The historic Officers Club, built in 1928, has its own beauty and vintage charm. The ballroom seats up to 300 guests. If you are hosting a larger event, the outside patio area, which can be tented, can be utilized for additional seating. You do not need to be part of the military to lease the Club for events.

The Fireplace Room at the right entrance of the Club is approximately 20' X 40', and features wood beamed ceilings and accent lighting. This area is wonderful for welcoming your guests, displaying photos and memorabilia and serving appetizers. It can even be used for an intimate ceremony. There is a fireplace at the end of the room, with French doors along the front side of the building opening onto the veranda. Behind the Fireplace Room, through a set of French doors, is a library area with a pass through fireplace from the Fireplace Room.

As you enter the left entrance of the Club you will find our newly refurbished "lounge area." This area has new French doors and hardwood floors and is perfect for intimate gatherings, small meetings/conferences or luncheons. The lounge area also contains our bar. The Officers Club holds a liquor license and provides all bar service.

Arched entries invite guests into a ballroom that is approximately 50' X 75' and 15' ceilings and features dramatic draping and twinkle lighting. At the east end of the ballroom is a dance floor that measures approximately 30' X 30', and a stage with a piano.

The newly renovated, state of the art kitchen is available for your caterer to utilize. The kitchen includes a new industrial stove/oven, microwave, holding cabinets for hot entrees, refrigerator, coffee maker/server and ice maker.

Photographic opportunities abound, from the 1950s and 1960s historic airplanes that are on-site to the beautiful oak trees throughout the historic property. There is also a lovely small gazebo located on the grounds just to the right side of the parking area.

Historical Note: The Officers Club, Herbert R. Temple Center, is named after Lieutenant General Herbert R. Temple, Jr., who led and commanded platoon through brigade level organizations in the California National Guard. During his military service, he had key assignments with the 40th Infantry Division, the California Military Academy and served twelve years assigned to the Army Staff at the Pentagon.

The culmination of LTG Temple's exceptional career was in 1986. He was appointed by the President of the United States, Ronald Reagan, as the Chief of the National Guard Bureau, overseeing 550,000 Army and Air Guardsmen located throughout the 54 states and territories. General and Mrs. Temple currently reside in Palm Springs, California.




When using the Temple Center, you will have exclusive use of the entire facility, inside and out. Table seating and chairs for up to 300 people are available.
