Located in the heart of the Livermore Valley Wine Country, the 27-hole Rees Jones design is reminiscent of the heathland courses of Scotland. Poppy Ridge Golf Course opened in 1996 and is easily accessible to approximately 90,000 of the nearly 150,000 NCGA members who live within a 65-mile radius of the course.
The Merlot, Chardonnay and Zinfandel nines offer challenging and enjoyable golf for any level of player. Each nine measures about 3,500 to 3,600 yards from the black tees. Carved in the rugged terrain of the Livermore foot-hills, Poppy Ridge offers spectacular views of the golf course and beyond. Each hole is shaped by extensive bunkering, giving the course a true links feel.
Poppy Ridge was rated by Zagat Guide as one of the top 15 courses in the nation for value. The course welcomes public play and it is recommended for visitors to join the NCGA to receive a 45% discount off the public green fee.
Remarkable views of rolling hills, four sets of tees, excellent course conditions, 27 championship golf holes, friendly staff, indoor and outdoor restaurant facilities and affordable prices make this a true value in Northern California.

Designed by Rees Jones, 1995 Golf Digest Architect of the Year, this 27-hole layout is much different than Poppy Hills in that it has only one original tree. That oak can be seen on the eighth hole of the Chardonnay course, one of many picturesque holes at Poppy Ridge.
