Sonoma Golf Club captures, with exquisite detail, a time when etiquette and sportsmanship meant more than the number on your score card. It is a welcoming retreat for those who respect the game, and each other, can come to gather in fellowship…to play…to admire the beauty around them…to be thankful.

Designed in 1928 by Sam Whiting (architect of San Francisco’s prestigious Olympic Club Lake Course) this club is the former home of the PGA Champions Tour season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship (2003-2009).

Playing just over 7,100 yards from the Championship tees, this classic layout offers strategic choices and challenges that excite golfers swinging graphite and titanium just as it did when they were carrying hickory and persimmon.

You are sure to appreciate how the balance and blend of long and short holes creates a perfect rhythm as you move through the round. Considered a fair but formidable test, unique challenges help keep you focused on the task at hand. We believe you will particularly enjoy the distinctive set of par 3s that offer a great diversity of aesthetic beauty and personal challenge. In fact, three of them are over 200 yards from the back tees.

 

Our personal blend of warm hospitality begins the moment you arrive

Whether joining the family for a day at the pool, entertaining friends, or relaxing in the full-service spa, the Clubhouse is a warm and welcoming retreat. Great care is taken to preserve a respectful, gracious environment. Your every need will be attended to, while offering the peace and comfort you would expect in your own home.

Whether it is the conviviality of hosted dinners, casual clubhouse lunches, or tasting rare family estate library wines from the club's private cellar by fireside, the Sonoma Clubhouse offers experiences and conveniences like no other:

  • Access to limited-production wine collections from some of the region's most sought after vintners
