Our Historic La Jolla Beach Resort

In a world of fleeting trends, this landmark resort in La Jolla, California, is a testament to timeless elegance and grace on the San Diego coast.

Historical Transformation

Originally opened in 1927 as the La Jolla Beach & Yacht Club, the property underwent a transformative journey under F.W. Kellogg’s vision. He converted the club into an exclusive oceanfront tennis resort, adding tennis courts, a swimming pool, and the Beach Club Apartments. The transformation was marked by dedication to recreation and luxury.

Legacy of Expansion

W.S. Kellogg, son of F.W. Kellogg, played a pivotal role in expanding the resort’s facilities. His tenure saw the addition of the North Wing, Playa Del Oro Apartments, F.W. Kellogg commercial building, and The Marine Room restaurant. The legacy of expansion continued, making the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club a comprehensive destination for guests.

Generational Stewardship

Welcoming a new generation of guests and members, the Club is now managed by fourth-generation Kellogg family member, William (Bill) J. Kellogg. The Club stands as a cherished family heirloom, maintaining its deep-rooted ties with the La Jolla community. It’s a testament to the enduring commitment of the Kellogg family and a symbol of La Jolla’s unique charm.
