Founded by OWH Pratt in 1919, the Yolo Fliers Golf Club is recognized as one of the finest private clubs in the Sacramento Valley. It is a classic course laid out with tree-lined fairways including many large, beautiful specimen Valley Oaks. The fairways are Bermuda and the greens, all rebuilt in recent years to USGA specifications by noted golf course designer Brad Bell, are bent grass and have been recognized by PGA professionals as better than most greens played on tour. Similarly, nearly all the bunkers with sparkling bright sand have been rebuilt recently to enhance the esthetics and challenges of the course. From the back tees the Fliers Club stretches to a formidable 7000 + yards. Members and guests more frequently play from a plenty long 6500 yards or at other teeing grounds measuring 5900, 5800, or 5200 yards. From any tee the course provides a chance for both the fun and the challenges of the game with a mixture of wide fairways, large, subtly sloped greens, well-placed bunkers and, of course, the rough and the trees. The course is recognized by both the USGA and NCGA as a championship venue as the Yolo Fliers Club has hosted qualifying tournaments for the Senior US Open, the US Open and the US Junior Amateur. It has surely earned its reputation as a hidden gem, both a country club and a beautiful club in the country.
