Last month, we shone the spotlight on Timber Creek and Sierra Pines in Sun City, Roseville. This time, we’re taking a break to explore the wonders of the Lincoln Hills Golf Club in Lincoln, CA. Whether you’re a beginner or you’ve been in the game for a long time, Lincoln Hills will definitely pique your interest. Let’s get started!
About Lincoln Hills Golf Club
Located in Lincoln, Lincoln Hills is billed as one of the finest golf courses in the Greater Sacramento area. Its first course, an 18-hole beauty borne out of a collaboration between golf course designers Billy Casper and Greg Nash, was first opened to the public in 1999.
About six years later, a second golf course was added. These courses are known as the Hills course and the Orchard course.
Lincoln Hills Golf Club offers tee times to the public every day of the week, but several membership options are available for those who would like an elevated golf experience in the club. Check this page for more information about& memberships in Lincoln Hills.
The Golf Courses
We’ve already mentioned the names of Lincoln Hills’ courses. It’s time to get to know them better before you schedule a tee.
The Hills Course
Not for the faint of heart, the Hills course offers players a challenging play with its unique assortment of golf holes. 18-hole and 6,853 yards, the Hills course is set in a picturesque landscape defined by greens and even wetlands. As a player who aspires to score well, the Sun City Lincoln Hills golf course challenges you to observe close scrutiny to the pin sheet and exercise sound course management. Good luck!
The Orchard Course
Like its older brother, the Orchard Course is spread across a stunning landscape complete with lush, rolling hills and wetlands. Its fairways are expansive and its corridors generous, giving a feeling of openness. Still, don’t let the Orchard Course’s aesthetic appeal lure you away from your real goal: to score well. To have a great play, take note of its collection of hazards, which includes the course’s groves of redwood, oak, and pine trees.
Birds are also known to frequently visit the Orchard Course, adding to its collection of risk/reward challenges. Appreciate the beauty, but keep your head in the game, particularly in the course’s long and challenging par 4s.
