Shocking pace of play. First 3 holes in 1 hr, front 9 in 3hrs. They sent someone out but all he did was drive past everyone and ignored the issue.

The issue being drunk idiots playing multiple shots a hole, putts on the green and all round slow play.

This is always an issue here, no one is ever speeding up play.

I was over an hour late for my tee time due to an accident that closed down the road that I was on, for 2 hours.

I called the pro shop about 30 minutes before my tee time to let them know that I’d be really late. The pro shop staff was sympathetic and entirely accommodating.

As soon as I arrived, they set me up and got me right out on the course.

An entirely enjoyable round and other than for 1 rough fairway (# 10, I think), the fairways and greens were in excellent condition.

The only thing that I’d say was in need of work would be the bunkers- somewhat light on sand.

I have been playing this course for 12-14 years and the last year the course has not improved. Yes, there is sand in the bunkers but some fairways - notably #10 - are awful! The greens are good. The announced consolidation with Shadow Lakes to one 18-hole track could be good but with no on course cart service, and who knows what the practice facility will be - or not... hard to get excited about going here.

Great value, friendly staff and surprisingly really well groomed greens! It was a perfect October Golf day in Northern California, no wind, lazy sun and mid day golf with a well spaced flight of players. I had a great time, shot a respectable 86 from the blues (please, there are no mulligans in golf, nor do-overs for missed putts). I even kept the language down despite blatant robberies that cost me more than my share of three putts. Did I say that the greens were in really good shape? They were and legitimately challenging.

Dear Ridge has always been a nice course, it has been longtime since I played last week, I was little disappointed there was no yardage sign at any all tee box, also only few holes have ball washer another thing is the 150yard marker are not noticeable.

with some of the course around Brentwood are closing

I feel Dear Ridge need to improve so it can attract all the customer around the area.

This is the worst shape I've ever seen this course. Fairways are long and the same for the greens. Hole 10 hasn't seen a mower in about a week. No fairway just rough. Very sad to see. Might not play this course ever again.

They should inform players that they have sanded the greens. Most courses do that. Also, some courses offer additional discount when the greens have been sanded. Otherwise, I always enjoy playing Deer Ridge. I will miss the back nine when they combine with Shadow Lakes. Also, some of the "regulars" are a little pushy about hitting into forward groups. We finished in 4 hrs so we were moving along.

Greens are fast and there are no straight putts ever.

Course conditions are not at all up to par and pace of play maddeningly slow. Fivesomes are far too common as well slowing play even more.
