GOLF IN THE REDWOODS – Just down the road from Dawn Ranch Resort a cottage style hotel, Northwood Golf Course combines the magic of the architecture of Dr. Alister MacKenzie (Augusta National, Pasatiempo, Cypress Point) set amidst towering Redwood trees. It’s like nothing you have played before, and prompted Travelin’ Joe Passov of Golf Magazine to place Northwood Golf on his top-5 MacKenzie courses… in the world!
In 1928 after designing around the cypress trees at Cypress Point and amongst the magnolias of Augusta National, Dr. Alister MacKenzie made a stop along the Russian River and it’s majestic Redwood trees.
While you may never have the privilege of playing Augusta or Cypress, you can experience Dr. MacKenzie’s famed naturally contoured fairways and undulating greens in a magnificent sylvan setting. A genuine challenge, casual elegance, pristine beauty, affordable green fees, and a signature ninth hole, all make for a most memorable golf experience at Northwood Golf Club.
