Designed by John Harbottle III and George H. Kelley, the Savannah Course is a throwback to the early days of golf architecture in America, importing the character and traditions of the great Scottish Links courses.
The Savannah Course at Stevinson Ranch was completed in September 1995 and the site of the 1996 and 1997 U. S. Open Qualifying. Golf Digest not only rated the course the "Best New Upscale Public Course in California" for 1996, they returned in 1997 to rank it in the "Top 25" of all California courses.
In 2008, we were rated the Best Playing Conditions and Value in the Central California "Valley" by Greenskeeper.org Members & Staff. But perhaps the best award of all has come from those that have played the Savannah Course. Most recently the readers of Golf Digest awarded it 4 1/2 Stars out of a possible five for the overall golf experience. Only Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill of Pebble Beach rated higher in California!!
Many acres of existing wetlands have been preserved and utilized as natural hazards, blending the natural terrain and native grasses with a links touch.
