11 Strawberry Farm Rd Irvine, CA 92612
This course, which opened in November, 1997, combines the rural beauty and tranquility of the surrounding area with the challenge of true championship golf. The club’s managing partner is Doug DeCinces, who played Major League Baseball for the Baltimore Orioles and the Anaheim Angels. While requiring both distance and accuracy, the course has enough variety to bring players back time and time again. The course is set amid canyons and wetlands and offers players narrow fairways within environmental sensitive areas, and tall underbrush paralleling both sides of the fairways. A local rule provides that the environmental areas are to be treated as lateral hazards. There are many sand bunkers on the fairways and around the greens. Most greens are not leveled and have subtle undulation that require several rounds of play to figure them out. All of the golf carts are equipped with Pro Shot electronic range finders. While the club allows carts to travel on the course, many holes are roped off, requiring you to walk from the cart path to your ball. Two outstanding holes are hole #10 and hole #18. Hole #10, a 369-yard, par 4, is probably the most photographed hole. It is a dogleg left around the Sand Canyon Reservoir, with the tee area being elevated above the fairway and many sand bunkers placed along the left side of the fairway. Hole #18 is a great finishing hole. This 403-yard, par 4 requires a long tee shot to set up an approach that must carry a stream to the elevated green. This is also a very pretty hole with natural waterfalls coming down the cliff to the right of the green. The training facilities include a lighted driving range and practice center with professional instruction, a clubhouse, pro shop, dining room, bar, meeting room, and large reception and banquet facility known as “The Barn.” The 5,805-yard men’s tee also has a ladies’ course rating of 74.1 and a slope of 128.
