Gilroy Golf Course – Gilroy, CA
Holes: 18 Par: 70 Yardage: 6004
The Santa Clara county golf course has been dubbed the “Best 11 hole golf course in the U.S.”. But don’t let the “11 hole thing” scare you away. This course can be played as a nine hole course for a quick round during the day or challenge yourself with 18 holes. On the back nine, you play seven of the same holes that you played on the front nine but from different lengths and angles, plus two different holes that you didn’t play the first time around.
Hole #7 is an uphill par 5 with a double tiered green and hole #8 is a beautiful downhill par 3. On the back nine you will go “around the hill” with two par 4’s #16 and #17. The Santa Clara county golf course is a par 70 (35 on each side) and can be played from 5200 yds to just over 6000 yds. The serene setting in the still unspoiled Uvas Valley makes you feel as you are miles away from the hustle and bustle of a big city.
