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.

Tee Time

I play between 12 & 12:30 P.M. when I do play Chardonnay. When I ask if I should just show up at my tee time I'm told they will call me up. When my tee time comes up, the pro shop does not call me or anyone else up. This has happened the last three times I have played there. When I ask why, the kids behind the counter tell me that they forgot. Maybe the kids are the problem.

Super slow pace of play

Super super slow pace of play. Had to quit after 15 holes. Almost 5 hours for 15 holes. Lots of others also quit or jump ahead.

Course looks great!

The fairways and greens are in excellent condition. The bunkers need more sand - that’s my only issue with the. entire course.
We had an early tee time and we got out 15 minutes earlier than the tee time. We had the course to ourselves (almost)!

Conditions OK

Bunkers are mostly hard pan and very bad shape. Fairways just ok for this time of year. Greens were great as always.

Delightful day...

Played many times - great layout, can be breezy - can also be slow - will always be challenging. Greens are undulating - to say the least.

Fun -

Pace not too bad this time

I swore I would never play here again after the glacial pace of play the last time but when a good deal showed up on TeeOff I signed up for another go because I like the course. So even being behind 3 walkers it wasn't bad at all. Enjoyed the course and had a different experience because for some reason they had us start on 10. This course is different because they have 3 Par 3's and 3 Par 5's on both 9s. I have only 1 complaint - a course at these prices (for most people) should have some SAND in the BUNKERS! Hitting off concrete like dirt on the 8th hole Killed my score for that hole. Even my local Muni has better bunker conditions then this place.

Wonderful Experience

I had the opportunity to play this course on July 4th. Teed off about 6:40am and was not rushed during my round. I’ve played Eagle Vines, which sits next door and this course was a little bit better as for a challenge. The greens and fairway were in very good shape. I’m looking to play my next round in the very near future. Great Experience

Great Sunday round

It was a nice day out, it would have been even better if
the pace of play was better, it was very slow for early morning tee time.
Also, the greens were slower than usual, with some unfair pin placements: Number 2, 6, 17, 18

Slow pace ruined the round

Pace was so slow that by the 2nd hole 3 flights sitting on the tee box. Called for a Marshal and they said they would send someone but didn't. Left after 9 holes.
