When people think of Napa Valley, they think of wineries, wine tours, wine trains, wine tastings–everything wine. But what do you do when you’re not sipping on our finest libations? One answer for many of our guests is golfing. Napa Valley and its surrounding countryside is the perfect backdrop for a round or two of golf. Explore these courses and see which one fits you best!
- Oakmont Golf Club in Santa Rosa–This club has two offerings, and both are 18-hole options–Oakmont East and Oakmont West. The walkable West Course starts with 9 smaller greens and ends with 9 longer, more scenic greens. The East Course is more challenging and features many bunkers, trees, and water hazards. At 30 minutes from our Inns, it’s a great place that will suit any golfer.
- Bennett Valley Golf Course in Santa Rosa–This course boasts a very natural setting, with plenty of trees and a creek that runs throughout the course. Come see why it was voted “Best Golf Course” by the readers of The Press Democrat of Sonoma County in 2019. Another perk is that it’s a mere 30+ minutes from our Inn.
- Hidden Valley Lake Golf Course in Hidden Valley Lake–This course has a nice, level first nine and a hilly, tree-dotted back nine. The views of Mt. St. Helena are spectacular, and the two acres of ponds and water hazards make this course a hidden gem of northern California golfing. Heading north, this course is about 40 minutes from the Inn, but well worth the drive.
- Healdsburg Golf Club at Tayman Park in Healdsburg–This 9-hole course is the oldest course in the area and is surrounded by a view of the valley, stately oak trees, and Fitch Mountain. The club has undergone many renovations and is looking better than ever. The 40 minute drive makes this historic club the perfect destination for a day trip.
Napa Valley and the surrounding area are truly a golf-lovers delight. Book a stay at Wine Way Inn or Craftsman Inn, and see why so many folks start their golfing getaway with us!
