In 1965, the twists and traps of Ancil Hoffman Golf Course were born from the brain of course architect William Francis Bell. Bell's approximately 200 course designs also include the South Course at Torrey Pines, a La Jolla course that was selected to host the U.S. Open in 2008. Ancil Hoffman is replete with watery views, including lateral water hazards on holes 1 and 10. Additionally, the Merle Priddy Memorial grass driving range runs next to the American River, offering golfers a place to perfect their swings using Nike practice balls. Practice facilities also include two large putting and chipping greens.

Led by PGA director of golf instruction Eric Pollard, the instructional programming at the course is based on a teaching method Pollard designed himself after years working with California golf instructors Eddie Merrins and Carl Welty. In addition to adult lessons, Ancil Hoffman Golf Course offers camps where juniors can develop their swings and grow into kilts made of the family tartan under the watch of a professional instructor.

Since 1958, players have migrated to Cordova Golf Course in order to try their hands, woods, and putters at the public course's 18 holes and to calibrate their swings at the driving range or with lessons. PGA professional Jacob Marta tailors swing instruction to an individual's needs and physical limitations, helping golfers attain their own natural, repeatable swing motion. Creating a comfortable, encouraging atmosphere, Jacob also takes his instruction onto the course, where he helps players knock strokes off their scorecards. The same atmosphere extends to junior clinics, in which youngsters can learn all facets of the game, including rules and basic etiquette.

Spanning about 4,832 yards, the course challenges golfers of all skill levels with well placed trees and three lakes boasting the combined gravitational pull of a small planet. A smooth cart path allows players to ferry their clubs swiftly from hole to hole, or head over to the clubhouse to catch a drink or meal at Stu's Bar and Grill. Cordova Golf Course also houses an illuminated driving range where golfers can launch Srixon range balls or calcified tangerines off of grass and mat hitting areas.

Each round at Antelope Greens? 3,250-yard, par 58 executive course takes club-toting quorums careening across a lush tapestry of tree-lined fairways and intervening waterways. Golfers can jump-start days of rapidly escalating one-upmanship with stints at the driving range. There, players can hit personal supplies of 80 balls off of all-grass hitting stalls and play games of longest ball, closest to the target, and most disastrous grass stain. Rented golf carts zip through the sinuous landscape, dropping off golfers by their desired tees and further expediting the already condensed rounds, which divoteers can expect to finish in 3.5 hours or less. Misguided spheres run the risk of falling prey to aquatic hazards throughout the course, most notably on the par 3 seventh, where tee shots must carry water on their way to an oval green girded on all sides by precarious pools. A course map offers an aerial view of the 18 holes and their encroaching waterways, allowing duffers to map out their plans of attack or scuba-diving destinations.

Golf balls blast off from tee boxes before falling gently onto the greens at Bradshaw Ranch Golf Course, where players can hone short-game skills across a nine-hole, par 3 layout with holes ranging from 84 to 218 yards in length. Confident swings are rewarded on the third and fourth holes, where tee shots must soar above ponds and get clearance from earthworm air-traffic controllers in order to reach the green safely. Golfers looking to improve their swing can head to the pro shop to stock up on the latest gear.

Bradshaw Ranch Golf Course also offers the new, exciting sport of footgolf to its players. Played just like golf except using a soccer ball, players "tee off" at the teeing ground, kicking the ball down the fairway all while negotiating hazards and trying to reach a 21-inch cup set adjacent to the putting greens. Soccer cleats are not allowed on the golf course, but indoor soccer shoes or turf soccer shoes are recommended.

A 27-hole complex comprised of a championship-length 18-hole course, a 9-hole executive layout, and a multifaceted practice area, Bing Maloney Golf Course raises clubbers from beginner to pro. Generous fairways characterize the 18-hole layout, though the course still boasts a handful of tricky tee shots. At the par 4 12th hole?a 440-yarder considered one of the course's most difficult?golfers must wrap their drives around the outstretched catchers' mitts of an immense oak tree to have a decent look at the distant green. Bing Maloney's 9-hole executive course lets golfers hunt pins in pared-down, time-efficient rounds, and its 40-station, lighted driving range hosts swing sessions during the day and after hours.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 6,569 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 69.5 from the back tees
  • Slope rating of 119 from the back tees
  • Four sets of tees per hole

Atlee Anders' golf career has come full-circle. She started out at the age of ten learning from her family of sports enthusiasts how to play golf, but also how to have fun and demonstrate class while competing. Atlee's love for the game took her through four years as a varsity letter-winner in high school and then to a year of college play at Sierra College, before placing her in position to teach others all that she has learned.

As a teaching apprentice pursuing certification as a LPGA Class A pro, Atlee, along with a team of instructors correct poor swing mechanics, align putting strokes, and show players how to break up with a toxic golf ball, but above all they motivate their students to love the game. Perhaps most telling of their passion is the time spent involved with The First Tee programs, wherein they teach life skills and values to juniors through the game of golf.
