Only problem I had was gps did not work so made for a tough day not knowing distance with very few markers. Only saw like 3 all day. Pace was pretty good and some bunkers can be deep. I would recommend

Unpretentious, Will offer a challenge for all golfers. A place to dial in your game. This reviewer noted that even with temperatures around 112F / 44C, no excessive heat damage to turf and greens, which is a true compliment to grounds staff.

First impression : All grass Driving range, Short game and Putting area all dry, but not dead or Yellowed out.

Six - 6 - different Tee boxes : Well kept and all set up so to challenge players with incremental difficulties. Nice option indeed.

Fairways : Well maintained, and I suspect it also reflect a bit on the regular players, very few divots to be observed.

Rough : Some deferred maintenance in form of weeds growing, yet fully acceptable, as one understands that focus is on maintaining the playable areas during extreme summer heat.

Greens : Some heat damage observed, but less than what I was expecting. Hat's off to the grounds crew !!

Service on course : All employees were courteous and very friendly, while not over the top.

Noticeable non golf activity : The golf course is located near - but not too near - a helicopter port & small aerosport airstrip, no issue with noise, rather adds to the visual experience.

I will certainly be wanting to play this course again.

I'm a California native and my friend and I had an exciting outing playing 18 holes at Boulder Creek. The courses challenged your accuracy and shot shaping skills. There were multiple dog leg holes and a number of hazards that presented excitement as well. After being familiar with this course, I can't wait to enjoy this experience again. Boulder Creek, I'll see you again..

A very pretty course. Loads of bunkers which get a bit annoying. It's not if but which trap you'll land in. Fairways are hard and short. Your drives roll forever but so do your balls roll in to bunkers. The holes are all unique and challenging. You have to really work on your course playing abilities but then some holes are just wide open green spans to give you a break. Greens are short and fairly fast but fair and readable. We booked again for the next day as we knew we could play a better game and they gave us the rate for locals. Very nice.
