The course has never been well maintained. The fairways have now become rock hard dirt. I'm sure someone will argue something about a recent water main but it was terrible long before that. The thing is if the course was cared for like some of the more elite courses in the area it would be great. It's a difficult course to begin with and the overgrowth and everything else makes it a place not worth visiting.

I've played here twice and both times the greens have been in atrocious conditions. Bunkers have water and wet sand in them, parts of the fairway are mostly dirt, and there is just a lack of overall attention on to maintenance on this course. Not worth the money or time to play here. Honestly adds a stroke or two to your regular game just because of how bad it is.

The course was ok it's getting better from last time I played because thy started to water the fairways again. I would give it another week or two to let the turf grass grow in a bit more.

Whoever owns this course has let it just go down the drain. The fairways are in terrible conditions. Tee boxes are all dry and beat up as well. Last time I'm playing here. Don't waste your money unless you're a 20 handicap and just want to hack it up.

Absolutely beautiful golf course in excellent condition. We were allowed to go out as a two and so we're several others, however the pace of play was greatly very poor and frustrating. I understand many things affect pace-of-play so it could have just been a bad time to play. In any case, I highly recommend this course.

This course lost access to water because of a main pipe breaking. Therefore, at the moment, the fairways are in terrible shape. The greens are still in decent shape because they were able to water it utilizing their ponds. It will take several months for this course to recover.

As an avid golfer and someone who plays 2 times per week, this is by far the worst course I've played on 2 years. If you enjoy tee'ing off into a field of corn, this is the course for you!

Spectacular views of dead grass and un-clumped dirt. This course really allows you to play your bump and run game and impersonate your best Ben Hogan, great for the golfer who tops and blades all his approach shots.

This course is equivalent to how a much a frat boy is dehydrated on a Saturday morning. If you like golf at all, don't come here.

Although you the price paid can not be beat...

The course fairways are in bad shape. An old friend of mine titled this "The Mountain Goat" course and for good reason. Almost every fairway lie is uphill or downhill. This can be overcome for sure, when the course is watered properly to eliminate a hard as a rock lie, or minimize the ground cracking. Never seen it this bad and the starter did mention there was a problem with the watering system before hitting off the first tee. Just wish this would have been communicated properly before paying for the round, either on the phone when I called ahead or at the the pro shop.

I have second thoughts on ever playing here again, it was not as fun as it used to be....

They told me the water main busted. Until they realized,it was too late! The whole course was yellow. Greens were not bad. I love the layout. Some holes were unfair due to the dry conditions. All in all it was a nice course with plenty of great views and great holes !!

Played this course 7/7/2017.

Santa Clara Water District no longer provides water and the course is in unplayable condition. Fariways are yellow, and ground is dirt/cracked. Very easy to lose your ball as it bounces around (even on fairways).

Would recommend waiting till they figure out their water system before playing..

The fairways haven't been watered for awhile, Golf Now did not mention this, and yet regular rates were charged. I've played this course when the motto was "brown is the new green" due to the drought, but the course still played fair. If you play with these conditions, you might as well go to Golfland down the road! When trying to go uphill on the difficult 8th hole, I saw my ball roll....and roll...and roll down the hill because I happened to catch a tree branch. Full rates on Golfland conditions? Get your act together Summitpointe!

Broken water main prevented watering the course for several months. As a result, course looked horrible, which took away greatly from overall experience. Cannot recommend this course until it has had ample time to recover and regrow.

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.
