Just minutes from California's Silicon Valley in the foothills of California's Santa Cruz mountains between Monterrey and San Jose. CordeValle Golf Club is located at 1 Cordevalle Club Dr, San Martin, CA. The course presents beautiful views and an island of tranquility isolated from the bustle of urban life.

Luxurious Resort and Golf Experience

More than just a great golf course, Rosewood CordeValle is a five-star luxury resort offering matchless concierge service to its members and guests. Unlike most upscale private courses, CordeValle allows members to send unaccompanied guests out to play the course. Guests of the property's Auberge Hotel also enjoy playing privileges, in addition to exceptional service and a world-class spa and restaurant.

Elegant Golf Course Design

The golf course matches the elegance and refinement of the lodging. By preserving most of the course's ample acreage in its natural state, and threading holes through the lower portions of the site. Designer and acclaimed golf architect Robert Trent Jones II preserved dozens of extraordinary ancient oaks and sycamores along the central creeks that drain surrounding hills. Aside from the hotel, only vineyards and estate homes in the far distance are visible to golfers.

Front Nine and Memorable Finish

The front nine begins with a par four, a par three, and a par five, and sustains this appealing tempo throughout. CordeValle's bunkers recall the classic styling of such great California courses as Cypress Point and San Francisco Golf Club. The bold faces of the greenside bunkers are visible from the tees, even on par fives. The course culminates in a par five on which the ideal drive stops short of a creek and players face a choice between laying up and preserving an almost certain par, or going for the green in two and possibly scoring birdie or eagle.

World-Class Golf and Resort Amenities

As both a private course and resort, CordeValle is peerless among recently designed courses in northern California and provides a world-class golf experience for members and guests alike. CordeValle requires that players be hotel guests or club members to play the course and access the facilities. A caddie program complements the enjoyment of walking CordeValle, which has the ambiance of a timeless traditional golf club. Robert Trent Jones Jr. says, “CordeValle is one of those pure ‘core golf' experiences.”

Luxury Retreat Features

The club not only features world-class golf, it's also a luxury retreat. With an outdoor pool, a luxury spa, outdoor tennis courts, a fine dining restaurant, and wine tasting there is something for everyone.
