We’ll taken care of..

Overall the course is in great shape. A little wet in a few spots, but overall great shape. Thank you also for having Sand in the bunkers - it’s the small things that make a difference and having actual sand and rakes vastly improve game play and the playing experience.

Best Value in Bay Area

TT was noon on Monday, and finished in 3:45 - place was empty.
Have played the course many times, and it has never been in better shape.

Grass range with excellent balls and multiple target flags.
DealTime was $34, then 20% off of that.

Tee boxes not perfect, but perfectly fine - plenty of grassy, level spots to play from.

Just a fast round on a great course at a crazy low price.

Getting better

I had read other reviews that the course had not been in great shape until more recently where some efforts have been made and it's definitely better but there are still some greens that have scarring or brown spots as well as in the fairways. Some of the tee boxes were a little worse for the wear. Looks like they make have some pests they are dealing with. Interesting layout, people are friendly and not much playing pressure on the Wed I played.

good but not great

Course layout in peaceful community is always fun and interesting. Landscape and houses along around the course looks amazing. Great work done for bunkers but tee box areas are total nasty. I felt like teeing off on the bunker, literally no grass but sands. They need to take care tee box and some of fairways grasses.

Getting better for sure

They have been remodeling the course to improve bunkers and playability, especially around the greens.

The new bunkers are much better. The greens were in pretty good shape. This course still needs to fix some irrigation issues that leaves wet patches next to dry patches.

I enjoy this course, but it's a little shy of 5 stars

Always a challenge at this great track. Some fairways were burned out, but greens were really good. Only issue was old unfixed ball marks. Traps have a lot of new sand but they need work.
