Mtn. Vista Santa Rosa

This course, as always, was in excellent condition. A shorter course, well laid out. All was great until around the 6th hole when we hit a roadblock with a foursome that was two groups ahead holding up the rest of the course. This continued for the rest of the round and unfortunately the Course Marshall didn’t see it as an issue. Made for a LONG day in the heat for several groups and we saw many give up and leave.
We still recommend this course to family and friends. Price is also very good in off season:)

Santa Rosa

This is a nice course and is kept in great condition. Not overly difficult, but enough of a challenge to really enjoy it. Pace of play was excellent this time around so it probably had something to do with the heat of the day:)

Well maintained golf course. Due to the warming trend, the course was not busy. I recommend this golf course. I will be back.

Nice course, turf a bit rough

The course was mowed down pretty short - possibly for change of grass with summer coming? WAY too many mowers/blowers on the course while we were playing. Literally surrounded by 7 machines running while we were putting on one green (the exhaust fumes were bad). I would definitely go back to this course again, maybe more mid-winter.

Value golf

Nice staff. Beer cart lady was sent home at noon. Plenty of holes where your tee shot is over water. Overall good value for price paid. Nothing noteworthy. We were told the Mountain course is much more scenic
