Every round at the Healdsburg Golf Club at Tayman Park is a scenic experience overlooking the views of beautiful Dry Creek Valley. With the best views in Healdsburg, this wine country course is a treat to play with its undulating terrain and many different shots that you have to play. This course is fun for the beginner and a challenge to the low handicap golfer.
The Healdsburg Golf Club at Tayman Park is a PGA regulation nine-hole layout, which is perfect if you are thinking about having time to wine taste or shop in nearby downtown Healdsburg, yet many of our golfers like to play the course twice for an 18-hole experience As we have different tees for each nine holes this changes the yardage and gives our players a new playing experience.
