Haggin Oaks Golf Complex Sacramento
Two Courses: Alister MacKenzie and Arcade Creek
Address: 3465 Fulton Ave. Sacramento, Ca. 95821 Phone: 916-808-2525 Website:
There are two courses at Haggin Oaks, one designed by famous golf architect Alister MacKenzie which is called The MacKenzie course and the second course is Arcade Creek. They are two different courses. The MacKenzie Course has mature tree lined fairways and is fairly tight and like all MacKenzie courses is well bunkered. Arcade Creek is more open I like the MacKenzie course a whole lot more than Arcade Creek because it has a lot more character. Arcade Creek is pretty much straight up until you get to the holes on the back nine and only the last three. Don't get me wrong, both courses are enjoyable, but I like the MacKenzie course more because of its character and old style feel. The MacKenzie Course has been changed over the years due to the construction of Interstate 80 Freeway, but the course has just undergone a restoration project to restore as much of the original course and feel of the old course as possible.

Ancil hoffman golf Course Carmichael
Address: 6700 Tarshe Dr. Carmichael, Ca. 95608 Phone: 916-482-3284 Website:
This is another course that is very high on my favorite golf course list. When I lived in The Sacramento Area I used to play it a lot because it reminded me of Riverside Golf Course in Fresno which I spent much of my golf career playing. Ancil Hoffman is an "old style" golf course. There are no tricks, just a solidly designed golf course. The fairways are lined with tall, mature trees and the greens are smallish as well as well bunkered. There are a lot of fun holes on this course but my favorite is the uphill Par 3 14th, and at 106 Yards from the White tees you want to use enough club to get there.

Cherry Island Elverta

Cherry Island is located in the northern part of The Sacramento Area in Elverta. This is definitely an interesting golf course. Two creeks run through it and there are a couple of lakes you have to hit over. The course is basically flat and the greens are pretty big and putt well. I enjoyed playing the course and it is fair except for one hole that I didn't care for and that is the #7 hole where you have to hit over a lake to get on the green. I'll just leave it at that as the carry over the lake is pretty long for the average hitter. Overall though, its a good course and I would play it again. Check out the YouTube video and you can see more of the course.

Diamond Oaks Roseville
Address: 349 Diamond Oaks Rd. Roseville, Ca. 95678 Phone: 916-771-4653 Website:
Diamond Oaks is a short course but believe me, it will hold your interest. The fairways are tight and the greens are small. It is basically flat, although you will be traveling over hill and dell, but there are really no radical lies. There is water and there are bunkers. The course is a lot of fun to play with its dipsey-doodle nature and you won't get bored. Its a fun course and I wish I could get up to Roseville and play it again soon.

Dry Creek Ranch Galt

I don't know how many of you have driven up to Sacramento along Highway 99 from points south and run across the golf course that Highway 99 cuts through. That's Dry Creek Ranch. I like the layout of this course. There is water and many mature oak trees. On some of the holes the oak trees force you to hit a particular shot because they are guarding the green. It sounds kind of crazy, but even with the placement of the oak guardians, the course is pretty fair. There is platy of water on the course as well. Two holes are of interest here, at least to me. The par 3 11th hole is one of my favorite par 3's I've played. Its 160 yards uphill to a well bunkered green. If you look at it, there really isn't anything special to it, I just like it. The finishing hole Par 4 18th is a challenge. A creek runs in front of the green and it has to be a pretty accurate second shot to make it in two. It almost is best to layup and then you have a short wedge to the green. One drawback to the course is that maintenance is an issue.

Rancho Solono Fairfield
Address: 3250 Rancho Solano Parkway Fairfield, Ca. 94533 Phone: 707-429-4653 Website: . fairfieldgolf.com
Everything about this course seemed to be big. The greens are some of the biggest greens on The West Coast and they are well bunkered. From my recollections the course is fairly flat but does have some up and downs. It gets very windy in Fairfield, so if you are going to play this course play it in the morning when the wind isn't blowing so hard.

Lone Tree Antioch
Address: 4800 Golf Course Rd. Antioch, Ca. 945609 Phone: 925-706-4220 Website:
The reason this course is called "Lone Tree" is not because there is only one tree on the course, far from that. The fairways are tree lined but fairly wide. In one of the fairways stands a lone oak tree and that is where the course gets its name. The course is mostly flat, however there is some of the course that has gently rolling hills to negotiate. Number ten has two greens so you will want to check which green is in play. I remember that number 18 is an uphill par 4 that is a lot of fun to play. I enjoyed the layout, although there is really nothing special about it, just a good, solid challenging golf course.

Manteca Park Golf Course Manteca
Address: 305 N. Union Rd. Manteca, Ca. 95337 Phone: 209-825-2500 Website:
Do you like narrow, tree lined fairways? Do you like water? Do you like small, well bunkered greens? If you answered yes to all those questions, I have a course for you. Manteca will fit the bill quite nicely. This is true "old school" golf, my friend. The course is fairly short but extremely tight. This is a challenge, but a fair one. You just have to keep the ball in the fairway.

Here we have another golf course where a freeway cuts the course in half. Interstate 580 Freeway goes right through the middle of this course. What does this have to do with the course's playability? Nothing, I would think except for the constant noises from the traffic speeding on the freeway. OK now, I need to talk a little bit about the course. It is basically flat with wide, tree lined fairways and smallish green well protected by bunkers. There is water on a few holes. the course is well maintained but has a tendency to at times be pretty dry but in good shape. I would play it again if the opportunity came up.
