Napa Golf Course At Kennedy Park

  266 Reviews

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.

He would not play this course again.

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

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.

Course was very muddy and in very poor condition. I quit after 9 holes.

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.
