California is known for its miles of coastline, amazing cities and diverse array of activities for outdoor lovers. The Sierra Nevada mountain range is home to luscious green forests, beautiful lakes, waterfalls and best of all, championship golf. In the city of Copperopolis, a charming town reminiscent of the gold mining era, pin seekers will find a modern gem — the Saddle Creek Resort.
The Resort consists of bungalow style cabins lined along the first and ninth holes of its championship 18-hole golf course. The golf course takes visitors on a tour of magnificent vistas featuring views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, local flora and glassy lakes. An interesting aspect of the course is its design; there are no two holes that run along each other. This gives the essence of total isolation — just man, golf and the wilderness. The city of Copperopolis also has plenty to offer. Having been a mining town, the city is packed with history of the gold rush, which is a truly large piece of the Californian wilderness culture.
The Saddle Creek Resort is extending their “Two-for-One Stay and Play” package through August 31st. This deal allows guests to enjoy many perks including two nights in a cabin, two rounds of golf with no cart fees and complimentary breakfast. Also included is access to the Sports Club, which has a junior Olympic-size pool, tennis and even bocce ball courts. The cottages are within close proximity to miles of trails, so exploring the local environment is easy for the adventurous traveler. The deal starts at $309 midweek and $409 for the weekend per person. Two hours from the bay area, the Saddle Creek Resort is a great golf getaway not too far off the beaten path.
