PR spokesperson Christina Valle said Johnson and Mahoney, both Point Lomans, indicated “no immediate changes will be made to the iconic Liberty Station nine-hole walking course and clubhouse.”
Johnson and Mahoney have teamed with business partners John Levan (You & Yours’ creative director) and Oliver Mahoney to become the new tenant/operators of the par-3 golf course.
The new management team leased the property at 2960 Truxtun Road from owners Pendulum Property Partners. Current managers and employees of the club will roll over to the new operations team.
“As passionate fans of The Loma Club, the group aims to elevate the experience by incorporating their signature approach to hospitality and design, first by updating the food and cocktail programs and then by refreshing the clubhouse interiors,” said the new operators in a statement. “Later, there will be plans to further develop and enhance both the golf and hospitality concepts.”
The Loma Club will remain a separate entity from You & Yours Distilling Co.
Sail Ho was the original name given to the then-Naval Training Center’s golf course in the 1920s. In 2014, Good Time Design took over operation of the historic Liberty Station facility. Sail Ho’s name was changed at that time to The Loma Club.
Following the changeover, the golf club was remodeled with a new outside deck extending the existing restaurant onto the existing patio and the grass. The idea was to showcase the golf course, modernizing it and making it more “loungey and inviting.” The existing golf building was also remodeled to house an outdoor kitchen and bar.
