Some of the Best Golfing Facilities in Orange County
Although for some people golf is nothing more than a “good walk spoiled” it doesn’t stop thousands of avid golfers from taking a tee shot or two every year and doing the rounds on some of the splendid golfing facilities in Orange County. You really can’t get a much better location to spoil a good walk can you? There’s the beautiful scenery, the fabulous weather – at least for the majority of the time – and some of the finest golfing facilities around.
Tustin Ranch Golf Club – is regarded by many as one of the finest facilities in the area. The 6,803 yard, par 72 championship standard course really sets the bar high and quickly established itself as one of the premier golfing facilities in Orange County.
The course is littered with towering palm trees and well placed lakes making the golf course incredibly beautiful and not without its challenges on many of the holes. It’s one of those “turn up and play” golf courses where members and non members are welcome just the same built on the premise of “public play whilst enjoying a very private feel” . . . although you could read that two ways! Locals and visitors all agree on one thing – this is a great place for a round of golf.
There is a dress code at the golf club – you don’t have to wear a dress but you also will not be permitted to play if you are wearing a t-shirt, tank top or cut offs.
Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club – is another favorite haunt for Californian golfers. It was originally carved and designed to fit in with the natural landscape next to the beautiful Ladera Ranch Land Conservancy. After just six short years it is already a firm favorite thanks to its playability, it’s value for money and the excellent standard of customer service. The natural terrain has helped to create a challenging layout which really sorts out the men from the boys, or the women from the girls . . . you’ve got to be so careful to treat everybody equally these days.
Pelican Hill Golf Club – has got lots of awards and ranks highly on the lists of many golf magazines as a readers favorite and it’s easy to understand why. The green fees aren’t within everybody’s budget at a whopping $250 (if reserved within two weeks) or $270 (if reserved further in advance) but the $495 price tag at Pebble Beach makes it look increasingly affordable. The prestigious clubhouse and restaurant enjoys truly magnificent views across nearby Crystal Cove – what a setting to enjoy a well earned drink and a bite to eat after a round of golf.
It goes without saying that golfers need plenty of room in the trunk and riverside fiat have got a great selection of nice, roomy cars perfect for carrying their clubs. In the interests of fuel economy however, don’t carry your golf clubs with you everywhere you go “just in case” – the extra weight will make you use up more gas, even if you do like to have your clubs ready at a moment’s notice.
So if you’re one of the thousands of golfing enthusiasts who visit Orange County each year you know where to go to get in a great round of golf . . . and if you’re one of the golfing enthusiasts who are fortunate enough to live here you know where to go to purchase your next motor – check out some of the great models at OC Fiat and make sure that there’s plenty of trunk space.
