I don't think that's a word by Tommy in the Pro Shop has consistently been over the top nice and friendly. This trip included me leaving my wallet at home and that was quickly rectified with a phone call and a credit card number. Tommy seemed genuinely interested in helping make sure I was able to play. Because it was Monday (Columbus Day for my school) he gave me options to join the 2 twosomes ahead of me or to play by myself. The reason I come back is #12. I hate #12. I am going to par #12. This time resulted in hitting my drive too well (are you kidding me) and just coming up short in the rough downhill before the gully. Another double bogey, thanks #12. If you want a challenge, at a good price with good conditions, Diablo Grande is worth the drive. Next time I'm taking Tommy out with me to #12 so that I can have him cut the big oak tree (or should I call it ball eater) and I'm going to get that par.

Now this was an awesome place to come and play some golf. After checking in with the awesome front staff he gave me my cart keys and told me if I wanted to warm up and hit some balls that it was complimentary. Free range balls before a round of golf, that's awesome. The course was in amazing shape the greens were fast Fairways and surrounding very well-manicured. Even the bunkers were Immaculate and believe me I saw quite a few. The refreshment card came around quite often only drawback was I'm laying off the meat so wish they would have some vegetarian alternatives to offer. This place was beautiful and I really mean that it's a little off the beaten path but well worth the drive considering I paid $14 for a day like this cart included. It was a 9:40am tee time. 4 people in the Stanislaus County and surrounding area this is a Hidden Gem I highly recommend it. There is also a Starbucks bonus bonus bonus.

25 bucks, empty course, great course conditions, beautiful surroundings. At some point this place has to catch on. It baffles me that such a spectacular course is often pretty empty...and cheap! If you're in northern CA, this is a must see. Its well worth the drive. Some of the tee boxes need the divots filled and the sand in the bunkers is closer to a light grain dirt. I'm guessing the wind would blow fluffy sand away. Those are my only complaints. 3rd time playing and will be back again.

For most of the bay area, this is a bit of a haul to get to. I'm no exception. Wanted to see what all the fuss was about so I made the journey from the San Mateo coastside early in the morning and it took me a little over 2 hrs.

Got an unbelievable aeration deal thru TeeOff. And to be quite honest, I didn't realize they had aerated until the 4th green!

This is a really fun course and I wish I wasn't so far away or I would make regular trips for it. Great open surroundings with fun challenges - carryovers ponds and small streams. Elevated tee boxes with some wide open fairways and some narrow thrown in to keep you on your toes. For me I really started enjoying myself around 7. This is when you get sight of the ponds and some teebox elevations. I recommend this course wholeheartedly especially if you don't have too far to travel to get to it.

The proshop personnel were very nice and professional. The "afterstaff" in the restaurant were great and I finished my round in exactly 3hrs on a Monday morning. They have a moose deal going right now, so take advantage if you can.

Absolutely love this course. I have been a regular for the last 15+ years. Course is in excellent condition and up until recently the staff in the pro shop has always been great and customer friendly. Got to the course 50 minutes before my tee time and wanted to warm up on the range and putting green. Guy in clubhouse refused to give me a golf cart. Said no carts until 30 minutes before my tee time. I was told if I wanted to warm up I could carry my clubs UP to the driving range then walk AROUND the clubhouse to the putting green. Went back to my car waited for my partner to get there. Paid him for my green fee and left without playing. I will be back but this is a ridiculous policy!!

Had not been down to Diablo in over a year. It is still one of my favorites in Central Valley. Course was in good condition, and actually surprisingly green for this time of year, and the heat we have had. Looks like facility overall has had a bit of a face lift, and everything looks more updated. Only complaint, and it is probably heat related, is the greens. The greens were very slow, which made scoring on and around the greens difficult. Definitely continue to play at Diablo Grande in the future.

The course was in excellent condition with the minor exception that the greens were rolling a bit slow and the grass in the cut rough was a bit long. I believe that both conditions were the result of this being the Summer and it can get quite hot in the Central Valley so the club needs to maintain the course in a manner that offers some protection against the heat. Overall, neither of these conditions of slow greens and taller rough made the day anything less than GREAT. What a beautiful course and all the staff were more than welcoming and friendly.
