Our Course

Sunset Valley has undergone an extensive million renovation to the course and clubhouse. The new  course reflects a unique British Heathland design with an openness accentuated with strategic landforms, flowing masses of native grasses and groves of trees which harken back to the character and aesthetic appeal of the course’s original 1920’s era golf course architecture. The newly remodeled clubhouse offers a classic vibe with striking views of the golf course. Now featuring an expanded golf shop, the new 13ninety restaurant as well as a cozy lounge area with fireplace, the clubhouse is a destination for guests and golfers to relax and Enjoy the Sunset.
