Course Overview & hole descriptions

A serene walk threaded through a redwood lined canyon at the base of Mt. Tamalpais

9 Holes 2140 yards Par 33 Slope 107

#1  231 yds    Par 4    HDCP 6

This sloped fairway starter is the true definition of risk / reward.  The risk taker shoots for the open slot left side to roll on to the elongated green which is tightly guarded by a high lipped bunker right. Balls short of the green will work their way right down to a collection area where the player will be left with a blind 2nd shot into the tight green.

#2  186 yds   Par 3    HDCP 5 

Nothing is hiding on this long downhill par 3.  Players launch from an elevated tee box over Warner Creek to a large flat circular green that sits between two large bunkers. 

#3  241 yds    Par 3     HDCP 7 

Straight shot uphill par three with limited landing area.  Aggressive shots are rewarded as there is no bunkering around the crowned green but OB lurks behind in addition to a sloped area left side

#4  365 yds    Par 4    HDCP 1 

One of the hardest par fours under 400 yards you may ever play.  Tee shot from elevated box into a sloped fairway that forces balls right.  Approach shot uphill into a blind pin tightly guarded by a band of oaks left side. This is a hole the first-timer will remember and the regular is humbled by.   All players are rewarded by the unobstructed view of Mt. Tam walking off the green which may be one of the finest in all of Marin County. 

#5  130 yds    Par 3     HDCP 9 

This downhill par three has another another top notch view of Mt. Tam. Tee shots from a grove of redwoods into a broad tiered green.  Bunkers guard the green on both sides while back side of green slopes away. Conservative play bounces it on

#6  250 yds    Par 4     HDCP 3 

Challenging par four takes the player over Warner Creek on both teeshot and approach.  Green guarded by redwood grove left side and all approach shots move to the right upon landing. Well positioned tee shot to edge of creek allows for a shorter approach to this challenging green. 

#7  121 yds    Par 3     HDCP 8

Tight uphill tee shot over Warner Creek into a double-wide green covered by two large bunkers front. 

#8  343 yds    Par 4     HDCP 2 

Dogleg right par four where approach shot into green sloping away is key. From the box redwood grove right side guards the corner.  Green guarded by two bunkers right and back in addition to old growth trees left. 

#9  263 yds    Par 4     HDCP 4

Tight tee shot on this par 4 finish that can make or break.  Need to be long enough to get past redwood trees that guard green on left.  Once there a flip wedge into a tiered green that always is a challenge to read correctly.  

There is no harder par 4 under 400 yards than #4 at Mill Valley Golf Course
