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 slow on a lovely afternoon, but we were able to relax and enjoy. The course... More

The golf club is really special on the North shore of the Russian River. Never got a chance to play but we visited their restaurant which was just mediocre. We had breakfast and there was nothing extraordinary that was server, but we enjoyed the scenery.

We discovered Northwoods Golf Club about 20 years ago when our friends were married. We did not play it back then, but we vowed we would be back. Our recent trip is our 5th time at Northwoods. The course was designed by Alister McKenzie, the designer of Augusta. It is laid out among the enormous redwoods and is a lot... More

My husband and I spent a couple nights in Monte Rio CA to celebrate our anniversary. We arrived late in the afternoon and wanted a late lunch. The only place open at that time was the Northwood Golf Club. Beggars can't be choosers so we decided to give it a try. Altho the golf course is right on the main... More

Have played here several times on two different trips. Playing among the tall trees is a kick. People are friendly. Greens are challenging. Not too long & very playable. The crew does a nice job keeping it in decent shape with the challenges of having a lot of shade and pine trees. I am a 10-15 handicapper who plays often... More

My wife and I drove up from Napa to play this gem in the trees. Found a coupon for $5 off in the wine country guide which made it even better. Paid $80 total for us both which included green fees, club rental, and power cart. We were joined by one of the local members Barbara who helped make the... More

After a long journey and arriving at our hotel to be told that they had closed the restaurant for the season, we headed out to the golf club. The setting is amazing set in the redwood trees. We had our lunch outside, took a little while for the staff to acknowledge us, but when they did the service was good... More

Unique experience golfing among the giant redwood trees. Course in great condition and facilities very good. Best to book in the mornings before it is too crowded (in season). Can have excellent drinks on the veranda of the restaurant and bar near the pro shop shop after playing a round.
