The exceptional quality and absolute seclusion of Sherwood Country Club set it apart from and above other private communities in Southern California. Created amid a backdrop of the Santa Monica Mountains and shimmering Lake Sherwood, Sherwood Country Club began in 1986 and offers home styles and a lifestyle that are exceptional.
Originally named Potrero Lake when it was built in 1904, it took on the name Sherwood after the 1921 filming of the classic Robin Hood starring Douglas Fairbanks Sr. A treasured summer retreat and weekend getaway for Angelinos for decades, the gated Sherwood of today is a combination of eclectic original home sites coupled with the newer premier enclave.
The two Sherwood Country Clubs boast Jack Nicklaus’ designed courses: the championship 18-hole golf course and the smaller 18-hole Par 3 course, tennis courts of hardtru, clay, and grass, two junior Olympic swimming pools, fitness centers and spas, and several pubs, restaurants, banquet halls, meeting rooms, and a varied social life with club activities.
Sherwood residents enjoy the beauty of nature, lake activities such as fishing, sailing, party-boat “yachting,” and kayaking year round, and a community full of interesting people.
