Golf Course Review Eagle Vines Golf Club Napa California
Reviewed by: Deepsea14, Granite Bay
Played 10/1 in great weather conditions in tournament format. Paired with 3 similar players who had not played course before. I had one round experience a few years back.
The course is interesting design layout with a challenging par 5 to open and par 3 2nd with water left and long at about 150 yds. Water hazards plentiful and the course winds through the vineyards of Napa and along Route 12 on the front 9. The 8th hole takes you to the clubhouse area and snack bar then the last 10 holes are played.
Greens in good shape rolling true at medium speed and not many ball marks. A few were a bit sparse but very puttable.
Tee boxes good shape and fairways too. The rough 3″+ in some areas lower in others. Bunkers inconsistent some had a lot of soft sand others a bit hard and damp. I had to adapt and hit different type shots depending on lie. One ball fried egged for another player in group.
No GPS and reference to course map helpful for some holes with doglegs. A sister course to nearby Chardonnay GC and the courses merge at one point separated by a split rail fence on the cart path. Island green 14th hole interesting with elevated tee and your ready for the undulated green after putting the 13th with it’s more severe levels. Fun course ample landing areas on most 4 and 5’s, for swing away drives.
Driving range small, irons only sign posted. No beverage cart this day. Bar has 5 tap choices and $2 tacos on Tuesday also tasty.
