Nice greens. Fairways are mostly green (I suppose the rains have made a difference), always feels long to me. This is one course where I don't do that good (as a 16 handicap). DC tends to be charging a little more than the other area courses. But not this time as it is a Tuesday afternoon in autumn and GolfNow had a hot deal the night before I played.

Booked a tee time for 11:04, didn't get out till 11:44. The lady in the pro shop advised us that there is a 30 minute window of when you book a tee time. I've used golf now forever and have never heard of this. Is this something new?

Please do a better job at letting online users know that the price paid at the course is either walking or riding. It's frustrating to get to the course thinking you are paying one price only to find out it's much higher with riding vs. walking, Consumers pay a fee for your service; please make it clear what is to be paid to the course.

And on another note; I played the previous weekend at Lone Tree; fortunately the course was nice enough to let me know the price on GolfNow was more than a promotional rate they had. It saved me $24 dollars; and the course didn't have to do that. Why then should I pay for your service if it's inaccurate? Try harder!

We played the back 9 holes twice because the front 9 were being aerated and they were adding mulch to the fairways. Played 18 holes in 2 hours and 35 minutes!! Price was great. I had fun!!

I play lots of golf in this general area and I am of firm belief that Diablo Creek is the best value. The tee boxes, fairways and greens are all in good shape. Yes, there are a few spots here and there that need some TLC, but overall the fairways provide good lies and greens run smooth.

Wind can create more of a challenge on the front as it is more exposed - especially on the lengthy 4th hole. The back 9 provides more trees for protection.

A major caveat for 1st timers coming out there is that the white tees play 6400 yds, so don't just step up to the whites and think it's like most courses. There is a gold set that plays 6000.

Fairways are narrow and if you find yourself above the hole expect a tough putt.

I paid $44 for green fee, cart and lunch (drink not included) which is a great deal.

We always enjoy Diablo Creek as its usually in better condition than many of the other daily fee courses---and even some of the area's private courses. The layout is long and flat on most holes, but lots of trees line the fairways so you need to keep your tee shots in the fairways if you hope to score pars/birdies---or even bogies sometimes! The course can sometimes experience slower play on weekends but what else is new for daily fee courses?! Our round today, however, was completed in four hours with little if any waiting. Afterwards, you can grab some grub and grog at Legends, the on-site restaurant. The food and drink are always good with happy hour starting at 4pm most days.

I play here a few times a month and I enjoy this course. Today was an outlier as the wind blew moderately across the course which I feel is the worst kind. Over the years though I do not recall wind issues at DC. The big challenge this day was that we followed a senior tournament, pushing the round to 5 1/2 hours! I can attest to the fact that on weekdays the course plays under 5 hours, so advice is do not play there mornings on Mondays.

I paid $44 for golf, cart, an lunch through GolfNow. Usual rates with cart are mid $40 range, but from tee to green the course is in good shape.

Also be aware that white tees play 6200-6400 yds.

This course is well maintained. It has a nice putting green and ok driving range, we played after work for $25 and finished in about 3 hours. Theres a cool little bar to grab a drink after and the staff is helpful. If I had one suggestion it would be a drink cart. Overall this is a great place to play for the $.

For some reason it seems this course is not with the same page if you book using golf now. Sometimes there will be a conflict with time and this time we had issue with prices.

With golf now it was $41 but when we went to pay at the club house they charged $55 ( included $5 deposit for cart key)

Overall its a decent place to play golf and they maintain the course well

Tee boxes were some of the best I've seen in the North Bay. Fairways were in very good condition - close cut, minimal leaf litter and only an occasional bare or muddy spot. Rough was cut to 2-3 inches, with none of the clover and weeds that make finding a ball difficult. Greens were the best I've played this year in the North Bay public courses, however, too many had grass clippings and other debris left from the day's mowing. Two greens had some minor turf damage off to one side, but all the greens were tightly cut, smooth and rolled true. Bunkers were dry, but offered only the very thin sand layer we are accustomed to in this area. The course layout offered a few challenges, like the 600yd par 5, the sneaky creek in front of the #10 green and a couple of tiered/mounded greens, but by and large it was not overly challenging. It was very well signed, making it easy to get from green-to-tee. The service was prompt and the staff was helpful enough. The driving range is one of the better in the North Bay (balls in good shape, well flagged, long, flat). It is also long enough to accommodate grass tees in place of the very badly worn mats. The putting/chipping area is large. There is no place to practice pitching or sand play. I look forward to going back, but I will wait for a good rate.

Rode as a two-some behind a walking/carrying 4-some who should have been on an East Bay Parks trail instead of playing golf. They fell a hole and a half behind while taking post-shot practice swings and 2 minute 2 feet putts. No marshalls on the course. Course was soggy. I usually enjoy playing it, but not yesterday
