Bartley W. Cavanaugh Golf Course, built in 1995 and named after a popular former Sacramento city manager, is located in the Freeport area. This outstanding course was laid out by Perry Dye, a member of the renowned golf-course design family. Perry, his father, Pete, his mother, Alice, and his younger brother, P.B., left the name “Dye” on almost 250 courses around the world. For players who love unique challenges, this course course1.jpgoffers many distinctive opportunities to test your clubs and your skills. Perry Dye tucked our championship course into a 96-acre site nestled along the Sacramento River. He created moderately sized greens with undulations. There are generous landing areas on fairways that have been landscaped with young trees. You’ll find rolling terrain at Bartley Cavanaugh with lots of mounds, something like a links course. Although the course measures only about 6,200 yards from the tips, there is excitement here. Out-of-bounds runs along the left side of the fairways on the front side of the course and water is in play on seven of the 18 holes. Wind can be a factor on some of the holes as well.
