I want to play here again!

Great Tuesday afternoon tee time on a beautiful sunny day. The restaurant/bar was open and had wi-fi so I was able to work for a while before my round of golf. I was out on the course solo with a cart and the round went pretty smoothly.

Overall the course was in really good condition and the greens were fair (not too slow, not too fast) but there were quite a few I repaired divots that could have been better. The fairways were in really nice condition as well and the rough areas weren’t difficult to get out of.

My chief complaint was the group of 4 guys behind me that were extremely loud and had a speaker playing music at a volume that was disturbing and nothing was done about it and I could hear it from a couple of hundred yards away.

I’d love to play this course again but perhaps a bit earlier in the day to make sure I catch the restaurant before they close at 6pm because all the carts have to be back by 7pm.

No Food

I had family in town and I thought this course would be fun and it looked nice. We got to hole #9 and called in for food and they said the cook was not ready it was 10:30 am. Disappointed. They need to fix that.

Lovely Course with Minor Drawbacks

The Course at Wente is my favorite golf course in our area although the price limits how often I play there. The course was in excellent condition on our date of play (16 Aug 22). There were a couple of aspects that detracted from the experience this time. First, the surrounding vineyards have been set up with loud and irritating bird noises to discourage birds from eating the grapes. I understand why the vineyard management has to do this, but it is irritating for birds and golfers alike. I expect the noise makers are in use only during the time when the birds want to eat the grapes. The second drawback is that the grill and bar closed quite early (3:00 and 5:00 respectively) on the day we played. Finally, the driving range closed at 2:30 which meant we were not able to use it.

Fantastic Track!

This course has a tee box for every level. Definitely an interesting layout and will not disappoint! This is definitely a challenging track coming from a plus index person. Love this course and it was a venue for lower level/development tour events!

Very nice but…

Very nice but not worth the regular price tag of $150+ if you can get a deal on a tee time take it otherwise their are other courses in the area just as nice or slightly less nice for half the price. For the price they are charging this course should be immaculate and it’s not. The course layout is nice with some interesting holes and some extreme elevation change which makes for great views with vineyards all over, IMO you’re paying for the views on this course rather than the conditions. I would recommend this course if you can find a deal on a tee time otherwise check out other courses in the area.

Can’t wait to return to Wente

Beautiful course in excellent condition! Nice amenities.

We played on a Thursday afternoon. The pace was very good.

Good challenges with lots of sand traps. We were very impressed with the driving range , with a practice sand trap, which I’m not sure I’ve seen at any other course.

Can’t wait to play at Wente again!

One of the best in the Bay Area

I’m and avid golfer and play 3 rounds a week. Wente is one of the top 3 courses to play in the Bay Area. Love the challenging course and how it winds in and out of the hills.

The course was in excellent condition, good pace of play, and had great service from the staff at check-in.
