Northwood Golf Club, Monte Rio

4.4
#2 of 7 in Golf in Sonoma County
In 1928 after designing around the cypress trees at Cypress Point and amongst the magnolias of Augusta National, Dr. Alister MacKenzie made a stop along the Russian River and it's majestic Redwood trees.

While you may never have the privilege of playing Augusta or Cypress, you can experience Dr. MacKenzie's famed naturally contoured fairways and undulating greens in a magnificent sylvan setting. A genuine challenge, casual elegance, pristine beauty, affordable green fees, and a signature ninth hole, all make for a most memorable golf experience at Northwood Golf Club.

You are invited to take the tour, and enjoy an ethereal round at Northwood.

  • golfers are often surprised when they learn that alister Mackenzie designed this course . . . 9 holes cut out of the redwoods, making it what I once called "the noisiest course" in northern California...  more »

  • Nice course under the redwoods. Very scenic and worth a visit even if you are just a beginner at golf. Convenient location next to restaurant and hotel.  more »

  • Gem in the Redwoods! This Alistair McKenzie designed 9 hole course is the picture of beauty. Its challenging and narrow, but it is gorgeous. Highly reccomend this golf course. It is way under priced in my opinion.
  • Challenging 9 Hole course. Longer than many. Greens and fairways in fair/good shape. Prices are very reasonable. Cafe and bar for before and after!
  • Had a good day of golf , the course was wide open due to a light rain but that was OK , enjoyed the different levels of challenge for being a 9 hole course, plan on returning soon
  • Been golfing here since I was a child. Pretty fun holes that require persistent consitration to keep an eye on your ball. Easy to lose one out of bounds.
  • This was a wonderful course. If appreciate course design this is a must play.
