Very nice and often challenging course
I've played here a few times, and I've always really enjoyed the experience. This last round took about five hours which was due to some inconsiderate people in front of us rather than anything that could be blamed on the marshal (in fact, he was very friendly!), but still, the very slow pace of play did detract from my round. I've had better luck playing in the afternoons. The course is well-maintained and has some very challenging holes. Staff is friendly and accommodating. I wish the snack bar were open - not sure the menu posted on Hole 9 reflects accurate pricing. All in all, I would definitely recommend this course.

A bit wet
Course would be amazing if it was not so wet, cart paths need some work, damaged from the recent earth quake. Did not see the cart girl until 10:30 but she was very friendly. A member joined me and he was friendly as well. Got an early start so lots of activity with all the greens keepers working on the course some were good and stopped while you putted and others just kept on mowing , a bit loud and annoying. Overall nice day!

Wine country golf
Solid golf course routed through the vineyards. My biggest complaints were slow play(no Marshall to move play along) and the course was very wet. Teed off at 9:30 am. The fairway and greens were soft in many locations.

wine country golf challenge
Chardonnay has transitioned from 2 18 hole tracks to a single 18 hole course and works hard to earn golfers dollars.
the GPS system on the carts does not work. Our cart was fine but the GPS never worked.
The actual course offers varying challenges and many of the 5 par threes require forced carries.
The pars fives offer accuracy challenges and many sand bunkers protect greens. The vineyards provide the greatest contest as they can easily eat stray shots.
Tree lined creeks also line many holes making sight lines tough and requiring shot making.
This course is likely best for intermediate to advanced golfers.
the visual beauty here is its strongest trait.

Golfing in the vineyards
A beautiful challenging course. The greens rolled fast and true. The wind was blowing about 30 to 35 miles per hour and the low overcast finally cleared late afternoon allowing for much warmer conditions. Golfers familiar with the course said the wind could even blow harder when the sun was out and conditions drier. Almost hard to believe. The one negative that was a bit unnerving was the constant compressed air guns detonating randomly in the vineyards to scare away rodents, birds and probably an occasional golfer venturing too far into the vineyards looking for wayward shots. Expect to use every club in the bag. By the way, the scenery in many cases was spectacular with many elevation changes. Bottom line, I had a great time despite the wind and cold.

Course is long and demands long drives
Good challenging course where you need fairway woods for most of your second shots
