I played here with 3 friends. Walter Hicks checked us in. He was so welcoming and helpful...the course was in good condition and in short...we all had a great time. We plan on returning soon.. Only suggestion....bring lots of balls...go off the fairway means "reload"..... no I forgiveness....Mike

Love going to this location for the view of the golf course and free champagne with Sunday brunch. Breakfast is low to average now. Don't get the ham with breakfast. It's a big slice but dry and flavorless. It's more about the ambiance than the food.

It was a lot of fun playing on the fairways, but not on the greens - just too fast. Without a doubt, however, this is a well laid out and maintained course where shot making counts every hole. Whitney Oaks deserves to be on anyone's list of the top five courses in the greater Sacramento area. I also appreciated the... More

Outstanding layout. Grass was dormant and brown and course was undergoing ownership changes. I was told the Casino had bought it and were revamping the course. I was also told it used to be a Miller design but for reasons they didn't have that designation anymore. Greens were lightening fast. Club house is very nice and good food. The pro... More

While the facilities and staff are nice, and while the course in enjoyable, it has numerous funky holes that just don't make any sense. Big bolders in the middle of a par 5 for example. They run good values, but just be prepared for some target type golf.

Whitney Oaks is a beautiful course with lots variety. The beauty can mask the fact the course has plenty of challenges. Don't let that scare you off, though. It is a course that you will want to come back to again and again.

The staff is professional and curteous. We have been playing there or practicing at the range for the last ten years. I have seen it go from the most challenging course and a record loss of balls, to a kinder and gentler course. Don't get me wrong, I still lose a sleeve of balls, but now I am down to... More

Just a course that is not that fun to play. The holes just tend to be a little odd. There are far better courses in the area

Good prices, especially twilight rates. Back nine is beautiful but narrow. Bring lots of balls.

Good start of the day with a breakfast at the Whitney Oaks Clubhouse overlooking the golf course and houses on Clubhouse Drive. Golf course slopes very nice in little valley just on the edge of the foothils with lots of old trees and big rocks. Not crowded, easy to reach and shady. Highly recommend.
