Golf goes for the grand prize in Sacramento

The video above was presented at the recent National Golf Course Owners Association Annual Meeting in San Antonio.

We are extremely proud of Haggin Oaks Golf Complex as a jewel in the City of Sacramento. Haggin Oaks was selected as one of the top four golf course operations throughout the United States (along with Aurora golf courses in Canada) and was the only municipal golf course to be included in the finals.

This superb golf complex consists of two courses, one of which was a designed by famous British golf course architect, Alister McKenzie in 1932.

The course is fitted with a driving range that boasts 100 hitting stalls that are open round the clock, five months a year. Also included in the complex is a highly unique putting course and a full service golf shop that has been rated in the top 100 golf shops for 31 consecutive years. A FootGolf course, where guests can combine a love of both soccer and golf, is the newest addition at Haggin Oaks.

Haggin Oaks prides itself on being an asset to the community and attending to customer trends and needs. It has a solid player development outreach program that attracts local juniors, seniors, the disabled and other special interest groups.

Congrats to Ken Morton, Sr.!

A special congratulations to Haggin Oaks’ very own Ken Morton, Sr., the most awarded golf professional in the PGA of America’s history, for his contributions to the golf community. Morton is the CEO of Morton Golf, LLC, which leases and operates City golf courses Haggin Oaks, Bing Maloney, and Bartley Cavanaugh. He is also the founder of the non-profit SAY Golf, Sacramento Area Youth Golf Foundation, now functioning under the name The First Tee of Greater Sacramento. This program has developed over the years to include more than 40 different programs and now reaches over 17,000 kids annually.
