With a four-star rating from Golf Digest, Roddy Ranch Golf Club’s 18 links-style holes are cleaved from a scenic, 2,000-acre cattle ranch. The working ranch that surrounds the course showcases 7,000+ yards of soft, green carpeting that is vacuumed daily by Ryan Zuehlsdorf, the 2010 GCSAA Superintendent of the Year for Excellence in Turfgrass Management. Each member of the party sallies forth in their own included cart, with ball sleeve and range bucket in tow, perhaps pausing for stick-swinging practice at the 400-yard driving range, or on the putting and chipping greens. Elevated tees create spectacular vistas to tee off from and demand precise shots with strategic club choice. After working up an appetite on the par 72 course, bellies are landscaped by the fruitful flavors of a hot dog, chips, and drink at the Corral.
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.
