Mendocino Golf Courses
Sea Ranch Golf Links
Located south of Mendocino is Sea Ranch Golf Links. Their course is on the cliffs of the Pacific Ocean and can give you unbelievable views of the coastline. The course is designed by Robert Muir Graves and was finished in 1974. While it started as 9 holes, in 1995, the back nine was completed.
The architecture of the course is a nod to the courses you can find in Scotland. This unique course should not be missed. The terrain you will find is rolling curves, ocean views, and many different challenging spots. While you will have plenty of ocean views, they have not forgotten about the redwoods too.
You can enjoy a day there in many ways. You can start with a lesson with their pro, Greg Anderson. For greens fees, you can either play a half or full round. Another option for those pressed for time is their golf by the hour. For $19 you get 4 holes and a golf cart.
Little River Inn
Little River Inn is also to the south of us and on the coast. This course has 9 holes, perfect for those who only want to spend a couple of hours on the green. Since it is nestled on the coast and is an Audubon-certified sanctuary, you may see some wildlife while you are out.
For a tee time there, be sure to call to get the best time and rate for your particular day. You can choose to play just the 9 or a whole 18. There is also a driving range for practice and a full pro-shop that will have anything you need to up your game.
Ukiah Valley Golf Course
If you are looking to escape the coast for an afternoon, then head over to Ukiah Valley Golf Course. Set all around you is the most beautiful terrain of Northern California. Combine sloping hills and you have a challenge.
There are 3 sets of tees at each of the 18 holes to provide a challenge to beginners and seasoned golfers alike. The course has been there since 1931 and has been the spot for many a golf tournament. You can book your tee time online easily as well as see weather stats, rain percentage, and wind. Before you head out, be sure to stock up on supplies at the pro shop.
