This course was built at the beginning of the Sacramento area's 'golden age' of public golf courses. RTJ Sr. designed this course to be played in less than 3 hrs; a 'get-a-little-golf-in' timeframe for the busy executive. Having properly designed and built greens & green banks; for years EDH GC was known for the best and most unforgiving greens in the area. Unique for its time, EDH GC rewarded an accurate long iron game and a short game requiring touch, feel and a large dose of faith. Many great memories of this green oasis in the Sacramento foothills.
