Good practice course

The 9 hole course is perfect for beginners or anyone needing to work on their swing or short game. The course is short and forgiving with little difficulty finding a wayward ball. There is little pressure from other golfers in speeding up play since everyone's in the same boat.

Short but still a fun challenge.

The greens were in good shape, the tee boxes were a bit awkward in terms of finding a good place to tee off and multiple tee boxes were fenced off. Overall it was a great value for the money.

I ranked course conditions as average, but because of our California draught, all public courses have suffered. All in all this course is pleasant to play, helpful for short game practice, and good value for the money. The staff have always been very pleasant.

Golf and Food are tops!

Sunken gardens is a hidden gem in Sunnyvale CA.
A short 9 hole course that is well maintained with a great price point for both the beginner and the professional! Not sure if the food or the golf is better?

Amazing Course

Beautiful course mostly well groomed greens. Lengthy tee boxes are in repair. But do not let that cloud your decision. Plenty of course to use
Sizable range and putting practice.
