Winner: Industry Hills Golf Club at Pacific Palms Resort, City of Industry
This was a close call, but Industry Hills is a deserving winner. The reigning recipient of the National Golf Course Owners Association’s Course of the Year award, the facility has so many things in its favor — two stunning layouts (the Ike and the Babe), awesome scenery, a plethora of amenities and spectacular service. Industry Hills has established
itself as a fixture in the Los Angeles area and figures to be a popular choice among local golfers for years to come.
Tijeras Creek Golf Club, Rancho Santa Margarita
Many unique characteristics of this Ted Robinson-designed course resonated with voters, but what stood out was the venue’s diversity between its nines — the front is a resort-style layout, while the back is a testing mission that winds its way through mountains and canyons.
Pelican Hill Golf Club, Newport Coast
Few courses have risen to the status of national ambassador for the region like Pelican Hill. The 36-hole venue epitomizes Southern California golf — sheer beauty, oceanfront scenery, and a buzz that comes from having a pair of layouts crafted and refurbished by modern design leader Tom Fazio.
