Gil Hanse has outdone himself with Ladera Golf Club. His design philosophy shines through each fairway, green, and bunker, ensuring a rewarding experience for golfers at every skill level. The course is a testament to Hanse's commitment to preserving the natural desert landscape while presenting a layout that intrigues any player.

As players navigate through the 18 holes, each with its unique character and strategy, they are treated to the stunning vistas of the Santa Rosa Mountains. The desert flora, including cacti, palo verde trees, and vibrant wildflowers, adds a splash of color to the beige tones of the desert, creating a picturesque setting for the game.

The Legendary Par-3 Eighth Hole

Among the many highlights of Ladera Golf Club, the par-3 eighth hole stands out. Not only does it feature Gil Hanse's architectural prowess, but it also carries a legend of its own. Hanse's hole-in-one during the inaugural round has immortalized this hole in the club's history, making it a must-play for every golfer who is invited.

The Fairways at Ladera

The fairways are a sight to see. With some ranging over 100 yards wide, each hole is essentially a playground for any golfer.

World Class Dining at the Turn
