Golf Courses in Victorville, CA

Golf legends Arnold Palmer, Sam Snead and Jack Nicklaus all played golf in the High Desert, specifically at Hesperia Golf & Country Club.

Hesperia, which opened in 1957, was a frequent stop on the annual PGA tour and today is rated a 3.5-star course by Golf Digest. In addition, California Golf Magazine has ranked the course as one of the top 25 in The Golden State.

But Hesperia is just one of several top golf venues situated in Victor Valley. The High Desert is lucky to feature ideal year-round weather that results in excellent course conditions, including some of the smoothest greens in public golf.

The city of Victorville is home the 18-hole venue Green Tree Golf Course, which opened as a private club in 1963 and was later deeded to the city. It is a challenging test of shot-making at par 72 and more than 6,600 yards, with water hazards, tree-lined fairways and sand traps sprinkled along the way.

The High Desert also offers golfers a couple of nine-hole options. Ashwood Golf Course in Apple Valley actually has 27 holes that allow players to golf three distinct nine-hole courses. It is easily accessible from Interstate 15 and managed by the well-known Billy Casper Golf group.

Meanwhile, Tees & Trees Golf Course in Barstow provides nine holes among beautiful scenery. This tight course has water hazards that come into play on holes No. 3 and No. 5.
