Detailed description

Shadow Lakes Golf Club is a Public, 18-hole golf course located in Brentwood, California.

Shadow Lakes golf course first opened for play in 2001. Gary Roger Baird designed the par-71 layout.

With Mount Diablo providing a stunning backdrop, Shadow Lakes Golf Club offers panoramic views of the East Bay Area, from the Diablo Range in the west to the San Joaquin Valley in the east. Designed in a classic architectural style, Shadow Lakes is a bold design combining traditional course features with contemporary ones. The golf course showcases dramatic elevation change, native grasses that outline each hole, natural boulder outcroppings, and sharply sculpted bunkers. #16 is a great signature hole with an island green. The links-style characteristics from four sets of tees make for a challenging yet rewarding round of golf time after time, no matter your skill level; so everyone will have a great outing on the course.

Black tees: 6,710 yards, 72.0 / 136. Gold tees: 6,327 yards, 70.5 / 134. Men's Silver tees: 5,962 yards, 68.9 / 128. Women's Silver tees: 5,962 yards, 74.2 / 130. Women's Jade tees: 5,402 yards, 71.4 / 123.


The course announced on its website in December 2015 that-

At this time, they would be limiting golf play to their sister course - Deer Ridge Golf Club, and eliminating daily play at the Shadow Lakes Golf Club on a "temporary basis" beginning December 1, 2015. This was done to enable them to address the state water crisis and focus much of their remaining resources primarily on Deer Ridge.  Deer Ridge remained open.


Although the state is no longer experiencing drought conditions, the decision was made in early 2017 to close the course. There is also talk that Shadow Lakes and Deer Ridge Golf Clubs will merge into one 18-hole layout and develop senior living facilities where golf holes and a clubhouse currently exist.
