Detailed description

Cinnabar Hills Golf Club is a Public, 27 hole golf facility located in San Jose, California, located in the hills overlooking the Coyote Valley, in San Jose's Silicon Valley. Cinnabar Hills has three (3) 9-hole courses: The Mountain Course, The Canyon Course, and The Lake Course. These can be combined in 3 different combinations of 18 hole championship golf.

The Cinnabar Hills Golf Courses opened for play in 1998. The courses were designed by John Harbottle.

The design work allows for varying degrees of golfing skills and alternate means of reaching the greens. Nearly every hole has a receptive side to approach the putting surface and an opposing, shorter, more demanding angle into the flagstick. The skill and confidence level of the golfer will determine his or her strategy of how best to play into the green.

The name (Cinnabar Hills) comes from the rich, red ore that was once mined in the area. The courses were carved in and around the hills, which preserved the natural character of the land. Each of these courses is named, for the most part, after its terrain simulation.

The Lake Course has six water hazards which come into play.

The Canyon Course concentrates more on sand bunkers, of which there are twenty seven.

The Mountain Course has a very hilly terrain and makes negotiating the greens difficult. No matter what combination a golfer plays, there will always be a great challenge.
