WILL PLAY AGAIN
Fun course. Maybe will try to walk it one day. Pace of play was slow, usually normal for weekends. Slowest greens I have ever played.
Cafe closes too early
Bar and cafe understaffed and closed too early. Before 5 pm.
Speed of greens not consistent from hole to hole.
Many unfixed ball marks on greens.
Payments for green fees, carts between Golf Now and the Pro Shop were confusing.
Driving Range payments for buckets very confusing. It totally befuddles non-regulars who end up taking a long time and holding up long lines of golfers.
Conditions were a disappointment.
Greens are not in the best shape. Inconsiderate 3some in front of us. 1 person in the group would hold up play by talking on their phone. Reported this to the course marshal, but his response was cursory at best. 5 hour plus round on a Tuesday. Shouldn’t be happening. I hope they can make improvements soon, because I’ve always considered the layout here to be fun and challenging.
Overall, the course was one of the better ones I’ve played, since moving from Hawaii. However, it could be top tier if it weren’t for the lack of course etiquette exercised by the players. Namely the immense amount of broken tees or tees left in the ground, at all tee boxes. And the greens, were absolutely trashed. Divots everywhere, climbs of cut grass, leaves(which is expected) but the rest is preventable. Additionally, the pace of play was a bit slow. Normally if there’s a group of 4 and they have a single player behind them, constantly having to wait on them, etiquette says you let the single play through. Not here. I had to continuously wait 5, 10, even 20 minutes just to tee off. Not to mention my follow on shots. Aside from those things listed above. The course was great, challenging and the surrounding views/environment was beautiful.
Will be back
I'd play here every day it it was closer. Very good greens, probably 8.5, nice fairways and fun layout
Greens need work
We were able to play the front nine in exactly 2 hours but for some reason, everyone got backed up at the 10th tee which led to a longer duration on the back nine. On the positive side, the course was greener than other courses I play, e.g. Lake Chabot, but the greens were very bumpy and in some cases had areas best described as ground under repair where you would have to move your ball to have a fair putt, e.g. browned out or scarred sections. I would still recommend the course just because of the challenging holes and overall flora and fauna,, e.g. beautiful trees, a number of scenic tee boxes, etc. Also saw a deer and a coyote during the round.
Great course, could use a marshal
Course was outstanding. Pace is slow. Lots of crossing over into parallel fairways. Foursome ahead of us playing multiple balls every hole. Could use someone to enforce pace of play.
Too tough to carry....
Course in nice shape, especially greens which are in prime condition. Last time I played here it was 98 degrees. I carried my bag and had to quit after 9. Due to exhaustion. This time w/ forecast of 68 degrees high, figured I'd give it another try. Despite the temp actually hitting 80+, I finished, but suffered the last nine and faded horribly. What walkers need to know: Despite it being beautiful scenically, it's an insanely hilly (every hole) course. No matter that I'm in great shape for my age (66), I recommend riding no matter your age. You will enjoy yourself more, and almost certainly play better. I will play Tilden (but NEVER WALK it) again.
Great Course in Berkeley hills
Tilden Park was a pleasant experience considering the cost. Having played Florida Courses for the past 20 year, the elevation change at Tilden, combined with the green landscape was visually striking. The course is well maintained and green; which is surprising considering the present drought conditions. The greens are smooth and true; but somewhat on the slow side. My only negative comment is the course is not well marked (hole #, yardage, navigation arrows to next hole). Regardless, I can’t wait to go back and play it.
Not worth the money
The only positive thing I can say is the snack shack was great. The course was not in good shape. Not one tee box has grass :( tee times were to close and they had a tournament going on. :(
