In her prime, Amy Alcott was considered one of the most driven and focused golfers in the LPGA. Her ability to perform in the clutch resulted in 29 tournament victories, including her 1991 victory at the Kraft Nabisco in Rancho Mirage, punctuated by her subsequent dive into the murky depths aside the 18th hole. For her first outing as a course-design consultant, she teamed with course architect Casey O’Callaghan, who recently completed another course with Tom Lehman in Mission Viejo.
“Amy’s attention was on the aesthetics of the golf course,” O’Callaghan says. “It was her first design project, and she was very focused on how the course was viewed. She was tremendous to work with and had a great deal to offer.”
The result is a public course that plays like a private sanctuary: At 6,550 yards, the par-72 course features five par-5 holes, four lakes (no Alcott-diving, please), rolling vistas, nearly 1,000 palm trees, and deep bunkering that will prove your mettle.
Tee times: 327-6550
