Good course. Best part is its away from traffic and homes. Nestled in the Santa Cruz redwoods

Once restaurant is finished it should be back with complete food and bar. A little spendy in comparison to other courses. But challenging! Since its under the Santa Cruz city council they let parts of their course dey up on the fairway. I guess that's drought mgt..but kind of weird. I bet it drives golfers to other courses

If you want to be playing golf with disc golfers then this is the place to be. We had to wait for the disc golfers to play their shots on several occasions before hitting our shots. I was never notified that this was part of the course. What a terrible experience. I won't be back.

This is an old style course, that can be demanding from the blue tees. My wife played from the red and had a great experience. She's about a 30 index. My sons are scratch from the blues, shot high seventies.

Greens are awesome. This is a bucket list course.

Teed off at 8:37 and played 5 holes in one hour, that was great, then the wheels came off, took four and a half hours more to play the last 13 holes. No one was making the three groups that were two plus at the turn and four holes when they finished behind the group in front of them or pick up their pace, very disappointing.

This was a very nice relatively difficult course. It offers a very good selection of tight pinpoint Fairways and grip-it-and-rip-it. The greens were not in keeping with the overall course presentation and the amenities were down because the clubhouse was being redone I think overall for the value even go higher than a five-star

Started way behind time and it got worse. Foursome ahead were hitting two sometimes three times from tee. No marshall in sight. The greens impossible to read as two kinds of grass made the clumpy.

Perfect weather and great company!

DeLaveaga is a relative short course with tree line and course contour for defense. 5x par 3s and 3x par 5s for 70.

It has appearance of tight fairways with its tree lines; however, it is much more forgiving than its appearance. 250 yards seems to clear much of the trouble off the tee. Poa annua greens were on the slow side and rolled true enough.

I am starting to enjoy playing shorter courses. Especially, one of kind courses like DeLaveaga.

Perhaps, it was playing with my son. Or, the perfect 70 degree weather.

I would play DeLaveaga again.
