When you enter through the large cast-iron gates of Sherwood Country Club, you get the sense you are about to enter a special place. As you make your way up the hilly, winding road past elegant, French-style country homes, all with majestic views of the Santa Monica Mountains and the Hidden Valley below, you realize you might never want to leave. Jack Nicklaus stated, "This was one of the more magnificent pieces of land I've had the opportunity on which to design a golf course. It is rare to see a piece of property that is so private, with so much natural beauty. There isn’t another golf course in the World that has a more beautiful tree complex than Sherwood."
