Detailed description

Adobe Creek Golf Course is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Petaluma, California.

Adobe Creek golf course first opened for play in 1990. The par-72 course was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr.

This links-style course features a few trees and rolling fairways, which are forgiving except for the strategically-placed bunkers. Wind is a factor during the spring and summer months, and it will always come from the west causing most of the holes to be played in a crosswind. Seventy-two bunkers are positioned around the course, along with a stream and water coming into play on six holes. The greens are often found to be challenging to putt due to their subtle breaks.

Adobe Creek golf course plays to a maximum distance of 6,886 yards for a course rating of 73.8 and a slope rating of 131.

Adobe Creek Golf Course closed December 8, 2010. Adobe Creek reopened in 2011 as reported by a fellow golfer/golf course reviewer on 7 October 2011.

The course closed in January 2017. 

Richard Coombs, bought the course out of bankruptcy, in 2011. Coombs already leases the other public course in Petaluma, Rooster Run, less than two miles away.

Some Adobe Creek homeowners' theorize that  Coombs knew he was losing players to Rooster Run and decided he could make money if he could get control Adobe Creek, close it, build houses, and consolidate Petaluma golf play at Rooster Run.
