On August 1st, 2017 the Faria family started a journey of transformation. Steve, Rick, Danny, Danny Jr. and Mike Faria envisioned Tulare Golf Course with all the amenities of the valley’s best Country Clubs, that is designed for our Ag and blue-collar communities.
Tulare Golf Course is a 6,762 yard, 18-hole layout with Bent Grass Poa greens, Bermuda fairways, and tees. The elevated greens on the front nine will challenge even the best ball strikers. Our fairways are outlined with Eucalyptus and Chinese Pistachio trees, and the course plays much tighter than the 127 slope from the blue tee markers. We feel confident in saying that Tulare’s track is one of the toughest in the Central Valley, yet still remarkably enjoyable to play.
Memorial Day weekend 2018 was a big day for the course as we re-opened the newly designed Pro Shop. Gone are the days of wood paneling that welcomed our golfers for over 40 years. You will no longer see carbon-paper credit card slips and calculator tape in the shop. We can now be found all over the web; GolfNow, Golf Moose, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter have all our important updates. Book your tee time at www.tularegolf.com any time of day.
We have worked very hard to give every golfer a full retail experience. The shop has partnered with some of the best brands in the industry. Travis Mathew, Puma Golf, Nexbelt and Oakley too name a few. Add New Balance and Puma golf shoes, our women’s and jr.’s apparel, and we can outfit every golfer from head to toe. Anything we do not have in stock we can special-order for you, and we are also an excellent resource for any golfers gifts, including gift cards.
The Player’s Club is our custom club fitting and repair shop. The expert shop staff can help you from a custom fit set of irons to a full shaft swap on your current clubs. Our trained staff can perform any task from regripping to bending forged irons with our loft and lie machine.
We welcomed the major equipment brands to the shop as well. Mizuno, Callaway, TaylorMade, Cobra, and Titleist clubs, Scotty Cameron and Bettinardi putters are all here. Our goal is to handle every aspect of the golfers’ needs at the best possible price.
We’ve recently identified a need in our sports community, and we hope to grow into a go-to destination for tennis players needs as well. The Player’s Club added tennis to its list of services in August of 2018 as well as racket restringing. Tecnifibre and Gamma tennis products are available at the shop so whether you need string, overgrip, dampeners or demo rackets we can help.
Every transformation is a journey that takes time, and we will continue to grow and improve our community. As of September 10, 2018 we’ve rolled out a brand new fleet of Yamaha golf carts with everything the modern golfer could want, from USB charges to the Tulare Golf Course YamaTrak GPS app. We will continue the improvements and remodel, bringing new changes as often as possible.
Plans include a redesign of the 10th hole layout, moving #10 tee box east ten yards creating a soft dogleg right. We will also renovate the 7th hole green, widening one of the most challenging par 3’s from Sacramento to Bakersfield. Our 8th hole tee box will also be moved to provide a tighter dogleg left. Even aesthetic changes like brand new restrooms and improved cart paths are in the works.
Come out and enjoy the course any time of the year, our friendly staff will be happy to show you around the shop, set you up with range balls, or add you to our monthly membership. Senior monthly rates start at 55 yrs old, and juniors receive fantastic discounts. If you’ve never considered playing the Tulare Golf Course, come out and see what you’ve been missing.
