Before Manifest Destiny and the Gold Rush took hold, the land now occupied by Whitney Oaks Golf Club was home to the native Maidu culture's Nisenan. In 1857, George Whitney established Whitney Ranch after purchasing 320 acres of grazing land for his sheep. Exactly 140 years later—once all of Mr. Whitney's sheep had graduated college—Whitney's old ranch officially became Whitney Oaks Golf Club.
Owned and operated by the United Auburn Indian community, the club envelops rounds with thousands of majestic oaks and an abundance of well-placed bunkers. Large granite outcroppings make for tricky shots on certain holes, and the wetland-rich topography adds to the unpredictability of the layout. Prior to stepping foot on the course, golfers can also squeeze in some practice thanks to a 15-station driving range, putting green, and pitching area.
