Valley Club of Montecito has been ranked as one of the top courses in the U.S. and the World by Golf Magazine's panel of experts.
This 1929 Alister MacKenzie/Robert Hunter
creation is a low-profile 6,700-yarder near Santa Barbara,
Calif. Its recent popularity can be traced to a restoration
by Tom Doak, who with colleague Jim Urbina brought
back the look and strategic aspects of MacKenzie's
distinctive bunkering, reintroduced closely mown
chipping areas and restored subtleties within the greens.
