As the NCGA’s home course, Poppy Ridge is your easy escape from the everyday. Take in the beauty, wide-open spaces, and never-ending variety of 27 holes of pure, links-style golf. Designed by Rees Jones, the three nines are as distinct as the grape varietals they are named after – Merlot, Chardonnay and Zinfandel. They sweep through 3,000 acres of the toasted, savannah-covered hills that roll through the serene backdrop of the Livermore Valley Wine Country.
The fairways and greens pop from their golden surroundings, and vineyards just beyond the property provide a beautiful backdrop that can feel almost endless. The routing of Poppy Ridge is clever in that all three nines close with a lakeside green in front of the majestic hacienda-style clubhouse. While the nines finish similarly, each is unique, as there is nearly 300 feet of elevation change between them.
This creative course design and sense of serenity of Poppy Ridge, paired with the NCGA’s high standard of hospitality and a focus on personalized service, provides more than just a spectacular place to play. It’s a place to call home.
