The Hill Course, opened in 1926, is a classic design by the famous William P. Bell, whose creations include Ojai, Palos Verdes, San Pedro, Newport Beach and Bel-Air Country Clubs. Wild drives or a sloppy short game will ruin your day on this challenging scenic layout. The course reaches from the Hill Clubhouse just below the Pleasanton Ridge and meanders around the hillside offering spectacular views of the valley below. Be sure your gaze of the scenery shifts to your ball on #17, the 210-yard (Blue Tee) par 3, one of the area's toughest holes. Here you must hit your shot precisely to hold the green.
The Valley Course is a challenge not because of the elevation changes but because of its length, topography and rapid greens. This more easily walked layout offers a combination of accessible fairways along with some shorter more challenging par 4's. Don't be fooled by the yardage of #3, the short 295-yard par 4. To the long hitters this hole might be reachable, but missing it could lead to disaster in the Arroyo. To par this hole requires a perfectly placed tee shot that allows a safe approach to the green.
