Share Your Passion For Golf With Your Family

The game of golf provides parents with the perfect chance to teach their kids important values that are inherent in the game, such as courtesy, honesty, perseverance, respect and sportsmanship. Bing Maloney Golf Course is the perfect place to spend quality time with your family. You’ll have fun, while creating memories to last a lifetime.

Golf used to be seen primarily as a man’s sport, until the mid-1980s when Golf Digest promoted the need for youth golf. Then along came Tiger Woods in the mid-1990s, who went on the PGA Tour and quickly became one of the most recognized athletes in the world, dramatically increasing interest in the sport of golf. When golfers learned that Tiger had started playing at age 3, they realized that the game is for everybody of all ages. During this same period, Annika Sorenstam was also winning recognition. The resulting focus on Tiger and Annika, coupled with the increased American focus on the family has helped promote golf as being a family sport.

And remember…we provide special green fees for the whole family. Junior golfers can pay reduced rates nearly every day on all City of Sacramento Golf Courses by first attending an etiquette class or participating in one of the golf classes given at any of the city courses. Another great opportunity for families is playing after 6 p.m. during the summer when Mom and Dad receive extremely low rates and juniors who play with an adult pay only $1.50.

Play golf until dark during the long days of summer and then stop off in our café for a hamburger and soft drink before going home. This is fast-becoming a tradition for many families in the Sacramento area.
