Vista Valencia Golf Course
Vista Valencia is an 18-hole, par 61 executive golf course that is both friendly to beginning golfers and yet very challenging for highly skilled golfers. Our signature hole, the par-3 seventeenth hole features an island green and plays 118 yards from the forward tee and 158 yards from the elevated back tee. The course is well bunkered and features varying sizes of undulating greens. Vista Valencia also has a 9-hole par-3 course called the Chica Course. The Chica Course is an excellent place for beginners to start learning the game and for advanced players to hone their short game skills. We offer a lighted driving range with 28 stalls along with two practice putting greens.

We Always Come Back For Brad
"Brad is amazing. We have attend this camp 4 years now and he is great with the kids."
— Elizabeth G. Parent
"Payton has never played golf or has never even touched a golf club. I was a little worried how she was going to feel about golf because it is a slower paced sport and requires a lot of focus. She has ADHD without the hyper activity so she is used to the high impacted sports like TaeKwonDo. She does become bored loses attention quite easily. Throughout the week she showed interest and was very focused on learning the game. I was very impressed. Towards the end of the week she is asking to join camp again! I will be enrolling her again in a couple of weeks! Now we could actually Go out and play the Par 3 course together! Thank you Brad Gallagher for keeping her interested!"
