FROM SCRATCH TO SCRATCH YOUR HEAD

All golfers are welcome here. Known as one of the top ranked public courses in California, DeLaveaga was designed by architect, Bert Stamps, in the late 1960s. Originally laid out as a par 72 with a thoughtful course design, narrow landing areas, a short layout and spectacular views, this now par 70 is awe-inspiring and it continues to live up to its challenging reputation. (Hole #10 was voted one of the toughest holes in Northern California.)

Delaveaga Course Tour

PAR 5 | HCP 4
Think twice about grabbing the driver out of the bag for this tee shot. The hole is bordered by out of bounds on your left and lateral water on the right. A long iron or hybrid may be the best choice if you plan to stay in this narrow fairway.

1 of 21

PAR 4 | HCP 10 
This 337 yard Par 4 is a real sleeper from the tee, but lateral water guards the entire right side of this hole. Miss left and the conveniently placed fairway bunker awaits you. Mounding around the perimeter of the green will challenge your short game should you miss the green on your approach.

2 of 21

PAR 3 | HCP 14
This little, but difficult Par 3 is all carry over a ravine, which can result in a costly penalty if you fail to carry it. You must also guard against hitting too much club as the lateral water that wraps the right side and back of the green awaits errant tee shots. This green is one of the most challenging on the course.

3 of 21

PAR 4 | HCP 12 
A 332 yard dogleg right which invites you to hit driver off the tee. Lose your tee shot right though and you could walk off the 4th with a big number.

4 of 21

PAR 3 | HCP 16 
Another difficult Par 3. You’re faced with a 171 yard downhill shot to a kidney-shaped green. Pick your club wisely. Miss right of the bunkers and you’ll find yourself in yet another lateral water hazard.

5 of 21

PAR 4 | HCP 6 
A very challenging dogleg right Par 4. Try and cut too much off the dogleg with your tee shot and you’ll be asking your friends to help find your ball in the eucalyptus groves lining the entire right side of this hole. The left to right sloping fairway and uphill approach will require all of your attention.

6 of 21

PAR 5 | HCP 4
This 366 yard, slight dogleg left requires two very well placed shots. Aim at the fairway bunkers off the tee to give yourself the best angle into the green. Miss the fairway off the tee and you’ll be lucky to escape with par.

7 of 21

PAR 3 | HCP 18 
From the tee, this little Par 3 looks inviting, but be careful with your alignment and club choice. Deep front bunkers and a severely left-to-right sloping green await errant tee shots.

8 of 21

PAR 4 | HCP 2
Pull out your driver for this 408 yard Par 4. Hit it down the left center of the fairway, aiming just left of the clubhouse in the distance. OB borders the entire right side of this hole, so don’t start thinking about lunch at the turn too soon.

9 of 21

Driving Range
Our two tired, 40-station lighted driving range offers three sizes of buckets. Range service including snacks and beverages are also available.

PAR 5 | HCP 1 
Pull out your driver for this 408 yard Par 4. Hit it down the left center of the fairway, aiming just left of the clubhouse in the distance. OB borders the entire right side of this hole, so don’t start thinking about lunch at the turn too soon.

13 of 21

PAR 3 | HCP 15 
A 164 yard Par 3 which plays slightly uphill. This relatively deep green is guarded by bunkers on the left and right.

14 of 21

PAR 4 | HCP 9 
Bordered by lateral water along the entire left side of the fairway, which slopes significantly from left to right. Fairway bunkers further complicate matters off the tee, so pick your line carefully. Your approach shot will play slightly uphill and you’ll most certainly be dealing with a sidehill lie, so going straight at the pin might be wishful thinking.

15 of 21

PAR 4 | HCP 13 
Hit a long iron to the top of the ridge and you’ll have a good look into this green, which is one of the narrowest at DeLaveaga. The green sits on a slight hill, so your approach will be all carry. Remember to pick enough club. Also keep in mind that missing this green deep would be one of the most costly mental mistakes possible on this course.

16 of 21

PAR 4 | HCP 17 
Try not to worry yourself about the tree-lined ravine that stands between you and the fairway. For the big hitters, this green is reachable. A pair of trees which stand in the center right of the fairway can create a difficult approach into the green, so be careful picking your line off the tee.

17 of 21

PAR 5 | HCP 7 
The last of DeLaveaga’s challenging Par 3’s. Lateral water frames the entire left side. Bunkers surround the green which slopes primarily from left to right, and back to front.

18 of 21

PAR 4 | HCP 3 
The tee shot on this 405 yard Par 4 is basically like trying to hit a ball through the eye of a needle. If you can get past the line of trees on your right and tree-lined hazard on the left, the hole opens up nicely for your approach into the green. Bottom line is long and straight off the tee is the way to play the 16th.

19 of 21

PAR 5 | HCP 11 
This 513 yard, dogleg left Par 5 is reachable in two for big hitters. Driver is the play off the tee, taking aim at the group of trees standing at the right corner of the dogleg. Lateral hazards line the entire left side of this hole so don’t get careless. You will face an uphill approach shot so be sure to take enough club.

20 of 21

PAR 4 | HCP 5 
The finishing hole at DeLaveaga demands your full attention. The play off the tee is driver, aiming down the right center of this right-to-left sloping fairway which will keep you out of the lateral water bordering the entire left side of this hole. Your approach shot will be slightly downhill into a very challenging and undulating two-tiered green.

21 of 21

PAR 5 | HCP 4
Think twice about grabbing the driver out of the bag for this tee shot. The hole is bordered by out of bounds on your left and lateral water on the right. A long iron or hybrid may be the best choice if you plan to stay in this narrow fairway.
