"Hit a bad shot? Take a mulligan and hit it again." This golfer’s term for a "do-over" is the inspiration behind the name of the clubhouse at the China Lake Golf Course.
Located on Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake, Calif., the China Lake Golf Course is a pinnacle for golfers in the High Desert. China Lake is in a beautiful valley setting, where year-round golfing is the norm. The challenging 18-hole layout incorporates many water and sand hazards, and includes a full-practice facility. China Lake Golf Course is an 18-hole, Par 72 course on 248 acres, with a driving range, chipping and putting greens, electric carts with GPS, a grill, and a pro shop with a full line of merchandise.
The 18th hole is a challenging par-5 that longer hitters can reach in two. The tee box sets up with a view of the new clubhouse, while two bunkers and a lake on the right side guard the green. The clubhouse has a full-service grill, with indoor and outdoor dining available.
Whether it is meeting your friends on a flex Friday for a round of golf or bringing the family in for breakfast or lunch at the grill, China Lake Golf Course is the ideal place for the best view, a challenging golf game or a relaxing bite to eat. The clubhouse is available for catered functions, including retirement ceremonies and wedding receptions. The China Lake Golf Course is open to the general public. Contact the Golf Course for details.
