Ever since Yucaipa Valley Golf Club opened in 2000, it has been a popular and affordable tee time for golfers of all ability levels in the Inland Empire and beyond. The course, located 70 miles east of Los Angeles, rambles through a residential development in the shadows of the San Bernardino Mountains. The golf course architectural firm of Rainville & Bye laid out Yucaipa Valley Golf Club on the rolling terrain of what was once a highly productive citrus grove. Trees line many holes on the front nine, while the back nine flows amidst lots of housing. The stunning backdrop of the mountains lends beauty and atmosphere to the playing experience. This par-72 test plays as short as 5,273 yards and as long as 6,803 yards. You ll find three sets of tee markers out on the course plus two additional hybrid playing distances listed on the scorecard. Yucaipa Valley Golf Club is a user-friendly layout that features a nice mix of straightaway and dogleg holes. The fairways are ample and the greens are quick and sloped, but there s not a whole lot of trouble to trip you up. Since Rainville & Bye were rather restrained in their use of bunkers, trees and rough serve as the chief defenses against par at Yucaipa Valley Golf Club. Water enters the fray on four holes, including a couple of par 3s with exciting tee shots over ponds. What makes Yucaipa Valley Golf Club so enjoyable is that none of the challenges are overbearing for the players of diverse skill levels who frequent this course. Practice facilities include a full driving range and two putting greens that include an area where you can hit some chip shots. The clubhouse features a pro shop and a bar & grill with patio seating. It s a popular place to hang out or watch a game. Yucaipa Valley Golf Club is a busy, go-to course for many golfers in the Inland Empire, so make your tee time before the choice time slots all fill up.
