Teaching my wife how to play, not just a chip and putt, there are two par 4's. Open and simple layout. Hidden gem for beginners, or if you want to work on your short iron play.

Great course for a quick 9. Par 30 course is fun and great for kids, so you must be patient at times. Only issue I had was geese feces at many areas and sand traps (the few) are unplayable. Other than that, I really enjoy playing in this course!

Nice flat 9 hole course with a couple of holes you can actually use driver (under 230yds). Walked it and pace of play was great. I'm an intermediate golfer (13 handicap) and I was golfing with a (really) beginner friend and we didn't hold up the experienced foursome behind us. For being in the middle of the Pleasanton horse track (at the fairgrounds), the fairways are relatively generous and greens were in good order. Perfect place to get in a quick 9 holes and use most of your bag. Good place or beginners to learn and families to share the game with each other. I usually play Mare Island, Blue Rock, Cypress Lakes, Chardonnay, Eagle Vines and Napa/JFK... I plan on coming back to this nice 9 hole.

Played here with my 2 kids third time now, with GolfNow booking. It's nice for the whole family with beginner players. It's safe, good paced, fun. Smaller greens also challenge intermediate players to hit good iron shots. Three par 4's also give players to try their drivers while demanding accuracy. The lake in the middle gave all a feel of water hazard, especially beginners.

This course is very affordable and well-suited for beginners and high-handicappers. The layout is flat, easy to walk, has elevated greens and is relatively short with 6 par-3's. My wife and I are high handicappers and play routinely mid-week to work on improving our iron shots and short game. One pond on the course comes into play on holes 7 & 8 and the elevated, small greens require high approach shots to hold the ball on the greens. Pace of play is usually 75-90 minutes and always a good time.
