Shady Canyon


Shady Canyon is a classic, gated community located in beautiful Irvine, CA.

The homes are spaced well apart, and clusters of homes have their own sets of security gates for privacy. Shady Canyon is surrounded by 16,000 acres of natural sanctuary. The community has extensive trails, a clubhouse, tennis courts, and a swim center with a junior Olympic size swimming pool & spa.

The 18-hole “Shady Canyon” course at the Shady Canyon Golf Club facility in Irvine, California features 7,012 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 71. The course rating is 74.5 and it has a slope rating of 144 on Bermuda grass. Designed by Thomas Fazio, ASGCA, the Shady Canyon golf course opened in 2002. In addition to the use of the private Tom Fazio Golf Course, members of the Shady Canyon Golf Club® enjoy privileges equal to those of the finest international private golf clubs. Amenities are offered in both the Main Clubhouse and the adjacent Swim and Fitness Center.

The golf course at Shady Canyon was designed by world-renowned golf course designer Tom Fazio and makes full use of the intrinsic values of this dramatic, secluded landscape. Tom Fazio’s layout is challenging to all levels of players while it is respectful of the sycamore groves, boulder formations and land contours indigenous to Orange County and Shady Canyon.

Within the golf course’s 300 acres are 18 dramatic holes – some disappear deep into ravines, others ascend remote slopes. The front nine is aligned generally to Shady Creek; the back nine follows East Shady Creek deep into the adjacent nature preserve. The course measures 7,012 yards from the back tees.
