500,000 trees on a golf course?! No way.

There's apparently a golf course near San Jose, CA., well it actually may be closer to Milpitas, but it supposedly has half a million trees. I can't seem to find anything about it or if it even exists. This information is coming from my father who played at this course many years ago (maybe 10-20).

Any other recommendations for great golf courses near San Jose also appreciated.

I think your dad is talking about the City Club of San Francisco Golf Course. Get on the waiting list now, because it's going to be a long wait to join. I was an Elk faster than it will take to join the City Club.

Half a million trees? That's a big golf course -- probably over 1000 acres.

The Santa Teresa Golf Club seems pretty proud of its trees. And this round-up of San Jose area courses mentions a few with trees (which I suppose are a bigger deal in California). No numbers, though.

It's even possible that your dad golfed at a course that's been plowed under for a subdivision. Happens all the time.

Response by poster: San Francisco Golf Course is a no go, thats near where I live now and I know thats not it. I imagine dhartung is right, it was bulldozed over for a subdivision to be haunted by dead golf balls. This mythical course was apparently pretty under appreciated, not very well kept, but very cheap.

I talked to my dad and he thinks he still has a score card, we shall see. Thanks for your input guys!
