Friday October 22nd

The course was in great shape considering it had been raining. Greens rolled good and the fairways had little roll because they were wet with some puddling. Will play again.

Just Okay Today

It was very slow today, lots of people out playing “5” hour round. The course wasn’t in very good shape compared to the last time I played. Grass was long, maybe because of water issues? The pigs are back destroying the fairway, it was a little rough today. The staff is great, and I love the scenery. Just okay today!

Goodforthepricebut that'sit

I grew up in Bay Area and played this course when it was willow park. Most all of tee boxes were either uncut or bare. No consistencies. The sand traps were ridiculous. They were wet and piles and piles of new San I guess. Basically you couldn't even hit out the trap. We just took a free drop. The greens were actually good. Price was good for a Friday. The starter wasn't calling groups to the tee box, so I had to go and ask if they were going to call us or what. Very strange. Overall fun with friends playing skins, beers and cigars.

Fun round, not looking for stellar conditions.

Needed a round for the day and tee times were available. I like the layout but the conditions are usually OK, not great. They are obviously working on it with many tee boxes under repair.

This place needs work

This course needs a ton of work. Not well maintained and very dusty as no cart paths. I’ve spent two hours after my round cleaning my bag and clubs to get all the dirt and dust out. I would shut this place down and get to an acceptable level that resembles a course.

This place earned its one star

If you like to play out of the mud or soaked grass then this place is for you. I heard “four!” more times in one round here then my whole life playing, the course layout is dangerous and terrible. There are many many better places to play for the price then this one.

Good but dangerous

Probably the most dangerous course I've played. The fairways are right next to each other, and a couple of balls came close to hitting me. Doesn't seem to have the most experienced players so not too many people can keep their play under control or yell fore if a ball is headed towards you.

Other than that it's decent for the money. The greens were really nice, the fairways are average for how dry it is, but the bunkers weren't soft and tee boxes need to be mowed.

The course layout is decent. There's a couple of challenging holes but most seem only slightly challenging, although it can be pretty easy to lose your ball through most of the holes because of the canyon terrain. Only a couple of holes had elevation, so for the most part it's flat and walkable. Plus the canyon keeps the temperatures down, so you won't be roasting in the heat.

Beautiful morning for 18 holes

Beautiful and fast greens, awesome fairways especially the front 9. Not too crowded at 8:10 on Wed morning, had a great time. Fairways can be tight so be prepared to duck when you hear FORE! and be prepared to loose some balls in the woods or creek.

Not for the faint of heart or beginners beware

Beautiful course with lush green fairways, fast greens, and lots of wildlife to enjoy. The fairways can be quite narrow at times so if you struggle with hooks or slices you may loose a half a dozen balls or so. There's a creek that runs the length of the front 9 and it will swallow your ball if you stray from the fairway. I played at 11:30 and it seemed very crowded for a Wednesday morning. Pace of play seemed slow at times and lots of balls crashing through the trees on the back 9. I'll be there next week with two goals, better score and less lost balls.

Strange course

First thing I noticed was that no data service in area. Couldn't get yardage through my phone. Hard to figure out tee box yardage since no marker showing white or blue. Didn't really enjoy myself since I had to wait at each hole.

Very slow play.

Very slow play. Needs sand in sand traps. Course appeared to be very wet, muddy and flooded in many areas. Greens were in good shape though. We ended up only played 9 holes due to the slow play.
