First time playing here. Played twilight so zero crowds.

The practice facility is awesome. Two teirs. Only trackman in south bay (from what I hear, but I know golfsmith in San Jose has them too). The pro shop is pretty well stocked for just a golf course pro shop, but when you have mega stores like Golfsmith just a 10 min drive away I don't know why you'd come here for clubs unless you are either getting a discount or you need to buy one for your round.

The restaurant staff was very friendly. The Turkey Chili behind the bar was amazing. I had two servings. And I don't like chili if that means anything.

For a rainy day and during a drought year the course was in much better condition than other courses in the area. There were plenty of puddles on the fairway but that just means there's good undulations in the fairway and its not as "flat" as other muni courses. The greens are well kept.

Bottom line if you can get a twilight rate this course is well worth it. I hear the course charges in the 60's for weekend peak hours. To be honest, that's a bit much for a municipal course. That being said, this course is miles better than other municipal courses in terms of staff friendliness, pro shop stock, course condition and layout, and practice facilities. They could name this course a fancy name and totally get away with it. Long story short, this course is worth the money even on peak hours. Other than the name itself, its anything but a municipal course.

I'll be back here soon.

Course is in decent shape and gets tons of play. Play is slow and course isn't worth the wait. It gets play because there isn't much around this area. There isn't a memorable hole on the course. I get invited to a tournament here every year and am always discouraged from returning. If you want to shoot a score way below your handicap, this is the place for you.

This is a nice course, set up well for both novice, and experienced golfers. Most hole have a reasonable amount of fairway to work in, and usually you would get into too much trouble with an errant shot. Maintained fairly well, no major issues. A fun course to play, nothing too special, but a good experience every time out!
