Heading back to the west coast, we take a look at another Alister MacKenzie masterpiece, the Valley Club of Montecito, located in California's Santa Barbara County. The Valley Club was built in 1929 by Mackenzie and Robert Hunter and is regularly placed in the Top 100 Courses in America.
The Valley Club has an exclusive membership of about 300 and keeps the golf course in pristine shape. The Valley Club is tucked between the Pacific Coast and foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountains. This is one of the most authentic MacKenzie designs with incredible bunkering, routing and green designs.
