Great Time at Cordova

My wife and I played Cordova (again...) today, and we had a great time. The course is coming around, and gets in better shape each week. The pace of play was fantastic, and the on course marshall is a great guy, who offers water to everyone. The staff is really nice and helpful, and there are plenty of goodies available after the round. If you are looking for a fun golf outing, give Cordova a try.

Great Day Out On The Course!

Played Cordova Golf Course today with my wife, and we had a blast. The pace of play was excellent, the staff is as friendly as can be, and great after golf food/drinks. Also, the on course Marshall offering cold water to all the gofers was a nice touch. The course was a little dry in places, but overall, very nice. Please keep in mind, that this is not Augusta or Pebble Beach, but it is a wonderful course. Can't remember when we had such a fun, relaxing time playing golf. Give Cordova a try, you won't be disappointed.

Cordova Golf Course

It’s the perfect course for beginners, flat & not long
4900 yards from back tee’s.Par 63
Great place to actually get your swings in other than the driving range.Anyone just starting the game of golf should start here price is $29 walking + $15 if you wanna ride.
You can really work on your short game here with
Some challenging par-3’s.
It’s a good place to build some confidence in this very tough & humbling sport before graduating
On to more challenging courses

Cart rental fees excessive

$29 for the round was fair. $15 each for a cart was ridiculous. $44 each total cost for an average course with sprinklers running, swamp and dead areas?? We could have played Empire Ranch or comparable for the money.

Great Beginner Course

The course is wide open, each hole is pretty much a straight shot to the flag. Great course for beginners since there is no “rough” grass on the course. The course offers a lot for being so cheap to play.

Many Long Par 3's and Very Small Greens

Cordova Golf Course always brings out a challenge due to it's many long par 3's, averaging around 180-200 yards, and its very small greens. Greens are a little slow, but need to be due to the heat / hot weather, keeping them green and not getting burned. Fun test for the price. Cheapest 18 hole golf course in the Sacramento area. Better value than Antelope Greens.

First timer

Course has a nice layout and is great if you want a quick 18 holes. Finished round in 3 hours flat but had to skip one hole in order to get in front of 2 groups of extremely slow players. Would recommend mandatory use of carts to speed up play. Nice fairway and greens and lots of shade trees. Will play again.

Slow play

Overall not a bad place to play. Had a tee time at 1:30 for 18 holes but ended up only playing 9 due to the extremely slow pace of play. Waited at every hole for at least 15-20 min.

I would only recommend this course for tee times early or during the mid week. I would not recommend this course on weekends or afternoon tee times due to the speed of play.
