Chardonay is a pretty golf course but on the day I played it the greens were still sanded.I think they charged to much for the confitions.

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.

Great layout multiple tee boxes to play. Golf course was car path only due to heavy rain fall. Can't beat for the price Par 3. Different elevation made it challenging.

Thoroughly enjoyed this gold course. My first time here....and played by myself...so...that was pretty challenging in itself as I did not know the ins and outs of the course. Otherwise...it couldn't have been nicer...the staff was totally helpful...the fairways had a few rough spots but generally the course was in very good condition. The greens have a lot of undulations and were fairly quick...once I got the speed right...things went significantly better. Be careful on the most difficult handicapped holes..they are rated that way for a reason! I will be back!

Had a great time playing Chardonnay. I wish more courses had a (6) par 3's; (6) par 4's and (6) par 5's layout like this course. Much more interesting than playing a course with (5) par 4's in a row. It was a gorgeous day and the pace slowed down a bit at hole 14 as there were a bunch of twosomes playing in a row instead of teaming up to make 4somes to speed up a bit. Love the course and the waiter/waitresses at the 19th hole were great. Even the cart lady (Michelle) was amazing. Had a great time. Can't wait to go back.
