The setting is very nice and a lot of it is in the trees. Many of the adjoining counties, including Marin, Sonoma, Solano have courses where you bake in the sun. Holes are interesting, and it's reasonably priced. You don't have to take a second mortgage. If you're a long ball player, just go to the back tees and you'll... More

As a result of all the rain the previous weeks the course was in great condition but it also kept us on the cart paths. The course has substantial grade changes, lots of trees and great valley vistas. Had we not been playing with a local we could have become easily lost as directional signage on the course is minimal... More

This is our favorite golf course in Marin County, just north of San Francisco. Views of Stafford Lake reservoir, wildlife everywhere, challenging and interesting holes on the course. They have really spent a lot of time and money improving the tee boxes, the greens, the fairways, the drainage, etc. And you can't improve on the views, just beautiful, especially from... More

This is my home course. It is a great course to walk and get in some great exercise with open vistas and great scenery while playing a well maintained and well groomed course. The first hole is a quite challenging par five with an ominous tree in the middle of the first fairway that you have to go over or... More

This is a challenging course due to the topography. There are many blind drives, which can be distracting, both driving and in bound, once on the fairway. There are usually plenty of deer, rabbits and geese (watch your step). It's a very tough walk but fun to play.

This is one of my favorite courses. It is hilly, beautiful and challenging. The food at the clubhouse is good.

Nice place to play because everyone knows each other. The course is in a setting not far away from town yet it appears your miles away. Nice place for locals.

This is my home course. I love it! I have never seen another course that requires a tram to get walking golfers from the 13th Green to the 14th T-box. You start with a challenging par-5 which is uphill all the way and it can set a positive or negative tone for the round for you. They have spent many... More
