Like most RTJ II courses, CordeValle is loaded up with bunkers and challenging holes. The layout is spread out over 270 acres of rolling terrain that boasts large oak trees and natural water hazards. Since designing an exceptional course with no encroachments was at the core of the CordeValle vision, the course is free from any residential or commercials structures and rests one with nature inside the surrounding preserve. A great variety exists in the playing direction of the holes which enhances the experience in a variety of wind conditions. This solid track is considered by many to be one of the top courses Robert Trent Jones Jr. has laid his hands on.
