The fairways are bermuda grass and the greens are bentgrass. In 2006, all greens were rebuilt in to USGA specifications by noted golf course architect Brad Bell and have been recognized by many as some of the best putting surfaces in the Sacramento Valley. Similarly, nearly all the bunkers have been rebuilt recently to enhance the esthetics and challenges of the course.
From the Black Tees the Fliers Club stretches nearly 7000 yards. Members and guests more frequently play from the member favorite Blue Tees (6500 yards) or from other teeing grounds such as Blue/White Combo (5900 yards), White/Gold Combo (5800 yards) or Gold (5200 yards).
From any tee the golf course provides a chance for challenges of the game with a mixture of wide fairways, large, subtly sloped greens, well-placed bunkers and of course, the rough and a variety of mature trees. The course is recognized by both the USGA and NCGA as a championship venue. The Yolo Fliers Club has hosted qualifying tournaments for the NCGA/USGA including USGA Senior Open Qualifying, USGA Open Qualifying, and has been the annual host of NCGA Qualifying for the USGA Junior Boys Championship.
In September 2014 & 2015, we hosted the Web.com Tour’s Pre-Qualifying Tournament. In 2015, we will be hosting a Northern California PGA Pro-Series Event, USGA Junior Boys Qualifying and in April we will host the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) and a premier competitive junior championship.
