Detailed description

Black Gold Golf Club is a Public 18 hole golf course located in the foothills of Yorba Linda, California. Black Gold is tucked in between the Chino Hills State Park and the Vista Del Verde residential community on the north side of Yorba Linda, off either Yorba Linda Blvd, or Imperial Highway.

The foothills of Yorba Linda provide golfers the chance to discover gold, Black Gold that is. Black Gold Golf Club is an Arthur Hills-designed golf course and its name is a by-product of its location that used to be a Shell Oil Field. The course opened for play in 2001.

Par for the course is 72. From the back tees the course plays to 6,756 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 4,937 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 18, a par-5 that plays to 535 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 7, a par-3 that plays to 167 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 5, a 449 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Black Gold is # 10, a 194 yard par-3.

Black Gold Golf Club is a challenging layout with several water features, including a stunning waterfall off the 18th green, slight elevation changes, rolling hills, and strategic bunkering. The fairways are extremely soft here, sometimes a little wet, and don't get much roll, the greens also hold shots well. On a clear day golfers can view the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island from several points along the course. The 12th teebox provides the best panoramic views, as it is the highest elevation point of any golf course in Orange County.
