The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in Chowchilla, California, partners with the adjacent Pheasant Run Golf Club, offering one of the best deals for RVers. Every night you camp at the Lakes RV & Golf Resort visitors receive two complimentary rounds of golf at Pheasant Run. This is not an early Christmas present, but rather a great deal for RVers staying any time of year at this central California RV park.
The RV park is two-hours from the San Francisco Bay, via California State Route 99 and Interstate 580. In addition to the complimentary golf, visitors will appreciate the well-maintained resort. There are 87 RV sites, 18 pull-through sites and 19 lake side spots. All the expected amenities are available, including 20-30-50 amp service, free Wi-Fi, cable, power, and sewer. A clubhouse, restrooms, showers, swimming pool, and spa are also on site. Further, the club can accommodate groups up to 55 people, and offers a full kitchen, TV, and VCR. The 18-hole Pheasant Run Golf Club is adjacent to the RV park.
“Most of the golfers from the Lakes RV & Golf Resort simply walk from their rigs to the course, which is only about a hundred yards,” said Eric Costa, PGA professional and Director of Golf.
What’s more, the par 72 course stretches 7,329 yards from the championship tees. Costa shard that water comes into play on 10 of the 18 holes. This means it’s a good idea to have a few extra balls on hand.
Designed by Richard Bigler, Pheasant Run Golf Club is a relatively flat course with wide, forgiving fairways. The signature hole is the par 3 number 4 featuring a 197-yard target green and with water on three sides. Once you finish golfing, check out the Final Round Bar & Grill adjacent the 18th green.
