Southgate Golf Course can be a walkable course for those looking to mix a little exercise in with their golf game. This is a “doable” course that weaves alongside the Santa Clara river – just close enough to make it beautiful and keep the game interesting. Eight of the first nine holes have water features, so you’ve got to be accurate. But the fairways are wide, so there’s usually a safe place to play. The back nine, however, is a different story. The narrow fairways and hills make you justify your front nine score. If you’re not happy with your results, Southgate also has a game improvement center with PGA professionals to help you dial things in!

Southgate Golf Course is a par-70 layout which is enjoyable for all levels of ability.”
