I played this course a couple of years ago and it was in much better shape then. Now, the fairways are parched and in some places cracking. You get a good rollout but you are generally hitting from hard, dead grass. Maybe they are preparing to reseed with a more drought tolerant grass. The greens were in excellent shape and fast.

Broken water pipes? course is all but dead except the greens. Bunkers like concrete, no sand and brutal to get out of. Smoke butts every where you look, really every where. I used to like playing this course, not so much now. Sorry to the staff, hope they get it together.

My first visit to Summitpointe was disappointing. While the layout is challenging with lots of narrow fairways, the condition of the fairways was sad. The fairways vary from 80% - 100% dead grass. Most of the bunkers had little sand in them. The greens were in very good condition. The driving range is short (no woods allowed).

While the course has lots of potential, the very poor conditions will keep me from returning.

course has ZERO access to outside water, leaving the fairways, rough and tee boxes in literal dirt. Fairways are filled with dirt and crab grass, scratching up club heads and ruining good shots. It would have been a good move for the club to let people know ahead of time the water situation, as I wouldn't have played here knowing that.

I feel I am fair & objective, and not a snobby golfer.

Played every course from Spyglass/Olympic Club. TO Pruneridge lately.

Even had a good round, here, with a great round putting . . . 4 part saves, 2 birdies, 2 puts for eagle.

The greens here, were ok . . . But,

Compared to 2 other courses in the area, San Jose Muni and Sunnyvale Golf, . . . the fairways & rough at Summit Point were flat out poor!

The golfer finding the fairways after hitting a good drive will find their ball sitting on a dry patch of turf, lumpy mixed matched crab grass, or at times a fluffy puff of weedy crab grass. Does this course have trouble maintaining, the usual " Green BLADE GRASS" that is found on other nicer courses?

The overall look of the fairways look dried out in most areas . . Are they holding out on watering to keep an attractive lush appearance? We are out of the previous water rationin aren't we?

If Not For The "GolfNow VIP", our twosome agreed, this wold not of been a value at all. And he was more vehement than I about Not returning!

Avoid this course, unless you are in practice mode, and get a good green fee!

I went here on a Sunday to play at 7:12am. While the views are great, the staff members are nice, and the course is challenging, the conditions are pretty awful. The fairways are long, dead grass, which is surprising given the rain we have had, and full of areas under maintenance or just plain swamp lands. The greens are mostly okay, but there were plenty of areas that were down to the sand beneath due to poor cutting / maintenance. Lastly, even though the fairways were oddly long, there were plenty of dead clumps of grass all over the place just waiting to hide your ball.

Just simply not worth the money, as the attention to detail is pretty poor.

First of all, its way over priced. Secondly, the pace was awful (we have to wait for every single shot throughout the whole round),Thirdly fairway is unfair, I have lost so many balls even my friend have slow motion videos, Last but not the least, holes are intertwined, too many people looking for balls in the same area. I'd pass next time

You shouldn't lose your ball in the fairways or first cut of rough. On this day, you spent more time looking for your ball then you do playing the hole under normal conditions. Seems like they haven't mowed for weeks. Not sure what is going on here but terrible conditions and definitely not worth your time or money.

I played Summitpointe a couple of times in 2015, during the drought period, and the course was bad, but understandably; I assumed because of the lack of water and the restriction being placed on it by San Jose Water Authority.

Two years later it is very green, but still in poor condition. It is as through they now have the water, but have run of of money. The Tee Boxes and Fairways are just in a very poor condition, the bunkers are empty, and the overall course, which seemed 'dry', was for 80% of the time 'cart path only'

After all the rain unfortunately the course has several unplayable holes on back nine due to excessive water in fairways. #15, 16, & 18. Either tee it up in those fairways or bring a little hitting mat.

My group was suppose to tee off at 1:45 but had to wait until around 2:15 to tee off because the course did not have any golf carts and made us wait by the cart barn to pickup a cart from someone who just finished.... Seemed like there was a tee time every 3 minutes (no spacing in between groups). Course was so backed up it took us three hours to finish 9 holes, gave up on the back nine and just decided to leave. Waste of money and time.

12:15 tee time and it took a 2 some 3 hrs for 9 holes!

Both groups in front of us playong from the tips and barely driving 200 yrds!

Need marshalls to speed pace up, or common sense to tee of in the appropriate tee boxes

Playing ready golf would really help also!

I have played there in the past and found it to be a good place to play. My last round however was an exception. There was never a marshal on the course to speed up the play of the foursome in front of us. On the back nine we could see two open holes in front of this group. We were constantly waiting to hit, sometimes in excess of 8-10 minutes. We eventually cut the round short and left. We had paired up with 2 people we didn't know and they also left.
