Directions to Clubhouse 1 from the North
Take the I-405 or I-5 South to the El Toro exit.
It is basically where the I-5 and I-405 meet – the “El Toro Y.” Take the El Toro Road exit. Stay in the second-to-the-right-hand lane. At the end of the exit ramp, just go straight ahead at the traffic light, which is on a street called Avenida Carlota. The second light will be at El Toro Road. Turn right on El Toro. Follow to “Continuation….” Below
Directions from the South
Take the I-5 North. Take the El Toro Road exit.
Once on the exit ramp, get in the left-turn lanes. At the stop light, turn left onto El Toro Road. Continue through three lights: Avenida Carlota, Laguna Hills Mall and Paseo de Valencia.
Continuation from both North and South
At the next traffic light, Avenida Sevilla, turn left and enter Gate One. If you live outside Laguna Woods Village, you will need to give this flyer to the “Gate Ambassador” at Gate One; be sure to complete the form at the top of this page.
After the Gate, turn left at the first stop sign; Clubhouse One will be on your left in a block-and-a-half. There is plenty of free parking in front of the building or behind the building.
