Tiburon Golf Club – Gold Course
The Franklin Templeton Shark Shootout, held every December, makes the Gold Course at Tiburon more popular than its sibling Black Course. Public and member play rotates daily between the two. Both layouts feature similar characteristics, playing firm-and-fast with wall-to-wall short grass and no rough. Those conditions add distance off the tee, although shots offline tend to find trouble. More waste bunkers, filled with crushed coquina shells, line the 7,271-yard Gold Course. Slightly elevated greens surrounded by tricky collection areas defend the aerial assaults of the pros. Demanding par 4s finish each nine, providing views of the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort and clubhouse.
