Worst Course I Ever Played

The course conditions were the worst I have ever played in 40+ years of golfing. You couldn't find your ball eben if you hit it in the fairway. That course is never maintained, We all know it rains in the winter but when there are consistently the same lakes created by poor drainage in the same locations over and over it shows a lack of professionalism by the course staff and a lack of investment in the course itself. I was ready to quit after 13 or 14 holes. The course is also overbooked with 8 minute intervals between tee times creating 5 1/2 to 6 hour rounds frequently. Unfortunately the course is close to my home and I want to play there but always seem to be dissappointed.

Seriously!

I read the reviews about how awful the course is and the pace of play is awful and I wonder what ate people talking about.
Especially the ones ssying “I understand that they flooded with rain but still”. People it is not like taking care of your front yard. There was hundreds of thousands of cubic ft of sludge and silt washed onto the course. I heard cars floated away in the parking lot. A whole green sunk. What do people expect. 3 or 4 months closed with no revenue added to the expense of all the cleanup. From that point of view they have done a great job. How many of you peopke support the golf course and buy merchandise? How many stop and thank the pro’s and the maintenance staff for getting the course to this point. Ive played alot of golf there and never see anyone fill fivots, fix ball marks and rarely rake traps. But you come here and bash them. Course is in great shspe considering and looks like other positive fixes have been started. Cut them a break and support our local course. We arr lucky to have it and the golf pros that run it. My kids do the junior program and chris and michael who work with them are fantastic. Yes 6 hrs is a long time but if people quit going where they say not to and stop bringing girlfriends who do not know golf cuz they are trying to impress them and just play golf it may be quicket. That being said, I played in 5:10 mid sunday morning. I will take that on any muni.
Its never going to br pebble but for the price and a muni it is pretty good. Thanks again to the staff. Keep doing what you are doing.

Been driving by this course for 27 years.

I finally had a chance to play Las Positas Golf Course. The fairways had areas of bare soil. Lots of ground under repair. The greens were rolling well. This course was a good value for playing on a weekend. It was good for walking.

Work in progress

This course is like a a ex-girlfriend or wife. It’s a work in progress. You show up hoping for the best and settling for what you got. Realizing why you haven’t been back in awhile.

The rough is muddy and slick…can take a person out if you’re not careful. Will come back when can’t find another tee time on a Sunday.

Lost its Luster

I cannot believe the direction this course has gone. Having a rate of almost $80 for a round and the course is beat up. The greens crews must be day labor from Home Depot. Fairways and Green side rough look like a blind man mowed them. Pin placement was not bad but again 1/2 depression or the reverse of that for the previous day pins. Driving range is not looking any better and thin range mats show no love to your clubs. Overall this course currently is a 45-50 dollar round at best. If it wasn’t for the Staff who was as great in the club house and Bebe’s it would be a place to board up.
It’s really sad because it use to be a great track, I can only hope ownership can turn this around.

Surprised!

After the difficult winter and the aparently, horrendous, draining logistics around los Positas, I was pleasantly surprised by the playability, and the excellent condition, other tees and greens. I will be back👍👌🏌🏿‍♀️⛳️🇺🇸

Extremely slow pace of play

Rather play Dublin Ranch as there are marshals that will speed up the group that is running slow. I saw just one marshall driving around during the entire 18. It took over 5.5 hours to finish. Not recommended and will not be coming back.

Nice course but conditions could be better

Got on as a Golfnow hot deal so the green fees were low. Had a little bit of tropical storm Hillary blowing around so there was leaves all over a few greens. Fairways were okay. Bunkers need some work. Pace of play for our afternoon start was great. Got done in less than 3 hours and 15 mins. For me this is a once a year golf course due to conditions and distance from home.

Lousy Marshall’s

The pace. Of play was horrific. While the Marshalls kind of did their jobs, they didn’t solve the problem. 1 group was 3 holes behind and yet the Marshalls didn’t hold them up so other groups to play through nor did they force them to skip holes.

Should a municipal course be this horrible in Livermore?

I grew up in Pleasanton and Lospo was the only place to play. The 9 hole at the fair grounds and San Ramon Royal Vista was it. I moved out of the area and hadn’t play there I years. Played there with an old high school buddy in his weekly group. I was shocked at the condition of the course and young guys in the pro shop with no social skills is not a shock and to be expected at most places. Green fees and and the beat up cart did occur to me after the third hole. Everyone said it was because of the storms. That was April!
Just why the high fees, crappy carts, no beverage carts (and it was Saturday) rude pro shop guys and the course was beat up. From the tee boxes to greens just horrible.
Why?
