Granite Bay


Granite Bay is a primarily residential suburb of Sacramento located just east of Roseville and west of Folsom Lake.

The place name, Granite Bay, is derived from a bay in Folsom Lake on the east side of the town.
The entire town is underlain by granodiorite of the Penryn Pluton of Cretaceousage, hence the geological basis for the place name.


 

Among the granite outcroppings, mature oaks and natural lakes in the Sierra Foothills, Granite Bay Golf Club is Sacramento’s premier golf facility. Granite Bay is a Certified Audubon International Signature Sanctuary with a championship golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. and Kyle Phillips.
