Bodega Bay Golf Links at Doran Beach

His favorite place to take in the view is on the links of course! Demian likes to grab a drink and walk around the southside of the clubhouse at Bodega Bay Golf Links, where there is a fantastic viewpoint of Doran Beach and the ocean as far as you can see, and a bocce court no one knows about.

Demian’s favorite local Farmers market is Healdsburg Farmer’s Market where his family goes almost every week during the Summer.

Demian’s perfect romantic dinner spot or favorite family dining is at Terrapin Creek in Bodega with Underwood Bar & Bistro in Graton a close second. Monti’s in Montgomery Village is another favorite of his.
