Due to recent rains and a lack of sufficient drainage, the course was very wet. Plus, many areas were bare patches and so were extremely muddy. Also, many of the bunkers had standing water. They really need to do a better job of drainage on the South Course. The North Course is much better. Plus, they really need to do a better job of maintaining the bunkers.
North Course is worthy and South is fine. In fact the South may have tougher greens and More overall awkward approaching shots as opposed to the North’s more demanding length or ball shape Requirements .
The North has more turns and hazards right in front of you while the South is straighter and a tadpole narrower than its championship counterpart. I’d play either any day.
In these busy and not so busy times the course is deserving of the rates it charges based on the tests it presents— And On either side Of geographic play going out or coming in.
And I remember when the south was $10 bucks a year ago while the North was a hot deal at 25.
No carts were available at 12:15 due to early morning frost delay. Wait about one hour, resulting in not finishing before dark.
If you want to just get out and play!
The South course at Foxtail isn't in the best of shape. The best part are the greens, moderately fast, but bumpy. It's great because it's inexpensive to play but you will tend to run into or observe golfers with little or no knowledge of course etiquette. The pace was a bit slow.
We played in 4 hours and 40 minutes. Overall, for the money, if you are just looking to get out, this is a good place to settle your "golf jones" and it won't wear down your wallet.
Foxtail North, a great weathered experience.
In the intermittent rain today was a revelation of learning about and loving the game. Despite raining off an an on and cold though not intolerable the day was fantastic at Foxtail North. We were behind a slow twosome that somehow because a threesome by the 13 or 14th hole, but we finished and got to enjoy double rainbow by the end. A beautiful day for sure and one of my first rounds in the 80s albeit 89! Learning but always loving the game with my lovely Lady Luck!
Foxtail South Funky But Accessible
Of the two courses at Foxtail, the South Course is definitely the more humble. Although their course ratings are about the same, the South course is not as well maintained and offers the opportunity to loose balls in big cracks in the ground and mud holes liberally sprinkled about. That said, it is also the least expensive and easiest to book course in the County. If you have a golf Jones and other places are booked, you can usually get a round and a cart at Foxtail South. Today's round was fast (a little more than 3 hours) and with some of the first winter weather of the year a good test. I got the chance to work on a few things with my swing. The greens are quite decent, BTW. It can be an adventure to get there, but once on, the rolls are true. Overall this is an average to slightly below average course that I do return to a few times of year. Worth a shot.
Very nice course, better than the Southside.
Course is in good shape. I don’t recall any brown dried up areas that seem to be popping up on a lot of courses. Pace of play could have been alittle better.
one new thing
I don't see this covered in a lot of reviews because its not a problem for most golfers, however, I played with my son who tends to hit approach shots long. A lot of these greens have steep drop offs. He would hit balls that hit the green but kept on going and would frequently be 50 yards away with the addition of the hard steep terrain behind and beside the greens add in a few tree branches and he got killed. I had it happen on one shot that I thought landed pin high but kept on going down a hill on the back. Cost me two - maybe three extra shot!
