The Valley Club of Montecito


Private course - for members and their invited guests only.
   The Valley Club of Montecito Est. 1929

Where2Golf says: 

The Valley Club of Montecito: This private golf club (open to members and their guests only) is home to one of California's finest golf courses. Usually described as one of Alister MacKenzie's more understated designs, there is nothing understated about the size and quantity of the bunkering that protects the excellent and subtly sloping greens. On many occasions a high-flighted approach is required to clear the bunkering and put you safely onto the fast and true putting surfaces. In a charming and peaceful environment, with pleasant inland views onto the Santa Ynes Mountains, your full repertoire of shots will be called on to score well at this deceptively testing and elegantly laid out course. Straight and accurate driving is demanded on several tee-shots, with large multi-million dollar villas line many of the holes, some of them unnervingly "in range" for anything hit too far offline.
