Holiday

For late season the course was still in good shape. The greens were bouncy due to them still curing. Overall, this is a great course and will make you play smart.

It was a holiday and people were in no rush. Had a good day.

only 9 holes open

Front nine closed for aerating the greens so we had to play the back 9 twice. Greens were heavily sanded and very slow because of all the sand. It appeared that the sand was not swept off the green after it was applied.

Turned out to be a nice course!

Played this course while I was in the town for a wedding and wasn’t disappointed! Good course, nice greens, enjoyed the round.

Overall, just not very well maintained. Greens rolled fine, but the tee boxes and fairways were just beat up. A little TLC and could be a decent public course.

Mediocrity at it's finest

Foxtail South has been an affordable staple with available tee times for myself as a new / high handicapper.

Over the last 18 months I've played, the quality of fairways has declined rapidly. There are large brown patches of solid dirt with cracks on various holes.

The greens have declined slightly but are the highlight of this course.

Bunkers may as well be clay or concrete.

The course is nice and wide, not too narrow on most holes.

The scenery lacks relative to other local course options.

If fairway upkeep got back in gear, and green quality stopped slipping fox south will continue to be a solid course.

As a solid value, I want to buy a membership, but, if it keeps declining I will pass come January.

Poor condition

I liked the layout and the course design. The fairways are very bad. Alternate plots of dried grass, and muddy squishy sections. The greens were pretty good and maintained well. The sand traps were mostly awful - some mud pits, packed dirt, and some have puddles in them.

Uneventful

If it wasnt for the greens being in good shape this course is better used to feed cattle. Layout is average at best. Fairways and tees were in average shape considering the drought. Bunkers were in the worst shape I've seen in a long time. You can tell they completely ignore them.
I will not play the south course again.

Great track!

This is by far one if the best courses in Sonoma on Golf Now. Tree lined redwoods on every hole, lush fairways, greens and tees. I was amazed at how green everything was with current mega drought conditions. Just an awesome day!
