Golf in Fairfield!

Paradise Valley, praised as being number one golf course in Solano County and Best Value in the North Bay area, has a spectacular layout that is enhanced by oak studded fairways and meandering creeks. It’s a favorite for golfers who enjoy a walking round of golf and is playable for golfers of all abilities. For the more experienced golfer who likes a challenge, the length of the golf course from the back tees will provide plenty of challenges; ball placement and club selection is key. 3950 Paradise Valley Drive, Fairfield

Rancho Solano, known for having a beautiful country-club-like setting, has an alluring layout with hilly terrain and undulated greens that add character to the golf course. Scenic lakes, elevated tees and well placed bunkers provide interesting features that contribute to the excitement of playing this course. Rancho Solano’s course conditions, like Paradise Valley’s, are consistent and known for being best in class. 3250 Rancho Solano Pkwy, Fairfield
