Tahoe is an amazing place for a vacation in general, and the dg is awesome.

Being from the area, Santa Cruz/ Monterey is by FAR the best. S.F. is pretty amazing too but overwhelming if from out of town. A LOT of one ways in S.F. No matter where you visit in those areas, food, DG and beaches are all beautiful!

I'm surprised it took this long for someone to mention Humboldt.

But seriously, what time of year makes a big difference in where you should go.

I know there are plenty of places to choose, but I would stay in the Auburn area. That way you are semi close to the Tahoe courses as well as the local courses (Penn, Condon etc..). Plus you just can't beat the beauty of Lake Tahoe!
After spending time there, zip over to the coast. Play S.F. and then jet down to Santa Cruz.

If you've never been here before, you should fly into San Jose and then hit the coast and play all the Monterey/Watsonville/Santa Cruz courses, check out the ocean, eat some good seafood, etc.

Or, you could fly into San Francisco, stay at a motel in Daly City or somewhere cheaper than SF, and play Golden Gate Park, Stafford Lake, Skyline, Moraga, and enjoy some fun in San Francisco.

If you've done the tourist thing, or just want to play a lot of courses, then fly into Sacramento and stay in a cheaper neighboring town (Dixon, Roseville, Loomis, Auburn) and play all the great courses up that way - Shady Oaks, Condon Park, Auburn Regional, Hanging Oaks, etc.

Feel free to PM me if you want further info. Born and raised in CA, and I've played most all the local courses in Norcal.

Can't go wrong with this area of Cali. A nice change from Michigan for me. I think the addition of San Fran to hang, eat and check out makes this great. Dela, Ryan Ranch, Black Mouse are not too bad of a drive. We split time this spring, a few days in San Jose and a few in San Fran. I would ultimately pick Stafford, Skyline and GGP over the more southern courses like Dela, Black Mouse...

Though those are fun courses, it probably wouldn't be enough to warrant making that a destination area for someone who is coming in to CA from another state.
