First Time Playing

First maybe the last

We had limited time and San Joaquin was closest one that we could get.
I knew this is Town course but never expect to have such slow paces, we have seen couple of Ambassadors but don’t know what they do.
Because of first time, our score was ok. We should be able to shoot single and teens for us.
Course layout was ok but cart path was terrible. Cart path was far away from the Green and in line with approach shots

First Time Playing

You get what you pay for.

I enjoyed the course layout. Some fun/interesting holes, with very few being just straightforward boring holes.

The greens were in surprisingly good condition. The fairways are not good in many areas, but I’ll take the greens being in good shape over the fairways/tee boxes. One of the par 3’s on the back nine was a temporary green, so we just skipped that one.

Pace of play was shockingly good. Moved right along after a little back up on the first holes.
