The event benefits St. Elizabeth’s Parish — St. Elizabeth, Guerneville, with its outdoor church and St. Hubert Hall, and the mission churches of St. Catherine of Siena in Monte Rio, and St. Colman in Cazadero. These churches have nourished our souls and served our communities for generations. They need roof and foundation work. You support is greatly appreciated!

About Northwood

Taken from the Northwood Golf Club website:

“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 on his top-5 MacKenzie courses… in the world!

Come and visit. See the morning mist meander across our fairways. Marvel at how the sun filters through 150-foot tall Redwoods. See the sparkle of the sun on the river. Follow your golf ball as you send it gracefully toward one of MacKenzie’s masterpiece greens. Bring yourself, bring your family and enjoy everything Northwood has to offer. It will be a round you will never forget.”

We couldn’t say it better ourselves!

Golf Tips from our chairwoman…

Golf cart ride thru magnificent redwoods at Northwood.
The grass at Northwood is cut with hand mowers. The mower blades are sharpened in the Northwood workshop. This meticulous care keeps the course in superb condition for play!

Be sure to enjoy the regional wines and recreational opportunities on your trip to Northwood!
This is a great documentary by a local grower Joe Nugent (Stemmler Winery Pinot Noir Nugent Vineyard) telling the dramatic history of the winery families of the Russian River AVA, starting from the turn of the century, going through prohibition and phylloxera, the great depression and final triumph.
