Golf Nomad Regional Course Rankings: Sacramento Area, CA

This is another part of California I’m still exploring, but most everything I have played around there is pretty enjoyable. In fact, the top three courses on this list are a few of my favorites in all of California.

These rankings are based on my impressions of the overall design, scenery and relative value combined with more measurable elements such as conditioning, facilities and customer service (taking into account my personal experience(s) at the course and general word-of-mouth from reviews/ratings).

Keep in mind when clicking on any active review links below that often I review multiple courses in the same article, so sometimes you have to scroll down in the story to find the course listed here.
