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.

WOW!

Been camping at Dprean for abut 8 years and always wanted to play here. We were not disappointed at all even though it had rained the night prior and the coarse was super wet, cart path only for the round. Greens were unusually fast considering the conditions. 930 AM tee time made it a little chilly for the start (COLD).GPS carts that offered shot suggestions were perfect for a group that had never played the course. The staff was awesome from start to finish, awesome conversation, course info and education to dropping off breakfast burritos to us on the 11th hole. The views were breathtaking on almost every hole. My favorite two holes was 16 and 17, unusual but FUN!!
I will play this course every-time we are camping going forward. I think we are going to go back in April and hopefully have some spring like conditions!
Thank you are a great day and experience at the Links at Bodega Harbor!!

Had a blast

Played this course for this first time, and all the reviews about how beautiful this place is, the views of the ocean, the friendliness of the staff and other golfers who frequent this course were not exaggerated. I bought a special on golfnow for an 11:30 tee time for $19 with cart, but I arrived a couple of hours earlier. No problem,...just had to pay an extra $10 to tee off earlier. It was well worth it. With all the recent rain, parts of the fairways were a bit sloshy, but the greens were holding all the short to mid iron shots. Being a links setup, you've got to be ready for some interesting lies. The carts have a GPS which helps with club selection, and there are helpful tips on course management. That said, a few of the holes setup were challenging for this first timer. I did lose a few balls because there were quite a few blind tee shots.
The practice area consisted of a driving range that was more like a batting cage--warm up means hitting into a net. They have a putting/chipping/bunker areas.
I completed the round in 4:15 only because I didnt want the day to end. I easily could've completed the round in at least 30 minutes less as the 2 foursomes in front of me graciously offered to be passed, but I wanted to take in the views.
I will def return again. It's well worth the drive from Petaluma.

Good day even with the wind.

Another good day at Bodega, even with the traditional string afternoon winds. Course conditions for this time of year with the rain we have had were really good. Cart path only caused a good amount of walking but enjoyed the day.

Great course.

Played here before, however was a beginner. Caveat got a hot deal. This course is a beast . Decide when your driver needs to sit in the corner. Consult your fellow players if first time. If you have the luxury of time and are riding a cart scoot up to see some holes( esp no 5 I think) have fun. U can play this course for a fraction of pebble and it's real. Side note I put this with half moon bay as simply awesome.

Great day playing the greatest game

The course was in great shape and it was a great day, but unusual conditions. It was rather warm and there was almost no wind. For anyone who has played Links at Bodega Bay, you know what I mean. It might have been due to the time I played, but the course played fairly fast and it was well kept. There are undulating fairways, but that only adds to the beauty along with the view of the bay. I honestly had I a great around round of golf. The staff is always great. I highly recommend playing here.
