The course is in good shape and they have added sand to most of the sand traps

It was smoky because of the fires in the area but playable

The course played great I play at least once a month there and the over all condition of the fairway and greens were the best I've seen this year they had really improved it the fringe was cut so you had a chance to hit a recovery shot

But please put some sand in the traps

They are harder then the cart path

I look forward to play again soon

Great deal for the $$

I play the course at least once a week. Basic course knowledge is that you should play most shots to the left, since the fairways invariably slant to the right. It's a fun course, but it's hard to score well. There are still a number of dead trees that need to be removed (notably on the first hole, where it impedes many shots). Greens are recovering from recent raking. Big gripe is that whoever digs out the new holes does not level the area around the hole. Thus, many a putt curving toward the hole makes a last-second detour in the other direction. Bunkers need sand (in a previous life at this course, Swabbies were assigned to weed the traps and level the sand). As it is now, in order to protect our clubs, we just take a non-penalized drop out of the traps. With the various promotions and special rates, this course is a good deal, but fixing the above-mentioned problems would make it more attractive each day. On weekday mornings, if you tee off about 10 or later you should have the course to yourself the rest of the day.

Very challenging course, reminds of a good links course. Careful,of the rattlesnakes though we saw 3 and the starter warned he killed a decent sized one earlier in the morning. Definitely worth the money, take a friend though as the pace of play is slow.

This course is challenging, but keeping the Mosquitoes at bay is the real challenge. All the yellow jackets in every trap and mud pocket with water in it was Intimidating. It's basically a bug breeding island of Torture . I'm wouldn't going back even if you paid me.

Figured a buddy and I would try a new course. The moscitos infested the course half way through the front nine. We left after nine having learned we will never be back or recommend Mare Island to a friend. Dramatic elevation changes on every hole, each green tattered and left the grass really long. Each putt the ball bounced a few times. Very disappointed but we learned we'd never come back, not even if it was free.

I feel that this golf course is a bit short for me.I hit from the blue tees , and on the 13th hole par 4 (296 yards) I landed in front of the green and onto the center of it.My first time ever putting for eagle on a par 4.Fairways were in ok condition and alot of them narrow.What impressed me the most was how nice most of the greens were. If you hit the ball in the fairways most of the time, you should be fine. If you have that dreaded slice on this course, prepare to lose quite a few balls here. Definitely worth a visit at the right price.

I realized when I arrived at the course that I had forgotten my wallet. It was over an hour from my home, so there was no thought of going back. I explained the situation to the staff person, and he graciously allowed me to play anyway. This changed what could have been a very frustrating and wasted weekend day into a very enjoyable round of golf. I was very pleased that I was allowed to play on- they just earned themselves a mountain of good will in my book. It was a perfect day of weather, with a nice breeze off the bay to keep it cool. Teeing off at 2 pm on a Saturday, I played in 4 hours! The views at the course are stunning- there is water on two sides, and several elevated tee boxes that provide panoramic views. A true gem, made better by the friendly and generous staff.
