Facility Spotlight – Las Posas Country Club
For 60 years, the Las Posas Country Club (LPCC) in Camarillo has been a proud staple of the community of Camarillo in Ventura County. Established in 1958 as a private equity club, LPCC is owned exclusively by its members, some who have been at the club for more than 50 years.
The club has seven lighted tennis courts, and the tennis activities are run by popular Director of Tennis Mark McCampbell, who has been at LPCC since the Fall of 2014 after spending 25 years at the Oxnard Tennis Center.
“From the great catering to the great fitness to the pool and the incredible golf, which can only enhance anything I do tennis-wise,” McCampbell said. “Las Posas is really a gem of a club in Southern California. It’s an amazing place.”
Las Posas Country Club is unique in that it offers a junior membership for families in the Camarillo-area who and not members, but want to take advantage of the tennis courts for junior players. There is also a non-residence membership for people who like to travel on the weekends, and stop off use the facility.
“Las Posas Country Club is a very social club and we do a lot of events, and clinics. It’s a very authentic club,” said David Driscoll, the Marketing Director at LPCC. “We just have a lot going on.”
McCampbell said the club hosts a USTA Level 3 National junior tournament, and a Level 4 and 5 SCTA events run by the VCJTA. The club also recently hosted the annual Tie Breaker Brewing Co. Gold Ball Classic Adult Open tournament that attached 160 players from San Diego to Santa Maria.
In 2017, McCampbell received the Coaching Excellence Award for Southern California and he also serves as the Chair of the SCTA Coaches Commission and as coach for the local USTA 14-and-Under Competition Training Center team.
McCampbell has also served as a coach for the Maze Cup co-ed team competition matching the best juniors from SoCal against the top juniors from NorCal.
