Detailed description of Mill Valley Golf Course

Mill Valley Golf Course, is a Public, 9 hole golf course located in Mill Valley, California.

The course opened for play in 1919. The course was laid out by Dad Clark, a greenskeeper and professional golfer. His son, Bob Clark was the first professional employed by the club.

Membership grew in the 1920's to 140, far from the projected total of 300. Virtually all of the memberships were from Mill Valley as Belvedere and San Rafael each had a club and course. The depression in the 1930's caused the demise of these golf courses as well as one located in Sleepy Hollow. Mill Valley held on until 1938 although membership had declined to only 38 members. The property improvements were appraised at $40,000 and the members voted to offer it to the city for $25,000. The city voters approved the purchase on the third attempt, January 29, 1939.

Since the public course's operation by the City of Mill Valley, some financial assistance had been needed in the past. Generally speaking, however, its operation has been self-sufficient and provided revenue to the Park and Recreation Department each year.

Mill Valley Golf Course plays to 4,123 yards of golf from the back tees if you play 18 for a course rating of 63.7 and it has a slope rating of 107 on Blue grass. Par for 9 holes is 33, for 18 holes is 66.

Green fees are $12 (resident) or $17 (non-resident) for 9 holes on weekdays, and $14 (resident) or $19 (non-resident) on weekends. Junior, senior, and twilight rates are also available during the week.
