Malibu Golf Club revamp in the works

As part of blueprints for more than 200,000 square feet of new development at the Malibu Golf Club, planners are looking to construct 40 bungalows, an educational and meeting facility, a clubhouse and several other new structures. 

The plans also include a redesign of the 18-hole golf course and 387 new parking spaces. 

The structural development would become known as The Malibu Institute.

Each of the new structures would aim to be “green” and gain LEED certification, according to county documents. There are also plans to remove onsite septic tanks and replace the water system with an onsite wastewater treatment facility that would recycle water and make it usable for golf course irrigation.

The new facilities would also be affiliated with the University of Southern California, which wants to host conferences and retreats year-round in the new digs. 

The Malibu Institute would be open year-round for education-oriented conferences, and with overnight accommodations would operate 24 hours per day,” a county planning report said.


The plans are still pretty far off as the county is continues putting together an environmental impact report.

The Malibu Golf Club is located at 901 Encinal Canyon Road in unincorporated Malibu.
