Indian Valley Golf Club - Novato, CA

Indian Valley was designed by Robert Nyberg and opened in 1958.  Measuring only 6,374 yards, the course is short by today's standards, but offers a lot of fun holes and plenty of chances to make birdies.  There are also several driveable par 4’s and every par 5 is reachable.  

My favorite shot is the downhole par 4, 9th hole, if you pound a drive you can stuff one right onto the green... or hook it into the lake.  Indian Valley is the only course that I have ever visited offering a “golf elevator” between the 13th and 14th holes, which is shown in one of my pictures.
