Castle Oaks Golf Club
Castle Oaks Golf Club’s 18-hole, par 71 course carpets 6,739 yards of rolling, oak-studded California countryside. Architect Brad Benz designed the scenic layout, which runs along Sutter and Mule Creeks as it winds through the Preston farmland and cozies up to Preston Castle, a landmark that dates back to 1894. At the beginning, middle, and end, the course sets treacherous obstacles in players’ paths. The first and 10th holes—which are positioned parallel to one another—are buttressed by a quintet of ponds that make tee shots harrowing endeavors, and four ponds hug the 18th fairway to ensure each round ends with dramatic flair.
Before taking to the first tee, clubbers warm up their swings at Castle Oaks’ driving range. Indoor and outdoor dining is available six days a week at Caddy’s Restaurant and Caddy’s Bar, allowing guests to enjoy air conditioning after a particularly hot round or attempt to count each blade of grass on the course’s fairways.
