Detailed description

The Lincoln Hills Club, is a Public, 36 hole golf course located facility located in Lincoln, California.

The Lincoln Hills Golf Club first opened for play 1999 as an 18-hole, Billy Casper and Greg Nash-designed golf course.

In 2004, another nine holes were built, with the last nine completed in the summer of 2005. The final two nines, designed by Greg Nash, are incorporated into the original course thereby creating two 18-hole layouts (The Hills and The Orchard Courses) with traditional out-and-back configurations.

Both course's have wide open fairways. The course rests among the rolling hills and natural wetlands common to this part 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.

The Orchard Course is best defined by its long and challenging par 4's. However, its the short par-4 sixth hole that allows 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.

The Hills Course, challenges golfers with an assortment of golf holes ranging from risk/reward par 5s to bombs-away par 4s, but it's arguably the par 3s 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.
