There you are, on the beautifully manicured green grass, the sun shining down on you, golf club in hand, and ball poised on the tee. You are about to take a big swing and make the hole in one you have been waiting for all day. Suddenly you look out and notice the gorgeous palm trees and waves breaking. Welcome to paradise on a Golf Course!
How many states can match California for golfing? Not many. Of course Pebble Beach will be holding the U.S. Open, so it really does not get much better than golfing in California. Here are 5 of the best golf courses in California to tee-off on!
1. Pebble Beach Golf Course, Pebble Beach
Set atop a 75-foot bluff, Pebble Beach Golf Course provides extensive pristine views from the first through the ninth hole of the Pacific Ocean. Recent improvements to the course included remodeling its weakest areas which have made it one of the most popular courses in the country including hosting the 2019 U.S. Open for the sixth time!
2. Torrey Pines (South), La Jolla
One of the most beautiful golf courses in America north of San Diego, Torrey Pines has become famous for its landscape. Sitting on the cliffs along the coast of the Pacific Ocean, this golf course presents golfers with views unlike any other. Due to its beauty and competitive course Torrey Pines held the U.S. Open in 2008 and will be hosting the championship game again in 2021.
3. The Olympic Club, San Francisco
For many years the Olympic Club course was a test on golfer’s true ability to play the game. Once covered in dense forest it was a course that many professional golfers enjoyed to test their skills on. Now redesigned and cleared of forest the course is known to be one of the greatest challenges and most rewarding courses of all time. Soon to hold the U.S. Women’s Open in 2021 this is one golf course not to be missed in California.
4. Stone Eagle Golf Course, Palm Desert
Sitting on a rocky plateau above the Coachella Valley, Stone Eagle Golf Course gives golfers a true test of skill. The golf course was designed to utilize rocks and hillsides in the same way that sand dunes would be used in a regular golf course. Very intimidating in how it looks, as when beginning to hit the ball off the tee the grounds soon begin to widen. Although this golf course is rather deceiving visually, it will give any golfer a good run for their money.
5. The Vintage Club, Indiana Wells
This extravagant golf course was built for $6 million with the purpose of creating a golf course that had never existed before. Cascading waterfalls falling over different holes, small creeks streaming throughout the course, and different length of greens, this is one golf course well worth the game. Known to be one of the most aesthetically pleasing golf courses created by former golfer George Fazio and his son, place this on your golf bucket list.
