The crown jewel of CordeValle is our 7,360-yard, award-winning golf course, designed by internationally acclaimed golf architect Robert Trent Jones Jr. PGA Tour-quality challenges were brought to the par 72 course design, offering excitement and enjoyment to both the passionate and novice golfer.
Defined by Jones as his finest creation, the course envelopes CordeValle’s Northern California landscape of meandering creeks, sycamore trees, canyons, and broad meadows. With this unique blend of natural and designed elements, each round played on our championship course promises to be an exceptional one.
The course at CordeValle features multiple tees and approach angles for varying degrees of difficulty. Strategically placed bunkers with challenging bays, fingers, and folds establish the character of the course. An elevation change of only 150 feet throughout the entire 18 holes makes CordeValle walkable for the golf purist, and demands different tactics and club selections throughout the game.

A caddie acts not only as guide and instructor on the golf course, but also philosopher, psychologist and friend. The Caddie Program at CordeValle provides a team of professional caddies who have defined the golfing experience from the resort’s inception. Whether the “walking experience” or the attention of a forecaddie, a round of golf will be richly improved by this unique partnership program.
CordeValle’s full-service team of golf butlers is a one-of-a-kind amenity for guests to enjoy during play on the resort’s award-winning 18-hole course. While caddies take care of the logistics and technical aspects of the game, golf butlers focus on enhancing each guest’s experience using personal and custom touches. Whether booking a relaxing treatment at our wellness spa, coordinating small bites and refreshments on the green or shining golfers’ shoes and returning clubs postgame, the golf butlers make guests’ time at the resort a hole-in-one.
The CordeValle Golf staff is committed to providing the highest level of personal service and club amenities to its members and guests. Led by Head Instructor Jon Horner, our golf facilities include a comprehensive learning center directed by PGA Golf Professionals; advanced practice grounds with multiple tees; an all-grass range with target greens; and a special short game area for chipping, pitching, putting and sand play. In addition, practice putting greens are located near the first and tenth tees.
