Situated in the hills of Marin County, half an hour’s drive north of the Golden Gate Bridge, the course at Meadow Club is laid out within a glorious Bon Meadow property, where the waters of the Bon Tempe creek are brought into play from time to time.

Herbert Fowler and Vernon Macan were both approached to design a course within the rolling landscape above San Francisco a couple of years before Robert Hunter, the millionaire socialist, agent and publicist for Alister MacKenzie, secured his client’s first American commission.

Mike DeVries embarked on a new millennium project to restore the layout, taking six years to expand the greens to their original size, rework the bunkers to the style originally intended by their esteemed designer and manage the many trees that had been planted down the decades.

Today, the course extends to a modest 6,611 yards, with notable holes including the 420-yard left doglegged 7th and 450-yard 9th. Parallel par fives at the 544-yard 13th and 508-yard 15th share the same fairway bunkers and these two holes are separated by a lovely par three that plays across a pond at the picturesque 14th.

Mike DeVries kindly provided the following comments:

“We restored the golf course from 1999-2005 and since then have worked to preserve the golf course features while finishing some smaller projects that were left over due to budget or timing at the time.

Additional work includes adding “green” tees (even further than the forward tees), cart path realignment, some drainage/creek work, continued tree management (ongoing, but restricted due to local ordinances), and improvements to the practice facilities.

It is a true restoration of MacKenzie’s first design in the USA, and I was able to see where the original greensmix was located when we lifted sod up during the work.”
