A secret no more, now in year two of operation, Sevillano Links may just be the best destination for an inexpensive and unique golf experience in all of Northern California. Native American Indians who operate the adjacent Rolling Hills Casino and Hotel about 90 minutes north of Sacramento have created an option for golfers on a budget and looking for a good time. The "stay and play" package provides lodging in comfortable spacious rooms and at Long John Daly's signature course. It's is a jewell on native lands. Sevillano Links is expansively layed out with the tips measuring to 7800 yards. 4 other tee boxes are options for more mortal hitters of the golf ball. The track was in superb condition when we played in early October, and the native brush which is everpresent surrounding the fairways and greens comes into play a lot. This time of year however, "playing from the hay" is not punative. All 5 tee boxes per hole are set with Olive markers, since the local town of Corning is considered the Olive capital of the State. There are no trees on the course, but an abundance of sand traps , waste areas, and a little water provide challenges beyond the relatively flat but undulating fairways. The practice facilities are first rate, with an all grass driving range, terrific sand shot area, and perfect putting green. The overall facility may not be as recognized as Spanish Bay in Pebble Beach, but it features a Links layout just as formidable but much more affordable. Visit www.Sevillanolinks.com for the amazing deals being offered. It's the perfect road trip for a couple of rounds, lodging, gaming and tremendous food. The portions and quality of the menues at Rolling Hills Casino is impressive, and the value is amazing. Granted, that's part of the formula for the successful casino, but even the Monday Night Football buffet is spectacular, and the big screen TV's and dollar beers make it a must. We made the trip in under 4 hours from Santa Cruz.
