Rancho Golf Course - Greg Norman Design

GOLF COURSE

Greg Norman Golf Course Design

Greg Norman has created a multi-themed layout that features sweeping ocean holes and strategically placed Shark Shacks with state of the art golf carts creating a one of a kind experience. The site’s contours and topography, he said, are ideal for the routing of a world-class course. Spanning three different ecosystems, the golf course meanders through a thick cactus forest creased by canyon-like arroyos before descending to enormous windswept dunes. The 7,260-yard, par-72 layout also has seven holes on the beach, notably the par-3 third, which parallels the sea and will give players fine views of breaching whales during the winter months.
