November Featured Business of the Month

The City of Santa Maria and Santa Maria Valley Chamber are partnering to highlight different businesses in the City of Santa Maria through their Santa Maria Featured Businesses program. This program gives recognition to businesses who have been in the community for a significant amount of time, and/or providing unique or significant contributions to our community. Not only does this give valuable exposure to these local businesses, it also reminds our community of the unique, diverse and long-standing businesses we are fortunate to have in Santa Maria.
The focus for 12 months, since January 2023, gives recognition to local businesses for their longevity and/or providing significant healthcare contributions.
This month’s long-standing business is the Santa Maria Country Club at 505 West Waller Lane. Established in 1921, the Country Club now has 68 employees. It provides a clubhouse, 18-hole golf course, tennis and pickleball courts, catering, and a pro shop. Many community events, galas, weddings, and fund-raisers take place on its grounds. The Country Club hosts many non-profit businesses, promoting and supporting them through participation in their events or donations. The Country Club is applying to renovate its Snack Shack and hopes to add a fitness facility.
