Salt Creek is a fun course with tight fairways and usually fast greens. They are adding actual sand to the bunkers so that will help overall. The lay out is challenging and is a links style course where you can play a variety of shots. I like playing this course often because the lay out is so different than the typical California golf course. I would recommend this course to any golfer while the course is challenging it offers plenty of opportunities to score

Overall the round was ok., we just didnt realize that the greens were recently punched. It was a bit of upsetting to expect the greens were punched and sands. We were expecting a course and greens that we played before in great shape. I would not reconmend to play until maybe next 7 weeks

I noticed my Hot deal tee time was in middle of big group tournament , which flow so slow and many players were even drunken. There was any controlling rangers on the course. I had to give up

after 9 holes taking 3 hours. And no water available on the course in hot weather.

It was a terrible experience.

The course is really coming around. There are issues with the traps and some rough but play ground under repair. This course will beat you up if you play sloppy, but take your time and manage the course and it's well worth the day. This will be all fives when the rough spots are made well again.

Salt Creek is one of the few courses on our region with a links style feel. Fast undulating fairways, large greens (in great condition right now), and trouble to both sides if you are errant. The course plays shorter than its length due to the run in fairways, and three of the par 5's are reachable from the appropriate tees for your game. Just a real golf experience, and very fun, with lots of memorable holes.
