Welcome to Rustic Canyon Golf Course
Opening in 2002 to rave reviews, Rustic Canyon Golf Course is a tribute to the very roots of the game with a lay-of-the-land creation by Gil Hanse Golf Design. Built without detailed blueprints or working drawings, Hanse shaped the large contoured, free-form green complexes and sculpted the bunkers from the natural landscape preserving and incorporating into the design the native barrancas. The canyon hills are dotted with sagebrush, cactus, waves of brome, and stipa grass highlighted by a few picturesque oaks.
Challenging the Rustic Canyon layout is an exercise in restraint, with flat, wide-open fairways that fade into the native surroundings and bunkers edged with shaggy eyebrows of thick, drooping fescue. The ground game is critical as the greens play to a bump & run approach. Rustic Canyon is a strategic course for golfers who savor the discovery of a proper approach position on an expansive fairway to best attack the green depending on the pin location.
