Blackberry Farm

Very nice course except for the greens. The greens were very hard so none of my pitches/ chipping would stick. Also very slow because the ground crew was watering them. Nothing worse then golf balls hitting the green and not sticking and slow putting due to being wet.

Still a really nice 9 hole course. Definitely will play there again

Shady like Prunridge but narrower fairways.

Great course with small practice green and a place to hit against a net. Restaurant onsite but no tap beer. Good discount if you played a round. Reasonable prices. Quality food. Will play again.

Pleasant surprise

My first time playing at this course. Met with my niece and her fiancé - for both - their very first time to play on a golf course. The course is beginner-friendly. Would recommend any new golfer to come and play here. And if you’re a more experienced golfer looking to play 9 holes - come too. There are two par-4’s to break-out the Driver.

Waste of money

Paid online for 18 holes and they kicked me off when I got to the 10th green horrible customer service and staff was unfriendly. Complete waste of money and will never play this course again.

Scammed

I paid for 18 holes on line and they kicked me off when I got to the 10th tee box. Course was also in bad condition with lots of divots.

Great round!

It’s a perfect little 9 hole to take the boys out and play.

Blackberry Farm- Staff was friendly

It was the first time I took my boys golfing. The staff provided excellent service and advice. “Just let the kids play and let them have fun. At the end, offer them a cold treat during this hot day.” We will definitely return.

Greens are too slow

The greens are groomed well with no bare patches, however it feels like it was cut too long. Putts were slow. You shouldn't have to feel that you need to power your putt for a 6-10 footer to just get it to the hole. In one day, I golfed 3 courses, I golfed this course in between Rancho del Pueblo in San Jose and Deep Cliff. Those two courses had nearly perfect rolls and reads on putts. It made Blackberry a bit putting unsatisfying.
