Set on a beautiful piece of Northern California land overlooking the century-old Preston Castle, Castle Oaks Golf Club in Ione, California, is a par 71, 18-hole golf course that is a favorite among locals. Golf architect Brad Benz brilliantly routed Castle Oaks in a way that utilizes the rolling topography around Ione to create exciting golf holes. Castle Oaks also features numerous elevated elevation changes that offer fantastic views of the Preston Castle. Stretching 6,739 yards, Castle Oaks is a great test of length, with no hole presenting a greater challenge than the first hole. Measuring 577 yards, the par 5, 1st hole at Castle Oaks is a slight dogleg right with two water hazards guarding both sides of the fairway. With that and a multitude of other exceptional holes, Castle Oaks Golf Club is one of the best destinations for golfers in Northern California.
