Home – DarkHorse Golf Club

Since its opening in 2002, DarkHorse Golf Club in Auburn, has raced to the top of the golf world with surprising speed. Award after award has been showered on this course, designed by Keith Foster, on a site that lies in the Sierra Nevada foothills.Golf Magazine chose DarkHorse as one of its Top 10 You Can Play in America; Golf Digest honored DarkHorse as one of its Best New Affordable Public Courses. The Sacramento Bee voted the club as its No. 1 course to play in the Sacramento area within six months of our opening.

“I played Dark Horse for the first time with a friend (also his first visit); we were blown away. Everything about the course was immaculate – tee boxes were beautiful, fairways were perfectly watered and mowed, the greens were immaculate (smoothest I’ve played in a long time), even the fringe was perfectly mowed. The sand traps (of which there are quite a few, and which I visited more than I’d like) were likewise perfect – soft sand well kept, and every golf cart came equipped with a rake to take care of. The driving range and practice green were likewise in great shape…the quality of the course was unparalleled with anything that I’ve played in this price range, particularly during the COVID period when many courses aren’t being well-maintained. I’ll definitely be back – soon.”
