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.

Just a jewel of a course! Beautiful views .... A 9 hole course that you can use every club in your bag, including your driver on 5 tees if you wish. You might have to “bump” in the fairways a few times....and because of all the tall redwoods, the shade requires teeing off on mats a few times. The greens are in very good shape and challenging.
