Playing Eagle Vines is a must. It is a course founded on the belief that nature and golf were meant to co-exist in magnificent harmony, which encompasses all the best features of Napa Valley – vineyards, 200-year old oak trees, pristine grasslands, wildlife, lakes, creeks and beautiful views. Additionally, it is one of the very few golf courses that is not surrounded by homes, it’s just pure golf in nature (but appropriate golf attire is required!).

Member or Guest Fee: $94.00
(Lunch is included & closest to pin winners receive free round of golf at Eagle Vines!)

Registration deadline is March 18, 2016
