Eagle Vines Golf Club in Napa Valley is an 18 hole, par 72 golf course. Designed in part by the World Golf Hall of Famer, Johnny Miller, this Napa Golf Club is not only challenging, but an excellent way to indulge all the senses. Spend a day at Eagle Vines’ golf course and it may quickly become one of your favorite Bay Area golf courses. 

The cost to play in the Cotton Classic Tournament is $225.  Golf carts, practice balls and boxed lunches will be provided for golfers.

Golf club rental is available (at your own cost) for $60 + tax.  

The tournament will be played in a four player scramble format with teams grouped evenly by handicap. Prizes will be awarded to the top teams, as well as individuals posting the longest drive and closest to the hole.

Golf Course Dress Code

Proper attire for the Eagle Vines Golf Club is as follows:

  • Eagle Vines Golf Club requires collared shirts and slacks or Bermuda-length shorts of a non-denim material.

Getting There

The Meritage Resort and Spa is about 60 miles from both the Sacramento International Airport (SMF) and the San Francisco International Airport (SFO). 

It is recommended that you fly in and out of Sacramento International (SMF), if possible, as the traffic from the San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is always a factor when traveling to and from the Meritage.

Travel time from Sacramento is around an hour and a half, and travel time from San Francisco averages over 2 hours.
