I started my play today with a foursome. After the first hole, I asked them if it was okay if I moved on...because I obviously thought their play was too slow. No fault of theirs as I like playing at a certain pace. There were other singles in front of me and I finished in 2.25 hours. No doubt the fastest round this year. The course condition were dried up a bit at some places, but it was worth the price I payed.

I mean for $35, its not bad. Decent course layout, but unfortunately the course conditions weren't good enough for me to want to come back. A lot of dirt and mud patches, gopher holes, crusty bunkers, greens were very spongy.

Its worth a visit, not sure its worth visiting again.

Course was in good shape. The only negative on the course was the fairways were heavily watered and you got no roll out of your drives due to the excessive water

12:40 tee time . . . and finished at 5:40, so just figure . . . 5 hours? Wide open holes ahead, but the twosome I played with were beginners. and one lost over 2 dozen balls.

Should have zoomed off ahead, but do not like playing alone.

Missed first half of the Warriors playoff game

Bunkers were crusty, hardpan. The one at the left of 18th green was so deep I could not get out (knee and hip replaced), and had to crawl out on my stomach

Are you complaining about missing a Warriors game that you choose to play golf over ? That's what DVR's are for :)

Course and staff were fine but they let out two groups of 3-somes that later joined to form a 6-some. Marshal broke them up on hole 4 but by hole 6 they were at it again, got broken up again on hole 9 but on 10 they formed back up and stayed that way the rest of the round. No one wants to play behind a 6-some. I though this was golf not basketball. Time to find another course to play, this is ridiculous.

I was very impressed by the course conditions. They were very satisfactory. We follow a twosome and the men's club. We did not have any sort of delay as the pace of play was excellent. A four hour round with a foursome? Wow!!! Cathy is always a pleasure when checking in. If my golf swing was half as good as this course, I'd be shooting in the 80's consistently.

I checked in about 50 minutes before my tee time. I had a 12:24 tee time and was told I could come back and get my cat at 12:15. 9 minutes before my tee time.Now the driving range and putting green are across the street from the pro shop. I was waiting for 12:15, I standing by the carts and some people were getting theirs ans I looked at the signi out sheet and their tee times were 10 or more minutes after mine. I went in and got my cart and said I thought it was interesting that others were able to get their cart earlier than me. She said nothing.

It's a fact that greens need to be maintained and plugging/sanding is part of that. It's also a fact that golf courses in general will not divulge this info unless asked. Revenue is king. DRUBBED AGAIN! Remember, usually in spring time, before you give them your money, ask what the conditions of the course are. Especially if you are using a golf broker like Golf Now or others.

The desk staff was fairly abrupt and unfriendly. Pace of play was awful, 6 hours of mostly standing around waiting. Had a group waiting in front of us, and a group waiting behind us the entire time. Never saw a Marshall.

Good looking and playing course though, and reasonably cheap. Give and take I guess.

Nice course, green speed good (fairly fast). My only complaint is they will not give you a cart until 10 minutes before your tee time. You must carry your clubs out to driving range or over to putting green. Stupid policy
