Fairbanks Ranch Country Club Luxury Homes – Rancho Santa Fe is a golf community that has the distinction of having been selected to host the 1984 Equestrian Endurance Event two years before the golf course was built. A bronze sculpture called “Victory’s Gate” now sits at the Club’s entrance to commemorate this prestigious and exciting event in Fairbank Ranch’s history. Since that time, Fairbanks Ranch has turned into an exclusive enclave that is fast becoming one of the most desirable country club communities in America.

The community dates back to 1924 when Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks purchased 800 acres of land, then named “Rancho Zorro”. Fairbanks planted over 300 acres of Valencia oranges but after his divorce from Pickford he visited the area infrequently. The land was maintained as an orange grove until being sold in the 1950s. Modern day Fairbanks Ranch was started in 1977 when Ray Watt purchased the property to develop a community of estate sites. Sales began in 1981.
