Stanford University Golf Course was designed in 1930 by renowned golf course architects William Bell and George C. Thomas. The course is located in the foothills above the Stanford University Campus and is open to current faculty, staff, students, members, alumni and their guests. The course at Stanford University was rated the nation's 3rd best college course by golf coaches. Greens are large, in good condition and roll true but have hard to read breaks. One key is to look for the subtle grain on the greens to help you read the slopes since the grain follows the slope. Thus downhill putts are a bit faster than they look and uphill putts a bit slower than they appear while the grain on sidehill slopes accentuate the breaks. Although a par 70, scoring often will not be low mainly due to the greens and lack of roll on tee shots. The course plays longer than the yardage. A series of tough par 4s will test you throughout your round. Stanford is visually striking with many native areas separating 18 distinctive and memorable holes.
