The Rundown

Located in Western portion of Sonoma County, Northwood is one of golf's best kept secrets. The nine-hole course was designed by Alister MacKenzie shortly after he completed work at Cypress Point. MacKenzie routed Northwood through the redwoods that sit on the site today. The course has undergone several ownership groups including the Bohemian Grove, which is located just across the Russian River. Many of Northwood's original bunkers have been grassed over to keep maintenance costs down and playability higher. Northwood is a golf course that embodies the expression "great bones". If you are a golfer that can look past scruffy conditioning, Northwood is a must see.
