The Links at Bodega Harbour is conveniently situated along the Sonoma County Coast, only an hour from San Francisco and two hours from Sacramento. Its location perched above the Pacific also provides stunning ocean views. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr.in 1978, the back nine was the original course before the front nine was added nine years later. Jones designed a traditional Scottish links layout complete with rolling fairways and fast, undulating greens. There are almost 100 bunkers strategically situated throughout as well as thick patches of native coastal rough that are just waiting to swallow even slightly errant shots. The golf course is not long but it requires both skill and strategy. The final three holes are not only the most challenging, they also boast the most breathtaking views.

Incredible views, fast greens, meh fairways, slow pace of play even with an 8:50am tee time. Waited on every tee box and approach.

Always on point

Great bargain just for the views. Greens are always solid, a few fairways can be a little soupy in the winter, but drains better than most Sonoma courses. My first choice in the county

I wish we lived closer because this would be my home course. The layout is a fair test even in windy conditions. Really enjoyed holes 16-18.

Best value in the area

This course is all-around fantastic. Every hole is interesting and has a beautiful view of the bay. The greens are fast, true, and challenging to read. This course plays similarly to Half Moon Bay at the Ritz Carlton, yet this is almost half the price. In fact, I like this course better. I highly recommend playing here.

Magical

If you ever get a chance to play bodega bay... you take it. Greens were perfect. Ocean views on every hole. Finishing holes take you on the beach, and if you're lucky enough to ever play the last 3 holes during a sunset...
