Best golf course

It was the best weather to play at the vineyards. The courses had many bunkers, but fewer in the back nine which was great. It had the best fairways to play your woods. Definitely coming to play more pars!

Absolutely amazing course

This is the most beautiful and interesting course I have ever played. The layout is so varied, and teeing off among the vines is magical. The pretty extreme elevation changes keep things really challenging and novel for every single hole.

The staff is alright...some were not the friendliest, including the Course Marshall who was unfriendly right from the get-go. It's an expensive course, and by and large it felt like a luxurious golf experience. The Grill had great food and views, and their own Wines are inexpensive but really good.

Great day except

Wonderful course except the carts are set that you can’t leave the assigned hole to use the rest room without having to back track completely on the cart path, have you seen the back 9? Tried to cut across 16 to use restroom- nightmare

Challenging upscale golf

Like most courses, enjoyment related to pace of play. On this day I was with another golfer and we were behind a foursome and we still finished in four hours. We waited maybe twice for like 2-3 minutes. Pace was fantastic. Greens rolling well and everything in really good condition. Wente usually wants $100. If you get it for under $80 it's good value. You have to be on your game here--it was crush the novice golfer.

5-some on the course??

Very slow play as they allowed a 5-some / 3 cart on. No Marshall to regulate. I really want to give them a 5-star. But due to the slow play...and allowing that group to play was a F up

One of my favorite courses

The course has nice layout that and scenic. One of my favorite coursers. However I don’t think I like to play here during greens irrigation period. A few of the greens are like beaches.
I still love this course for the test of the year!

The bird speakers to protect the wine grapes was extremely annoying. Watch for harvest time. I played before and never heard the speakers.

Poor amenities

The snack shack at the turn was closed and the food and drinks at the clubhouse closed at 5pm. That is insanely early as golfers would come into the 18th for the next 3 hours. I couldn’t even get a beer with my friends in the sweltering Livermore heat. Not to mention the range was closed all day.
