      "While Member retention is an issue at every golf club.  A small investment not involving golf has made a big impact
at Greenhorn Creek.  Resort, a resort facility with a large local membership." - PGA Magazine 
  "While there are myriad coveted bucketlist venues such as Pebble Beach Golf Links and Spyglass Hill Golf Course There
are far too many golf courses to highlight—currently, more than 600 are public accessible—but here are some standouts
that will help unlock a golf experience of a lifetime." -- 2015 Travel Guide to California

 
  "Resort courses are very big over here and I can see why – it’s a great way to spend a weekend in one of the many fairway
cottages that the resort rent out. But Greenhorn has something called the ‘Caddy Shack’ that sleeps up to 12 people with its
own barbecue area, living room and kitchen facilities. It’s amazing and if you are a group of golfers looking for a place to play
and stay, this has to be high on your list."

  "A tour of great golf, wonderful wines and fantastic food.....I found it demanding, yet still respected my twenty handicap.
The well-manicured greens are of tour quality, both challenging and true." -- Karen Misuraca, Best Golf Resorts of the World

  "A couple of hours from San Francisco, Livermore and Central valleys, located near the charming, historic town of Angels
Camp, Greenhorn Creek is above the coastal and valley fog and below the snow, making it perfect for year-round golfing.
You can play golf one day and ski the next at nearby Bear Valley, and if the sky does start to cloud up, there are always
30+ nearby wineries and historic attractions to keep you and your gang busy.
Five tees make the 6,749-yard Robert Trent Jones II-designed golf course enjoyable for everyone in your group--just keep
your eyes peeled for the giant oak trees, the ponds and the lake. With cottages and condos also available, the resort is
perfect for friends, family, teams and business groups." -- Examiner

away from a variety of outdoor adventures in that part of Calaveras county, such as biking, boating , finishing and hiking. 
There also are 27 wineries in the region and guests are less than two hours from Yosemite Valley."
