Camino Heights Golf Course is one of the oldest courses in the area. The course originally opened in the mid ’60s and was designed as an 18-hole links-style course. The current layout of nine holes was reopened in the early ’90s. Camino Heights did close again in January of 2010. It was reopened in April of 2010 & has been open daily since then. Many remember Sierra Golf Course (by the Placerville Airport) and El Dorado Hills (next to Highway 50) that shut down a few years ago. Camino Heights is the last nine-hole course in the area. Communities need courses like Camino Heights that offer opportunities to play at a reasonable price and can be played within a 2-hour timeframe. It also is less intimidating for the young or new golfers that are just starting out. The Union Mine High School boys golf team is slated to start practicing at Camino Heights this February. Several people have approached us about rumors that the course is once again going to closed down. I’m not sure who is starting or spreading these rumors, but we’re asking the community to stop them. There are no plans to close the course. Thank you.
