There are several golf courses in close proximity to Château du Sureau, a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel.
Just up Interstate 49 in the town of Ahwahnee you’ll find the championship River Creek Golf Course, which offers tournament packages and features a clubhouse restaurant and bar. Also in Ahwahnee is the Ahwahnee Golf Course, a Bermuda grass championship target course that’s highlighted by its relaxed dress code and its signature 178-yard, par-three hole. Both courses are known for their formidable hills and water hazards, as well as stands of oak, pine and manzanita that will challenge even the most seasoned linksmen.
If you’d prefer to play a round while strolling through the beautiful scenery of Yosemite National Park, there’s also the Wawona Golf Course. This historic nine-hole, organic course opened in 1918, and at that time was the only regulation course in the Sierra Nevadas. Designed by architect Walter Favarque, it was officially incorporated into Yosemite in 1932, and in 2003 the course was certified as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary because of its environmental excellence.
