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.

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.

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

Ken Sawitzky’s lifelong devotion to golf began in 1958, when he studied under the tutelage of Johnny Goodman, the last amateur to win the U.S. Open. Since then, his golf career has blossomed like a greenside bougainvillea, encompassing 15 years of experience correcting swings, smoothing out putts, and framing interestingly shaped divots. Ken started teaching golf at Lighthouse G.C. in West Sacramento and moved to Wildhorse G.C. in 2003 when Lighthouse was closed. Ken now splits his time conducting golf classes for the Davis Parks and Recreation Department, tirelessly searching for new score-shaving methods to sprinkle upon the unsown swings of his pupils.
