Look no farther than the Escalon Golf Course.

Escalon opened in 1984.

JB Golf

Surrounded by orchards, JB Golf is a quaint and quiet nine-hole course located in Farmington.

No alcohol is allowed on the premises. That’s the promise owner Jim Boone made when he inherited the funds for the par-27, 889-yard golf course that opened in 1990.

The course with antique tractors, ducks, and bunnies, to name a few, is ideal for those in need of working on their short game.
