Course Description

We’re different! Think of us as an oasis in the center of a metropolitan jungle. There is not a house in sight. Located on a 464 acre site formerly mined for phosphate, the Sanlan Golf Course is unique. The above acreage does not include the adjacent 150 acre Sanlan Bird & Wildlife Sanctuary which is a 501(c)3 charitable corporation. Total area including the bird sanctuary – 614 acres.

Sanlan is fun to play! We have numerous changes in elevation, wide & narrow fairways, doglegs, water hazards, sand traps, tree lined ridges, tees & greens overlooking Banana Lake, all in a quiet and serene setting.

Our “A” course starts in front of the clubhouse next to a quality practice green of zoysia grass. The “A” course has been popular over the 20 years we have been in business because it is fun to play. It was reconstructed in the summer of 2017, several fairways widened, and all of the greens planted with zoysia grass. This nine has tree lined ridges on both sides. It starts with a par 4 guarded by a small pond.

The “B” course is strategic in design. It starts with a dogleg left. You need to think about the placement of every ball when playing the “B’ course. This nine has also been popular with golfers over the years.

If you like to swing away and “let er rip”, the “C” course is for you. Elevated tees and greens, wide, open fairways! This course meanders down to Banana Lake, then runs along the lake with a scenic view of the lake. Lots of gulls, hawks, & waterfowl. You will like the beauty of the “C” course.

 

History

The Sanlan Golf Course opened in 1991 and was originally named the Bramble Ridge Golf Course.

Designed by a no name architect, the designer gave special attention to the existing natural amenities of this unique property. The course was designed around it’s special features. It is strategic in design which means that you have to think about the placement of every shot if you want to make par.

In 2014 the Bramble Ridge Golf Course was merged with the adjacent Sanlan Ranch Campground. The Bramble Ridge Golf Course was losing money and the owner had a decision to make – either close the golf course or make it better. The decision was made to make it better and the new combined entity became “The Sanlan RV & Golf Resort, Inc.”

Since that time the course has been in a continuous state of improvement.

It has and is the goal of management to be the best we can be. Our immediate goal is to continue with the improvements we have started in order to offer our customers quality golf and the best value for the money. We are well on the way to achieving this goal.
