Redwood Canyon Golf Course is celebrated as one of the Bay Area’s most enjoyable golf destinations. Located in Castro Valley, the 18 hole golf facility is nestled away among the rolling hills of the east bay and is home to some of the most beautiful golf scenery in Northern California. Completely surrounded by breathtaking natural wild life including the San Leandro creek which comes into play on nearly every hole, the course offers some of the most unique golf around and is truly enjoyable for golfers of all levels. We also have a one-of-a-kind water driving range, which has become very popular among visitors to our club.
