BUSINESS NEWS Gilroy Golf Course G ilroy Golf Course has been dubbed the “Best 11-hole golf course in the U.S.” But donʼt let the “11 hole thing” scare you away. This course can be played as a nine hole course for a quick round during the day or challenge yourself with 18 holes. On the back nine, you play seven of the same holes that you played on the front nine but from different lengths and angles, plus two different holes that you didnʼt play the first time around. Hole #7 is an uphill par 5 with a double-tier green and hole #8 is a beautiful downhill par 3. On the back nine you will go “around the hill” with two par 4ʼs and #16 and #17. The course is a par 70 (35 on each side) and can be played from 5,200 yards to just over 6,000 yards. The course is a serene setting in the still unspoiled Uvas valley. Being out on the course makes you feel like you are miles away from all the hustle and bustle. The course was built in 1923 by local farmers and businessmen and has gone through very few changes from its original classic design. Small undulating greens and wide generous, tree lined fairways will await you at every tee. The 245-yard par 3 eighth hole is perched high above the course and provides a breathtaking 180-degree view the southern tip of Santa Clara County as well as the pristine Gabilan Mountain range. The course is located at 2695 Hecker Pass Road. Call for a tee time at 408-848-0490.
