It's not immaculately kept but is not bad either. The course has some challenging holes including one (forgot the number), where the pin sits atop with steep slope from all approaching directions, almost like mini-golf (putt-putt). Creek comes into play on most holes, so the...More

This is the old Willow Park Golf Course. Since new management took off they are spending a bit of money to spruce up the place. They put in a new bar/cafe and remodeled the pro shop. They have new golf carts, new markers on the...More

Great place to golf. Narrow fairways give an edge to accurate golfers. Greens are in excellent shape as are most of the fairways. Can be golfed in 4-4 1/2 hours.

Just down (or up) the road from town. Close in to the SF Bay Area, but very reasonable prices. Not foggy usually, and not too crowded. Perfect for a small intimate group!

I know that it's just reopened from its former ownership but there's still a little work to do before I come back to Redwood Canyon. I'm not an experienced golfer and was unfamiliar with the course when I played a tournament here. There were absolutely...More
