The Twain Harte Golf Club is a recreational facility for residents and visitors of the Twain Harte area. It is a 9-hole golf course with associated facilities appropriate for a community based activity.
Beginning in 1960, at a cost of approximately $40,000, Robert Baldock, of Fresno, designed the nine-hole course that features large greens, thick woods, and elaborate landscaping. The course was sponsored by the Twain Harte Rotary Club until its incorporation as an independent, non-profit organization in 1961.
Course construction was initially financed through the sale of 120 memberships at $300 each. The land upon which the THGC is situated was initially leased from the Eproson family. The property was formally transferred to the THGC from the Eproson family as a gift deed in 1968 with the proviso that the golf course always remain open and available to the public.
The original clubhouse underwent a major expansion in 1985. The expansion included a pro shop, restaurant/lounge and banquet room, and doubling in size to nearly 4500 square feet. A fire in March 2001 destroyed the building. Reconstruction of the new 6000 square foot clubhouse was started in December 2001 and opened in July 2002. The design of the facility is in keeping with the mountain resort feeling of the Twain Harte community and includes a larger banquet room, lounge, kitchen and pro shop.
