golfers are often surprised when they learn that alister Mackenzie designed this course . . . 9 holes cut out of the redwoods, making it what I once called "the noisiest course" in northern California considering the sound of ball hitting tree . . ....More

Nice course under the redwoods. Very scenic and worth a visit even if you are just a beginner at golf. Convenient location next to restaurant and hotel.

Wow, what a wonderful trip back in time to the old days of golf...we played in the rain and mist under the redwoods, just like Dr M. would have played himself. The course is not difficult but beautiful and easy to walk. We played two...More

Northwood, embellished with redwoods, turkey vultures sail above, nearby the Russian River gurgles its way twelve miles downstream where it unites with the pacific. A 'designer' course, Northwood is where I had my first golfing experience and it was a delightful, albeit a bit frustrating...More

I think this is the prettiest golf course in Sonoma County. The redwoods are spectacular and the course is always in pristine condition. The 9 hole layout is quite a challenge...the redwoods provide quite an obstacle and the course design is extraordinary.

Only a 9 hole course, but you can play it twice if you want to go 18. Lots of redwood trees, very scenic. Restaurant has pretty good food - the milkshakes are really good, and I am told the pie is awesome.

This is a nicely laid out golf course among the redwoods partially along the Russion River. A truly picturesque setting - that can challenge the casual golfer (and even be fun for the newer golfer - which I am!) Also has a small driving range,...More

We were in the area to spend a couple days and desired to play some golf. We are vacation-only golfers and this was a great choice for us. Not crazy expensive, easy to find and beautiful fairways amongst the redwoods. The pace was a little...More
