The Fountaingrove Club is the only 18-hole, private equity club in Sonoma County, approximately 40 miles north of San Francisco. In 2017, The Fountaingrove Club was almost destroyed by the Tubb’s Fire that ripped through Santa Rosa, but the Club has rebuilt and has continued to expand the campus, including adding a completely new clubhouse, set to be completed in fall 2021 and the addition of a world-class Agronomy Center above the driving range in 2020. At The Fountaingrove Club, members have the benefit of playing our scenic Ted Robinson Sr. designed golf course that boasts spectacular views of Hood and Taylor Mountains as well as the rolling hills of Santa Rosa Valley. The Fountaingrove takes pride in their work, on the course and off. Along with completing daily course improvements, advancements are being made to cater to the poa annua greens on the course to ensure viability for years to come.
