History

Lake Sherwood, originally Potrero Lake, is the oldest man-made lake in California. It was built in 1904 and is approximately 165 acres. It was changed to Lake Sherwood when the surrounding areas, used for the filming of "Robin Hood" starring Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., in 1921, became known as "Sherwood Forest" and "Maid Marian Park."

The golf course was formally opened on October 30, 1989. Centuries prior to the country club were the Chumash Indians.

Sherwood's membership is comprised of approximately 350 member-owners and is by invitation or member referral.
