Under construction

The back 9 is under construction, there were a bunch of workers in the fairways and the 17th was completely closed.

The front nine is flooded in several holes, even though we haven’t gotten rain in months.

Course Improved

Regardless of improvements and before we get into it. Canyon is a fun place to spend the day. Putting and driving range are a solid warm up before you play a round. Hang out an have drink later to reflect on the fun you had.
Improvements made. Lengthened par 3 hole 5. Lengthened par 5 hole 18.
Come out and give this place a play. Expect solitude with nature. Your cell phone won’t work. So put it away and embrace nature.

Easy yet Challenging

The course layout is well thought out. If you can hit straight is can be a pretty easy round. But don't miss the fairways or you will be losing your ball.

Front nine is in great shape. Back nine is undergoing repair with new irrigation being added so it is not in the best of shape. Should be, once the work is completed. and proper irrigation can be done..

Cart paths are mostly dirt and gravel. It would be great if they were paved, but failing that at leaset the should be smoothed with new gravel laid down

Great experience

The staff was kind and prompt. The pace of play wasn't that great, but that was because we had a group of 5 in front of us that were playing whack-a-mole. Not too much the Course Marshall can do about that. The course was a little dry compared to other courses, but this is NorCal, soooo...yeah!! Overall, I'd recommend this course to others.

Scenic and fun.

I play1-2x /wk. Usually full length (6800+ yds). But, I really enjoy this little course (roughly 6200 from tips), for its natural beauty, pleasant weather, NICE GREENS, and fun layout (nice variety of holes). I personally feel it plays tougher than it's (116?) rating..and enjoy the number of different club selections required. It can sometimes present slow play, but due to its length, even slow play often results in a <4hr round. Lately, there may be more "novices" playing, but they almost always make an effort to play as rapidly as they can. A lot of course improvements completed and ongoing lately (new drainage, new and repaired tee boxes). All good stuff. I'll continue playing there every 3-4 weeks on weekends, because I feel it's very good "bang for the buck".

Way Too Slow

Had a 2 p.m. tee time but there were 3 groups on the first tee at 2 p.m.

Finished play of 18 holes (many walked off earlier) at 7:25 p.m. -- over 5 and 1/2 hours

This is the slowest I've played in over 5 years.

Good value, ok course

About what you expect for $28. Tee boxes were a little beat up, greens were pretty good, bunkers were good but shallow, fairway was good but the ground was hard and rough varied. Staff was nice, beer was cold.

Not bad

The course needs a lot of work. Lots of bare spots, Marshall’s more concerned about hunting for balls than pace of play.
