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.

Fairways were in great shape. Greens and traps could use a little work.

Cart path

It should be back to 90 degree rule and not cart path only. Course is dry enough for carts to go in and out.

Snail's pace -

Cart path only - fine. Waiting on every hole ~10m not so fine. I quit after 5 - hour and a half.

Seems golfers confuse the course for a park.

Course was dry enough except for a few holes to be on 90 degree rule. Other than that, it was fun.

Cart path

Course was dry enough to have carts at 90 degrees. Some holes are wet and golfers knows to pratique common sense and exercise the cart path only rule on those holes. Other than that, me and my partner had a great time!

Where are the marshalls?

Great day, little wet, course in great condition, not my best day playing....
Slow pace and it only got slower....
Golfers look around you, specially behind you if you see people standing waiting or more that one group on tee. Move a little faster, not the time to hit 2 or 3 balls... please....
Yesterday when we got to 10th tee there was 3 groups waiting to hit
