ORIGINAL POSTING BY: valveman Member Since: Oct 12, 2006 THIS USED TO BE HOLE 1 PRIOR TO RECONFIGURE Teeing off from one of the high points of the course offers some nice panoramic views. The fairway doglegs right and the green is hidden. A good drive of 220+ yards directly over the rockpile in the right waste area would position you in the fairway for a nice pitch onto the green. Big straight hitters tageting the 150 yard marker in the middle of the fairway stand a chance to drive the ball through the fairway into the vineyard. Stay out of the vineyard! The green sits and is protected in a bowl, which gives confidence in visualizing a solid greens hit. The right side rough is generous for errant approaches. The left side of the bowl's hilly structure creates enough of a chance for favorable bounces onto the green and hopefully into the cup. Beware of the rear pin placements - this is a tripple tiered green surface.

Napa, CA – The Chardonnay Golf Club is proud to announce that our Eighth hole, a par 3, has been selected as one of the “18 Most Fun Holes You Can Play in America.” This selection was made by Golf Digest's long respected Architecture Editor, Ron Whitten and may be found in the current January 2011, edition of Golf Digest. For a slideshow of the entire list, please visit, www.golfdigest.com/go/fun. Designed by golf course architect, Algie Pulley, the eighth is one of six unique par 3s at the Chardonnay Golf Club. Starting from an elevated tee, the eighth hole blends a mix of beautiful views of the Napa Valley and surrounding vineyards, some creative contouring and the opportunity for clever shotmaking by the player. As with any great golf hole, the many nuances of the eighth hole at Chardonnay are easier to appreciate the more times one plays it. For Ron Whitten, Golf Digest’s longtime Architecture Editor, the eighth made the “Most Fun Holes” list because it has "a green that's 125 yards wide with six levels (and a dogleg)." “No matter which of the five tees you choose to play this hole from, you’re going to have options and decisions to make. From the same tee position, you could have as much as four clubs difference in yardage depending on the pin location. The green is truly challenging, but it’s not unfair. Rather, it gives players many options around the greens, and the contours often allow a player to aim away from the hole and use slopes to bring the ball back to the cup,” said Roger Billings, PGA General Manager at Chardonnay Golf Club since spring 2006.
