The Santa Lucia Mountains provide a dramatic backdrop for The Preserve Golf Club. The Tom Fazio-designed course meanders through stands of massive ancient oaks, beautiful rolling meadows, ponds, and streams. The Preserve hosts the west coast's premier Mid-Amateur event each year -- The Stocker Cup -- and will certainly be a preferred qualifying site for Stocker tournament champions like former Cal golfer Michael Jensen.

SECESSION GOLF CLUB -- Beaufort, South Carolina
The club is named for the Secession House in nearby Beaufort, where the first meetings were held for South Carolina to formally secede from the United States before the start of the Civil War.

In golf, the term "hidden-gem" is perhaps one of the most overused descriptions of a course. But the Donald Ross design at Orchards in Western Massachusetts certainly fits the bill. Orchard's Glen Golf Club hosted the 2004 U.S. Women's Open won by Meg Mallon and has also served as the host of numerous Massachusetts state championships.

The course was designed by famed architect Perry Maxwell, designer of countless courses in Oklahoma and the midwest, including the original nine at Prairie Dunes in Kansas. The 2021 U.S. Senior Open site proved to be a popular host, with Jim Furyk rising to the top and hoisting the trophy, becoming just the eighth man to win both the U.S. Open and Senior Open titles.

The Club at Olde Stone, Bowling Green, Ky.
Perennially ranked as one of Kentucky's best, the club was designed by Arthur Hills, and recognized as one of the ten best new private courses in 2007 (before the Great Recession, when private clubs were opening in large numbers). The course's newly-installed Zoysia fairways and classic bentgrass greens are dotted with 99 bunkers. If you like the perched lies that Zoysia can provide, and have a solid bunker game, Olde Stone might be the site for you.
