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.

The path to a dependable golf swing starts at Natomas Golf Center, a full-service practice facility where golfers can fine-tune their game until midnight every day of the week. A fully-lit driving range with both mats and grass hitting areas fosters straighter drives, and covered hitting bays keep players safe from inclement weather or screaming eagles convinced that golf balls are their eggs. Golfers can also practice their touch with the putter on an 18-hole putting course and a practice green, or work on their feel around the pin at a chipping area with a practice bunker. To enhance their practice sessions, golfers can enlist an on-site instructor for a private lesson.

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.
