Long, challenging course. Pace of play sucks

This really is a challenging course with lots of strategically placed sand traps and well groomed greens. If you’re a long ball hitter, this is a place for you to shine. However, after golfing here six times, I won’t be back. The pace of play is so slow that it took me six hours to finish 18 holes. The Marshal is not on top of it and the scheduler needs a basic lesson in pace of play. I’ve golfed all over the world for 20 years and it’s a shame that this course can’t seem to solve this problem. The people who work here are all very nice.

Great links track

This course has always been one of my favorites in the Bay area. It's always a joy to play and remarkably stands up to the constant play it receives. I only hope the city and other government agencies involved fix the second bridge at some point that crosses over the tidal causeway. Seems like it been out of commission for at least two years now.

Pretty good course overall

Friendly staff and good range. Construction going on around the clubhouse at the moment is a little annoying. A decent course of decent length. POP was a little slow but called the marshal and play sped up from that point. Fairways/greens in good shape!

Good course good price

Good course good price! It was a beautiful day with a temperature in mid 70s and course was in fairly good shape. Pace of play was kind of slow because of the foursomes in front of us that was two holes behind the group ahead otherwise very nice day at the golf course.

Slow play, poor conditions

First thing - absolutely BEAUTIFUL links-sryle course on the East Bay shoreline. I'll be back, but not nearly as often as if it weren't so overcrowded & the condition of the course so poor.
They send groups out every 9 minutes, which is packing them in already. But when the wind gets to blowing in off the Bay, and it can easily gust 30+mph, you got people all over the place searching the rough and driving into the next fairway!
5 to 6 hour rounds, and multiple areas of GUR in the middle of fairways really lessen the enjoyment. But like I said, the challenge & the scenery will bring me back!

Course has seen better days...

I had played this course in the past and loved it, but unfortunately it has gone downhill. The course has an excellent layout, great greens, and a friendly staff, but that's where the positives end. The pace of play was terrible--at one point there were 3 groups waiting on a par 3--and the tees and fairways are mediocre at best. There are tons of dry/dead spots all over and the bunkers are atrocious (all hardpan and no sand).

It's really a shame, since the course really has so much potential with its layout, staff, views, and wildlife. But for around $90 (with cart) I won't be playing here again anytime soon.

Goose Droppings Everywhere!

I was really disappointed how this golf course was over price considering that the layout the greens and fairways are not that good the greens did not have a true roll, After playing Corica South course Nearby that cost less I just wanted to end my round after the front nine. There’s so many other nice golf courses in the bay area and I will be avoiding this next time I come to town.

Excellent Course

Great course with incredible views along the bay. Course is very well kept and is very fun. Round took a little over 5 hours but only because of one awful group in front of us. Beautiful views , great course, and not crazy expensive. Will come here often

Played my best at this course

Played super early here after dropping some family members at the Oakland airport. Never played this course but I have heard a lot of good things about it. Started playing by myself and eventually joined by another golfer after the first hole. The course is super wide, it is going to be hard to lose your ball unless your playing holes near the water. But besides that, you should be able to play most holes even if your ball goes far right or left. Green is in perfect condition! Staff are putting a lot of work to make this course even better. Was asked about the membership, if you live near the course you should get it! It is super worth it. Unfortunately, I live in Hollister :( I finally scored under 80 so I might sound bias about this course haha. But will definitely recommend this course to anyone since it can be forgiving, just try to avoid as much bunkers as you can if possible.
