Course Review: Poppy Ridge

It doesn't get much better than Poppy Ridge.

The Northern California Golf Association-owned facility has three nines, which are combined in different variations to provide a variety of golf experiences. While the nines are similar in style there are certain differences and unique characteristics to each - for example generous sized greens. There is hardly a tree on the gently rolling property, but the well defined fairways still require straight driving and reward that skill with much easier approach shots on the par 4s and chances to get home in two on the par 5s.

The course is definitely challenging, but very fair and playable. The Merlot nine can play very difficult when the wind is blowing. Fortunately, there are many calm, peaceful days at this beautiful spot in the Livermore Valley. If you are an NCGA member, Poppy Ridge may be the best golf value in the state of California.

Other important notes about Poppy Ridge - it has the best and friendliest golf staff in the area, and the practice facility is second to none.
