designed in 1929 by Alister MacKenzie who was then at the height of his career, having completed Augusta National the same year and Cypress Point the previous year. Some of the defining characteristics of The Valley Club are the high quality small greens, subtle breaks due to the mountain/ocean effect, peaceful setting with mountain backdrops, as well as MacKenzie-designed bunkers which works into the course with a 'camouflage' effect.
