Northwood Golf Club, Monte Rio

#2 of 7 in Golf in Sonoma County
Golf Course · Hidden Gem · Outdoor Activity
In 1928 after designing around the cypress trees at Cypress Point and amongst the magnolias of Augusta National, Dr. Alister MacKenzie made a stop along the Russian River and it's majestic Redwood trees.

While you may never have the privilege of playing Augusta or Cypress, you can experience Dr. MacKenzie's famed naturally contoured fairways and undulating greens in a magnificent sylvan setting. A genuine challenge, casual elegance, pristine beauty, affordable green fees, and a signature ninth hole, all make for a most memorable golf experience at Northwood Golf Club.

You are invited to take the tour, and enjoy an ethereal round at Northwood.
