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.

Absolutely love this course!!

The course layout and ocean views are awesome!
We had a great round on a somewhat cooler day (60-65 degrees).
Just to add to the enjoyment, we encountered a beautiful predator on the course! A lynx!

Bodega

Course is in good shape, today there happened to be a ridiculous number of ball marks on the greens that weren’t there 2 days ago. Today, I was only able to hit in the warm up area for 5 minutes before the martial closed it for unknown reasons. I was originally paired to play with a threesome of women and the pro shop changed my time to play with the next group to be a “better pairing”. Unfortunately the 3 women showed up 5 minutes after the scheduled tee time and pro shop made us wait until after they tees off, which made for an extremely slow round. Would have been nice if they had let us, who were ready to go, play in front of the women. Instead, we waited on every shot for the entire round. Really disappointed today, but this was an exception and not the usual.

A pleasant surprise

We had just played Pebble Beach and this was set up by a family member who lives in the area but had not played this course before. It was a pleasant experience from the get go. Bob, the pro, who seems to be involved in all things at the course, was a pleasure. He was personable, knowledgeable and made the experience excellent. The course was challenging and very hilly with holes winding around the mountains looking over Bodega Bay and the Pacific. It is a course that you will have to play more than once in order to know where to put the ball but it was a fair challenge and the views were beautiful. I would recommend that you put this on your agenda if you are in the Sonoma area.

Not great, but still fun.

Pro shop guy was a one man show. He was great! Very friendly, hard working. Cart was haphazardly disinfected, but we gave it an added wipe down. The cart was in bad shape. Bald tires, bad brakes, sloppy steering. The course is in ok shape. Shows some wear and tear on the tree. Fairways ok. Greens we're good. This course isn't long. But if you haven't played here before, it is a challenge. It's nice next to the ocean. Only one hole actually borders the ocean. It can get busy on the weekends.

Another Great Experience

If you get the chance, go play Bodega. This is a great course to escape to when the temperatures hit 90+ degrees inland. Conditions are usually great and the course gets challenging when the wind starts to blow. Great views and friendly staff. Go play!

Challenging and tricky

Grab some course knowledge before you go. Very tough for a first timer without it regardless of handicap.
Beautiful vistas. Friendly staff and patrons. This is a definite must play if your going to be in the area.

Great day and weather was perfect

This was one of those days at the coast, shirt sleeve weather and no wind to speak of. Greens had been punched and sanded a few days ago so they were a little slow but seemed to roll true. The punched holes were a small diameter.

A Hidden Gem

Beautiful ocean links golf course only 30 minutes from Santa Rosa. Great course condition and friendly staff make this a “play again” golf course. A little foggy the day I played but no less fun. Why anyone would want to pay $200 plus to play snobby Bandon Dunes when you can play this gem for $50.

It looks like a great golf course but it's an hour and 17 minutes from Napa where we are staying. We are on a road trip and we booked this course whe

We entered golf courses in Napa. Bodega Bay is one hour and 17 minutes from Napa. We tried to cancel but no refund, not the courses fault but disappointed in golfnow. I've tried to talk to a golfnow but I can"t get through to anyone and it's not easy to talk to anyone on their website. In the future I will carefully check where the golf course is located before making a reservation.
