Grass is greener on the both sides.

Nice day to play with minor back up
No complaint Practiced with more reps involved. The tee boxes need some work but the fairways are well kept.

Okay

Played this course before. Good value ($20 per person) except for the Convenience fee through site +$7 YUCK!

But course is not as kept up as previous visits. Lots of divots, sand traps unkempt, uneven tee-off areas.

Staff was nice and helpful.

Greens on the first couple of holes could use some work, but besides that good value.

Horrible Service

Showed up on time 25 minutes before tee time. Front desk clerk doesnt let me check in on time but lets 4 golfers who were 30 minutes late for their tee time to the 1st teebox in front of myself and others waiting to check in on time for their tee time. Not acceptable. Will not be coming back ever. Thank you Sunken for wasting my time

Par 3 with potential

Nice layout with some interesting holes. Tees are in poor condition - hard to find a place with grass. Very sloped, I assume to drain, however, makes it challenging to find a flat spot to tee. Greens are in decent condition and staff was very friendly. Nice food after the round too.

Average at best

Only book here if you can’t get a tee time else where. Greens are choppy and the play is slow especially on the weekends. The better course and value is Rancho. The course is well maintained and the staff is very friendly!

Fun course to work on your irons

The course is fun and the price is great. All but one of two holes are straight but they move the flags around to add some nice challenge. It's a great course to work on your irons. My only complaint is some of the greens need some work.

Below Average

I would rank this course below both Pruneridge and Blackberry, and maybe tied with Rancho del Pueblo. The condition of greens 1, 2, and 9 were horrendous, but the rest were fine. The tee boxes were all more sand than grass. I enjoyed the overall layout, and it’s not a bad deal for $20, but the conditions have a long way to go before I would recommend it over any of the other short courses in the area.
