China Lake Golf Course

The China Lake Golf Course is a pinnacle for golfers in the High Desert. China Lake with its beautiful valley setting, where year-round golfing is the norm. The challenging 18-hole layout incorporates many water and sand hazards, and includes a full-practice facility. China Lake Golf Course is an 18-hole, Par 72 course on 248 acres, with a shaded driving range, chipping and putting greens, electric carts with GPS, a grill, and a pro shop with a full line of merchandise.

The 18th hole is a challenging par-5 that longer hitters can reach in two. The tee box sets up with a view of the clubhouse, while two bunkers and a lake on the right side guard the green. The clubhouse has a full-service grill, with indoor and outdoor dining available.

Whether it is meeting your friends on a flex Friday for a round of golf or bringing the family in for breakfast or lunch at the grill, China Lake Golf Course is the ideal place for the best view, a challenging golf game or a relaxing bite to eat. The clubhouse is available for catered functions, including retirement ceremonies and wedding receptions. The China Lake Golf Course is open to the general public.
