Shady Canyon is a private, guard-gated residential and golf community located in Irvine, offering one of the most beautiful areas in Orange County where the living environment compliments the natural canyon surroundings. Shady Canyon’s planners envisioned the prestigious look and rural feel of a luxurious enclave of custom residences into pristine coastal hills. The result is a residential and golf community whose design and amenities achieve the highest level of quality and harmony with their surroundings. This includes the breathtaking 310-acre Shady Canyon Golf Course, designed by the world renowned golf course architect Tom Fazio.
Tom Fazio holds a distinction among golf designers for creating the most harmonious designs of routing and natural terrain. He has three times been voted by his peers as Best Modern Day Golf Course Architect in Golf Digest polls. The private golf club is designed to pamper members with an immaculate 6,700-square-foot fitness and swim center and dining amenities in the way all great clubs should, including elegant formal dining, as well as casual dining. The 43,000-square-foot clubhouse is the center of golf and social life at Shady Canyon and offers impeccable accommodations and features. It sits on a crest of land overlooking the golf course with expansive views of the course and the Orange County hills beyond. The Clubhouse has been described as one of the most beautiful and comfortable clubs in the country.
Beyond the golf course you will find 175 acres of ethereal rural open space within the community. Outside the community is the nationally recognized Irvine Unified School District which includes Bonita Canyon Elementary, Rancho San Joaquin Middle and University High. The school district is known for exceptional student performance in academics, the arts and athletics.
Shady Canyon is only minutes from the Irvine Spectrum, University of California at Irvine, John Wayne Airport, Newport Center and Fashion Island, Newport Harbor and beautiful coastal beaches.
