Enjoy a round of golf for four (golf cart fees included) at one of the most beautiful private golf courses in northern California! Santa Rosa Golf & Country Club boasts an immaculately groomed, challenging, walkable, 18-hole golf course in a beautiful park-like setting. Santa Rosa Golf & Country Club was originally founded in 1916 on the east side of Santa Rosa by a group of local golfers with the shared vision for a great golf experience. In 1959, the Club was relocated to its present day location and Jack Fleming, a protégé of Alistair Mackenzie, was retained to design the outstanding layout. In 1997, the course was renovated and restored by the Nickels Golf Group. Certificate valid until July 8, 2020.
