Among the century old oak trees of the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex, a new little paradise has sprouted – and it’s called the MacKenzie Putting Course. Palm trees, bird of paradise flowers, a bubbling brook, and challenging holes ranging from 25 to 65 feet await the legions of Northern California golfers. It is becoming a favorite with adults, kids, and families alike. Nine challenging holes are what stand in the way of you and putting brilliance. This is no miniature putt-putt, nor simply a putting green. The MacKenzie Putting Course sports water hazards, sand traps, and sneaky breaks that challenge even the most seasoned putting pros. It’s this unique combination that makes this course fun and a refreshing new challenge with every round.
Even the logo for the MacKenzie Putting Course is special. Local artist Sue Johnson created a caricature of a young Alister MacKenzie, the namesake of the championship golf course at Haggin Oaks, as the logo for the putting course. Dressed in over-sized plus fours with a body-length golf club, it’s a testament to one of the great course designers of all time and serves as a cute reminder for the many kids touched by The First Tee of Greater Sacramento local programs.
The MacKenzie Putting Course is located at the Driving Range, behind the Haggin Oaks Golf Super Shop. Next to the MacKenzie Putting Course is the Haggin Oaks’ 22-hour driving range, Player Performance Studio fitting center, three-hole learning academy, 15,000 square foot Haggin Oaks Golf Super Shop, 36 holes of championship golf, and the facility’s cutting-edge FootGolf course.
