Planning a trip to Mendocino County California? It’s the ideal place for a much-needed golf getaway. There are two golf courses located along the coast of Mendocino and two others located inland.
Mendocino is well known for it breathtaking coastal scenery and its laid-back more slow-paced atmosphere. It’s the place to go to “get away from it all”.
Mendocino County is just a few hours north of the San Francisco Bay Area. However, you will feel as if you are far away city life. Relax among the towering redwoods, browse the streets of picturesque villages, and take a quiet stroll on a scenic beach. You’ll find unique little restaurants and specialty shops to enjoy as well.
Plan your trip so that you have time for everything. I’d recommend staying at least two nights to take in all there is to do. More days would be even better. Cell service is inconsistent in parts of Mendocino County. It really is the place for a secluded getaway!
