Located just north of Auburn, tucked back in the heart of Placer County’s own wine country is Auburn Valley Country Club. Golf is just one of the reasons people make their homes in the upscale community. Most of the residences are nestled throughout the hillside above the course, some with views of the course, others of the surrounding Auburn Valley. An NCGA article on the course noted that on a clear day you can see all the way to Chico.
The last thing that comes to mind about the homes is “cookie cutter.” Homes range in size and style and a diverse collection of trees and lush landscaping create unobtrusive aesthetic screens of privacy. Though seemingly situated in close proximity, the lots are spacious and there’s no shortage of open space and wonderful wildlife wandering the area.
The course is a Larry Curtola-Joe Aliota design and an array of membership options are available. The Valley View Grille is the closest and most convenient option for dining out and is open for breakfast and lunch Tuesdays through Sundays with “Club Night” dinners Thursday evenings.
