California’s  10 Best Hidden Gem Golf Courses

Under the radar landscapes are magnificent places to swing away

Viewing a satellite image of California north to south will reveal a right-to-left dogleg fairway bordered on the west side by a 1,264-mile water hazard and a 400- mile stretch of High Sierra mountains on the east. Covering the entire golden terrain between these borders is enough yardage of golf holes to stretch from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean. With Mother Nature’s help planting landscapes of mountains, valleys, forests, coastline and desert, it’s no surprise the Golden State is considered one of the most attractive destinations in the world. When it comes to teeing up the little white ball, these geographical wonders have produced backdrops for an incredibly diverse collection of golf courses to suit every golfer’s taste and budget. While there are myriad coveted bucketlist venues such as Pebble Beach Golf Links and Spyglass Hill Golf Course on the Monterey Peninsula, Torrey Pines Golf Course on the Pacific coastal bluffs in San Diego or PGA West in the Palm Springs desert, there is a staggering list of distinct golf courses open year-round that fly under the golfer’s radar but are as golden as the nuggets discovered during the Gold Rush!   There are far too many golf courses to highlight—currently, more than 600 are public accessible—but here are some standouts that will help unlock a golf experience of a lifetime.  


Greenhorn Creek Golf Course
Robert Trent Jones, Jr. re-designed one of
Northern California’s finest golf experiences,
taking full advantage of the
panoramic views of the Sierra Nevada
foothills. Located near historic Angels
Camp, where Mark Twain scripted his
famed Jumping Frog short story bringing
the mining camp to prominence during
California’s Gold Rush, the 6,749-yard
course meanders around ancient oaks with
18 diverse golf holes. With on-site accommodations,
the resort is a perfect jumping
off point to scenic drives, 32 local wineries,
plus a wide variety of outdoor activities in
the heart of the Gold Country.
