Dairy Creek designed by architect John Harbottle (Stevenson Ranch, Genoa Lakes) offers an unforgettable “links style” golf experience nestled in the El Chorro Valley. This “player’s course” is characterized by significant elevation changes, rolling hills, forced carries and rocky arroyos.
The Bermuda fairways are tight and the gently undulating Bent Grass greens will put the steadiest stroke to the test. The course includes many water hazards and bunkers. The par 71 course rises and falls 300 feet twice, offering enchanting views of the surrounding El Chorro Valley. Dairy Creek is considered one of the most challenging courses in the area.
The course sits amongst rolling hills below majestic Hollister Peak. Pennington Creek meanders through the front nine and Dairy Creek through the back. The Audobon Cooperative Sanctuary course adheres to environmentally sensitive mandate and operates in harmony with it’s natural surroundings. Birds of prey, wild turkeys, deer and other wild life abound.
Dairy Creek is the newest of the County owned golf courses and has a new pro shop, snack bar and a restaurant, which is open for breakfast and lunch 365 days a year. Fairways at Dairy Creek’s banquet room is large and a favorite for tournament celebrations.
