We played Creekside and Hillside at Brentwood

at noon as a foursome, and it played in about

4 hours on MLK day.

Fairways were spotty with some bare spots, typical

California, greens were mowed and rolled and in

good condition.

This course is surrounded by housing, but is in

overall good condition.

Haven't played for a couple months and played the ball down when led to a couple doubles and a triple on the front nine. Somehow avoided the ruts on the back side and had a very enjoyable time. Played by myself, was let through one group and caught another group on 10. They were packing up and leaving, I didn't understand until I saw a group on 12 green who I caught up on 13 tee. How can I play 2 holes and all they did was put out. I actually joined this group when one of their people dropped out and found out the locals play different sets of nines throughout the week. The day I was there about 5 foursomes started on Hillside (my 10th hole) in front of me and made a relatively quick round slow down to molasses. After Hillside they went to Diablo but I got caught in the mess. Talking with the group I caught up to it sounded like this happens regularly. Expect to wait if you play on Mondays.

I really liked the layout, water holes, elevation changes, etc. The tee boxes and greens were good but everything in between was so neglected it was sad. Seriously, had to move the ball around on all fairways and rough to hit off of grass otherwise you are hitting off of dirt. The same traps looked interesting but it had recently rained so will give them a pass on the bunkers condition, looked like they definitely need attention as well.

I would have loved to see this course in it's prime even though it is only 17 years old, it doesn't look like anyone considered maintainence to keep it nice.

Green is a Christmas color and the greens were in very good shape which is the main thing about a course for me. Bunkers need sand though fairways and rough in pretty good condition. It would have been nice to have a food cart person go around especially at busy holiday time. Good value for the price. Their restaurant and bar is always good.

Spread out course layout with lengthy drive between some holes throughout. I wouldn't advise walking this course due to the unusual layout. The course was in great shape. The greens were fast and rolled clean. Interesting course. Definitely worth a visit if you haven't played here.

We were all very disappointed in the Brentwood course. This place used to be a jewel, well cared for & almost always in good condition. Unfortunately, it's gone down hill in a BIG way! Starting with the driving range, it is horrible!!! Nothing good about it. On the course, tee boxes were temps. shaved out of fairway in front of regular tees. Fairways were bare in a lot of areas, no grass. Lots of wet, soggy areas at tee boxes & in front of greens. The greens were in pretty good shape & fairly consistent, but that was the only thing that was so. They haven't spent a dime on course maintenance. Too bad, it used to be very nice. I would recommend that you spend your money somewhere else.

We play Brentwood's Creekside and Hillside courseat 12:00 as a foursome.

We found the pace steady, and finished in less than 4 hours.

The greens are in good condition. The fairways are spotty, typical for California. Lift clean and place. .

Overall a good experience, friendly staff.

Good value for the money.

Brentwood is a good course layout with good pricing. Make sure to bring food and drink. There is no food cart on course, nor is there a food shack at the turn (after 9 holes).

Other then the man that checks players in the 1st tee and the cart lady, the staff that I dealt with had a very poor attitude and the majority of tee's were set up in the valleys between tee boxes. I do not feel this course is worth the amount they charge and the 4 star rating is completely misleading and unwarranted.
