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

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.
