Lost Canyons Golf Club

Links-Style Layouts in California’s Santa Susana Mountain Range...

  “The views are unbelievable. There are times that you look around and think that you are in Montana.” -Fred Couples

Lost Canyons Golf Club, LA’s newest destination resort, is a high-end daily fee facility featuring 36 holes of championship golf designed by world-renown golf course architect Pete Dye with golf course consultant Fred Couples for Landmark National. Pete Dye has designed some of the most legendary and recognizable golf courses in the world including five on Golf Magazine’s Top 100 Courses in the World– Casa de Campo in La Romana, Dominican Republic; The Golf Club in New Albany, Ohio; Whistling Straits in Haven, Wisconsin; TPC at Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida and The Honors Course in Ooltewah, Tennessee. Dye, well known for creating some of golf’s more memorable challenges, has earned a reputation for an ever-present emphasis on environmental protection.


The collaboration between Pete Dye and PGA Tour great Fred Couples has created a distinctive links layout on the 1,640 acre site in the Simi Valley. Although just 45 minutes north of Los Angeles, Lost Canyons feels like you are worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There are few distractions here.


The Sky Course was selected by Golf Magazine as one of the Top 10 Best New Courses in 2001 and the Shadow Course earned honors as one of the Top 10 Best New Courses in 2002.


The Sky Course follows canyon ridge lines offering spectacular panoramic views while the Shadow Course winds along the rolling canyon floor and affords breathtaking views of White Face Mountain. Both golf courses place premiums on accuracy and positioning. With five sets of tees, one has only to select their comfort level to enjoy a truly unique golf experience.


The Sky Course features back-to-back par-5s on the 4th and 5th holes that cover 1140 yards and a par-4, 9th hole that is 485 yards from the back tees. The par-5, 12th and 14th holes exceed 600 yards each while the par-3, 17th looks 30 miles past the hanging green to the Los Angeles National Forest.


The Shadow Course, set on lower ground than the Sky Course, flows through the natural terrain of Dry Creek Canyon below the Santa Susana Mountains. Box canyons and shadows cast by canyon walls create an intimate feeling. Reminiscent of the Old Course at St. Andrews, the Shadow Course plays through rolling fairways and trench-like bunkers to its farthest point at the 9th hole before making the turn for the clubhouse. Less grading was necessary on the Shadow Course than the Sky Course resulting in a less forgiving layout.


Lost Canyons 20,000 square-foot club house features a fully-appointed golf shop and dining room with indoor and outdoor seating for tournaments and group outings of any size. The practice facilities, golf academy and optional professionally-trained forecaddies offer a level of service normally only found only in the finest private clubs.


Landmark National has developed more than 25 golf courses including PGA West, Mission Hills, Carmel Valley Ranch and Kiawah Island.  Landmark’s experience guarantees Lost Canyons will be fondly remembered long after the last putt has dropped.
