Located in East Contra Costa County, Discovery Bay Country Club offers members and their guests all the luxuries commensurate with a quality, private club at an affordable price. The centerpiece for Discovery Bay is the 18-hole championship golf course, designed by architect, Ted Robinson.
At the Forest Meadows Golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., golfers can traverse long fairways bordered with oaks and pines as they play 18 challenging holes. After avoiding water hazards and treacherous sand traps, players can stop by the driving range to hone their skills or pick up new gear at the pro shop.
Though the course is surrounded by vineyards in California's Central Valley, rounds at Micke Grove Golf Links aren't all cheese and crackers. Each obstacle on the links-style layout?including eight different lakes and 42 sand bunkers?ensure that every shot poses its own set of risks, such as losing a golf ball to the watery depths or waking the ancient mummies beneath the sand. Course architect Garrett Gill's choreography reaches a climax on the signature 5th hole, where tee shots must clear 179 yards of water in order to reach the green unharmed.
