Art Lovers Club
Who is art really for? A.) The artist who creates it. B.) The admirer who enjoys it. At the Art Lovers Club, the answer is: C.) Both. You don't have to be an artist to join, although there are some gifted artists among its members. The only requirement is right there in the club's name: a love of art.

Pet Lovers Club

The trips range across the Southwest U.S. and each is planned by a "Wagon Master" who arranges for interesting activities and lodging for RV owners and for those just along for the ride. For more info, caravan over to the RV Club website.
The Sailing Club welcomes members from every aspect of the nautical world: veteran sailors, travelers whose idea of sailing is sightseeing aboard a cruise ship, or even a few who wouldn't get near a boat. What binds this disparate crew is not only a fascination with the ocean but the enjoyment of each other. The club charters boats at Harbor Island Yacht Club, skippered by their own highly qualified captains, for a day of sailing in San Diego Bay and on the ocean. The day often ends with dinner at a bayside restaurant. The monthly club meetings cover future trips and regattas and short videos on sailing. The atmosphere is always party-like, with a hosted appetizer bar, wine and soft drinks. Old salts and landlubbers alike can join the fun by checking out the Sailing Club website.

You don't have to know your "allemande-left" from your "dosey-doe" to enjoy square dancing. That's the philosophy of the Village Squares, one of the oldest clubs at Ocean Hills Country Club. Square dancing is fun, great exercise and, as the club puts it, "friendship set to music." The Village Squares are just as welcoming about the music to which they dance: you're as likely to be swinging your partner to jazz, pop or rock as country. The club offers a unique year-long class offered for beginners and each Wednesday night is devoted to two hours of swirling and twirling. For more information, just promenade over to the Village Squares website.

Wine Tasting Club
One of Ocean Hills' newer and fastest growing clubs is devoted to one of mankind's oldest passions: wine. The Wine Tasting Club is made up of several groups of 15-30 members each, and their respective names are a clear indication what goes on when the wine tasting begins: "Grape Expectations," "Corkers," "Bacchus Bunch," "Que Syrahs," and "Clinkers." The club offers the opportunity to learn about wine while meeting new friends in a relaxed, party setting. They meet monthly, rotating the role of host and wine presenter among members, as new wine choices are presented by at each gathering.

One of the longer standing clubs at Ocean Hills is the Yiddish Club. It's dedicated to exposing members to the joy of the Yiddish language and culture through a variety of programs.

Programs vary through the year and include humor, videos, music, speakers, and live entertainment. The club meets six times yearly, and all are welcome with or without linguistic ability. Come to lakhn (laugh), nosh (snack) and smooze (you know this one!).
