Sitting at the gateway to the renowned Napa Valley wine district, Chardonnay Golf Club meanders through acres of lush Chardonnay and Merlot vineyards dotted with sparkling lakes and wandering creeks. Native flora and fauna cover the golf course, which also provides a home for an abundance of wildlife including hawks, foxes, bobcats, and even the occasional golden eagle. Besides the spectacular setting, the layout provides one of the most challenging rounds in the area. The rolling landscape provides interesting elevation changes and there are plenty of mature trees coming into play. Several holes also feature water hazards and strategically placed bunkers. Chardonnay Golf Club's greens are lightning fast and the course plays long. One of the most memorable holes, both for the scenery and level of difficulty is the par-3 eighth. This hole is framed by stunning views of the Valley and it requires some clever shotmaking skills.

Nice course. Well groomed

This is a challenging course to play and to walk. A few of the holes are deceptively challenging. Bunkers are well placed and frustrating enough to cause me to sigh. The beverage cart is always there as well. Great day.

Nice Wednesday Golf

It was a beautiful morning at Chardonnay, light breeze, sunny skies. It did warm up and we decided to head in to the lounge after the 14th hole. The beer was delicious and nice and cold.
Lovely golf course but the traps and cart paths need a lot of attention, both very bad.

we were 4 minutes late for our 12 noon tee time. The person in the pro shop would not let us out. He said there was a tournament. We called and told them we took a wrong turnoff and would be a few minutes late. He said if we are late he won't be able to get us out there.We had to wait 1 and 1/2 hours to get out there. I was disappointed in their strictness It was a beautiful day so we decided to wait.

Don't follow a Tournament

Played 6/14/21 But followed a Tournament and the pace was 20 Minutes a shot as people were looking for their balls in the Vineyards. Nice course but it can be slow.

Unfriendly staff, delayed tee time and extremely slow play

I was looking at some souvenirs in the tee shop then went to check in; the employee at the counter points to the souvenir markers and asks me "how many did you grab" so he could charge me. I didn't grab any. I felt like he was accusing me of shoplifting since I obviously didn't put any souvenirs on the counter to pay for.

He said our tee time would be delayed a little and he would fit us in. Seems like if we have a tee time, it's ok to be delayed but he shouldn't have to squeeze us in. Apparently, they had a shotgun tournament that was finishing up so he was fitting in reserved tee times between the foursomes in the tournament. This caused angry tournament players who accused us of cutting into their tournament even though we were already delayed 40 minutes from our tee time. Starter also was not consistent in announcing who was on the tee box and second up. At one time, he announced that the group on the tee box (which he previously announced) was an error and they had to step off the tee box to let the tourney group play. The day was a big mess. I had reservations for today but cancelled them.

Great weather but

As always the course was in great condition and the weather was perfect. However, I'd advise not to book a tee time when they have a morning tournament. My tee time was at 1pm and for the first 9 holes we waited on every tee, with a couple of them having 2 or 3 groups also. The back nine played much quicker, since the tournament groups finally finished. Looking forward to visiting again.

The scenic Silverado

Country Club atmosphere, well organized, very polite staff.....No golf course is absolutely perfect, there will always be that slow foursome. Just plan on a 5 hour round, and you'll be fine.

Truly Disappointed Today

Had a great discount for my spouse and I to play today, we even showed up 90 minutes before our tee time to enjoy a meal. Despite the delayed service the food was good, the restaurant seemed very short on staff, but there was only one other couple dining in. Regardless, our tee time was at 4pm, and it was delayed by 15 minutes. Once play started, we were backed up at each hole, with at times there were three groups waiting to tee off. After we played six holes in two hours and twenty minutes we decided to stop playing. By the way, there was no starter or Marshall on the course.
