the restaurant is a golf clubhouse, don't expect a zagut rating

My Dad plays golf all over the USA and loves to come to Sonoma County and I make sure he gets to play here and have lunch. NIce course and where else can you play among the redwoods ??

This is a great course on a hot summer day in Sonoma County. In the redwoods you can beat the heat. The course is fairly well maintained. It is narrow because of the trees but there are no water hazards and only a couple of sand traps. The restaurant is okay for greasy, ho-hum food and a drink but it feels like it needs a really good, deep cleaning.

We go here twice a week, once for lessons and once to play as we're on
vacation in Bodega Bay. Vern is a fantastic teacher/pro who has helped
my game and my granddaughter's game. He's got an easy going attitude
and knows how to teach. Playing the course is a pleasure in the redwoods.
It's flat and 9 holes, just right for us.

My daughter is working on her golf game and each summer we try a different teacher to improve her game. We hit on a gem with Vern at Northwood. He has taught her more in a few lessons than all the other teachers' combined. The course is beautiful in the redwoods, the play is quick, and the course the right blend of challenging. I would highly recommend you come over and play (it was voted on of the best 9 hole courses in the US) and if you are able, take a lesson from Vern.
