There are plenty of challenges on this course. There is water to cross and the greens are fast and convoluted. But we had a great time. The views from various points on the course are great – grape vines and hills.

Some of the shots to the green are nearly blind because of the growth of trees. These probably should be pruned back.

Played Chardonnay yesterday...course was in great shape...greens rolling true, fairways clearly defined and tight, rough fairly uniform. If a superintendent can't grow grass after all the rain we've had, he should quit the biz. That is clearly NOT the case on this track. Greens were rolling around 10, very fair for the windy conditions, and good pin placements clearly defined on the green chart. Pace of play was awesome...no one in front of us or behind us. Only 2 negatives - the bunkers are a real hazard as there is little sand in them and very inconsistent - typical of many courses in the area after the drought; The snack shop was closed at the turn - probably due to lack of people out on the course. Overall, it was a great day on a beautiful, fun and challenging course in 15+ mph wind.

I played an early morning round as a single and got around in less than three hours, thanks also to a couple of foursomes that had me play through. I was happily surprised with the overall course design. I didn't feel there were any gimmicky holes, and the five sets of tees should suit anyone. The course conditions were very good; the greens all rolled about the same and were quite smooth. There was quite a bit of elevation change. There is a lot of space between some of the holes, which coupled with the elevation change and the heat of the day would make it a difficult course to walk - I'm not sure if walking is supported there. The only bad condition I observed related to the bunkers, which previous golfers had not raked out, nor had they been groomed by the staff. It's unfortunate enough to find yourself in a bunker, let alone in a deep heel depression that makes the next shot very difficult to play well, right?

I also appreciated that there were quite a few water coolers in place with icy-cold, fresh, water. So many courses have funky-tasting water that make you wonder if the coolers have ever been cleaned.

The staff was friendly and helpful, and the facilities were spotless, On the whole, a great golf experience; I'll be back.

It doesn't get more scenic than this course. The facilities are dated and it's definitely a low key public course but playing on a course surrounded by vineyards is a memorable experience. Truly spectacular.

One of my favotite courses in the bay area. Even though we have had a ridiculous amount of rain this winter, the course is in very good shape and the greens are firm. Highly recommend this course if you are looking for a well maintained, challenging course.

The course was quite wet in several places but considering the amount of rain Napa has gotten this year I think the course is in remarkable shape. The tee boxes and greens are in quite good condition and even though the fairways are a little soft they're all well groomed and quite playable.

I have played this course many times. The layout is fabulous and very challenging, great par 3's and 6 par 5's.

Unfortunately, the range was closed, the greens were plugged and sanded(not noted) and the tees were in rough shape.

A truly great links course.

Due to all the recent rains the course was soggy, the driving range closed and it was cart path only. That being said, the potential for a wonderful round is there. The layout is challenging and the views are magnificent. I'll definitely play here again to get the full affect.

This is the second time I've golfed Chardonnay in the last year or so. It's a fun course but was disappointed both times with the fairway conditions, very soggy despite no rain. I say this because the day before I golfed at a nearby course where conditions where much better. Also, the sand traps were in pretty bad shape.

This course has seen better days and for the intermediate golfer can be quite challenging.

All the par 3 holes have drop areas and they need them since it seems that the way they aligned the tee boxes, hole 5 and hole 12 are almost inaccessible from the white tees. All in all the course was what I expected it to be.

I'd say it's a great course but you are definitely paying for the area in which it sits in. Fifty five bucs on a Tuesday at 845 in the morning is a little costly. Other than that the course was in great condition. The greens a little so so but overall a great day on the course.
