Sunnyvale is a good public course. It is not difficult but fun.The course is in good condition for a public course. The staff is excellent and the happy hour is fabulous. The only drawback was play was slow. It took 4.5 hours to play.

Fairway, sand bunkers, and greens were in great shape! What's missing is the water in the hazards. Without the water, it's not as picturesque. And, not as intimidating! Course layout is nice, with several doglegs and not just boring straight fairways. Course is flat and hence, walkable...but we opted for the cart. Weather was pleasant even in November at Sunnyvale. We'll definitely try to play here again before the year is over.

It’s a great value for a “muni”... I played twilight round on a Sunday for $32... The two Par 5’s are legit... The shortest Par 3 is 160 yards over a water hazard... A few gimmicky holes but nothing that will kill you... Greens are typically in good shape with varying sizes...

The greens were aerated, the tee boxes were in horrible shape, fairways were in below average condition and amenities were non-existent. Pace of play would have been fine but they gave us a single that took five to ten minutes on every swing and putt which made it very painful. I haven't played there in about a year and they have really let the course and facilities go unfortunately.

First 9 holes took 3 hours. Called office after two holes took 40 minutes. Nothing was done. No bathrooms on course. Don't come back to the clubhouse until the 14th hole. Doesn't really matter, the restaurant is closed and the pro shop only has a soda machine. Oh and that's broken. At the 18th they asked for the cart back since it was dusk (really I have to carry my stuff back to the car?).

I mentioned some of the complaints to the lady and she said next time I'm there (not happening) that I should call the office so they could send someone out. As i mentioned before we had and absolutely nothing happened as a result the first time.

Oh and the course is right next the the highway. Had to yell to my playing partners to communicate anything.

Course conditions are pretty meh. Lots of hard pack around the greens. All the ponds are dry which I do understand.

This used to be my home course, not anymore. The water hazards are dry eyesores, the fairways are 30 percent dirt, the snack shop has been closed for years. The worst condition I have seen the course in. Why can't someone turn on the sprinklers, fill up the ponds and bring this course back? We just had an epic rainy season, the drought is over, what gives?
