The Course At Wente Vineyards
Accomodating friendly staff
We had five in our group, it was nice of them to allow us out. Even after an overnight rainstorm the fairways and greens were in great shape!

Beautiful course! Nice view!
Very good designed golf course, dropped tee shot on a couple of holes, few holes on top of hills, need pay attention to slopes of greens, if it's uphill, it really uphill. No14, par 3, big drop, agains wind, made me unsure which club to use, gave me trouble. Over all experience was awesome.

For the average golfer the course may be too difficult to fully enjoy. Very narrow fairways and grape vines lining most fairways. Great looking course but a little to tough for me.

Great round for 1st time there. Loved the many looks the course offered and the bunkers are pure powder. Beautiful course. Was the first time playing here but won't be the last.

A Class Act
Wente always delivers. Great layout, conditioning, service, value. One of the best in Norcal in my opinion. Subtle greens, fast but true. Good mix of par 3's and short par 4's. Love the 2nd, 6th, 7th, 10th, 12th, 18th. Bunkers have this heavy, coarse sand that just kills the clubhead speed. Swing hard.
Or stay out of the bunkers. The rough is tough also, deep and wiry A great test and a real gem.

From a newbie and future golf junkie
At first the thought of playing Wente was intimidating (30 index) but from the moment we chatted with the Starter, met our playing partners, and caught a view of the glorious first hole, I knew it was golf love at first sight. Got my first birdie, a couple of pars and my golf partner (12 index) was outstanding. I made friends with the cows and saw the most beautiful hawk but the peace and beautiful playing conditions were unmatched. It's always a treat to have your clubs cleaned on the 18th and the young man was a joy at the end of a long day. Of course, we followed it up with a little wine tasting and a fabulous dinner. A day that will be a long-time memory thanks to everyone at Wente.

Very scenic and challenging course
I had been looking forward to playing this course for awhile, but had always been a little hesitant because of the hour drive over from SF. I'm glad I finally made the trip over to play. The course has gorgeous views throughout, primarily due to its elevation changes. I was expecting to play many golf shots from non-level lies, but fortunately this was not the case. Driving range landing area was spacious but was a little awkward visually because of the uphill and sidehill sloping. Very challenging finishing hole - not easy staying dry on your approach to the green. Overall and simply put, it was a fun round on a nice course.

Awesome view amid vineyard surroundings.
One of the best course in the Tri-valley area. I have witnessed its beauty of colorful late autumn in addition to the challenge of mountain course.
