Really? Are we talking about the same course? Because I know that crane creek is wide open and dull but Lake Sonoma is well balanced with plenty of trees and tunnel shots, along with some lengthy holes (holes 3 and 17 come to mind) that GGP can't touch.

Trust me, I love GGP. I helped to build it, design it etc. But if the guy is looking to stay away from traffic on and off the course so that his experience is efficient time-wise, I can't recommend that he plays it any time other than a weekday morning, preferably before 10am.

Sonoma?I thought it might have been a typo in your 1st post, but I'm not sure which course you are talking about? I ask, because I live in Sonoma and there are no courses in or around Sonoma.

I can live with some traffic if the course is worth it. Time efficiency is great, but we should have most of the day devoted to golf.

If you time it right. You won't have any traffic issues. I would suggest an "O" dark thirty departure (5:30am) to GGP so you can be through the marin sonoma co. stretch before 3:30PM. Then play Stafford last and eat and drink at Moylins (or were ever you choose) in Novato until after the traffic chills out (Approx 6:30 pm).

Stafford and Napa is a fun time but so is the ukiah run. I think the ukiah run is better just because AVBC is unique
