Lost in space.

The course is in good shape for the most part. The greens are fast. The bunkers as is the case at most courses suck. The one thing that will make me not go back there is The lack of yardage markers they're nowhere to be found I found two on the entire golf course this is just unacceptable learning come on no hundred 150 200 not a tree to mark 15 0 nothing no sprinkler heads marked nothing I don't understand what is so difficult anyways course was nice people were nice they just need some yardage markers

Great layout!

Played the combo tees. Challenging and rewarding! Greens were quick! Even saw some deer on the course.

Not bad

I have planned to play Greenhorn ever since it opened 25 years ago. I finally got around to it. I played the combo tees and found the course to be very short, pretty easy, and somewhat quirky. There are at least three or four holes where local knowledge is important.
The course was in generally good condition though I have rarely seen bumpier fairways...not mounds. Bumps. The tees are pretty uneven as well.
It is a long drive from Sacramento and there is a much better course in Copperopolis, just a few miles from Greenhorn. I may play there again but time will tell.

Nice

This is a very nice course. Fairways, greens, sand traps all in great condition. The holes are unique, with elevation changes and some scenic views. Water comes into play on a few holes.
