Create an itinerary including Bennett Valley Golf Course
The Bennett Valley Golf Course opened in 1969 and is located at the base of Bennett Peak where Matanzas Creek meanders throughout the tree lined course. Along with the native oaks, redwoods and pines, amongst others, have been added to further enhance the beauty of the golf course. It is truly in a country atmosphere without the clutter of houses distracting from this natural setting. Reconstructed greens, along with what has been considered to be one of best maintained courses in the area, has consistently given Bennett Valley Golf Course the reputation as "the best value" in Northern California.

The Par 72/6500 yard course (from the tips) will begin a 5 year fairway sanding program in 2011 to help turn this course into a year round treat. While you're here, after using the course or our driving range (with both natural grass and artificial mats), you can also enjoy the newly constructed full - service bar and restaurant with an expansive outdoor patio overlooking the course and practice putting green. Hope to see you soon!

  • Fun course to play if you only have a couple of hours. It a course for beginners as course conditions are a bit rough. Drought years have made course condition difficult.

  • The course is in Salinas and I enjoyed the well maintained course with it's mature tree lined fairway. The greens were on the speedy side with both big & around the cups subtle breaks. Pro shop staff were helpful & friendly. There is a good driving range with decent mats. The only downside is that the cafe-bar is shutdown so bring ur own food and drinks (they do sell bottled water in the pro shop)
  • Nice layout in east Santa Rosa amidst tall Redwoods especially on the back nine. A little on the soft side after a brief rain but carts were allowed 90 degrees. The $2 charge for capital improvement's was a little on the CS side which reminds me of a resort fee which should be included in the greens fee.
