Slow Play - Fast Greens

The pace was ridiculously slow. The course is overbooked. Full stop, that's a money grab.
We got through 8 holes and stood on the 9th waiting for 10 mins after 2:40 tee off! No exaggeration. Beautiful views of the valley if you're into taking pictures and not playing golf this is your spot.

Course not in good condition and certainly should not be that expensive. Other courses in the South Bay are cheaper and better

Not your typical course

I have been playing this course for over thirty years and everytime I say I won't be back but it seems to be the only tee time available. You just do not get flat lies and the greens are very difficult due to the massive slops. Hole 8 I was pin high and missed on the low side and it rolled almost twenty feed down the hill. Just do not feel this is how golf is meant to be played. Will not be back just not fun to play it.

Weird greens and no perfect lies.

I haven’t play here for a very long time. The last time I played here it was called Summitpointe. First off the hitting range (iron only) seem to improved cuz you can hit on grass now. As for the course it still the same layout. Your tee shot might be good but your approach shot are always on uneven lies and can make your day into a frustrating outing. The greens are really tough to read and if you missed low the weird thing happens your ball be rolling down to the bottom. The worst part is majorities of these greens are straight set to kill your game. The front 9 seem to be a lot enjoyable than the back 9. The back 9 are much more narrower fairway and if you get windy day. Then from hole 15 to 17 is like hitting into topical storm like wind and hole 18 is just straight up ducks and geese poops heaven. I’m not sure why this course is are expensive than other course around them. If you want to challenge your game and play on uneven lies and uphill approach shot then this is the course for you.

I enjoy Bay View

The greens are consistent and challenging. The pin placement forces you to play smart. Tee boxes are decent, some forward tee setups leave little space to tee up. Fairways in good shape, under repair areas minimal. Overall a great course I enjoy playing.

Great greens. Rough fairways

The course played well if you're a good target golfer. Lots of under repair areas and the tee boxes were rough. It looked life they were making headway in repairs. Would recommend, fun course.
