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.

Chardonnay golf course is great course, particularly challenging in windy conditions.

Unfortunately, this day, they starting players from 1st and 10th tees and pace of play was "waiting on every shot".

Also no warning on GolfNow about (a) event occurring later that afternoon maybe explaining the split start, & (b) some punched greens. I had to leave after 14th hold to keep partial round under 4 1/2 hours.

Fortunate to play with a friend who also on a whim that day booked a round through golfnow. The course was mowed that morning and the greens were consistent.

Typical North Bay weather, little wind, rain and spots of sunshine. Made the round fun

Thanks for the positive review! We are sorry that you felt the pace of play was too slow. However, given that we had 150 golfers that date the pace of play was right on target based on our golf course pace rate (as referenced on our website at: http://www.chardonnaygolfclub.com/course_overview/

With that said, I will check with staff to find out why you didn't see a course marshal that day as there should have been one!

We're glad that your overall experience was a positive one and we look forward to your return.

Reservations were made by phone and the pros on the desk were very helpfulo and friendly. First time impression was that we were going to play a country club golf course. From the Gentleman that helped me with my Groupon registration to the gentleman that carried my bag from the car to the cart. It was fabulous. Beautiful fairways and not the easiest greens but it made the game so much more fun. The perfect day of January 31, 2018, sunny warm and just a hint of wind made each and every hole most enjoyable. I had a foursome of friends from another golf course and for three of us, we had never played Chardonnay before. I hope that this is rated in the top 10 courses in northern California because I will be back. The best woman was on the cart that traveled around the course with a great attitude and knowledge of the course. She was on time and in the right place for the front nine and also the back nine. The only down side was sand buckets on the the carts were empty and there was no sand available around the course, except for the sand traps. Suggest full sand bottles before the round. I had so much fun that I will tell friends and family about a great day at Chardonnay. . . . Go Play. . .

I play many times throughout last 20+ years here. We haven’t been here in the last 7 months or so.

Four of us came to play here on January 6th, 2018 Saturday. OMG. Greens are in very poor condition. Very slow, putt would not break properly they have not been mowed nor pressed for two days or more Maybe due to the weather and rain we had the night before but it was sunny and warm that weekend.

Very disappointed. Would not come back here at least for quite some time. Eagle Vines would be my other alternative in this area with much better conditions for about the same price.
