First Time Playing

Family friendly

It started a little rough because it appeared 3 high school ages kids were learning and messing around but on the 3rd hole they let us pass. From then on it was very nice, it also appeared to be very family friendly, the course itself was very nice, greens were good but unfortunately like a lot of courses,, golfers don’t fix divots and wear soft spike shoes but drag their feet. Lots of cats and geese which were a distraction in a good way for a couple of the golfers in my group.

Vastly improves

Watered and maintained. Plush green grass in fairways. Dead spots on greens but a heavily played course and diseases are common challenges for keepers so what can you do?
Much better condition in August than previous visits.

A Gem of Merced County

Rancho Del Rey is a nice course located in Atwater, Ca. For me it's a local course I love playing. It's 10 minutes away and the course is kept up fairly well. The staff is always friendly. I didn't go to the clubhouse today but when I do it's always staffed when friendly people. The pace of play this time was a bit slow as I was finally able to tee off about 10-15 minutes after me tee time. Seems that they could use someone monitoring the 1st hole to make sure people start teeing off.

Course condition was amazingly nice. Fairways was nice and green, green was nice and flat.

Only down fall is the pace of play after groups start to get backed up. Otherwise the course was really nice.

Not what I expected

Not sure how this course had a rating of 4, but this course is not even a 3. Greens were ok but the fairways were real bad.

Great layout, pour maintenance

Discourse is actually got a great layout except they don’t appear to put a whole Lotta money into the keep up of this course, the greens are terrible hard to get a feel on putting the greens. It’s just too bad they don’t put any money back into this course. Whoever gave this course a four star rating must be a homeboy.

Going down hill

This course has been progressively getting worse. Driving range setup is atrocious. Greens are a mess. Golf cart situation is a hot mess. People working there are really nice.
