Our Courses – Lincoln Hills (Hills & Orchard)
Lincoln Hills Golf Club is one of the greater Sacramento area’s finest golfing facilities. Lincoln Hills first appeared on Northern California’s public golf scene in 1999 as an 18-hole, Billy Casper/Greg Nash-designed golf course. In 2005, a second 18 hole course was unveiled creating two distinct layouts with traditional out-and-back configurations.
Generous corridors and expansive fairways impart a feeling of openness as the layout unfolds over the rolling hills and natural wetlands common to this part of Placer County. Manicured fairways are framed by daunting hazards and pockets of pine, oak and redwood trees that add to the golf course’s aesthetic appeal.
Through the years, Lincoln Hills Golf Club has successfully hosted competitive events such as the 2003 LPGA Tour’s Longs Drug Challenge and more recently the 2008 NCAA Ladies West Regional Golf Tournament, as well as hundreds of other local charity and corporate events.
The Hills Course
The Hills Course challenges golfers with an assortment of golf holes ranging from risk/reward par 5’s to bomb away par 4’s, but it’s arguably the par 3’s that reflect the character of this 6,853 yard track. For example, the par-3 12th plays downhill with wetlands to the right and behind the green. The hole is as picturesque as it is challenging, and like many of the holes on The Hills course, close scrutiny to the day’s pin sheet as well as sound course management are required to score well.
The Orchard Course
The generous corridors and expansive fairways of the Orchard Course impart a feeling of openness as the layout unfolds over the rolling hills and natural wetlands common to this neck of Placer County, California. Manicured fairways are framed by daunting hazards and pockets of pine, oak and redwood trees that add to the golf course’s aesthetic appeal as well as to the risk/reward challenges.
Although The Orchard Course is best defined by its long and challenging par 4’s, it’s the short par-4 sixth hole that attracts the most birdies. A variety of waterfowl such as Egrets, Herons and Canadian Geese have chosen to roost in a large oak situated behind the green.
