Made my day

It was a perfect weather golf day on a perfect course. Played Ranch and Vineyard and both courses were in great shape from fairways to Greens. It is also a very challenging course that gives you good opportunity if you got game. I don't have game but I had a great time. Staff and all amenities were excellent.

Nice ... needs to dial up a few things.

Very nice layout. Good staff. Course in pretty good condition. This could be a top, top quality course, but lacks in a few areas. The carts are old and no good, for instance. They charge enough that they can step up the stuff around the golf and it would be top notch.

Good course, would play again

Really enjoyed the course, greens were in rough shape, apparently fix your ball-mark is not a thing here. But overall the course played well and quick.

The golf beverage cart was only seem twice on front 9 and they only had 1 bottle of water, never saw them on the back 9.

If your a first timer, be prepared for chilly reception by the staff for invading their space. .

We apologize that the greens were not up to their usual very good standards as Steele Canyon values its greens as being the most consistent in the County year around. There was a large charity tournament the day before, clearly got some wear and tear. In addition, it was a busy day with lots of drinks going around, short staffed as is the case with many during Covid. We apologize for the poor reception, it is definitely not the norm and hope you will visit us again soon.

Exceptional character

This golf course has 3 different nine hole counterparts. I played upon the canyon and vineyard 9's. I LOVE the vineyard nine. There's a need to successfully hit all 14 clubs you have in your bag really well!
The greens were quick, but manageable. I made a lot of putts out there today.
Enjoy wonderful and difficult shots!

Solid round

Quick round of 3 hours. A few brown spots but Greens were lush and true. A great course in East County.

Great course, but felt pressured by tournament players

We loved the course but had a members of the Friday tournament crowd come down while we were playing the first green and intimidatingly tell us to hurry up on the first hole and throughout our 18 holes. We kept the pace of play and were respectful. Was disappointed to know that public members who paid green fees were looked down upon at such a renowned course.
