The GREEENS

Are the greens diseased with something? Patchy and folks can't seem to fix their ball marks make for some sad playing greens.

Good for what you pay for

Greens were very bumpy and no one I mean no one repairs ball marks. Some tee boxes were awful and the bunkers need work and sand. Fairways weren’t cut too well but fine. Still enjoyed the round but if your looking for a well maintained course this might not be your first choice.

Soggy, but quite good

The wetness was purely due to the huge storm 3 days before, and I'd say the course was doing pretty good considering. The greens are decent, but not great. I think it's partly because too many golfers ignore their pitch marks. This course can challenge you, but it's very playable for high handicappers as well. I'll be back for sure.

The course is in great condition greens are challenging but roll true. Stay below the hole or try to avoid a 3 putt!

Fun layout, not so fun prices

The experience was fun even on a windy day. $40 carts are over priced. Staff seemed to be very nice regardless. I thought the course could’ve been more maintained for the price paid. I think the course needs to have a better website to better understand the layout of the course. I also did not find a scored card to help out. 3/5 experience. Would come back again at cheaper prices.

no marshal - persistent long-term problem with people sneaking on course

This course is close to where I live in Pacifica, and I like playing Sharp Park, the staff are nice, the bartenders are great, the food is good, and the course is kind of rough in places but it's a beautiful and fun course to play. But the lack of any marshalling on this course really, really SUCKS, because people sneak on the course ALOT. I've played there 3 times in the last month, and 2 out of 3 times, people were sneaking on the course and playing ahead of us. A few years ago I got frustrated with this problem and I just stopped playing there. The free loaders like to come in on holes, 4 or 8, where they can access the course from the road. It sucks because these guys sneak on and slow down everybody else, and they play for free, and yet the rest of us are paying and keeping this course going. It's f'ing ridiculous that they are still allowing this to go on. The Cit of SF needs to hire some people to marshal this course who actually drive around and check to see if people are paying, and maintaining the speed of play. Instead the maintenance guy comes out - but only if you call the office and request him. I've never seen this happen anywhere except this course, where they let free loaders play for free, and just ignore the problem. There's other issues, with people trying to replay holes and cut through the trees, and you'll see 5-somes and even 6-somes out there. It's because nobody ever comes out of the office and patrols the course. It's disrespectful to those that pay to play, which is - Hello - how it's supposed to work.

Best twilight deal

Can’t beat $33.00 bucks plus cart. 2:30 tee not quite twilight but course in excellent condition. Fairways and greens tip top but cart paths could use repaying……won’t hold my breath. Great day of golf, great hot deal

Course is in good shape this week.

Beautiful day with sun and no wind. The course has greatly improved over the last month. The grass has grown out and the greens were in the best shape I have seen them in a while. Yes I wish the city would be able to put more money into keeping this MacKenzie course in better shape but it was a great value today. I see many comments in other reviews about the condition of the greens but wonder if these same people are the ones that aren’t repairing their ball marks! I was repairing 6-10 marks on every green. Consider others and let’s remember some basic etiquette on and off the course!

Course greens are fair at best

Though the course has descent fairways, the greens definitely could use a bit of care.

Fantastic layout, but not worth the price (carts are $40 in cash)

This has been my home course for 22 years, but outside of the greens being in fantastic shape (relatively speaking of course) it has fallen into disrepair. The tee box placement was in rough length grass, the cart parts are falling apart, making for a very rough ride, and the price is just not worth it. Hopefully with new funding supposedly coming soon, the course can work its way back into great form. If you haven't played it, try it, the layout is worth it, but outside of that, 15 minutes away is Crystal Springs GC, and for the same price (cheaper with a cart), you'll get a course in much better shape. Or drive an hour across the bay into the East Bay, there are state-of-the-art courses for $40 with a cart. At Sharp's, a cart will cost you $40...

Lastly, I am the biggest advocate for this course, I have sat through the environmental meetings when they were trying to close it down, but at this point, they are pricing themselves out of the average golfers. Maybe they should put in more housing there or make it a conservation area for wildlife...

Course is in decent shape. The greens were recently aerated so still sandy which made the rolls erratic, but the course itself is iok. Early afternoon tee time, there was no one else on the course so pace was excellent. The clubhouse bar/restaurant re-9opened and it is a great one.

Foggy Day at Sharp

The course is in average shape. Greens are lumpy and slow. Fairways can be inconsistent but play fair. Lots of holes in the fairways. Great value if you are from SF because of the discount residents get. $51.00 for the rest of us and that is without a cart. Plays in 4 hours.
