Terrific experience. Scenic, lush, and elegant. The driving range was a great start, as was the putting green. The entire course made for a wonderful morning. We stuck around for breakfast, and that was the ideal end to our time at the Sonoma Golf Club.

As a guest of the Sonoma Fairmont I was able to enjoy this beautiful private golf course. Should you stay at this property, I strongly suggest a meal at the Sonoma Golf Club Grill. The manager was on site yesterday, and he was very accommodating. It was as if we were his only guests. The food was fantastic. My martini... More

This place has the best conditions of any golf course I played all summer long. Super friendly and helpful staff. Sam Snead once called this one of his favorite courses and now I see why. You must be a member or a guest of a member or stay at a certain hotel to play this golf course but I highly... More

Pretty course, very rude at check in and pro shop. We've played some lovely courses and this could have been a great experience but the guys at the pro shop were not at all friendly. Too bad as it was a beautiful day to play golf. Skip it and go into town instead. Great little shops, places to eat, etc

Good place to have breakfast and enjoy the view. The food is always good, very straight forward but enjoyable as well. Nice to get away from all the trendy places and have a nice quiet meal.

We had a breakfast included in our package and decided to test the waters with a luncheon menu which was just so fresh and so lovely watching the golfers tee off . Service staff was lovely and we opted to come for breakfast as well. My scrambled eggs were tossed with all wonderful mexican spices, and meats and veggies. I... More

This is a great place to enjoy a good day of golf in a beautiful environment. It is close to Sonoma Mission Inn, Glenn Ellen , and Jack London Park. Allow a few days there to enjoy the area and the surrounding wine country.

Had a delicious breakfast brunch with good friends. Service was excellent and it is a shame it is not open to the public. A beautiful setting in the hills of Sonoma.

We did not okay this trip, but have played here and stayed here in the past couple of years. It is worth the trip and money.
