Tucked amid the shadows of eucalyptus trees and mexican palms, Buena Vista Golf Course roams across 6,710 yards of dramatically undulating terrain. Throughout the par-72 layout, golfers grapple with uneven lies wrought by the hilly topography, as well as large, contoured greens that require a soft touch with the putter. As players make their way from tee to green, hillcrests offer glimpses of the surrounding farmland, the two lakes that comprise Buena Vista Aquatic Recreation Center, and distant mountains as they ripple out into the horizon and hide the unsightly edge of the earth. Guests looking to polish their game can consult Buena Vista's two PGA Class A professionals, who offer private lessons and club-fitting services.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par-72 course

  • Total length of 6,710 yards from the back tees

  • Course rating of 72.9 from the back tees

  • Slope rating of 124 from the back tees

  • Four sets of tees per hole

Though it isn't plural by name, Valley Oaks Golf Course is more than just one golf course?in fact, it's three. The trio of classic 9-hole layouts invites golfers to play a variety of 18-hole rotations. Framed by native oak, eucalyptus, and tall pine trees, the three nines test golfers of all levels with narrow fairways and score-ravaging water hazards. That's especially true of the Lakes course?the newest of the three?as a lake comes into play on multiple holes. But these obstacles don't just challenge traditional golfers; they also affect games of FootGolf, a sport that combines elements of golf with those of soccer. The game largely heeds golf rules, though players kick soccer balls?or golf balls they've been pumping full of protein for awhile?into 21-inch-diameter cups. Ensuring the course is up to snuff for FootGolf play, Valley Oaks is an official course of the American FootGolf League.

Originally sculpted into the California countryside in 1928, Lemoore Golf Course’s 18-hole, par 72 course stretches across 6,591 yards of lush greenery and challenging hazards. A moderately difficult layout when played from the back tees, the course features four tee options to cater to both bona fide aces and disoriented golfers who can’t differentiate between a three-wood and a hardened mannequin leg. The golf complex also fosters sound swing mechanics with an on-site driving range and practice green. Clubbers can take refuge from the sun-soaked fairways or undead divot tools at the course’s cozy bar and grill, or peruse a stock of the latest golf gear and equipment at the pro shop.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course

  • Length of 6,591 yards from the farthest tees

  • Course rating of 70.9 from the farthest tees

  • Slope rating of 125 from the farthest tees

  • Four tee options

At Monarch Dunes Golf Club, the links-style golf of coastal Britannia stretches out in the hills of California. Amid windswept dunes and eucalyptus trees sweep coastal views speckled with amber hillsides and big blue skies. And this is just how architects Damian Pascuzzo and PGA Tour Pro Steve Pate wanted it. But they also wanted something beyond beautiful vistas. They wanted a unique 30-hole arena that tested the mettle of golfers.

On the 6,810-yard, par-71 Old Course, players unleash the full potential of their swings on the open expanses of the longer front nine before dialing back for close control on the back nine?a shorter tract made formidable by water hazards on all but two holes. Though the two halves have their own distinct flavors, both begin with mid-length par-4s. These are the course's two most difficult holes, so savvy golfers should spend extra time before the round and at the turn to give their driver an encouraging massage.

While the Old Course is a grassy homage to golf's most sacred traditions, Monarch Dunes' Challenge Course charts a much more unorthodox path?and not just in its unconventional 12-hole layout. While some par-3 courses are known as "pitch-and-putts" for their short holes, The Challenge?named among the Top 10 Par-3 Courses by Golf.com?will have some reaching for a driver or three-wood on holes 5 and 12, which measure 242 and 202 yards respectively. Golfers can expect to finish the round in two hours or less, freeing up plenty of time to relax at the Butterfly Grille or shop for flame decals to glue onto their golf bag.

At Blacklake Golf Resort, players can choose any combination of challenges from three distinct nine-hole courses, each representing a unique feature of playing golf within the varied landscape of the Central Coast. Sea breezes drift up from the valley to the Canyons course's elevated tee boxes. The Oaks course ventures away from the clubhouse to wind through a forest of towering oak trees, its undulating grass and smooth walkways shaded by the abundant branches of those mighty oaks. To begin the Lakes course, a short, 143-yard hole heralds the inviting nature of the compact layout and wide fairways, all before a monstrous 573-yard par 5 finishes the round.

Open from dawn to dusk, Blacklake Golf Resort also features practice facilities, including a 275-yard driving range and two putting, chipping, and pitching greens on which to improve your techniques. During lessons, the staff (http://blacklake.com/staff/) of PGA professionals works to improve players' fundamentals without sacrificing the fun, relaxing nature of the sport.

Course at a Glance:

* Three nine-hole courses (par 36, 36, and 35)

* Total yardages from the back tees: 3,276, 3,125, and 2,909

* Three sets of tees per hole
