CordeValle Golf Club

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 1999

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.

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.
