Starting January 2020, Liberty Station’s historic golf venue The Loma Club will be run by a new team that includes Laura Johnson and Luke Mahoney, co-founders of the East Village’s You & Yours Distilling Co. Johnson and Mahoney are Point Loma residents and will be partnering with You & Yours’ creative director John Levan and Oliver Mahoney to oversee both the golf course and food and beverage operations.
They replace local hospitality group Good Time Design, which took over the original Sail Ho Golf Course in 2014, renaming it as The Loma Club and updating the space by remodeling the clubhouse’s bar and grill and adding a large deck and outdoor bar.
The Loma Club will remain a separate entity from the East Village craft distillery and eatery, which first opened in 2017.
The team says it will retain the club’s current managers and employees and does not plan to make immediate changes to the 9-hole walking course or the clubhouse when its lease starts next month. However, the group does plan to eventually update the food and cocktail programs and revamp the clubhouse interior as well as make improvements to both the golf and hospitality components.
