Valley Gardens is a tight little executive walking course has four par 4s and five par 3s. Designed by Bob E. Baldock, Valley Gardens Golf Course, which opened in 1971, isn't a total pushover, though. There are plenty of trees to negotiate as well as a few bunkers. A spring-fed lake also comes into play on three holes. Valley Gardens Golf Course's signature hole is the sixth, a 275-yard par 4 with a water hazard in front and to the right of its bentgrass green.
