Northwood, embellished with redwoods, turkey vultures sail above, nearby the Russian River gurgles its way twelve miles downstream where it unites with the pacific. A 'designer' course, Northwood is where I had my first golfing experience and it was a delightful, albeit a bit frustrating...More

I think this is the prettiest golf course in Sonoma County. The redwoods are spectacular and the course is always in pristine condition. The 9 hole layout is quite a challenge...the redwoods provide quite an obstacle and the course design is extraordinary.

Only a 9 hole course, but you can play it twice if you want to go 18. Lots of redwood trees, very scenic. Restaurant has pretty good food - the milkshakes are really good, and I am told the pie is awesome.

Nice resturant looking out at golf course. Regular menu with nightly specials. Breakfast all day. Many locals meet and eat here.

The golf club is really special on the North shore of the Russian River. Never got a chance to play but we visited their restaurant which was just mediocre. We had breakfast and there was nothing extraordinary that was server, but we enjoyed the scenery.

Have played here several times on two different trips. Playing among the tall trees is a kick. People are friendly. Greens are challenging. Not too long & very playable. The crew does a nice job keeping it in decent shape with the challenges of having...More
