A name change nods to the past
The Mira Vista Golf & Country Club is no more. The private club located on a wildly rolling site in the Berkeley Hills is once again the Berkeley Country Club, its original name when it hosted the 1929 Berkeley Open won by Horton Smith (the first Masters winner).
The downhill holes are simply spectacular with views stretching for miles past the port of Oakland and into the San Francisco Bay. I felt like I was on a roller coaster ride - flying downhill one minute and then trudging painfully uphill the next. Because of these climbs, the course plays much longer than the card indicates. A 2011 renovation by Forrest Richardson solved one major routing issue (a par 3 over a road) and generally spruced things up. If you get a chance to play it, do it. Not only is it considered one of the Bay Area's hidden gems, but the members have earned a reputation as a friendly lot, something I can attest to after the hospitality at a fall media day event.
Greens were sanded the day before. Long drive up there. Should have been warned.
First time playing here, and it's a gem. The course is very hilly, and the greens are quite undulating, so you really have to know which side of the pin to play to. The greens rolled very nicely- not super fast, but smooth and above average in speed. The course layout is superb with many thrilling views of the bay and SF. It's not long, but it plays long due to the elevation changes. Overall, a difficult course.
Not crowded at all on a Saturday afternoon, and we played as fast as we wanted to. One thing to note is that there was only a snack bar open, which did not have anything like a sandwich or hot dog and there was no beverage cart. But the staff was very friendly. Overall, a real treat to be able to play here. Oh yes, and they supply you with free range balls.
Great course / Great Views of the Bay
Bring your best game, this course is challenging but a lot of fun.
what a gorgeous view
fellow golfers, this is a bucket list course, wide fairways, challenging greens, and the most outstanding views of Bay Area, I'll play again soon!
Just an ok but great and fun track with amazing views
First time at the course, greens rolled pretty true and decent speed. Fairways were well maintained, rough was dry. hopefully, they can upgrade their driving range or get a big net to the back of it. Very hilly and not very long from the tips. Absolutely beautiful views on 90% of the course. If you can play, I would say play and decide if you want to come again. If I lived closer, I would definitely play more here.
Gorgeous views. Great Layout.
Beautiful vistas on practically every hole. Great layout. At least for an average golfer, challenging, but fair. Very friendly accommodating staff. I will definitely return.
Great Value - Beautiful Venue
I spent as much time taking pictures as playing golf. Views of the Bay from most holes. Hilly with lots of slopes, but generally fair. Conditions quite good. Staff extremely friendly. Highly recommend for a last minute round of golf.
Fun course with great views
First thing we noticed when arrived was the view! What a great location for the club house and golf course. Staff were very welcoming and for a Sunday I was shocked at how quiet the course was. Golf carts looked brand new. Golf course had a few wet patches but overall was is good condition. Greens were smooth and great layout of holes in general.
Nice view of the bay
The course lay out with the 18 th hole give you a stunning view of the bay. The green is slower than normal.
Stunning view. Well cared for course ❤️
Berkeley CC is a Great Course
The layout is interesting and it is in great shape. Greens are challenging but fair. Excellent experience...
Great Old Course.
Classic old layout. Lots of up and down hills but not that tough. Beautiful greens with challenging undulations. Great views of the Bay Area all the way out to the Golden Gate. Five Stars.
Sick Green Complexes + Elite Vistas
First time out at Berkeley CC. 3 friends and I saw the member for a day deal pop up on golf now and jumped at the chance to check out the property. The drive up to the clubhouse through the east bay hills builds anticipation, and when you arrive through the gates you are greeted by a historic clubhouse and a sick! view of the entire bay. I won't walk you through hole by hole even though I want to. The course is not exceedingly challenging, but definitely not simple. Tricky, small green complexes and well-placed fairway bunkers were the highlights. Several tee shots offer elite vistas of the golden gate. Would definitely love another crack at this course, I did not play well at all but still enjoyed myself fully. Will for sure be back if the opportunity presents itself.
Great Views, Great Value, and Great Course
The views of the Bay Area are some of the best I’ve seen. The course is challenging but fair. The value for the price point is great. The staff is super-friendly, as was the member I played with.
Excellent. Resembles Spyglass
Super layout and challenging uphill approach to most of the greens. Highly recommend this course and at a very fair rate and exclusive location and view if the bsy
