The Fountaingrove Club in Santa Rosa, Calif. recently began a food donation program to benefit the Redwood Empire Food Bank. The Fountaingrove Club is encouraging members, residents, Club staff, as well as those throughout the Santa Rosa community to donate non-perishable food items at the Club’s Athletic Center lobby from now through the end of the year.

“With the holidays quickly approaching, it’s important that we all help the Redwood Empire Food Bank fulfill their mission to feed the hungry in our community,” said Ronald Banaszak, chief operating officer, The Fountaingrove Club. “Fountaingrove members and residents are extremely philanthropic and giving, therefore we expect this food donation program to be very impactful.”

Through the food donation program, The Fountaingrove Club hopes to keep the Redwood Empire Food Bank’s warehouse shelves stocked with non-perishable staple grocery items for distribution through Redwood Empire Food Bank programs and their 170 partner organizations. According to the Redwood Empire Food Bank, the most needed items are:

  • Tuna and Canned Meat
  • Peanut Butter
  • Canned Soups, Stews, and Chili
  • Rice and Dry Beans
  • Cereal
  • Canned Fruits and Vegetables
  • High Protein Granola Bars
  • Trail Mix or Nuts

Located in the hills northeast of Santa Rosa, The Fountaingrove Club is experiencing a revitalization following the Tubbs Fire of October 2017, which destroyed 5,643 structures in Santa Rosa including Fountaingrove’s clubhouse and maintenance facility. The Fountaingrove Club features a beautiful Ted Robinson Sr.-designed golf course that boasts spectacular views of the Hood and Taylor Mountains as well as the rolling hills of Santa Rosa Valley. The golf course was spared from the Tubbs Fire and has remained fully operational, hosting member play and numerous tournaments. The Club’s Athletic Center complex features five tennis courts and a 25-yard infinity swimming pool. Members also enjoy an impressive array of fitness opportunities including martial arts, yoga, aquatics, personal training, spin and strength training.

The Fountaingrove Club is managed by Troon Privé, the private club operations division of Troon. For more information on The Fountaingrove Club, visit
