This sport entails a skill that brings people to Sonoma County from all over the world because we have unique courses found no where else. From the Links at Bodega Bay and Sea Ranch challenging golfers by wind and fog to Northwood Golf Course meandering among impeccably groomed Redwoods, people play different courses to get different golfing experiences. It’s a game of precision with a strong social element where friendships bond on the green. Try a new course just for the fun of it.Read: Sonoma County Golf Course Guide
Sonoma County 5th District Supervisorial Candidates Answer Questions
Gazette Readers and Voters:
Both Noreen Evans and Lynda Hopkins have agreed to answer YOUR questions. I want to give them each the SAME 6 QUESTIONS - 3 per month - perhaps we’ll extend that to 3 months and 9 questions - we’ll decide as this progresses. They will WRITE 300 word answers for print - then longer on SonomCountyGazette.com which allows more room for longer answers to elaborate on their opinions.
