Fun course to play, very challenging.

The 9th hole is unplayable. They should put the tee box a few yards from where they park the cart's on the southside of the building and continue to make it a par 3 like they used to during the winter. When you hit your ball down the middle of the fairway as I did, find the ball plugged in the fairway and can't find a dry spot to drop on within 150 or so yards, then it's time to move on. Make it a par 3 or suffer the slow play and back-up on this hole.

Great course for the money. This course is a challenge in the rainy season as it doesn't drain well, but is a great value and a challenging course even from white tees.

a lot of tricky dog legs and a course where you need to place your shot in the right place. Glad you can still get a decent tee time price in the morning!

Starting with the negative, the course needs some attention. The rough is US Open length and still has a lot of clippings from previous mowings, it’s easy to lose your ball if you get off the fairway even if you watch it all the way. I’ve been playing this course on & off for about three or four years and almost every time I’ve played the ninth hole has essentially been closed, I assume because of drainage problems, they make it into a very short par 3. Likewise hole 15 had drainage problems as well, and there are other places on the course as well. Since I’ Been playing there I haven’t seen anything being done about these issues, It’s about time to put some drains in and fix these problems. This course has a great layout and can be challenging, it can be a great course if those problems are fixed. Even with the issues I still would recommend it, it’s a fair price, the staff is friendly, and also the 19th is small but ok, a good place to finish the day.

I've driven by this course many times. Decided to play it mid-day this past Sunday as a twosome. My worst expectations came true on this round. The day was beautiful...hadn't rained in nearly two weeks and the course looks like it could be nice. First, nearly every hole was muddy on the fairways and hadn't been tended to in a while. Every fairway had white flowering weeds which is a problem for a game that mostly uses white balls. It made the round lengthy when you are limited to cart paths only and you are not sure where exactly your ball went. I didn't miss the first five fairways on drives but lost four balls off the tee box becasue it was either camoflauged by the weeds or plugged in the mud or in the standing water on the fairways. Walking on fairways where my shoes sunk in the mud makes for a very frustrating round and an impossible ball search.

I wouldn't so much say we enjoyed the round as much as we were resigned to it. Its January, I get it, but if you want to charge to play...you have to manage and maintain the course to a playable level. Napa was not. They say the worst day golfing is better than the best day working...it was not true on this course on this day. Perhaps I'll play it in summer if the price is right and the course is dry as it does look like it has interesting holes...but certainly not for the next several months at the very earliest.

My local course, napa golf, was in excellent shape.

Greens were perfect, fairways were good, sand traps were average, rough was okay

9th fairway was very wet , as usual during the winter months, the rest of the course has been improving over the last couple of years

It hasnt rained for a while now. Too many clumps of cut brown dead grass in the rough. Like the dont cut the rough but once a month. The green and fairways are nice. Tee boxes and rough make me never want to spend $ here again. I wont play here unless it 10 bucks.

If your not looking for a fancy, stuffy course and you are a beginner, this is s good course. It seemed to be a little neglected and in need of repairs. We are horrible golfers so for us it was s fun day day but if your a serious golfer you might be disappointed.

Our club played this course six months ago. The deterioration since then was dramatic. The greens were the highlight, albeit a bit slow. I understand the damage by borrowing pigs, but bare spots, poor bunkers, rough cart paths, carts in poor repair, no water in ball washers, (plus skunk odor in the clubhouse) added up to a disappointing experience, despite the discounted price. It's a great old course and a real asset to the area. Just hope they can turn it around.

Napa Golf course (Kennedy) was the best conditions overall since moving to Napa in 85.

Tee boxes to greens were amazing, Greens were perfect, Sand traps were good, Fairways are cut short with little rough grass outlining the fairways, Tee boxes were good. Course has plenty of challenges with water hazards on 12 holes. Great layout

The course played well except for 11 what is up with the left side around the green. The rest of the course was in great shape and the pace of play was the best I have ever experienced there . Also the person you checked me in was just so positive that it started my round off nicely. I will be back to play soon . Thanks for a great round .

I have been playing the course for 40 plus years. It's had it's issues, but is getting better & better. The dead trees have been removed, but that isn't the courses fault it's just that most of the tree's have lived out their lifespan. The course was built in 1968. I think with the first cut of rough made just and inch high & the greens brought back to their original speed, like when they are verticut it presents more than a challenge to even the most experienced golfer.
