Nice Course

First time playing this course and I really enjoyed it. We played after recent heavy rains though, and it doesn't drain well with the bay 100' away. It was very swampy! Layout is nice although not especially challenging. Greens were in excellent condition.

Thumbs up

Fun course, in an interesting location, it does remind me of other ex military base golf courses though. Pace of play really slow, but all in all it was a fun round. I give it a thumbs up.

Maze Course

Moffett course is a deceiving layout. It looks basic, and forgiving,,until you appreciate its long par 3s, challenging bankers, and several doglegs..
Playing at Moffett, reminds me of Maze game, since it requires some course layout familiarization.

AVOID if you’re allergic to mosquitos

Have played this course a few times. Came here on this past Sunday and found swarms of mosquitos in all the deep grass areas! These mosquitos are super aggressive in that they attack you and follow you all throughout the course. I couldn’t even finish the first 9 holes and decided to take off and save myself from becoming these nasty mosquitos lunch! Spoke to the staff that day, and he said that vector controls (city department) was suppose to be spraying and responsible for the pest control on the course. Apparently they didn’t spray the day before or for a while…

Golfers beware…

Pace of play was bad

Walked off after only playing 12 holes. Apparently they run tournaments on weekends. Wait was two deep on every hole. Marshall did nothing to move things along. Nice track. Will try again in future and hope no tournament.

Much improved!

This course has been well managed over the past few years. Everything continues to improve to the point where it has become a very solid deal to play here.

The course is fairly straightforward. The greens are flat and were a little slow yesterday but looked like they had been punch a few weeks prior.

Having fighter jets flying around only adds to the experience!

The mosquitoes were relentless! Bring bug spray!

One of the Bay Area's underappreciated gems

I've been searching for a second local favorite that's fun and affordable outside of my home course (Santa Teresa) and Moffett is a strong contender. I thoroughly enjoyed my first walk around it this summer. It was quirky and demanding and interesting, all at once. The conditioning was fine. The pace of play was questionable (as it is at all Bay area munis, it seems), but that's the only knock. It was tough to find the course once you get past the checkpoint to enter the NASA base, so leave some extra time just to make sure you're not late.

Moffett is a must play treat

Who cares about the wind. Embrace it. Beautifully groomed course. The grass is very consistant. Choice of club use will be a part of the challenge. Watering of course front 9 begins promptly by 8pm. So don’t lag if you play a late round.

An old gem … improved

I last played this about 15 years ago as a guest. The greens and bunkers are much improved and in very good condition. The fairways could use some work. The layout is a flat urban style but long and challenging.

Cool place

Interesting/cool experience to play on a Military base w/ helicopters above and airplanes on the tarmack. The course is well layed out with lots of interesting holes.

This is a fun course to play, staff very friendly. Sadly, pace of play is no longer a valued component to our great game. Even w/ tee time 10 min apart, there is just SO much slow play...5 hr 35 min round (painful).

Great greens and value

I know people comment on the winds playing at Moffett, but I played yesterday with a consistent two club wind that was extreme even for here. This course is a great value, it’s really hard to find a better place to play regularly to improve your game. As has also been noted the greens are always in great shape so you can just hit it the distance that you know you can with any particular club, and if you hit a good shot, the ball stops on the green. Because the greens are in such good shape, you can always put fairly well. Except for yesterday, when the winds were just crazy. But that again was unusual. The course did suffer a bit of damage from the heavy January rains, but it’s coming back nicely. The staff is super friendly and the restaurant has a great hamburger. I should also note that the sand in the bunkers is of a very high quality. No one wants to be hitting out of a bunker, but at least the nice sand let’s you give it your best shot.
