5 hour round,too long
Great layout course,course was really wet n spongey,and my round was 5 hours that is way to long for week day!!!! Would only recommend this to friend if pace was faster!
Greens were recently punched (as usual, are difficult to putt) but needed to be done to maintain excellent greens. Course seems to be getting lots of water, so expect playing a mud ball and losing distance in the fairways and around the green. Rough is thick and tall which makes it extremely hard to locate your ball as well as play out of it. The aeration plugs have been raked around the green in the rough. Course will be in great shape within a week or two.
The course is in great shape. The traps actually have sand. Unlike some courses that charge around the same price. Greens are pretty quick. Even in the early morning, when they’re still wet. It’s a fun layout
Staff was great. Front nine was great. The dogs were great. The back nice was great. The greens were fast. My golf game was horrible. Thank you empire for a great time.
WAY TOO WET. PLEASE STOP OVER WATERING!
We play here twice a week and for the last 3-4 weeks the course is soaking wet no matter what time you play. You hit a good drive only to land in mud or get plugged. The bunkers are wet too. Yes , the grass is nice and green but please, please stop overwatering. We are considering playing elsewhere until the conditions improve.
Nice but not perfect,
Many of the fairways areas have fungus problems. Bunkers need new sand., Greens are in good shape and the new card path was long overdue.
Overall a good course to play. Greens were in excellent shape , held shots well, and putts rolled true- fast compared to other courses I’ve played. A bit too much water on the tee boxes and fairways which almost seemed like Winter conditions in August. Staff in the restaurant needs vast improvement in being friendly and better attitudes. No beverage cart on the course which was a bummer because it was a hot /humid day. Lots of blind shots from the tee boxes ( unable to see pin /greens) but that didn’t hamper shot selection much. Would play this course again
Pace of play was great, marshals are always available to make sure course is running smoothly.
Empire Ranch, Folsom CA
The track is set-up to be a tale of two nines. With the front nine being quite walkable wending its way along side wet lands, but the back can only be walked by a paratrooper of a through-hiker: think Black Diamond steep if you also snow ski. Pace of play was the best feature of this course, but teeing off at 7:00 AM should get you back to the club house around four hours any where you go. This is another of Sacramento Area's neighborhood niche golf courses with some homes just too close to the playing grounds. That is a turn-off for me personally. They ought to use some of the green fees for rehabilitation of tee boxes. Grounds keeper did something I think is a Faux Pas in course set-up that day by moving tee markers so far back you you had to stand in the rough on sloping ground. Double Faux Pas by doing that to weekend golfers paying the top green fees for the week. Club house is uninspiring but food is well above average for a golf course and the servers are delightful. Huge big screen for watching the games.
First time playing here. Good value for price. Nice layout, staff & condition. Would recommend.
Great layout great shape always in good
Condition but bunkers need More TLC
