4 Excellent San JoseGolf Courses Page4


Excellent Golf Courses in and Around San Jose

Pasatiempo Golf Club Designed by the famous English architect Alister MacKenzie and steeped in golf history, Pasatiempo consistently ranks No.1 in the Greater San Jose area. Though MacKenzie also designed the renowned Augusta National and Cypress Point Courses, he always claimed that Pasatiempo was his favorite. It’s no wonder then that it was ranked No. 13 in Golf Magazine’s Top 100 Courses You Can Play in 2012. However, to tee off there, you’ll pay the price — $250 per player to be exact. But if you can spare the cash, it’s well worth it for the challenging greens and picturesque scenery. Cinnabar Hills Golf Club Proclaiming itself to provide “The Best Golf in the Silicon Valley” Cinnabar Hills is a three-course estate filled with low, rolling hills, with the borders of the course dotted with dense trees. With fast greens and more break than it first seems, it’s easy to get tripped up by the tricky lies, particularly in the canyon course. With tee times coming in at $49, this may be a more reasonable rate than Pasatiempo, and it’s still a premium golf experience. San Jose Municipal Golf Course If you’re a beginner or simply looking for an excellent course on a budget, The Muni, as it’s sometimes affectionately dubbed, might be for you. Less flat than your typical municipal course (and better

maintained), this course’s $20 daily rate is the best bang for your buck in the area. Not only that, but it’s been fairly recently renovated, with increased yardage and higher difficulty in certain areas. Callippe Preserve If you’re willing to drive out to Pleasanton, Callippe Preserve is another excellent course, especially for its $29 tee times. Following several dynamic ridges and hills, “The premium here is on shotmaking, not length,” as Golf Magazine puts it. Take their par five number 18 hole, for instance, with the Happy Valley Creek twisting three times across the hole. That’s three extremely accurate shots you need to make if you want to stay dry.
