Old School Design

Great old school design. A walker's course with tricky greens. Friendly staff. Clubhouse needs updating but the breakfast was delicious. Pro Shop was well stocked. Looking forward to playing again soon.

Great greens

I’ve played Rancho in the past, they seem to be improving the course. Fun layout . The greens were in the best condition I’ve ever seen, smooth and fast. Fairways need a little work but for the money, quite a bargain.

Rancho

Fairways pretty good shape, rough riddled with gopher holes. Keep in the fairway.. Very good value if you wait until the day you will play and use Golf Now. You do risk time slot will be taken

Enjoyable day of golf

Nice course layout with no parallel fairways so the chance of getting struck by a ball from a player on a different fairway is remote.
Greens were just sanded, so putting was awful. Normally the greens are average and putt fine. The tee boxes could use some work to upgrade them and the same for the bunkers. The potential for making this an excellent course is high. The carts do not have tops nor windshields which is a negative because of increased sun exposure and a lack of protection from the wind and an errant golf shot.
