Impeccable conditions, a quiet rural vibe, modest fees and a target-style design by the renowned Robert Muir Graves make Cherry Island Golf Course one of those "whole package" venues that first-timers vow to return to and veterans are glad that they do. Just 20 minutes north of downtown Sacramento, golfers across the Central Valley rave about the fast, true and astonishingly well maintained greens that characterize every one of Cherry Island's 18 holes. Stretching just under 6,600 yards from the championship tees, Cherry Island is fair to golfers of every ability level under Sacramento's wide and welcoming skies. Since its 1990 debut, the course's surroundings have matured beautifully, with the added benefit of being free of homes and other man-made structures that dare distract players from their round of golf. Owned by Sacramento County and managed by Empire Golf, Cherry Island tops out at $37 on weekends and can go as low as $12 on weekdays. It makes for a remarkable value quotient at this charming oasis of the inland valley. Learn more
