Where2Golf says: 

CordeValle Golf Club: Quietly tucked away in a stunningly scenic corner of the Santa Clara Valley, CordeValle is an exclusive and intimate resort. Within this large private preserve, which skirts the foothills of the Santa Cruz mountains, Robert Trent Jones Jr has crafted one of his most memorable layouts.

The picturesque round-topped hills of the valley are reflected in the soft natural flowing lines of this golfing masterpiece. Unencumbered by residential or commercial development, the layout makes excellent use of the terrain's gentle elevation changes, its broad meadows and grassy canyons. Each hole presents a different vista onto the wooded north-facing hillsides and more open south-facing slopes beyond the course.

The beauty of the environment is matched by the charm, challenge and elegance of the course itself. The generally quite open layout is home to plenty of stylish bunkering, pleasant elevation changes, and occasional creeks and ponds. Stray beyond the good-width fairways and you'll have the chance to inspect an abundance of thickish grass, wild plants and native flowers that expansively separate the holes.

CordeValle is an excellent example of Robert Trent Jones Jr's visionary design abilities. His aim is to touch our hearts and inspire our golfing brains with a rare and unforgettable golf experience. Here at CordeValle it is certainly a case of mission accomplished.

Stay & Play: on-site accommodation is available in luxury guest rooms, bungalows & villas (see Where2Stay section below).

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
