First Time Playing

Not bad

The greens and fairways were in good shape, I had no complaints about course conditions, other than some soggy areas. But I will take that over dry as a bone anyway. I like challenging holes, but it seems they had too many holes with big trees close to and in the line of sight of your shot off the tee box. I don't mind one or two but it seems like there were several, not due to course layout,
but failure to manicure properly. One par 4 has a giant tree directly in front of the green, which almost seems like a gimmick instead of a challenge. I am new to California so I guess $55 is the going rate for a course of this calibre, although that seems a little on the steep side. Having said all that, I was not disappointed, I will play it again, and wouldn't steer anyone away from playing it. It's just not in the "wow, awesome track" category, but definitely a C+/B-.

Lacking Upkeep

Course layout is good. Challenging Course. But too many dry spots in the fairway, dead dirt areas. Also, very soggy in other areas. The greens are bad. Dead spots, inconsistent, grooved, etc.

This course was once a gem. It's sad to see it so neglected and mismanaged.

Terrible course for the money

This used to be one of the premier courses in northern calif. Now fairways are under watered greens are terrible and traps are like concrete. Pro shop is filthy as is the bar and resteruant. No range balls and carts are old and falling apart. Staff is almost non existent. Said i would not play here after last time but thought I would give it another chance. Will never play here again. This is a $20 course at best

Fun layout and improving conditions

I've played Dry Creek a handful of times over the last year and like the direction the course is heading.

Main observations below:
- The greens can still use a little work, but they are in better shape than a few months ago.
- The new bridge and the 18th green being reopened was a big improvement.
- Pace of play is sub 4hrs if off before 7:30am. Later tee times can get pretty backed up.
- I really wish there was a driving range, or even some warm up nets. Warm up nets would be a minor investment and provide a great amenity.

Tee boxes have very little grass, greens should be in great shape this time of year - not here, dead spots, some with standing water, shaggy. The need to spend some money on improving the course conditions
