The North Course
The North Course at Coto de Caza Golf & Racquet Club is regarded as one of the best courses in Orange County. It provides few birdie opportunities with plenty of trouble to punish errant shots. Providing a little more space off the tee, the North instead puts more pressure on a player’s short game and iron play in order to score well.Explore
The South Course
The South Course at Coto de Caza Golf & Racquet Club was also designed by renowned golf course architect Robert Trent Jones Jr. This 18-hole championship golf course is shorter than the North, but also tighter, making it both a challenging and fun-to-play Orange County golf course. The greens are fairly flat and receptive with only subtle breaks, but Santiago Peak will exaggerate breaks depending on its location.Explore

Game On! Program
Whether you’re picking up a club for the first time or if you’re coming back to the sport after some time off, Coto de Caza Golf & Racquet Club’s Game On! Program provides the ideal way for golfers to experience learning the game in an environment and structure that will enable them to build the skills, knowledge and social connections to actively play the game and maximize your Coto de Caza Golf & Racquet Club membership.
Where Game On! differs from other traditional programs is that it does not measure success based on completing a set number of classes. Instead, success is defined when you have achieved the criteria set out within a 3-Level Progression Pathway that ensures you have harnessed the knowledge, experiences and appropriate level of skill to play the golf course. The length of time spent on the program varies between golfer but it’s why golf is a journey, not a marathon.
No matter where your golf journey is taking you, Coto de Caza Golf & Racquet Club is excited to welcome you to the sport! From socializing in a friendly and fun environment to focusing on health and wellness, golf has something for everyone and for every family through:
Making New Social Connections
Spending more time with loved ones
