Good, challenging course !

Rancho San Joaquin is a good course, with challenging holes! Fairways are a bit dry, but it is summer.

incredibly slow

slowest round of golf i have played in my life, waiting on every single shot.. the group in front of us had a full hole gap between them and the next group. I called and asked the marshall to say something 3 times, never came out to move them along. would never ever play this course again. absolute crap. The greens were also covered in sand, no fees reduction...

Play this course

The staff was friendly, helpful and professional. The course was okay and could use some TLC. Layout was moderate. I rode the course in a golf cart but next time will walk, as it is fairly flat and easy to get around. Amenities are nice, bottom line, I enjoyed this course. I recommend you "Play this course".
