Had the course to ourselves!

While we endured a bit of rain (.03" per hour) and some coldness, we had the benefit of having the course to ourselves. Finished the round in 3.5 hours never waiting on anyone. Great day for golf on an excellent public golf course.

Great golf course

This is one of the best golf courses in the Napa Valley area. The layout and conditions are excellent. Also the green fee is very reasonable.

Perfect Day of Golf in the Rain

It had rained heavily that morning and though out the night before. My son and I were nearly the only players at the course and were warmly welcomed by the Proshop's manager. How friendly is the staff? I'll tell you,...after checking in and mistakenly heading out to the 1st tee in an unmarked Marshall's cart (!!! that's right!!!), they saw us go and let us play on without saying a word... VERY, VERY friendly.
Course was wet, but was draining well. Greens, even though wet, rolled smoothly and true (very surprisingly). Sand in traps played well with no rocks.
At the turn we stopped for lunch at the diner and had two 'home made' sandwiches and some draft beer. Perfect for a couple of cold and wet golfers!
Marshall checked-in on us during back nine (which was nice to see even in these terrible conditions).
Absolutely the most fun and memorable round of golf played all year. This course goes on my top five in the entire SF bay area.

Definitely playing again

It was my first time playing at Rancho Solano and everything I heard about the course is true. It's now one of my favorites, just really liked the atmosphere, layout, Conditions, location, from the first employee I met to the Marshall everyone was professional but polite. The greens are incredible, very fast and hard to read especially playing it the 1st time.

Rancho 12/22

The course, considering the previous several days of rain, was in excellent condition. There were several wet spots, but that was expected. Greens held the ball very well and were fast.

jamming the 4 somes out there

I normally love to play this course. Its in good condition and has a lot of interesting holes. THis time was awful because Pace of Play was SLOW! we were a 3-some playing behind a 2-some and two 4 somes and god knows what in front of them. From 2 on it was wait wait wait. Repeated the front 9 instead of continuing a potential 5 hour + round. This was a thursday in the winter. No marshalls doing anything that we could notice to speed things up. Golf is not fun when you spend most of your time waiting to hit.
