Roddy Ranch is one of the most recognized facilities in Northern California. The vision of Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame cowboy and golf aficionado Jack Roddy, the par 72 is a links-style layout set beneath the East Bay foothills, winding along what was once a 2,000-acre cattle ranch. Designed by award-winning golf architect J. Michael Poellot, the golf course opened in 2000.
