Default Nor Cal 7/29 -8/7

I will be out in NorCal in a couple of weeks. I will be staying in the Bay Area and S. Lake Tahoe. I need some course recommendations.

So far I have played:
DeLaveaga
Stafford Lake
Golden Gate Park
Anderson Valley Brewing

I want to get down to the Monterey area to check out the worlds courses, but am not sure if it will work out. We will definitely be playing while in Tahoe. I am planning on playing Zephyr Cove and Turtle Rock in South Lake Tahoe.

What other Tahoe, Sac or Bay Area courses am I missing?

Black Mouse is a great course on a hillside in the redwoods (in Felton, near DeLa).
La Raza in San Jose is the best 9-hole course I have played.
If you go up to North Lake Tahoe via the 80, Auburn has a nice course. Grass Valley, Penn Valley, and Toney's Mountain Golf are some excellent courses also in that area.
Sacramento has Shady Oaks and Rocklin. Busy courses, but they are fun to play.

Chico isn't really on the way, but any of the courses in my signature are worth playing.

Thanks for the suggestions! Are the mountain courses snow free? I was thinking about Kirkwood, but the course page shows that it is still covered with snow.

Kirkwood currently has 8 holes in and will most likely be fully installed by the time you arrive. I did not include Squaw Valley in the list because it will probably not be ready in your time frame. All the other Tahoe courses are completely melted out.

I will try to get up there thanks. Do I need a map for any of these courses, or is the navigation pretty obvious?
