Rancho Duarte Golf Club is a Public 9 hole golf course located in Duarte, California.
The course was designed by William F. Bell. The course opened for play in 1982.
Par for the course is 31. From the back tees the course plays to 1,635 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 1,341 yards.
The shortest hole on the course is # 1, a par-3. A deceptive hole at only 68 yards this par 3 features a green which slopes from back to front and right to left. A shot below and to the left of the pin is ideal.
The longest hole on the course is # 3, a par-4 that plays to 329 yards. This hole has a slight dogleg to right. Even though the fairway is fairly wide open the best placed drives will be found down the left-center. Anything to the right of that will find an uneven lie on the numerous knobs and mounds that dot the fairway. The left side of the green slopes from back to front while the right side of the green slopes from left to right. A large crest runs down the middle of the green so it's imperative that a second shot finds the side where the pin is located.
Watch out for # 8, a 261 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. Although short for a par 4, this hole constantly plays against the wind to an elevated green that slopes from back to front and sets up diagonally to the fairway. Well-placed drives will be found below or above the elevated portion of the fairway in the flat areas. A difficult second shot due to the slope of the green, balls found below the hole will leave the best opportunities for made putts. The front portion of the green not only slopes from back to front but from left to right as well.
