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.

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.

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!!!

Really really fun course. If you're in Napa this is probably the best public course other than Silverado. The entire track winds through the vineyards. Each 9 has 3 par 3's, 3 par 4's, and 3 par 5's. Number 8 signature hole is a blast.

Other than following a fivesome for nearly 5 hours, the round was quite enjoyable. I have played this course a few times over the last few years and this is the best condition it has been in by far. A few of the tees were chewed-up, but that’s the only complaint about condition. I played the back tees and it is a fair test of golf from there. If you can hit your drives at least 250 yards, this is where you should be playing. If not, there are a few other tees to choose from. The bottom line is, if you have time for golf around Napa, play Chardonnay golf club.

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.
