Northwood Golf Club

Monte Rio, CA Public


If Augusta National and Cypress Point are the most exclusive Alister MacKenzie designs, Northwood Golf Club, a couple hours north of San Francisco, is the most accessible. The short unassuming nine-holer has rates as low as $25, and juniors can play for under $15. The course plays among towering redwoods that closely hug the fairways, giving the track an imposing yet serene feel. For the setting alone, the course is a must-play, but small, sloped greens tucked between prominent bunkering give the design a uniquely MacKenzie feel.
