A GOOD VALUE
My family belongs to a private golf club, but my friends do not, so I see both ends of the spectrum here in the Modesto area. Saint Stan's is a bit out of the way, and it's got that efficient but unimaginative back and forth layout you tend to see at public par 3 courses. The clubhouse is bare bones, and the driving range is more dirt than turf.
But the course itself is very well maintained, you rarely need to reserve a tee time, and it's one of the cheaper courses to play. This is a great course for walking with a Sunday bag, and if you have younger kids who are learning to play, this is a course where they can actually tee off from the same box as you without getting frustrated.
Does Saint Stan's compare well to OGCC or Del Rio? Of course not! But full membership at OGCC is $600/month, and full membership at Del Rio is considerably more. Saint Stan's isn't pretty, but the fairways and greens have been in great shape every time I've played there. I can't say that about any of the other public courses in Modesto. Saint Stan's fills a need, and that's a good thing.
Waste of land and water
Can't believe this place has stayed in business so long given it's a lousy layout, absolutely no character, poor maintenance, and inconvenient location. Although the driving range is decent. That's really why you go there... just to practice
