The Valley Club of Montecito - Montecito, CA

Just after completing Augusta National and Cypress Point, Alister Mackenzie headed down to Southern California to team up with Robert Hunter and build The Valley Club of Montecito.  Established in 1929, The Valley Club was recently renovated by Tom Doak in 1997 to more accurately reflected Mackenzie's original intentions.  The original routing remains in place to this day and is one of the most untouched Mackenzie designs you can play.

Keeping with the club's policy on limited use of social media, I have only posted a single image from my visit.  If you get the chance to play, the experience will certainly delight your golfing soul.
