We'd love it if you would mention that you found Poppy Ridge Golf Course on the Here Comes The Guide website.
Why We Like This Place
Grapevines line a narrow private road that winds through gently sloping hills to a graceful hacienda-style clubhouse. Set on a hill, the tile-roofed building overlooks the pristine fairways and greens of the Poppy Ridge Golf Course. First opened for play in 1996, the 27-hole course and restaurant is the sister facility of top-ranked Poppy Hills Golf Course in Pebble Beach and, like the flower it's named for, it epitomizes the sunny charm of the Golden State.
Rustic-style double doors open to a peaceful lobby, a perfect ambiance for conjuring up heartfelt messages for the guest book. A few steps further, sunlight cascades through skylights, an appropriate introduction to the spacious restaurant that adjoins the far side of the lobby. The restaurant features a vaulted ceiling and is a picturesque place for weddings, company parties, tournament banquets and more. It comes with a full walk-up bar, and two walls of floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase breathtaking views. The north window boasts a commanding vista of the Chardonnay and Zinfandel courses, with Mt. Diablo in the background.
In addition to its enviable panorama, the restaurant has also earned high marks from repeat clientele for excellent food: Mouthwatering menus for hors d'oeuvres, sit-down dinners and buffets include tempting entrées that incorporate fresh, local ingredients and are accompanied by handcrafted sauces. The Executive Chef selects the menu for each event with the utmost care and consideration. Equal attention is paid to all other aspects of your celebration: The site fee—an incredible value—includes an event planner and on-site coordinator, bartenders, and all the props for the right presentation. And, of course, the staff is expert at helping you personalize your occasion and executing every detail.
If you'd prefer to entertain outdoors, reserve one of the building's wide, sun-splashed terraces with their unobscured backdrops of glistening lakes and lush greens. There's plenty of room for a ceremony on the inviting East Terrace, set with a beautiful white arbor and chairs for your guests.
Whatever the occasion, scenic Poppy Ridge Golf Course is a glorious setting for making merry.
