Great value, just be patient with the holes

We’re like the layout of the course, traps, holes. Tees were good, greens good. But those fairways! Lost 3 balls into gopher holes.
So, the price was right for the winter golf.

Just for fun or practice

The fairways are in pretty bad shape but the greens are good and the layout is fine. It's a great course if you're just wanting to get out and have some fun or just practice a little. Some fairways are difficult to find grass but good practice to hit from hardpan. Due to the condition, the play moves very fast so I finished 18 in under 3 hours.

As long as you know in advance that the course is in a rough condition, just enjoy a quick round and take it for what it is.....

Why play this course?

Last time I played was about 15 years ago and back then it wasn't great but now there is only grass on the greens. Not sure why anyone would play this course and the city should do something else with the real estate. Staff though was great and friendly.

Worst Course in California

Literally the worst course you will ever play. Completely dirt fairways with basically cement bunkers accompanied by a million gopher holes on every hole. $37 on a weekday. Absolute robbery by this course. Wouldn’t play here again if it they paid me. Avoid at all costs.

Buyer Beware

The rules are move your ball to a patch of grass since there is very little fairway. The course has given up on any maintenance so it’s only for drivers and putting practice.

This course played better 25 years ago

I used to work in this area in the late 90s and we regularly played this course and the fairways were always a challenge but the greens and the tee boxes were always pristine. It appears new ownership has poured all their money into the practice facility and has let the course just go. It is a shame that this course is in far worse shape than it was 25 years ago. The bunkers are no existent. The fairways are parking lots with random standing water everywhere. The greens are just OK. There's more grass on the driving range then there is on the fairway, so clearly grass can grow here, so why don't you throw some seed down and see what happens. It is a crying shame what you have done to this course. Calling it a "Links" course is an insult to Links courses around the globe. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

Where is the grass?

The pictures on Golf Now and Google are very deceiving! Majority of the course is dirt/black sand and it doesn’t allow for a smooth game. To add on, the pro shop did a horrible job of controlling Tee times. People were going off in singles, doubles, triples and etc and it really caused many groups to wait on various holes.

The only thing this course has that I really enjoyed were the greens. Putting was super easy and fun.

Fairway is 80%-90% dirt

I booked this course (including cart) without reading their reviews and was unable to get a refund unless the course was closed due to weather conditions. Unfortunately, it rained the day of my booking and course management claimed the course was playable. Upon my arrival, I learned carts weren’t allowed due to the rain so I had to walk. It was difficult to walk a course in mud. 80%-90% of the fairways was dirt with gopher holes everywhere. Thanks to GolfNow support I was refunded. Play only if don’t mind ruining your irons.

Do not play!

I wanted to give the course the benefit of the doubt based on its negative reviews. Sad to say they were right. I booked a tee time which included a cart. Due to rain, I called the course to confirm it was open. Well the course was open but without carts, walking only. Since I couldn’t get a refund, I decided to walk it. Little did I know, the course was 90% dirt. I was walking in mud. Don’t play this course. Take my word. I’m not the type to complain but it’s upsetting this course claims the course is playable. Play if you don’t mind ruining your irons.

Calling this a cow pasture is an insult to cows

The fact that they take money is a crime. The fairways were nothing but dirt and mud. Finding grass was a challenge in the ground squirrel village that lives on every hole.
