Morgan Run gym fits right in

Response to expansion positive

Rancho Santa Fe’s Morgan Run Club and Resort is seeing the benefits of their $6.5 million expansion project.

The new 15,000-square-foot Spa and Sports Retreat facility fits right into the resort that has been tucked into the Whispering Palms community since 1965. The retreat offers new gym facilities, a day spa and sparkling new pool.

“It gives us more of that whole resort feeling,” said Suzanne Taylor-Sandoval, director of sales.

The retreat is open to golf club members, guests of the 66-room hotel on site and those who have a spa and sports only membership. Since their November grand opening, 80 new members have signed on.

“I am extremely proud to be a member of Morgan Run,” said Terry O’Hara, the chair of the Morgan Run board of governors. “With 27 holes of golf, 11 tennis courts, a beautiful new spa and great members, I couldn’t ask for anything more.”

The center gets its biggest boost in the area of fitness. Before this facility came in Morgan Run was very limited in their fitness offerings, Taylor-Sandoval said.

The new fitness facility not only has beautiful views of the golf course from nearly every treadmill and elliptical, but the facility also boasts state-of-the-art equipment from Technogym. All cardio equipment has television and MP3 player connections and personal trainers are on hand to offer training specific to help improve members’ tennis and golf games.

There is also a large group exercise room for yoga, Pilates and aerobics classes and a separate kids’ club where children ages 2 to11 can hang out while mom and dad exercise.

Pool and spa time
The day spa is also a big upgrade for Morgan Run. The resort had a very intimate spa before, with just four treatment rooms. The new center has seven private and relaxing treatment rooms as well as an outdoor Zen Garden for specialty treatments.

The men’s and women’s locker rooms are also benefitting from the expanded room. Each comes with lockers (name plates for members included), a steam room for unwinding and a card room for socializing.

One of the most anticipated features of the Spa and Sports Retreat is the pool. Morgan Run went three years without having a pool during the construction phases of the new center. The new pool, which offers two lanes designated for lap swimming, comes with a children’s play feature and is surrounded by chaise lounges for sunning and an outdoor cafe. There is also a Jacuzzi.

Taylor-Sandoval said many members were taking advantage of some winter sun over the holidays.
