About the Course

The beautiful “heathland” style course provides dramatic panoramic views and challenges the golfer’s mental toughness to focus on executing the shot at hand.

Every hole at Sunset Valley tests different aspects of your game. It isn’t a cake walk for good golfer or a torture session for the not-so-good golfer.

New green complexes and a bail out areas are at every hole. The highlight of the course is the new signature Hole #4, designed as a breathtaking peninsula surrounded by a lake with natural stone walls covering the embankment outlined with colorful flowering plants.

The reconstructed greens meet the exact USGA specifications and exceptional turf for putting surfaces are contoured to provide a variety of fun experiences for every level golfer.


TEE IT FORWARD is a joint initiative between the USGA and The PGA of America that encourages players to play from a set of tees best suited to their driving distance. In addition to providing more enjoyment for golfers, teeing it forward also can be one of the most important steps that golfers take in improving pace of play.

A recent survey of TEE IT FORWARD participants found that:

  • 56 percent played faster
  • 56 percent are likely to play golf more often
  • 83 percent hit more-lofted clubs into greens
  • 85 percent had more fun
  • 93 percent will TEE IT FORWARD again

“We hope that you give it a try. You’ll have more fun and your rounds will take less time to play.”
