Lousy job at the front desk. Ride and unprofessional

Rude unprofessional staff at the front desk. Was told if I didn’t like I could leave. It’s not like it’s a five star golf course being treated very poorly

OK Course for a “cheap round”

Course is ok. I’m a little new to golf so I’m not really picky, but the course was extra dry, greens were garbage. Maybe one take at each sand trap. For $30 a head it’s OK but it could be so much nicer if better cared for.

So So

Played in 3.45 hrs. Tee boxes must have been same spot for weeks, little to no grass.. Fairways were decent shape for February. Greens were fast enough but many had areas in need of repair from gophers and disease

Get out and play it. It’ll only stay this good for so long. Until it dries up and turns back into hard pan.

Difficult Layout

A lot of fairway and green guardian trees. Hit two great shots on 10 to 30 yards and get blocked out by the overhanging tree in front of the green. Would be better with some tree trimming to not penalize good shots. Several holes similar to this. Greens had several bare spots.

Run the other way

I have payed golf for a while and played courses in 5 states and two countries and this was in the top two worst courses I have ever played. I would never play it again and would never recommend it to anyone. The greens are bad and the fairways are even worse!

Wow just wow

Went to play around to start the new year. It’s been wet and rainy so it’s obviously Cary path only which I total lay respect. On hole 6 the “owner” comes and starts screaming at me and my playing partner because for 50 yards I had veered off onto the fairway forgetting the cart path only rule. I had noticed as I was driving to my ball and immediately got back onto the car path. As I’m beginning to swing the owner comes yelling at me and my playing partner telling us he would kick us off if we do it again. I explained I drove on the fairway on accident and that I was sorry. The man continued to yell and scream like a lil type child. The greens are u terrible conditions teeboxes are dirt. And fairways a patchy at best. We were willing to overlook all of that but obviously this man has no business running a golf course. Worst experience I’ve ever had. I’ve been playing this course for 25 years and now unfortunately I’ll never be going back. Sad to see what was once a northern California hidden gem has turned into a resemblance of a half way house/ trailer park. If only you could give 0 stars. Please save yourself the time money and go anywhere else cause they probably don’t want your business. My player partners company just pulled their charity tournament they were holding there as a result.

Courses in bad shape

We started off with a cart that was practically dead. The course is in bad shape, it was either super wet or hard as a rock. Half the greens were torn up , unfortunately unless the course get some serious work done to it I probably won’t play there ever again.

Rough shape.

Very poor conditions with a number poorly designed holes. Took the “hot deal”. Should’ve spent more. Definitely won’t be back.

Dry Creek GC has maintenance opportunities

On New Year's Eve, a buddy and I played Dry Creek GC in Gault. It was a cold, wet, and foggy day. The range was closed due to flooding. The putting green was open and in good shape.
The first tee box was in ok condition but did need maintenance (as others do - see photos).
The fairways showed a lack of maintenance. They had not been mowed for several weeks and had broken branches, twigs, etc., cluttering the course.
While the course is named Dry Creek, it wasn't - which is good. This year had been dry so it is good to see the rain and resulting water in the creeks and lakes.
The course has two new bridges, is well constructed, and looks great (see photos). Well done!
The greens show disrepair. The fungus has hit most of them, so putting was a challenge in most instances (see photos).
The cart paths also need maintenance (see photo). I had difficulty staying dry and mud-free while driving the cart.
After the round, we hit the cafe and bar. The food and beverage were good (see photo). The live fireplace is a nice touch.
Overall, I like the track. However, there are many maintenance issues to address. I look forward to returning after repairs.

Super slow

Course conditions were ok, layout is good and some holes exceptionally long. But overall nice course. Talk about slow play that day is an under statement, they had a six some, five some that slowed everything down to LA traffic. Course needs Marshall’s to speed up play or limit to four somes. Took 4 hrs to get in 13 holes.
