    Golf Course

Rolling through the foothills, our 18-Hole championship course was designed by Carter Morrish and opened in 1996. This scenic and challenging course features both gentle and dramatic changes in elevation. Breathtaking views are just part of the experience, including dramatic views of the Sierras, Yosemite and a plentiful variety of wildlife. Natural lakes, streams and grasses frame each hole with flashed bleach white bunkers to excite your every shot.

Stretching just over 6,800 yards from the black tees, the championship tees have a slope rating of 137. The mens' tees measure 6,044 yards with a gentle slope rating of 122 and the ladies' tees measure 4,486 yards with a slope rating of 117.

Since opening, the course has received numerous awards, including recognition as the 10th best public access course in the state of California by Golfweek Magazine in 2013. In 1997, Golf Digest voted Saddle Creek the seventh best New Upscale golf course in the U.S. Golf Digest has also rated Saddle Creek four and a half stars. Only Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill are rated higher in California with five stars. It is nice to be in such prestigious company.


The Golf Club at Copper Valley offers a practice facility which is open to guests and members alike. Located just a short walk from the lodge and Bungalows, the practice facility spans over nine acres, including an exclusive short game area with three target/practice greens, an 1,800 square foot putting green and a 30,000 square foot turf practice tee.

Guests staying on the golf package have unlimited access to the practice tee and facility which is refreshed with new range balls three times a year. Target greens are strategically placed along the practice fairway to simulate shots that would be played on our course.

PGA Professional Austin Peters offers golf lessons and instruction to golfers of all levels. You can make an appointment by calling the golf shop at 209.785.3700.

The Driving Range is open daily, except for Wednesday.  Our practice facilities are closed due to weekly maintenance every Wednesday from 11:00am - 2:30pm.  We apologize for any inconvenience.  Contact the golf shop for seasonal hours of operation.
