Don’t Forget Your Clubs! Golfing in Eureka

Eureka Municipal Golf Course is a golfer’s dream. Set in a serene landscape surrounded by the majestic coastal redwoods, you will enjoy tree-lined fairways, ponds, and a small creek that winds through the course. Eureka Municipal Golf Course prides itself on being certified by Audubon International as a Cooperative Sanctuary, an award-winning education and certification program awarded to courses that protect our environment and preserve the natural heritage of the game of golf. The care for the environment is such an important topic to the City of Eureka itself that they awarded the Eureka Municipal Golf Course the “City of Eureka Proclamation of Recognition for environmental work on the course.” The fairways are wide, but don’t let that fool you – you’ll still need some strategic club selection as you navigate the 18 diverse holes. And while playing, be sure to keep your eyes open when they’re not on the ball — you might spot red-tail hawks, deer, osprey, or a variety of waterfowl.

The Eureka Golf course is a traditional coastal golf course, and an 18 hole Par70-course. The USGA rating for scratch golfers from middle tees is 66.9, and the slope rating for bogey golfers is 109. The course boasts a full driving range, practice green, an award-winning golf store, and Cocina Mariposa, a delicious small restaurant available for breakfast and lunch (and they’re dog friendly too!). A player's favorite tip: be sure to call the clubhouse when you reach #9 and order some street tacos and a drink to take with you to the back nine.

For those interested, you can also book private golf lessons with a PGA professional as an individual or group. And if you are traveling and have forgone bringing along your clubs, you can always rent a set for a reasonable price.
