Let’s start with the course! Did you know that Haggin Oaks has two separate golf courses?

Alister MacKenzie 18 Hole Course

The MacKenzie Golf Course is, without a doubt, the player’s course at the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex. Designed by the mastermind behind Augusta National and measuring a respectable 7030-yards from the back tees, this 89-year-old track, originally designed by world-renowned architect, Alister MacKenzie, is a true test of golf for the low handicapper.

*A golf handicap is the difference between the total golf course rating and the average number of strokes a golfer plays in about 10 games. If you have a high handicap, you need more than the suggested number of strokes (par) to finish the golf course. Scratch golfers have a handicap of zero. That means they finish the course or hole on par.

Arcade Creek 9 Hole Course

The Arcade Creek Golf Course is a relatively flat layout designed and built to be friendly to every skill level. The front nine was opened to the public in 1957 with the back nine opening in 1958. The course can still be played as either a nine-hole track or 18-hole regulation round which makes it ideal for beginners, walkers, and leagues.

Each course has its own practice green adjacent to the first holes. Putting practice is free and doesn’t require a reservation!

Next, let’s dive into our retail shops! We have two separate shops on site. Our Pro Shop includes booking tee times, club repair, and grip installation, as well as hosting our shoes. Our Super Shop includes all your other retail needs, as well as houses our lessons and custom club fitting appointment desk.

Pro Shop

The Haggin Oaks Shoe Store features between 1200 and 2000 pairs of shoes throughout the year from all the major brands. We carry the largest selection in the Sacramento Valley and in Northern California including an array of sizes and styles for men, women, and juniors to fit everyone’s needs.

Also at Haggin Oaks, the perfect wedding and special events venue, with indoor and outdoor spaces that provide flexible, year-round options at two of the premier golf courses in the Sacramento valley.

The Pavilion

Great for any time of year, this beautiful white tent is nestled between the 17th fairway and 18th green on the championship Allister Mackenzie Golf Course. With drapery and dimmed wrought iron chandeliers, this space showcases elegance as soon as you walk in. Make your way through the back doors into our lush garden area where guests enjoy cocktails under our white gazebo or sit underneath our 150-year old Heritage Oak tree.

Creekside Landing

Similar to the Pavilion, this smaller white tent with drapery and wrought iron chandeliers is located on the first tee of the Arcade Creek Golf Course. Overlooking the first fairway, this venue is perfect for your next celebration!
