Favorite Executive Couse In the Area

This is my favorite executive course in the San Jose area. First of all, the range is inexpensive relative to the other ranges I've been to in the area. It's an irons only range, but I don't need to be warming up my driver for an executive course. Mats are in good condition and i havent found many cracked range balls. One minus about the practice facility is that there's no chipping green.

The course is good fun. A good place to learn. Holes 5 and 6 are decently challenging though. It has been raining so some of the the tee boxes you need to hit off mats. With that being said the bunkers are still nice and soft. Greens were in excellent condition. Pace of play can be a bit slow as it seems this couse is popular with the senior crowd.

Great Course for Quick Play

Careful for frost warnings on the course. 7am is too early until the thaw begins by 815.
Try to get out before the regulars or you will have to play extra balls to kill the wait time
Otherwise Sunken Garden is an awesome course for anyone’s game experience

Love This Course

This course is always fun. Just the right amount of challenging. My only complaint would be that it’s popular and the course can get backed up. Otherwise, it’s awesome.

Laid back course but strict rules

Mostly par 3 course, average conditions. Strict rule on having your own clubs and bag even though it's a really short course. They have rentals.
