History of North Ranch Country Club Estates At a Glance

In its early days, North Ranch Country Club Estates went by several names: Conejo Ranch, Albertson Ranch, and Russell Ranch. And like the rest of the area, it was also home to thousands of cattle. These cattle were eventually transferred to a new location due to the harsh drought during the late 1800s.

In the 1920s to 1940s, parts of Westlake Village including North Ranch were used as locations for filming movies and television shows. The area where North Ranch Country Club stands today was used as a set for episodes of Tarzan and popular westerns like Buck Rogers and Gunsmoke.

The American Steamship Club’s purchase of the 12,000-acre Albertson Ranch in 1963 marked the beginning of North Ranch Country Club. The club’s championship course was designed by esteemed golf course architect Ted Robinson in 1976.

North Ranch Country Club officially became a members-owned club after members from Prudential Insurance purchased it in 1990.
