Welcome to Yolo Fliers Club
Since its founding nearly a century ago, the Yolo Fliers Club has provided its members with a recreational facility that has been recognized as one of the outstanding courses in Northern California, and a club structure that provides the opportunity to enjoy a variety of activities that are part of country club living.
The Yolo Fliers Club was founded by aviation enthusiast and sportsman O. W. H. Pratt on Sunday, Sept. 28, 1919.
On May 7, 1921, national attention was focused on the Fliers field when it hosted the largest aerial show of its kind on the Pacific Coast. After decades of flying success, the air field was eventually sold in 1945.
On June 14, 1922, the clubhouse and swimming pool were officially dedicated. Also completed was the club gateway, which encases memorial plaques honoring the Yolo residents who died in World War I.
The first club championship was held in 1941, during which Les Morris (pictured) triumphed over his best friend Bill Crawford for the title.
In the spring of 1958, the second nine holes of the golf course were completed, making Yolo Fliers Club one of the better known and enjoyed 18-hole golf courses in the Sacramento Valley.
In the 1970s, the Fliers Clubhouse was remodeled to include a bar & grill area for members and a uniquely round ballroom for banquets and other events.
In the early 2000's, the YFC layout was remodeled to accommodate the now-neighboring Wild Wings housing development.
In addition to the remodel of the greens to USGA specifications, cart paths were also added between 2005-2009, contributing to the fantastic golfing experience available at Yolo Fliers Club.
