Course condition

Green OK and no complaint. Fairway absolutely terrible and needs a lot of work. Too many bare spots, ground squirrel holes and lots of geese droppings!!

Forget the negative reviews Shoreline is as nice as ever and improving!

This course is I the nicest shape it's been in for three years and the fairways are becoming defined and the bunkers are a pleasure to play out of . Shoreline offers the elite players the length few courses in the area can as well as Some nice muni greens that are undulating and bunkered on sides and in the front and backs of greens ...

Dog Track

Shoreline is well past its prime, The course is very tired, Fairways are rock hard and almost no definition between the rough and the fairway so getting any sense of where to play the ball is lost. The squirrels define the rough more than anything. Greens have lots of undulatons and are in ok shape compared to the fairways. Pace was slow, our group waited on every hole and finished in 5 hours. For a course that is not particularly long or difficult was a slog. Played her several times but this is the last.

Shoreline GL

Fairways dry and a bit thin with bare spots perhaps due to drought but they use recycled water so not sure why so dry.

Windy and Bumpy Fairway

Played for the first time. It was a summer that had a lot of kid campers played. Fairways are in bad condition (dead grass, dry dirt, etc.). Course layout is the only good think for this course.

Nice Course that could use some maintenance

Shoreline is a nice course with a reasonable weekend walking rate ($60). The pace is good but some of greens look beat up and a few of the fairways have bare spots. I will play again if I want a fairly inexpensive round.

Everything but the course

-Ate lunch in the restaurant before our round, excellent food and service
-staff in the pro shop was terrific, very friendly
-great amenities, chipping/pitching area, great practice green, full range
-the course itself was a disappointment
-the greens were solid, but the rest of the course conditions were very poor
-particularly around the greens, a lot of bare dirt, holes everywhere, seems they struggle to grow grass consistently
-for $23 on a Friday it is a solid deal, however most would prefer to pay double or triple the price with better course upkeep

More holes than swiss cheese

Decent track if it weren’t over ran by ground squirrels and gophers. Soo many holes in the fairways and surrounding areas don’t be surprised if your ball rolls into one a time or two. The vegetation is super over grown in a lot of places. Absolutely not worth the money even if it’s a hot deal. Moffett is far better and just down the road.

Cheap. Great for Learners

Will preface this by saying it was super windy and it is probably usually windy by the lake. The course was great for a beginner and it’s super cheap after 3:04 PM usually it’s only 20 bucks. Not too busy I played at 5 PM and I could easily get two or three tea shots and without messing any sort of pace of play up. As a beginner I had fun on one of my first 18 holes
