I loved this course. It's a very unique design and it's well kept. The fourth hole is called "Gem", but I call all 9 a gem. It takes some getting to since we came up from Santa Rosa. About an hour and a half drive. We played during the week and had no access to services (the bar and restaurant was closed). But one of the managers allowed us into the clubhouse and served us beer and sodas from the refrigerator. All in all, a great golf experience.

Everyone kept telling me the 9 hole Aetna Springs Golf Course was closed..... I called on a Tuesday to set up a starting time for Saturday (6/5/2010), no one answered but I did get an answering message asking me to leave my number. I got a phone call the next day and the gentleman told me the course is only open on Fridays and Saturdays. He told me it would be no problem to get the tee time I wanted which was 11:00. I had played Aetna Springs and to be honest it was a "cow pasture" a few years before it was renovated. Other than the condition, the layout was interesting and I actually enjoyed it. So needless to say when I heard it was going to renovated and lengthen somewhat, I was intrigued and checked in every so often to see the progress. I kept hearing about the problems the developers were having with the Napa County regulatory agencies and apparently they want to keep golfers interest so they reopened. The bentgrass greens are magnificent. The fairways are in good to great shape. The rough is tough, especially the second cut which is about 6 inches tall and very lush fescue grass. The layout is interesting and actually a bit short, 3057 yards from the blue tees, but challenging. The short Par 3 134 yard fourth is probably their signature hole, very nice design and almost no place to bailout. The sixth, a 395 yard dogleg right par four is interesting as the second shot from the fairway is blind but fair because the green is framed by two tall Oak trees that give you a place to aim. All in all I certainly hope Aetna Springs gets through their problems with the county, because this course is a gem. It seems in this day when local governments need all of the tax dollars they can get, it seems silly to not let these businessmen proceed and add a serious chunk of change into the county's coffers.

Love the redesigned course - especially "The Gem", the newly added 4th hole. A bit of trouble can still be found as play crosses the F'n Creek several times. GREAT service.
