The Links at Bodega Harbour is conveniently situated along the Sonoma County Coast, only an hour from San Francisco and two hours from Sacramento. Its location perched above the Pacific also provides stunning ocean views. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr.in 1978, the back nine was the original course before the front nine was added nine years later. Jones designed a traditional Scottish links layout complete with rolling fairways and fast, undulating greens. There are almost 100 bunkers strategically situated throughout as well as thick patches of native coastal rough that are just waiting to swallow even slightly errant shots. The golf course is not long but it requires both skill and strategy. The final three holes are not only the most challenging, they also boast the most breathtaking views.

Hope you like a Challenge

This was my first time to Bodega and I couldn't be happier with the course. They checked us in loaded our carts for us and even gave us tips through every hole. Gps built into the carts was also a plus, helps on the holes you can see to well. The wind makes it challenging. The course itself is well maintained, the holing hills make it a very beautiful course with a view of the surrounding bay. I'll be back 100% and everyone in my group enjoyed it as well.

Wonderful

I would have paid to just drive this course in a cart without hitting a ball. Very nice, helpful staff and views of the Pacific from most holes. You have to park your cart and walk 16 & 17 along the ocean, which was cool. They supply walking carts. Best value for a course that I have ever played. First time I have felt the need to write a review.
