Get it together!!!

How do you have a 20-30 minute back up on tee times when they are in 10 minute intervals? Greens suck and are dried out to the point it’s falling apart. There is zero etiquette at this course.

Starter in the morning just left everyone head out when they showed causing a traffic jam. Normally we finish 18 in 2.5 hrs, today it took 4.

Great Course for Beginners

I really like being able to take beginner golfers out for 18 holes here.

You hit off mats and most people don’t repair their ball marks on the greens. And the greens are a bit slow and inconsistent for reads.

But a great low key hangout spot with a driving range. Come here with low expectations and you will leave happy. I’m a good way.

Poorly Managed

Many foursomes were five and sixsomes despite signs posted everywhere about ‘maximum four players per round”. We quit after six holes.

Arroyo Sucko

Can you spread out the tee times. Waiting 20 min in between holes make this place terrible

8/8/21 Arroyo Seco

Great course for beginners to hone their skills. Casual feel and in great shape for a 3 par. Pace was slow but it was a Sunday at 11am, so that’s expected. Back 9 picked up, though. Very strong course for what it is.

A Great Place for Firsts

Arroyo Seco was the first course that my husband and his family of locally-known golfers played, and the first course that my husband took me to. After years of not playing any golf, we went there for his birthday and couldn't have had a better time. Friendly staff, short holes. Our tee time at 7:00AM on what would be a very hot day, had us starting and playing by ourselves without anyone pushing behind us. I highly recommend this friendly, unintimidating course. We were finishing the 18th at 8:45AM.
