Located midway between San Francisco and Sacramento, Paradise Valley Golf Course is a solid public play that won't disappoint. The? golf course, which was designed by Robert Muir Graves and Damian Pascuzzo, opened in 1993 and has been a favorite in the area ever since. It's one half of a two-course offering, with the other one being Rancho Solano, which has a bit more of a country club feel to it. Still, Paradise Valley is no slouch, It plays more than 7,000 yards from the tips, and there are four other sets, starting at just over 5,000 yards to please every level of golfers. Paradise Valley features wide fairways, fair greens, strategic bunkers and water that comes into play on a few holes. There are meandering creeks that come into play, as well as native oaks. And the holes have a lot of variety. Many golfers consider the par-5 10th hole as the signature hole. The 542-yard hole features a lake, a ravine, a large oaks tree and a well-protected green. The 467-yard par-4 18th is pretty memorable two. The course's no. 2 handicap hole, the 18th is a dogleg left with a lake that comes into play on the approach.
