Play Under the Big Oaks at Bing Maloney

A round at Bing Maloney in South Sacramento offers you a relaxing and friendly day of golf on a championship course with a unique history. Our par 72 18-hole course was designed by M.J. McDonaugh, an associate of the famed golf architect Alister MacKenzie.

We offer traditional golf on tree-lined fairways where massive oaks create interesting tests for players. We often say about our course that “what you see is what you get.” It’s a fair and playable course with no trick holes or gimmicks. This is classic, time-honored golf in the best sense, but with sloping greens that will challenge your short-game skills.

You start your round with a par 4 that is a slight dogleg left, playing at 397 yards from the back tees and 359 from the front.

A memorable hole is the par 5 No. 6, 513 yards from the back and 452 from the front. It runs next to an executive airport that formerly was the main airport in Sacramento, so a number of airport light standards run down the fairway and planes often fly toward you as you head down toward the green. The hole is a dogleg right with trees on the right and the airport to the left.

You’ll find an interesting risk-reward situation on No. 10, a sharp dogleg left, par-4 measuring 387 yards from the back and 360 from the front. If you can hit a hook with your driver, you could safely end up with only a 100-yard approach shot to the green. This green is the most treacherous on the course, heavily sloping from back to front.

The 12th, 430 yards from the back and 414 from the front, is one of the tougher par 4’s in Sacramento. It’s a dogleg left with a gigantic heritage oak in the center of the fairway. As you make your tee shot, you can go left of the tree and then possibly end up running into an out-of-bounds fence, or you can take a fairway wood and try to pop your ball over the tree, or you can go right through but it’s longer that way.

Toward the end of your round, you’ll encounter No. 16, a solid and classic par 3, measuring 162 yards from the back and 131 from the front. You’ll also find a large bunker to the left and a big oak tree in back of the green.
