Rancho San Joaquin Golf Course

1 Sandburg Way Irvine, CA 92612


Golf Course Description

This course is located near the University of California at Irvine. It is one of the finer public courses in the Orange County area. This well-manicured course was built atop an old landfill and the maintenance crew and course designers took great care in making this course especially beautiful. Every hole has its own unique characteristic. Most of the fairways are medium in width and feature large landing areas. There are some elevation changes throughout the course. For example, hole #14, a 367-yard, par 4, is highlighted by a drop of more than 60 feet in elevation from fairway to green. The greens are in good condition and full of subtle breaks. Water hazards (several lakes) come into play on seven holes. Robert Muir Graves redesigned the course in 1972. There is a practice center adjacent to the course consisting of a putting green and an extensive driving range. On Sunday mornings, golfers are required to use a cart. This course is managed by American Golf. The 5,794-yard ladies’ tee also has a men’s course rating of 66.7 and slope of 109.
