The public venue's 18 holes were meticulously designed by Ron Fream and David Dale to incorporate the existing movement of the land, frequent natural water features and spectacular views. Also, like many relatively upscale modern courses, six sets of tee boxes offer plenty of options, making the course range from 7,005 yards from the black tees to slightly more than 5,102 from the burgundy markers.
Tree-lined, swelling fairways lead to multi-tiered greens that are protected by dramatic bunkering, a scattering of rocks and diverse water features. The layout is sprinkled with 92 bunkers, three lakes on two holes and creeks on seven holes. Yet it remains a fair-minded test to a variety of challengers.

The Gilroy Municipal Golf Course has been dubbed the "Best 11-Hole Golf Course in the U.S.". But don't let the 11-hole thing scare you away! This course can be played as a nine-hole course for a quick round during the day or you can challenge yourself with 18 holes. Enjoy the newly-added par 3 #4, which was a part of the original course in 1923. On the back nine, you play seven of the same holes that you played on the front nine, but from different lengths and angles, plus two different holes that you didn't play the first time around. Hole #7 is an uphill par 5 with a double tier green, and hole #8 is a beautiful downhill par 3. On the back nine, you will go "around the hill" with two par 4's (#16 and 17). The course is a par 70 (35 on each side) and can be played from 5,200 yards to just over 6,000 yards. You can especially enjoy viewing the serene setting in the still-unspoiled Uvas Valley while riding on newly paved cart paths.
