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.

Abandoned course in wine country

It’s as though the course has been abandoned. I’ve played it several times and have never seen it look so awful. The course is in really bad shape. Greens are OK but everything else is sad. On top of that there was no beverage cart and the call box phone on 9 definitely hasn’t worked in a decade.

Very similar to it's neighbor, Eagle Vines

If you like 5 hour rounds, poorly maintained tee boxes, bunkers without any sand and burnt out fairways, you'll love Chardonnay. We were constantly bumping our balls in the fairway to find some grass and there's no adequate sand in any of the bunkers! Tee boxes were pretty rough as well.
The only difference between Chardonnay and Eagle Vines is that at least Chardonnay had beverage service on the course. Very little service at the pro shop or post round. We didn't try the restaurant.

Beautiful day

Weather and views were perfect. Some dry areas around fairways but we are in a drought. Fairways and greens excellent. 5 1/2 hour play was tiring. Fun day with family foursome and leftovers from lunch.
