The beautiful Mill Valley Golf Course is truly one of the hidden jewels of Marin County, and by far one of the best golf deals around! This 9-hole par 33 (par 32 for back nine) layout is hidden amongst 42 acres of hills, creeks and mature redwoods.

SHORT COURSE

A par 3 course designed within the existing course, lasered by the NCGA and introduced in 2010 with a separate scorecard. Still the same beautiful greens and redwood trees, the “short course” allows beginners, short hitters and juniors the chance to enjoy the game at a pace that is friendly to all our players.

History:

The 9-hole Mill Valley Municipal Golf Course is popular among local golfers. The clubhouse is used for performing arts, concerts, service club meetings, city functions, weddings, classes and celebrations. It was originally a private club. In 1896, a group of Mill Valley business leaders tried but failed to establish one. In 1916, there was another almost successful effort, but WW I intervened. Success finally came in 1919 when the Mill Valley Country Club was established. Hugh and Ida Boyle leased a 100-acre parcel to the club. Eventually the club purchased most of the land. In 1919, it opened for play. By 1921 membership consisted of 111 male golfing, 68 female golfing, 41 non-golfing, 12 juniors and 3 absent members. The depression in the 1930s caused the demise of golfing. Mill Valley held on until 1938 when there were only 38 members. The board decided to request that the city purchase the golf course. A bond proposal was presented to the voters three times before it finally received public approval in 1939. Warner Creek flows through the golf course. The Warner Canyon watershed is named after Dr. Alexander Warner of San Francisco who bought land there in 1887. The family used it as a summer retreat.
