A self-described "cattleman," Jack Roddy made the shrewd business decision to turn his 2,000-acre cattle ranch into Roddy Ranch, which opened its pristine greens in 2000. The outcome was a resounding success, as the club's 18-hole, 7,024-yard course garnered praise from its early guests, including a San Francisco Chronicle writer who lauded the "home-free surroundings" as "the finest golf course that's opened in the greater Bay Area in years." With mounded terrain, relatively scarce tree lines, a multitude of bunkers, and ball washers that speak Gaelic, the course brings the links-style characteristics of golf's Emerald Isle forebears into the rustic hills of northern California. As golfers traverse the grassy labyrinth, elevated greens and tee boxes give way to scenic views of the brown- and green-toned landscape as rising foothills graze the distant clouds. The expansive club also encompasses a 400-yard, three-tiered driving range, as well as a pro shop featuring golf apparel and accessories from Titleist, FootJoy, Antigua, and other top industry brands. After trolling the fairways or burying disloyal 9 irons in the deepest bunker, players can retreat to The Corral, where a full repertoire of sandwiches, salads, soups, soft drinks, beer, and liquor foster post-round rejuvenation and revelry.

Slipping down one of five thrilling slides, winding their way through boulder cove, or stopping to refuel at the Lazy River Café, families relish the chance to spend time together while taking respite from summer heat. As kids hone their strokes during swim lessons, parents can lounge poolside or obliterate calories during a water aerobics class. After workouts, the picnic area provides a shady spot to lay out a lunch brought from home, purchased at the snack bar, or willed into existence. On Friday night, the water park gets a dose of sound waves as DJs spin tunes. Throughout the season, kids take advantage of themed activities on Country Western Day, Princess Day, and Pirate Day. The pool can also be rented out for private parties and functions and makes an ideal spot for birthday parties.
