." -- Warren Salmons, CEO of Golden Rain Foundation (Rossmoor)
