The original Squaw Valley course, Apache Links, opened in 1992–a Jeff Brauer design that is open on the front and more densely wooded on the back. Brauer’s work involved bringing in dirt to provide some mounding to the flat terrain, and he placed the course along a scenic creek that comes into play, mostly on the back.

No. 9 is the best hole on the front because of its split fairway. Macho men can go for the green by aiming over the lake–otherwise it plays a pedestrian 362 yards if you choose the left side, where it doglegs around the lake.

On the back, Nos. 15 and 16 are back-to-back par 4s that you’ll be glad to get out of the way. The 15th rolls 462 yards and doglegs right, requiring a tee shot over the creek. The long approach is especially challenging due to the long row of trees at the corner of the green. Hole 16 features an elevated green above Squaw Creek. Play for position off the tee because the hole is not long.

    Multiple tee boxes allow for a golfers of any level to be challenged by a great layout that is well maintained and with 2 18 hole tracks, is able to get you on and playing. The greens are very large. Average well over 10,000 square feet each. Elevation changes and several water hazards are pleasing to the eye and demand for calculating shot strategies. Well worth the drive to Glen Rose to play.

    Along with the Lakes Course, this is one of the best kept grounds I've seen, especially for a public. Challenging greens that play even and smooth. Fairway and layout allows for all skill sets to enjoy the round while having to utilize all parts of your game. Friendly, helpful staff with free bottled water for each side on hot days. The only complaint I have is that I live 30 miles away and only able to play there once a month.
