Welcome to Northwood Golf Club

Along the Russian River and in the heart of one of the world's finest wine-producing regions lies the most unique golf course you will ever experience. Click on the video to the right and you'll see why. 

Northwood Golf Course combines the magic of the architecture of Dr. Alister MacKenzie (Augusta National, Pasatiempo, Cypress Point) set amidst towering Redwood trees. It's like nothing you have played before, and prompted Travelin' Joe Passov of Golf Magazine to place Northwood on his top-5 MacKenzie courses... in the world!

Golf.com rates us the 30th best 9-hole course in the world: https://golf.com/travel/50-best-9-hole-courses-2020/. And TravelAwaits.com rates us the 8th best public course in California, right up there with Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill, and Pasatiempo: https://www.travelawaits.com/2553431/best-public-golf-courses-in-california/

Mike Dutton on Golf.com says it perfectly: “A good 9-holer knows what it is — intimate, local, welcoming — and avoids what it isn’t: pretentious, punitive, grand. Like Cliff Notes or a nap, a 9-holer fits the bill when you want less to be more."

What Our Guests Say

  • “9 months ago I saw the episode of “Adventures in Golf” where Erik Anders Lang visits Northwood Golf Club. After seeing the video I said to my girlfriend: we must visit this golfcourse some day!! We are from the Netherlands and happend to be in the lucky position of visiting California this year. We made a special stop to play this amazing course.

    The amazing course and the super friendly people made this one of the best golf experiences we have ever had! Thank you.”

    Bram Silvertant
  • “It's truly amazing. It starts in the golf shop with the friendly staff and flows through the Redwoods. I honestly can't believe it's real. I love this place.”

    Tony Shuster
  • “Perfectly kept and manicured and such beautiful surroundings. This golf course has the perfect balance of challenging holes and short par 3s making it a great course for all skill levels.”

    Stefanie Condra Musgrove
  • “Tucked away along the Russian River this Alister MacKenzie design (along with Jack Neville) is a must play. Towering Redwoods line every hole creating an awe inspiring golf experience. I’ve played it twice and long to return.”

    Jim von Lossow
  • One of the most inspiring golf experiences out there. Redwoods nearly create ‘bumpers’ for kicking your ball back into the fairway.. when you get a favorable bounce ;)

    Playing this course is a tradition we look forward to all year long. 🌲⛳️🌿

    Thank you for carrying on it’s incredible legacy with humble pride that keeps this special place welcome and open to all! 💚 Karel Kalthoff
