Good course, but not memorable

Conditions were good, clearly they maintain this course well. I can't complain about anything other than the cost and the layout. Upon arriving home and reviewing my round with my GPS device, I found myself already having forgotten much of the course. Most holes are forgettable, and the cost is way too high to be forgetting it almost instantly. Still was a fun day and conditions were great!

Windy weather
Walked

Poppy Ridge-Merlot

Booked last minute and drove 30 miles from the South Bay and Poppy Ridge did not disappoint. I played Merlot, the 9 hole rolling hills walking course. Weather was perfect, greens were very well kept and put in 11k steps. I’ll definitely play here again

Wrong date

Hi, I got email from GolfNow that my credit card was charge on Friday $195. I’m running in to a problem and I’m sure I booked my time to play on Sunday February 21 not February 19. Not sure how it became February 19. I’m actually was planning play golf tomorrow with my friends. And I’m sure I didn’t do mistake of choosing date , because I was looking to book time for Sunday 21 with my friends at the same time. Somehow when I was confirming my order it became February 19 and I didn’t know about it until I saw your email.

Not the best.

The clubhouse staff was friendly, driving range & putting area was nice. But, the greens were in bad shape. They looked like they hadn’t been rolled in weeks. The pace of play was brutal. Our round took 5.5 hours due to the pace of play in front of us. I was excited to play this course after hearing how nice it is... but there are a lot nicer courses in San Jose.

Spectacular!!

Amazing course...played 18...Merlot and then Chardonnay. I walked it, as I prefer to walk for the exercise and it was awesome. For anyone that only likes to walk flat courses, take a cart. Conditions were amazing got the winter. No soggy spots at all. Fairways were superb and greens were great as well with perfect speed. BBIBA.....Best Bunkers In Bay Area....the sand quality was awesome and every bunker was perfectly raked in the morning. No lazy groundskeepers here. These folks are the absolute best. Also, for a hilly course, the rough was manageable and I only lost one ball all day, and that’s because I didn’t want to spend time looking for it. Was lucky enough to be out early and finished in 3:15. I play twice a week at least and this course had the beat conditions of any course I’ve played in the last 9 months. Even better than summer conditions. Even though it’s a little more than double Las Positas, it plays like a $150 course for less than $100 on weekday mornings. Again, best conditions of any course around. Will definitely be back.

Terrible staff and BS rules

We played a 9 hole and they would not give us carts because you have to “be playing 18 holes to get a cart”. We got back from playing and there were AT LEAST 20 carts waiting to go out. Complete garbage of a rule and the staff were incredibly rude about it. This place is a dump.
