For a memorable coastal golfing experience, try the award-winning regulation nine-hole golf course at Little River Inn. With three placements and dual greens on holes 7 and 9, you can play it like an 18-hole course.
Tucked among the hills and redwoods, it comes complete with such unexpected challenges as stunning ocean views that vie for your attention, and deer, frogs, blue herons, raccoons or other wildlife gamboling, hopping, leaping, flying or otherwise traversing the putting green. It is, in fact, an Audubon-certified sanctuary in addition to being the only golf course on the Mendocino Coast. To complete the picture there is a driving range, putting green and a fully stocked Pro Shop. Little River Inn has stunning rooms and a fabulous restaurant to retreat to after a round or two. Inn guests receive a 10 percent discount on greens fees. Inn guests also have free access to Little River Inn’s two lighted championship tennis courts. The only uniforms required are shoes with non-marking soles; diamond tennis bracelets are optional. Fees for non-guests are very reasonable, and lessons are available from a certified tennis pro.
