Most Underrated Course In Bay Area

Bang for buck here at the Creek. Greens just punched so in a few weeks greens will be semi healed again. They have been good all year. Very healthy.
The course has wind and a long front nine, tighter tree lined back.. Some say boring —I beg to differ.
Each year looking around at scores, Every city championship has an under par champion except this one year in and year out, as even par is good.
Sea level golf at its best, no frills just golf.

Perfect day

I Made a hot deal tee time at Diablo Creek. I have played here for many years. I met a guy named Jose, we had a great time out there. We played in 3 1/2 hours. The greens are in fantastic shape.

JDA

Greens were incredible. Fairways were in very good condition. Rough had some dirt patches. Most of the carts need the seats replaced. Only complaint was having a fivesome in front of us. Just a suggestion to all courses ; pro shop should guide players which tees to play based on their skill level.

Pace to slow

I have been playing here for the last 2 years several times per month. The only thing I dislike about this coarse is pace of play. There is rarely a Marshal out on the coarse. I even see groups of 5 going out. Diablo Creek has so many positive things about it. Just need to work on coarse management/pace of play.
Best regards
Doug.

Nice round if you can get a good price - flat course though

uninteresting layout for the most part, although a few tight fairways and tree lines on the back nine could get you into trouble. Length is always a factor so challenge is there.

good test for those trying to hone their game for length while allowing for some errant shots... low slope gives you some relief

don't come here for a special round or impressive views...

The green are slow and bumpy. Could use better maintenance.

Better than I remembered but not worth the regular price

staff at checkin wasn’t exactly creating a relaxed and welcoming environment, but mostly my problem with this course is simply that it isn’t as exciting or memorable as I feel it should be for the price. Flat muni type course, albeit long and technically difficult. Conditions weren’t bad although greens were pretty slow despite generally dry weather. Won’t go back unless I’m getting a discount.
