Greens are fantastic. Really have to play the slope of the fairways as fairways are very hard and slanted. Love all the wildlife on the course

Course in Great Condition

We had a really enjoyable round even though it was a very windy day. The course was in excellent condition, with flagsticks in some challenging positions. We have played this course many times, but always find it an interesting layout with ocean views on most holes, and pathways through the trees which are beautiful.

Good course but a long travel to get there

This course is about a 2 hour drive from Santa Rosa so not easy to get to, but worth the ride once or twice a year. Especially when they have a discounted rate in place which they did yesterday as they were just getting started again with GolfNow. Later in the year the rates will be much higher once they get people coming again. Also right now they can only have Sonoma County residents even though the course is less than half a mile from Gualala in Mendocino County.

A beautiful golf day

I have been playing golf at sea Ranch, for probably 35 years. It is such a beautiful track, The front nine wines around the ocean, the back nine is up on the inland, which I find much more challenging. The course is undeniably stunning. It definitely is not in the same shape it was in 35 years ago, it’s still in good shape and beautiful, with stunning views. I have found it to be a very special place, even as it is showing its age, and somewhat neglect.

Highly recommend golfing at The Sea Ranch golf course

The course was in great shape. It was easy to get a tee time and there was almost nobody else there. I could play this course every day.

Needs better on-course direction

Carts and course condition leaving tee boxes needs improvement. Greens good. Difficult to figure out best line of play and proximity of hazards from blue tees. Lost several balls because I didn’t know the layout/where to position ball for next shot.
