While it may be best known for the cutting-edge research of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, this mid-sized city in eastern Alameda County also happens to be a golfer’s heaven and a distinguished California wine region. A typical day of fun in Livermore might include a round or two at The Course at Wente Vineyards or Springtown Golf Course, followed by a refreshing glass of a delicious local vintage at one of Livermore’s dozens of wineries.
The Course at Wente Vineyards offers world-class links designed by golfing legend Greg Norman. After a game on this par 72 course you’re likely to have worked up a bit of a thirst. Fortunately, Wente’s tasting room is just minutes away. Take your pick from tasty wines produced in the vineyards surrounding the winery, including Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah.
For those seeking a shorter, mellower game, Springtown Golf Course offers nine scenic holes that meander among three lakes in Livermore’s Springstown community. Afterwards, relax over a local wine at the course’s Springtown Grill, or head a few miles down the road to the heart of Livermore’s wine district, where local vintners like Concannon, Longevity, Bodegas Aguirre, Murrieta’s Well, Page Mill and Retzlaff Estate await you.
