Top Golf Courses in Northern California

Golfer Kevin Brandes has played at a wide range of golf courses across the United States, and he enjoys traveling to new destinations when he has the chance. However, Kevin Brandes is particularly fond of the golf courses in northern California and returns there often.

Although northern California is not often considered a top golfing destination, the area is home to a large number of high-quality golf courses. Following are just a few of the most highly rated ones.

CordeValle Golf Resort: Located near the Santa Cruz Mountains, CordeValle has hosted a number of PGA Tour events and is listed on Golf magazine’s Best Public Courses in California at number 8. The course is only open to guests of the resort, and it offers great views of the area’s unique landscape.

Bayonet & Black Horse Golf Course: Offering a challenging golfing experience, Bayonet & Black Horse is a 36-hole course near Pebble Beach. The fees are much cheaper than the nearby links at Pebble Beach, and the course treats guests like members of a private club.

Saddle Creek Resort: More than 6,800 yards in size, Saddle Creek in the Sierra foothills is one of the top-20 best public courses in the state, according to Golf magazine. More than half of the course’s holes incorporate water, and players can stay either at the resort’s lodge or individual cabins.

Cinnabar Hills Golf Club: A local favorite, Cinnabar Hills Golf Club in the San Jose area features bent-grass greens with a fantastic mountain backdrop. The 27-hole course has been around since the late 1990s and is considered one of the best values in the area.
