Greens were in good shape, fairways showing effects of drought already. Grass sparse in places on fairways.

Worst golf carts ever

Golf carts had defective batteries and couldn’t power carts up any type of incline. Switched at the turn and 4 holes later the same problem. They need to get better carts

Fantastic!!!!

This course is well worth the money. Lots of trees, elevation changes, blind spots where you need to keep your wits about you. Coming from Vegas where you will not find a course of this caliber for less than $125, it’s a must play. One problem though, the cart girl never came around once. Not good for a Saturday. Great condition. The back 9 the best on the course. Don’t forget to catch the goats.

Need your A game

This course lived up to everything I had heard about it… Beautiful views in the rolling hills of Rocklin lots of blind shots on the fairways it is helpful to play with someone that has knowledge of the course fortunately for me there was someone to help with that… The greens were small but rolled well a little bit firm but it is summertime and we haven’t had much rain

I Love This Course!

This was my second time on this course, pace of play was a little slow, but I can't blame the staff, weather was perfect, and with the COVID restrictions being lifted everyone was out! If you haven't had the Bloody Mary from the cart girl you are missing out, they were delicious!

This Johnny Miller course remains just as challenging as when it was originally designed.

The course always poses a challenge to the weekend golfer. Better bring your "A" game otherwise you'll be out a sleeve or two.

Always a good challenge for an experienced player.

Good practice facilities. Greens are in good shape and challenging. The black tees were missing which prevented me from competing with my 340yd driving son (I play white tees)...I'm guessing they took them out to improve pace of play for the memorial day weekend.

Greens have some burn spots and they should flag then as ground under repair so you can move your ball...lazy, I'm guessing.

Good experience overall.

My #1 golf course in the greater Sacramento area.

Second time playing is better than the first. Totally enjoyable yet giving me some workout. Just perfect course in this spring. I just about ran out of the golf courses within 159 miles or so due to COVID-19 pandemic. And I am so glad that I had the play slots available. There is so much I can appreciate about the course: layout, friendliness and courtesy of the staff, surrounding atmosphere, birds, trees (plenty of them) , ponds, clear blue sky. Thanks again for your conscious and diligent efforts to make our outing great.

Challenging and fun

Booked on golfnow.com for great price. I'm a 25+- handicap and played white t-boxes. Green's in good shape, fairways dry and thin. Very happy with course overall: clean bathrooms, friendly staff and play pace was fast - no waiting. Some narrow fairways and tricky Green's. Scenery is great, lots of wildlife. Course is hilly, can not walk this one.
