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.

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.

Could be a good course -- with major infusion of $$ and T LC. Only good point was green conditions---nice. Rest of course: T -boxes, fairways (awful) -- Mud. Bunkers .. Mud. Overall impression: Ground Under Repair. Lift, clean, and find a place!!

Too many forced carries over water and marshes . Not a fun day!

played a friday mid afternoon round in 3 hours. That solves a lot of problems. The course is sloppy tee to green...a lot of bare spots, thin grass and over watering...but the greens were in pretty good shape and the course has more hole character than the usual delta course. Par 5's are all birdie holes and good drives puts red numbers in play at nearly every par 4. I know there was a cart girls out there...but we never saw her.

This course clearly had promise at one point in it’s history . It’s a classic layout found in most resort communities but whoever he current ownership is really needs to invest in drainage and fairway improvement. The greens were super slow and poorly maintained . This could be a great track but it only cost 17$ on a hot deal and that’s all it was worth. Too bad but I’d go back just to have a place to hack around and work on stuff. I still shot a good score so I have some good feelings about the place. The staff was also super courteous and nice.

Years of poor management are hard to hide. Even with revenue issues there is NO excuse for large bare patches in the middle of fairways. Does any of the management team ever go out and look at the coarse? Is it acceptable to have dirt fairways? The weeds have trouble growing. Does anyone know how to fix/adjust sprinklers?? Where there was once rough on the sides of the fairways is now All hardpan...The greens were so bumpy I could see the group in front of us, their putts hopping around on the green from 165 yards away on a par 3. Very disappointed. Sad to see. I would pay twice what I paid if you kept up the coarse.
