Very impressed with the condition of the course. Fairways were very full, and greens were good. The difficulty of this course is in its greens, which are very contoured. You must leave your approach shots below the hole. Unfortunately, I hit a few approach shots above the hole which led to too many 3 putts- easy to do on this course. Pace of play was also excellent- our foursome played in a little under 4 hours.

For a public course, it is very well maintained. Good course play. Wind sometimes plays into shots but a great place to play. Range is always good for practice and 2 nice chipping/ putting greens. While they don't have a restaurant for golfers the bar area is good enough for a cold brew when you're finished. Only huge complaint is the bathrrom in the bar area dirty and smells like urine ALL the time.

The course is easy to get to for Petaluma residents. Everything is pretty fine considering it's the last public course standing in Petaluma. We have no choice...

The most important thing is that it is on the Petaluma Airport and if you get a day when they are giving chopper lessons (yes, helicopter), you are SCREWED. The front nine will basically be a waste of time and money.

The back 9 is better on many levels.

Hi, the challenging part of this course was the water and the weeds. If you got off course and into the tall weeds you were sunk.. I think I lost 3 balls! Next time I will be more familiar with the course and should fair better. But nice course, great views, peaceful and I would definitely recommend!

I usually love this course but the greens had been punched and sanded recently. I wish golfnow or the course would tell us about the conditions before we purchase a round. The greens were actually okay, but it was still much slower and bumpier than normal.

Course is in excellent shape considering the severe weather Petaluma has received this past winter.

Greens are a challenge. Most of the slope is back to front so plan your approach shot accordingly. Lot of three putts when past the cup.

Bring something to eat. Food and beverage service offering is minimal.

Overall, real good value.

Course was in great condition! Minimal waiting on tee boxes for next whole....less than many courses in Sonoma County, for sure. Nice wide fairways with plenty of challenges and obstacles, but still very playable for the weekend warrior! Large, undulating greens make for lots of challenging putts!

Overall excellent experience.

It was 80 degrees with no wind and an amazing day to golf.Course is a pretty flat layout without many surprizes although the island green on one par 3 through me as I didn't see that coming here.Course conditions were good although I play many very high end courses so I can't say they were excellent in comparison.Somewhat easy course except for the greens,they are challenging and give this course what it needs to keep it fun.Most of them are what I refer to as a potato chip green and they have similar curves and keep this course fun and challenging.On the par 5's you can get there in two but putting out in 2 is a little harder,in fact if you don't know the layout or the greens you can make it impossible to birdie unless its drops in the cup on the way down the green if you leave it on top.....the ball just keeps rolling.This said know the greens and layout and you could simplify scoring here by a mile.All in all its was a fun day at just 3 hours and 50 mins for our round which is incredible on a perfect Saturday.Although I never once saw a cart girl with drinks or food which could make this treacherous on a real hot day.....so check into that before teeing off and enjoy!

Conditions were similar to other courses at this time considering the amount of rain we have received. Not as muddy as some. Greens were fast & in great condition. Staff must be having a bad day, no smiles. Cool breezes in the afternoon.

My G/F and I were vacationing in Sonoma CA and took a day out to golf. The area received over 7 inches of rain prior to our arrival. So the course was pretty wet. It does drain fairly well, but we were still cart path only that day. The pro shop is mediocre as is the bar area. I'll assume its a very locals type of club. The staff were friendly and the course was in decent condition, considering what they had been hit with earlier. We paid around $40 each for fees and cart via GOLFNOW. I'd suggest a early tee time and then hit local wineries nearby ....we did
