Slow Round, Good Value

5hr+ round as there was a tournament being played that morning. Slow play is typical for this course though. Some greens were under repair but overall, were fine. Views were spectacular though playing from the blues was extremely hard. I recommend the white tees for anyone that isn’t better than a 6 handicap. Staff was excellent and overall a good round -

Course is in great shape. Fairways, traps and greens well maintained. Very windy the day we played, but that is expected there this time of year. It would not be an easy or fun course for a beginner golfer. Youshould give it a try.

Challenging but well maintain course

Hilly course, narrow too with thick rough that "eats" up your wayward shots!
However, the pace is real slow, I started at 230pm and could not finish 18 by sunset.

Fun day in the Sun

I played on a Friday afternoon. Course condition improved quite a bit from a year ago. The greenskeepers are doing a fine job. Pro shop staff is quite friendly and efficient. Marshall and starters are friendly. There is a beverage cart going around a few times and that's a good sign of a nice course. Greens in much better shape from when I played over a year ago as I see a a lot less ball marks. Keep up the good practices y'all players. I'll be back to play the course again soon.

Terrible Conditions

Slow play, Bunkers and more than 2 tee boxes under repair. Staff was doing shots at the turn and being loud, No discount due to renovation and that they wont tell you when you make a reservation. Some of the Temporary tee boxes where on the fairway on downhill sidehill lies. It's like they didn't care! I walked off after 14 holes.

Under repair - no notice from Course

Normally the course is in decent shape - however half of the course is closed to re-do tee boxes, half the tees are on temporary tee boxes, certain greens were sanded, traps closed and maintenance everywhere so you can only play half the course…which would be fine if they didn’t make you pay FULL PRICE with no notice that they’re doing all of this and the pro shop told me they couldn’t do anything after the round.

Should have warned us…

5 tee boxes were under repair so they stuck the tees in the middle of the fairway. A few times, this meant you were teeing off on a severe slope. This included the signature 6th hole and the driveable 15th.

The greens were also in poor shape. We were the 11:26 tee time but the number of divots that players had not fixed tells me they must not have cleaned the greens before the day.

Finally, several bunkers were under repair and the ones that weren’t either had too much sand or sand like concrete.

For the cost, I was surprised we were not told ahead of time when booking or checking in, and was surprised there was no discounted rate.

Nice Course

First time playing Crystal Springs Golf Course while visiting from New Jersey. Challenging course with great mountain range views. Only issue was a few of the bunkers were being repaired. Overall great value. Will definitely play again on my next visit to the Bay Area.
