Stockton is home to a pair of municipal golf courses - Van Buskirk and Swenson Park - along with a number of privately owned courses open to the public. We have included Micke Grove - even though it is in Lodi - since it is so close to Stockton.
Just a few miles north of Stockton at Micke Grove, the Micke Grove Golf Links offers an 18-hole course for players of all levels. Golf lessons are available. Rates with a cart range from $39 on weekdays to $49 on weekends. There are discounts for seniors, juniors, and early-bird, mid-day or twilight play.
