Bighorn Golf Club


Private course - for members and their invited guests only.
   Bighorn Golf Club Est. 1991

Where2Golf says: 

Bighorn Golf Club: This private golf club (open to members and their guests only) is home to two of the area's most famous championship courses - the Canyons and Mountains courses. Completed in 1998, Bighorn's Canyons course was designed by Tom Fazio and includes wide, rolling fairways, plenty of water features and a less undulating character than its counterpart. The meandering layout climbs in altitude and culminates in a fabulous three-part challenge, with the uphill par-5 16th, tricky par-3 17th with its carry over a canyon, and finally the daunting and dramatically downhill par-4 18th. The Mountains course, designed by Arthur Hills, edges into the Santa Rosa Mountains, providing wonderful views from its higher elevations. Laid out over rugged terrain this exacting design brings large rocky outcrops into play, as well as several holes with dramatic elevation changes. Both Canyons and Mountains courses have hosted top-level PGA and LPGA professional tour events.
