Lone Tree Golf Course, located an hour east of San Francisco along the San Juaquin River Delta, is Northern California public golf at its finest.
The course is characterized by rolling fairways that are lined with mature indigeneous trees. At this par-72 layout, the putting surfaces are maintained impeccably and require close observation to down grain break towards "the river".
Fairway and greenside bunkers are modest in number, but strategic in position and are purely the finest conditioned bunkers of the area rewarding golfers who demonstrate the skills to handle such hazards.
Fairly open from the tee, Lone Tree offers up rewarding scores on many holes for all levels of players keeping the round fun, but a satisfactory final 18 hole score is still well earned. Reasonable green fees make Lone Tree one of the best values in the Bay Area and many golfers choose to walk which makes the round even more affordable.
Lone Tree has a rich history in the area with an astounding number of the finest amateurs in Northern California calling the course home. The course hosts four different NCGA point events each year and these fine players fill the fields as well as other Nor Cal top Amateurs. With a strong instructional program, marqueed by the facility and golf professional staff being First Tee certified, this heritage is continuing for today's juniors. Both Antioch and Deer Valley High Schools call the course home for their Men's and Women's programs and in the Spring and Fall numerous High School invitationals are hosted.
Senior golfers are mighty and energetic at this favorite layout, with every Wednesday morning hosting an 8:00 am shotgun for the Senior Men's Group. Local Sons in Retirement groups frequenting the course regularly numerous times each year.
Ladies golf and programs have been growing strong the last couple of years and Tuesday and Thursday mornings host ladies 18 and 9 hole groups respectively. Thursday afternoons also host a growing ladies league that is all about fun. The golf professional staff further promotes ladies golf by hosting "Ladies only" clinics on a regular basis and an LPGA staff member is also available for individual instruction.
One of Lone Tree's most popular occassions is Couples Golf Night. Hosted on the first Thursday of the month (Spring through Fall), couples come out and enjoy 9 holes of golf in an alternate shot format. Pairings generally find two other couples in the same group to enjoy the jovial format. Play is followed by scoring and tasty appetizers at the clubhouse and usually a good story or two to share by all.
In 2004 Lone Tree opened a new Banquet and Event Center that has quickly become the premier facility for the East Bay area. Over 350 people can enjoy a fabulous setting that overlooks the nearby 18th green and adjacent reservoir. Banquets, weddings, anniversaries, business seminars, and parties abound with all enjoying the facilities comfort and the finest food around. A full service bar and restaurant are also available and are open for lunch and dinner. The restaurant patio area overlooking the 10th tee box and 18th green has become a local favorite for an afternoon lunch or an evening glass of wine. Golfers also conveniently get breakfast items at the snack bar early in the mornings.
The golf pro shop has a boutique feel and provides a wide selection of golf apparel, shoes, equipment and accessories for men and women. Favorites of the Ladies are Jamie Saddock and Under Armour which are not often found at public golf facilities. Our golf professionals are Titleist certified clubfitters and can help you find the correct wedge, driver or iron set for your individual needs.
