Teed it up with GK’ers BGarcelon, Istraaatch and Krajan01 on 7/21, 1:06pm – good times on the course and at the 19th hole. I really enjoyed this course back in October last year. With all its big trees, fall colors and beautiful Sonoma Wine Country surroundings. It was fun to come back and experience it in the Summer as well.
This is a relaxing course to play that will challenge your game to be accurate off the tee and if missing the greens some delicate short game touch to score. The greens were once again in great shape, rolling smooth, holding shots and medium/fast. Fairways mostly lush with some dry thin areas. Rough mostly lush with a bit drier thin areas than the fairways. Bunkers had decent sand and tee boxes were in good shape. Pace of Play was just over 4 hours.
The course is clearly a community hub to the area and just about everyone I saw there had a big smile on their face. Good vibes for sure. We grabbed drinks and appetizers in the restaurant after which has a beautiful view.
I played Bodega Harbour in the morning which was ocean side cool temps and then after teed it up here at Oakmont Golf Club under sunny very warm conditions. I liked the contrast. What made it even nicer was the excellent service of the cart girl and affordable drinks. At the turn they have an exceptional snack bar. I did not order food from it but heard their breakfast sandwich is fantastic. I’ll be returning to Oakmont West again. Fun place to play. Posted some more photos so check them out.

Played my first round at Oakmont this week as a tuneup for a GK plays event the next day. Really like this tract up in Sonoma County. First, the drive up there incredibly gorgeous winding through the wine country. Always reminded that this is one of the prettiest places on earth. The golf course was also a real treat. A little tight off the tee especially on the front nine so it was an early test. The fairways were in good condition and the greens were quite nice as well. Overall I would say a pretty average course but definitely fun to play in a beautiful setting. And the food and drink in the clubhouse made for a nice 19th hole. If you find yourself looking for a good spot to play in the North Bay definitely check it out.
