Valhalla Golf Club



Menlo Country Club

Redwood City, CA Private

Overview

Kyle Phillips completed an extensive renovation in 2014, moving nearly 100,000 cubic yards of earth—creating 14 new holes and redesigning the other four holes. The original course opened in 1912 after it was designed by Scotsman Tom Nicoll. Redesigns were done over the years by Robert Trent Jones, Sr., after the club acquired additional land—and the work Phillips did over 17 months completely reimagined the course while staying true to the original Menlo Country Club design. The club now enjoys bentgrass greens, and Phillips instituted playability with more teeing areas and redesigned green complexes that feature run-off areas that offer options for those who miss the green.
