Weeds are the only thing stopping you

I have been playing this course for 30 years, and I have never seen so many weeds in all my time out there.
The worst part you stripped a drive down the middle and your second shots are out of thick weeds.
I r some greens have them right in front of the green , that’s makes for a lovely chip .
They have made a lot of upgrades over the years let’s . Fix the weeds and greens.

Slowly declining

The Course condition is slowly declining and there are zero Marshall’s or starters to control pace of play. Used to be one of my favorite courses in the south bay, but now I have to go look elsewhere.

Good for the money, afternoon is pretty slow

If you are okay with teeing off in the afternoon (2:00 PM onwards) and waiting every single shot, then I think you will do alright here.

It is hard to tell, but I am pretty sure the pace of play is affected by how they set up the tee time intervals. I think that may be the cause, but I am not 100% sure. If you are a faster player (like myself) and want to get done in 4 hours 30 minutes or less, I would try to get out before 10:00 am at the latest. Otherwise, if you want to have a good time, have some drinks, go for the afternoon.

I did enjoy the course layout. It looked beautiful and the greens were in pretty good condition.

You do get people who are new to the game and unaware of fixing their own ball marks and divots. With that in consideration, this course is good condition.

Saturday

It was a typical Saturday Saturday at San Jose Muni but this day was worse than the other the last 4 holes awaited 15 minutes per hole to tea off as the force of enemy and the force I'm in front of them were acting like they were on the PGA tour

Dog Water

Save your $$$. The course is in terrible shape. Tee boxes are in worse shape than most hazards. Fairways aren’t any better. I’m convinced every 30+ handicap in the area makes a point to come here. You’ll play a 6 hour round and even if you pummel the fairway, you’ll be lucky to hit solid grass more than 10 times. Joke of a course. Staff doesn’t care about pace. Carts die & are terrible. You couldn’t pay me to come here.

Monday Monday

I stop’s there. What a wait I feel like I’m still waiting, and it was yesterday.
I know not to go on Monday because they have 2 slow moving tournaments every Monday .
No more Monday and saying Monday when it comes to the Muni.
I stopped at 9 even that hole was 3 deep to tee off.
