    Stanford Golf Course Review

    The Stanford golf course is what Tiger Woods, Tom Watson and John Elway called home, as it stands on a beautiful piece of property, in the heart of Stanford University, which is one of the world's most prestigious higher-learning centers. Obviously, the golf course is the home turf for various alumni scholars, but also for athletes, celebrities and politicians, not to mention students attending Stanford. The admission process is pretty tough, but it's definitely worth the stretch, as the Stanford University golf course was designed by two legendary architects, William "Billy" Bell and George C. Thomas.

    The club was first opened for players in 1930 and it was an instant hit, being ranked high, among America's top fifteen best golf courses at that time. The course features subtle elevation changes and a gently rolling terrain; there's also a meandering creek crisscrossing the property, while the bunkering is strategic, in good old-school tradition. The fairways at Stanford University's golf course are spacious, with subtle contours and large greens, while the 11th and 18th tees will delight you with spectacular panoramic views. If you're lucky enough, you can spot San Francisco on a clear day, as it's just thirty miles to the north. The golf course's layout is minimalist, pretty straight forward and simple, requiring players to shoot good shots to score, there's no way around it. The Stanford University golf course is consistently ranked high by prestigious golf publications as one of the best in the world and during its long and rich history it produced a lot of influential golfers, not to mention business leaders, including Tiger Woods, Bob Rosburg and Shelley Hamlin.
