"Not a bad course, but no course management and terrible pace of play"

Welcome to a 6 hour round of golf! Too many back to back tee times, and no marshal on the course to keep people moving. We had two foursomes in front of us, both groups older and were taking almost 15 minutes to get to the green on the average par 4. It was the most frustrating round of golf I have ever played. Ten strokes for each player before they reached the 150 marker. No one to push them forward, and no chance to play through. This is the 7th time I've played this course, and 5 out of 7 times were exactly like this. Such a shame for a decent course, and pretty fun layout.

Need to have course marshall police those players with poor etiquettes and have them warned. We had two walking players hitting the balls onto the green while we were still on the green .

The course has not been watered and has is patchy on most all fairways. The greens are green and fuzzy (unmowed). The squirrels have taken over so that you will lose a ball down one of the hundreds of holes on each fairway.

The start time was somewhat mixed up with groups going before and after us causing a delay. Things went downhill from there. The course seems to be quite dried out on the grass and riddled with gopher holes and swampy mud puddles. Also if you are not familiar with the course, you can get crossed up with no layout of the holes shown on scorecard.

This course was much better than expected! I travel a lot for work and try to take advantage of various golfing all over the US and, for being a public allowed course, this was pretty great! It re-instilled the thought that not all great courses are private; being a links course, I found the layout and scenery refreshing and beautiful to play on. Some other reviews commented on the amount of goose feces on and around the course, but I didn't notice some over-abundance of it. The thing I ran into most were squirrels and gofers; that said, there were thousands of gofer holes on the courses edge, but it's fine. Overall, the scenery was great, the fairways were great and the only variance that was a bit difficult to read were the greens- they were very bumpy, but still enjoyable. I'd play here again anytime.

Small hard to read greens, well bunkered-only surface raked-hard packed under so your SW will bounce and skull. Heavy dew mornings-very windy afternoons. If you go low here you got some serious game.

I have played this track many times ime. While it can be very windy. Robert Trent Jr has

taken that into account.. it is very playable with the Wind coming at you, or coming from behind most of the holes which I enjoy as opposed to Poplar Creek in San Mateo With the Wind comes directly across the fairways and can play five to six Strokes more.

Lenny in the bar is a hysterical he has been there a long time and is a seasoned professional.

very playable greens are great. Fairways always need work a good value for the money

I normally play this course because for an average golfer like myself, it is competitive, challenging yet fun. However, all the greens were aerated 2-4 days before, plus they had approx 6 temporary tees due to course maintenance. While this is normal, it would have been good to see this announcement on golf now or somehow in advance to allow the golfer the option to find somewhere else to play until the maintenance is complete. Or at least only have to pay a fraction of the cost, not at full price!

Course was in good condition. Fairly quick greens that were well maintained. Walkable, and had many slow moving walkers slowing the pace.. Waited on many holes to take my shot. No marshalls! No drink carts. But nice atmosphere.

Enjoyed some beautiful November NorCal weather at Shoreline recently. Driving range is decent as was over all course condition. Greens were very bumpy but tee boxes were nice and fairways pretty good. Met and played with a couple nice guys but because the 4some in front of us were walking (slowly) we waited A LOT. Never saw any sign of a Marshall so on a couple par 3's it backed up 3 groups. Nice guy in pro shop....had fun....good food after.

Greens were bumpy & green speeds were inconsistent (we were told at the course that the greens were aerated 2 weeks before). Fairways were fairly dry and had compacted dirt in many areas. The amount of geese and goose feces and ground squirrels and burrows were unreal. Don't leave any food open in your cart, the squirrels will steal it.

It was a beautiful Saturday when I decided to play Shoreline for the second time. I'd played once months ago, thought it was a nice track in bad shape and wanted to see if it was any better this time. Short answer, it was so much worse!

I actually quit after 9 holes and asked for and was given a refund. The staff couldn't have been any nicer.

The course was awful - fairways were all choppy, there were geese and their feces everywhere. Greens were slow and bumpy, and in some cases had dirt mounds on them. Tee boxes were ok. Course layout is still good. Pace of play was slow. 9 holes took 2.6 hours. There was no ranger on the course. On the 9th tee, the group ahead of me (there was a backup on every hole) also commented on how slow the course was and what poor condition it was in.

One other note, and this seems to be getting more common - greens fees are cheaper when booking online rather than calling the course. It's $70 over the phone or $59 on golfnow. However, I highly recommend you play somewhere else.
