opens IMAGE file Elephant Rocks Golf Course was another pleasant surprise in this little town.https://www.elephant-rocks.com We had no problem getting a tee time at the last minute so we loaded up our sticks and made the 10 minute trip to the course. First off, it’s a weird name for a golf course, right? Well, it turns out it is named for some rather large, and kinda elephant looking lava rocks that stand near the entrance to the course. The building that houses the golf shop and restaurant is an old stone building that was built in 1932 and contributes to the very rustic and casual feel of the place. The first few holes wind through pine tree lined fairways and eventually spills out into some wide open panoramic fields before eventually finishing back up through the hills and trees to a dramatic downhill par 3 finish. Several holes on the course offered views (in May) of the snow capped San Francisco peaks in the distance.
