Sacramento Golf Courses

Sacramento Golf

The Sacramento region of California may be famous for its part in the gold rush, but these days it's more of a golf rush. Located in the northern portion of “The Great Valley” between Roseville and Elk Grove, the Sacramento area is better than great for golfers—it’s amazing. Home to a diverse landscape that trends flat in the Sacramento River Valley and gets quite steep as it approaches the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, Sacramento and its surrounding suburbs truly has a layout fit for everyone. And golfers with an arborist slant will surely love the Western Sycamore tree-line fairways! After booking a discount tee time at one of the Sacramento area’s numerous golf courses, tee time seekers can relax with a signature glass of wine from one of the region’s esteemed vineyards or pop by the capitol building to talk California politics.
