“Knockwood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

We call it knockwood because there are so many trees to hit... maybe it reflects our poor skills. A beautiful course with much variety. Nice restaurant where you can sit outside and watch golfers tee off.

“lush and green”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

This 9 hole course has a lot of trees. Just ask any golfer. But the course is beautiful, and kept in good shape. It's also a good place for lunch or dinner.(indoor and outdoor seating)

“At first a little disappointed only 9 holes but than whowww!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We were just driving by to Jener and found this beauty. A gem designed by the iconic Alister MacKenzie (think Cypress, Augusta, Pasatiempo) this nine holer stands up very well as an example of MacKenzie's work. Also standing up well (even at his age) as is Al, the fabulous starter/host. My wife fell in love with him first and the golf course second - so much so we're going to try and find a rental home on the course for next October so we can enjoy this area more.

This is a must when visiting the area if you play golf. The golf pro, Vern is also the best I have ever met.

“Beautiful course and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

Loved the peace and quiet of this course. The adjacent restaurant and bar is also a good place to grab a good meal and cocktail amongst the Redwoods
