Sonoma County offers exceptional value for the traveling golfer. Here, a round of golf is not the big-ticket, high-pressure extravaganza it has become in many other golf vacation locales. It is rare to find a green fee in excess of $100 in Sonoma County, and generally fees will be in the $50 or less range. Advance tee times are not needed at many of Sonoma County’s courses.
Those who appreciate the traditions of the game as well as the playing of it will find Sonoma County links designed by such golf luminaries as Alister Mackenzie, Robert Muir Graves, Ted Robinson, and Robert Trent Jones II.
Course layouts include classic Scottish links, manicured fairways cut into rolling foothills, an exacting test through redwood-lined fairways and many other dramatic designs. Terrain varies from ocean headlands to scenic wetlands where birdies (the winged kind) are plentiful.
Once the home to the PGA Charles Schwab Cup Championship and the PGA Nike tour, Sonoma County features playful resort courses for beginners and challenging links for pin-seekers chasing par.
Whether you are looking for panoramic seaside courses or rolling parkland studded with oaks, redwoods and eucalyptus, Sonoma County is a four-season golf destination. Like a well-structured cabernet, golf just keeps getting better in Sonoma County.
