Down To Earth was gifted Hacienda Hills Golf and Country Club. This facility, along with two other championship courses including The Villages’ signature facility, Palmer Legends, were turned over to Down To Earth without a bid process due to the outstanding work that we have exhibited throughout the years. With the addition of these three championship courses, Down To Earth now maintains more holes in The Villages than any other maintenance company.
This 27-hole course offers a great test for all skill levels with bunkers on every hole and water on fourteen holes. Two of Chi Chi Rodriguez’s favorite holes of golf are on Hacienda. They’re the signature No. 1 holes on the Lakes and Oaks courses at Hacienda Hills Golf and Country Club. There they sit, side-by-side…It’s like looking into a mirror…And that’s precisely the point. Chi Chi Rodriguez, who played the course which opened in 1991, calls them his two favorite holes. High praise indeed from one of golf’s most storied players for a couple of holes that can’t help but conjure up a feeling of deja vu. They’re two long par 5s, sharing a lake, one doglegging this way, the other that, until they meet at the end in one particularly large green. No. 1 on the Lakes or “Los Lagos” doglegs to the left and covers 453 yards at its longest, while No. 1 on the Oaks or “Los Robles,” plays a bit longer, 485 yards from the back tees, and doglegs to the right around the same lake. Of course, this double dose of dueling fairways presents quite a challenge. Chi Chi wouldn’t have it any other way. And whether you go with your driver or unleash the big dog, you are in for a treat.
As Down To Earth improves the conditions of the courses, pictures will follow.
