courseCrystal Springs Golf CourseIn an area known for exclusive private clubs, Deep Cliff Golf Course is a well-run daily fee course with a reputation for playability and hospitality. Designed by Clark Glasson in 1962, Deep Cliff is a comfortable, easily walked course that is abundant with wildlife. Rabbit, deer, and the occasional quail (our state bird) are seen quite frequently as you make your way along our 18.
With Stevens Creek winding through the course, Deep Cliff has quickly become the finest 18-hole executive golf course in Northern California. Tucked inland from San Francisco, this quiet setting is a break from the hustle and bustle of city life and provides a beautiful ambiance for players of every skill level. An excellent course to exercise your irons, this par 60 has 12 par 3's and 6 par 4's. There are also three sets of tee's to challenge every level of player.

"Every hole here is a great experience", according to Tom Schlichting, Tournament Director at Deep Cliff Golf Course.

Your day will begin by walking down a 25-foot ramp towards the first hole that is placed directly between number 9 and 18. A dogleg right that is 271 yards from the back tee and your first glimpse of the Steven's Creek, which is seen throughout the entire course. You can use a driver but a less club is probably better off the tee. On your approach, beware of the bunkers that guard the slightly tiered green.

According to Schlichting, perhaps the best par 3 on the course is the fourth hole, a short 164 yarder from the elevated back tee. " When you do tee off the hole seems to play farther than is actually is, a good club selection is crucial to start off your round" said Schlichting.

The toughest hole on the course is debatable, but the sixth hole offers many challenges. A seemingly straight shot to the green, but in order to get there you have to negotiate Steven's Creek off the drive and then avoid the many bunkers along the way. The green is slightly hidden to the right as pine, oak and sycamore trees line the fairway.

The shortest par three on the course is the eighth hole, a sure bet to gain back a stroke with a solid shot onto the green. A few bunkers are the only things that stand between you and your birdie.

After making the turn and getting a quick refill of your favorite beverage, you will then tee up then #10, our qualifying hole for the hole-in-one shoot out. 142 yards from the back tee, a straight shot with minimal hazards to deal with.

"The best par 4 on the course is #15," said Schlichting. A dogleg left that is 289 yards from the back tee (longest hole on the course) with a hidden green that is concealed by large redwoods that tower over the fairway. "A very birdieable hole, if you have the long drive to get you there" said Schlichting.

Finishing up your great round of golf, #18 is a long par 3 that has an elevated tee box overlooking the clubhouse. The championship hole for the hole-in-one shoot out, #18 offers a straight shot to the green but is surrounded by 2 large bunkers with inescapable lips. The entire hole is surrounded by trees as there is a very narrow fairway leading to the final green.
