Like playing on D.G.

This course was like playing on decomposed granite. The other golfers would comment when their ball landed on a patch of GREEN grass…sad. I would recommend watering the greens.

Dry

The course was empty which was nice but it was dead in a lot of spots, pro shop was empty no goods to buy, the price is sky high considering how poorly its being maintained. It really seemed like it could be going out of business which would be a shame because it’s a nice layout.

Nice layout fun course

Tea boxes could use a little bit of love and the greens were a bit slow and hard to judge but the course layout is beautiful and it is well kept up on the fairways and greens

No difference between greens and fairways

I’ve played here a few times over the years. Never terrible
But Saturday’s tournament was a complete joke, hard to tell the difference between what they called fairways and greens
Greens were honestly the WORST I’ve ever seen. If you had a putt over 30’? You physically couldn’t hit it hard enough to reach the hole!
Probably should have chipped anything over 25’ I know they have to aerate but they’re horrible. I’d rather putt on my lawn!!
I’d say it was comical but $70 for my tournament was a complete RIPOFF!
Greens were at least 1/2” deep. Haven’t mowed in forever? Staff polite was really the only good thing. Call me in 5 years, maybe I’ll come back?

Nice and fun course to play

The couse is challenging and fun to play. The terrain has many The facilities are nice. Staff are friendly and welcoming. Greens were bumpy. What's going on with the ponds? Most, if not all, are covered with some type of algae. While the water features are an asset to the play, the murky algae condition detracts from the ambiance. Aside from these two concerns the course is fun to play.

Very good golf experience

I have played this course many times; for a couple of years it was my home course with the Nor Cal Golf Assn. It is challenging without being unfair with the possible exception of the 8th green; if you are above the hold even a few feet and the pin is anywhere but in the far back, good luck getting your ball to stop if it doesn't go in the hold short of 15 feet past the pin. And it's a narrow, very long green. Beautiful scenery and friendly staff. When I played in the NCGA events there, it was mostly members from when the course was a private club, but that's now over 15 years ago so I doubt the "attitudes" some of those folks had are still prevalent. Plus that wouldn't impact anyone playing a non tournament round. Generally well maintained. Some areas are tough to keep playable during winter but they do the best they can. Reasonably good value; my "hot deal" afternoon round recently was $33 with cart. (Don't try to walk more than nine holes unless you have a lot of stamina). Nice restaurant/bar, driving range and putting green. And they are one of the few courses which post covid will work with you on a hot deal to come out later than your scheduled time if it's not busy then. Many courses used to do that but inexplicably quit when covid came into play. You'd think they'd be more not less accommodating. It's a bit of a drive to get there, the last few miles of which are on a narrow road with some hairy curves but it's well worth it. .
