Golf Nomad Regional Course Rankings: San Jose/Silicon Valley, CA

For the purposes of these rankings (because I still have a lot left to play in this region), Silicon Valley includes Santa Clara and San Benito Counties. Here, you will find plenty of golden rolling hills and some very enjoyable golf courses. I can’t wait to explore this area more.

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.
