Repairs Being Done

I love this course because of all the beauty around it. The course is in repair,. Right now the fairways are pretty much dirt and grass clumps, They have removed alot of trees and are in the process of cleaning out their ponds. Some of the greens have damage. Still, had a great time!

Repairs Being Done

First of all this is a beautiful course. The owners are in the process of repairing a lot of things. Once they get it all done this will be an awesome course. Right now some of the repairs are a little challanging, but still it's beautiful here and the views are worth the price you pay.

Beautiful course

My friends and I recently took up golf and we decided to try mace meadows. It is a gorgeous course and the staff couldn’t be friendlier. We can’t wait to head up there again.

Disgrace to be on GolfNow.

Not much to say about this place. GolfNow should not list this course yet. The pro shop staff didn’t seem to be interested in the golf course and one of the owners was the most unprofessional and unfriendly person. Of 24 years of playing the game, practically all over the world, Asia, South Pacific Islands, and Europe, we’ve had the the most horrendous experience at this course. The only thing good about the course is the natural scenery and the animals and birds. Sorry but no recommendations for the course unless the owners have been changed and some miracle happen.

One and done

Paid $30 which was $29 too much. Worst course conditions I have ever played. Greens were sandy and slow, but somewhat true - 5/10. Tee boxes were really bad - 1/10. Fairways pretty bad too 3/10. In fairness: It was January, the weather was nice, pace of play was good, and the manager was friendly.

Target Golf Practice Round

Enjoyed the course for the price. Tee box were a little hard, Being a mountain course expect patchy grass areas in some of the fairways. So you will want to play target golf with lift and place. Greens were relatively in fair to good condition ball rolled nicely.

Actively improving

At first glance, you might miss the course off of the road, and it looks like it has seen better days. That being said, the staff were some of the most friendly and open that I have ever met at a course, and the other players on our day were friendly, helpful, and good for cross banter. The greens are being worked on and improved, as hole 8 has a temporary green up while the established green is being overhauled and the surrounding trees being trimmed and kept up. The back nine has one of the prettiest holes that I have seen, but being winter time, the weather is taking its toll, but they have seeded the greens for spring and it looks like it will be much improved.
I am looking forward to going up and playing many more times!

Mace Meadows needs a makeover

First time playing the course, and I had difficulty finding the entry as I discovered on the way out of the parking lot, that the sign for the golf course was not facing the street but propped against a tree.

The course itself was very dry, which is to be expected at this time of year but really dry. Goose droppings cover 3-4 greens. Green conditions were unputtable in places. Directions around the course was at times confusing to say the least. I finished the 6th hole and proceeded to what aesthetics should have been the 7th tee, but was actually the 9th. I later found a small sign with small text pointing to the 7th tee. Two other groups playing that day has similar issues. The guys running the place are very friendly, but the course needs maintenance. I’d only play there again under its current conditions if the price to play was $20.00

Worst course conditions I've ever played on.

Course was in horrendous condition, I know its summer but for $40 a person I expect more. Sand traps basically were overgrown weeds, greens should be called browns and the tee boxes were dried sand traps with patches of dead grass.

Worst Golf Course of the year!!!

I’ve played over 50 rounds of golf this year, all over Northern Ca. This without question was the worst golf course I’ve played. Tee boxes were mostly dirt and weeds, fairways were overgrown with patches of dirt and weeds everywhere, bunkers had zero sand (mostly dirt) again filled with weeds, lastly just about every green had major dead spots of dirt and sand throughout....needless to say extremely disappointed after more than a hour drive away!!!! Never again

JUST REOPENED

This course is at an altitude that snow affects play part of the year. They opened the back 9 a few weeks ago, but just opened the front. They haven't been able to do much grooming of the fairways on the front and have done nothing to create an intermediate rough. Therefore anything off of the fairways or greens is into lost ball territory. Once properly groomed, it will be a very scenic mountain course.
