Short 18 must play

If you need a taste of longer play from a 9 hole then this is the place to play. Course is awesome for improving your iron play. Be patient with customer service in the shop. It is definitely not a welcoming feeling walking into the shop. Perhaps if the shop moved most of the clutter at the registers we as paying golf enthusiasts would feel what hospitable is like.

Would not recommend

The pace of play was dreadfully slow. This 18 hole course is a par 60 and roughly 3000 yds. I played Saturday at 1:09 PM, it took 4.5 hours too finish.

Not worth it.

Wonderful golf course

Deep Cliff is a Bay Area gem! The staff is friendly and helpful. The course is walkable and so beautiful - from it’s granite cliffs to the babbling brooks and wildlife. It’s a wonderful break from the noise and stresses of life. Worth every penny!!

Beautiful, peaceful course

Deep Cliff is by far one of our Bay Area favorites. The staff is super helpful and friendly. The course is in good condition and while it is an executive course, it still has its challenges. Our favorite part is the wildlife and natural beauty of the course. We love the babbling brooks, falcons, deer, turtles,,ground squirrels, and cotton tail bunnies etc.. You really cannot beat it! Playing there is super grounding and good for the soul! And the second hole is their signature with the stunning granite backdrop.

Everything was in great condition except the tee boxes. They could use some leveling and TLC. It was hard to find a flat spot to tee off on almost every hole.

Good course to practice your short game. Many holes 100 yards or so in length.

Great Short 18

Deep Cliff is a super golfer friendly course cut in the canyon. Short par 4s allow you to sharpen your woods game. Challenging iron useage.
Currently no food just beer on tap.

narrow

The course was not in great shape. All the tee boxes were out of place and shot. The front nine was kind of a mess: tee box and putting surfaces. The back was much better in terms of the grees being in good shape.
Not sure if I would play it again. This course is NOT set to use a driver.

Deep Cliff is afun course

Deep Cliff is a fun course.
Being a golfer who normally plays 18 hole course with 3-4 par 3;s made Deep Cliff an unusual course.
There were 6 holes over 200 yards, The rest were par 3's.
I really enjoyed the layout.

Terrible Pace of play

Terrible pace of play. No Marshall to be seen and I had to sit on each tee box for 10-15 min at a time.

Great day

A great day with the mens club. This is a tough course for me but I enjoy getting out and giving it a go. Holes 6 and 7 always get in my head, and goes bad.
But another great day. The clubhouse staff were polite and professional.
I’ll be back next weekend to do it again!
