Good round

overall, a great day and course to play. Don't hit it even slightly into the long rough or you will lose your ball. The greens were super fast and pin placement was honestly a little to tight to ridges and heavy breaks. I played the mountain and canyon course.

Definitely worth the money.

Cinni - Awesome Course

I personally feel one of the best courses in Northern California for the money. When you first arrive at the course you know you are playing a top tier golf course. My favorite two nines are Mountain and Canyon.

The Best Course With The Fastest Greens I Have Played This Year

My first time here. I played as a single and was joined by another single plus a pair of buddies playing a money match. When I voiced concerns over the forced carry on Hole #1, they suggested I play from the Quicksilver tees for my first round here, and its easier 130 slope rating.

What a great course. Danger everywhere, and the fastest, hardest-to-read greens I have played in a year or two -- maybe ever. Yes, it was a little wet in a few areas, including some fairways which made crisp iron shots much more difficult. I usually prefer to walk when I play, but I am not sure that is an option here -- this is one hilly course. Elevated tees, ravines, and lots of beautiful sandy bunkers. All on a day when the temps reached the low 80s. It was a day and a course that makes you either love the game or hate it.

Warning: This is not a course for people who struggle to get the ball airborne. You will have to hit over danger areas quite a bit. And bad putters should put a limit on themselves for each green, and pickup after 3 strokes. Don't be the person who makes the foursome behind you tolerate a 5 hour round.

Greens like glass

By far the best, smoothest, fastest greens I’ve played in 2020. This was my first time here and I played the Lake/Mountain. Very nice routing. Other than the Greebs, the course was just a tad bit over watered for my liking but that’s really the only thing I have to gripe about. Pace of play was excellent.

Impressive

Didn’t know what to expect. Friends said I’d have “fun”. This course is everything you’d could want (except it’s impracticable to walk). Great conditions; every hole is a challenge. Check your ego, pick the right tees, and you should have a wonderful and memorable round.

Always awesome

It is always a great day when you are able to play at this course. Very challenging but fun. Just hard to find your ball if it finds the tall grass. My fault hitting slices.

Hot & Smoky

Perhaps not best day to golf, but with the favorable wind keeping the smoke away form the course, Cinnabar was a picturesque Oasis.
