Type Semi-Private
Sitting at the gateway to the renowned Napa Valley wine district, Chardonnay Golf Club meanders through acres of lush Chardonnay and Merlot vineyards dotted with sparkling lakes and wandering creeks. Native flora and fauna cover the golf course, which also provides a home for an abundance of wildlife including hawks, foxes, bobcats, and even the occasional golden eagle. Besides the spectacular setting, the layout provides one of the most challenging rounds in the area. The rolling landscape provides interesting elevation changes and there are plenty of mature trees coming into play. Several holes also feature water hazards and strategically placed bunkers. Chardonnay Golf Club's greens are lightning fast and the course plays long. One of the most memorable holes, both for the scenery and level of difficulty is the par-3 eighth. This hole is framed by stunning views of the Valley and it requires some clever shotmaking skills.

Excruciating slow pace of play

This course often has tournaments, so your Pace of play will always be slow. I play this course on a regular basis because I like it, but I have never played this course in under 4.5 hours; 5 hours is rather typical. For example took me almost 6 hours to finish 18 today.

Good Option in Napa Region

With the prevalence of wine growing, golf is not big in this area. This course interestingly combines both, a real-life vineyard woven into the fabric of the design.

Some interesting holes, especially the Par 3’s & Par 5’s. Good finish on 17 & 18. Course is much more about precision than accuracy.

Coming from Wisconsin and playing at a high-end facility, one would expect a better condition of rental set provided. I get that it’s the end of the season, but can you change out the grips? Many were slick & work. Not every shaft flex was matched (PW was different from set, 5-iron was different model head). Pretty disappointing on that front, especially for what they charged.

Otherwise a solid, experience with a good design in a beautiful setting. Would definitely recommend golfers check out this track if you’re in the Napa Region.

Almost Ace the hole on #8!

I had a great time out today, playing with three other golfers and almost made an Ace on hole #8. Playing from the green tee box Double Magnum 151 yard, pin placement #2, using 8 iron, hit it flush and hit the right side of the cup, ricocheted the flag stick and roll pass the pin to five or six footer and drained the birdie!

Good course - Slow Play

Course presents challenges and makes you think about shot selection. Friendly staff at pro shop and restaurant. Only drawback was slow play on the back nine. Group ahead of us fell 2 holes behind. A call to the pro shop helped to find the course marshall to pick up the pace.

Beautiful course with picturesque views.

If you want to experience golf in wine country then you need to play this course. Nestled among the vineyards you'll experience many Kodak moments. Staff was friendly and courteous. Course was well maintained and pace of play was decent at 4 hours. I will play here again!!

Napa Golf

Played Chardonnay on a Sunday afternoon,

It was not a busy day for them at all and they let us go out a little earlier than our T-Time (2:45). conditions were very good, weather was perfect with a light breeze. Course design has some average size fairways and large greens. No complaints from me.. I will be back for sure!

Have played this course several times over the years. It’s always in pretty good condition and the pace of play is good. Today we brought our dog which the course allows. We had the second tee time of the morning as a twosome and finished in a little less than 3 hours.

The greens are a gem in this course and of course the setting inside the vineyard, some holes play very long due to the wind.

Good Value

The course is well maintained and greens are in super condition. Lot's of crossing winds which makes it difficult. Today they had a tractor picking up the plugs from aeration. Couldn't play the hole.

Sand traps need better sand. Too hard and wet!!!
