Diablo Grande Golf & Country Club (Ranch course): GOLF COURSE WAS CLOSED IN 2020. The club's Legends course had previously closed down in 2014. As of 2024, both courses remain closed.

[Original Where2Golf description]: Diablo Grande Golf & Country Club (Ranch course): Diablo Grande (in English "Great Devil") boasted two excellent championship golf courses. Complementing the stunning Nicklaus/Sarazen designed Legends West layout (now closed), the Ranch course (temporarily closed in 2020) provides a further opportunity for a peaceful round of golf amongst the rolling foothills of the Diablo Range.

Also an out-and-back layout, the Ranch plays into three scenic, grassy valleys, with many enjoyable elevation changes along the way. Wonderful scenery aside, the intricacies of Denis Griffiths' challenging design will require your full concentration on the golfing job at hand. In this generally open and expansive environment, a scattering of oaks give some holes a slightly more tree-lined feel, while housing is also more in evidence than on the Legends West layout.

You may find some of the Ranch's fairways unnervingly tight, added to which Griffiths has ensured sand and water are also a constant threat. Salado Creek, winding its way through the course en route to the San Joaquin Valley, is reinforced by several small lakes and ponds. Water hazards feature on more than half the holes.

Among several technically demanding holes, the par-4 10th's sliver of fairway wriggles its way past water left and right. The par-5 12th and 16th holes and the par-4 14th will all require careful study of your yardage book before you attempt the required hop-skip-and-jump over creeks, large and small. One of the Ranch's best sections is "around the turn", where the 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th occupy one of the three grassy canyons.

Did you know?

Diablo Grande is the vision of Donald Panoz, the creator of a worldwide pharmaceuticals business. The master-planned community, resort and winery of Diablo Grande, was originally planned to have six golf courses, a luxury hotel and over 5,000 homes. Two of the golf courses (now both closed), the Legends and the Ranch, were built along with many of the homes.

Diablo Grande is located in the foothills of the Diablo Range, which is part of the Pacific Coastal Ranges in California. The Diablo Range is a largely uninhabited range of hills and mountains stretching almost 200 miles along the west side of the San Joaquin Valley. San Benito Mountain is the range's highest point at an elevation of 5,241 ft (1,597 m).
