Years ago, the tule elk roamed the lands surrounding Stockton, bellowing "Fore!" during the rutting season and carving golf holes into the untamed earth with its antlers. Named in honor of that majestic creature, the Elkhorn Golf Club maintains 18 holes on immaculately manicured, generally level grounds. Golfers conquer Tyee 007 bentgrass greens—the same used by US Open site The Olympic Club—which can be mowed low and quick, and roll true and smooth. After a round or two, parties can pile into the Elkhorn Grill for pub fare paired with a frosty craft beer.
