China Lake Golf Course, is a Military, 18 hole golf course located in China Lake, California.
The China Lake Golf Course first opened for play in 1956. The course was designed by William F. Bell.
Located on Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake, Calif., the China Lake Golf Course is a pinnacle for golfers in the High Desert. China Lake is in a beautiful valley setting, where year-round golfing is the norm. The challenging 18-hole layout incorporates many water and sand hazards, and includes a full-practice facility. Even though this course was built on flat terrain, it is still very demanding. There are many greenside sand bunkers incorporated into the course's design. The PGA Qualifying Tournament was held here in 1994, as well as The Players West Tournament.
The 18th hole is a challenging par-5 that longer hitters can reach in two. The tee box sets up with a view of the new clubhouse, while two bunkers and a lake on the right side guard the green.
