I play here frequently and enjoy the friendliness of the staff and the layout and playability of the course. The course is almost always in great shape and the greens are predictable. You don't want to be above the hole on these greens.

Blue Rock Springs (West) is a favorite course; I play it every year that I visit California. The staff and crew are accommodating and friendly, the lunch is fresh and the folks are friendly. The course is an old-style course, with variants in elevation, hole placements and length of fairways. Greens are moderate in size, and some are downright tricky -- placement from the fairway can be critical. Good condition this year with all the rain, though there were some muddy spots and carts were restricted on several holes.

Course was in pretty good shape, Greens weren't to rough. Ball rolled pretty true. Sand traps need a lot of help. More like playing off concrete than out of sand. Markings on course could be much better. Not enough yardage markers to help with club selection. Definitely need a GPS unit or range finder to dial in shot distances. Hit too many over the green shots and short iron shots due to not being able to figure out the yardage very well. Could use a 200 yard post on par 5 holes to get bearings on aim.

We were a foursome that tee'd off at 3:04PM it had a good pace of play the $30.00 price tag for this late time discouraged many players. The Greens were good there are still some soft spots in the fairways it was a 90 Degrees but should have been cart paths only. On the back nine we started to see players going around jumping holes, playing music loud, and then we had a 5 some show up in front us on 14 and it killed the pace a Marshall showed up and told us there was 32 minutes left to play we directed him to the group in front of us. They over book this place and have poor management they make excuses and have dead carts all over the course very unorganized mediocre at best.

We played the West Course. The course itself was challenging and beautiful! However, the course management was terrible. They had us tee off 45 minutes after our scheduled tee time. The course must have been badly overbooked because it was backed up all day. Two groups on the tee boxes waiting to tee off, one group on the fairway, and another putting on the green. It was ridiculous! Absolutely killed the flow of the game. Would love to play this course again but I doubt we will, wouldn't want to risk wasting our time and money again. Also no beverage cart was in operation.

It was still muddy in some spots but still playable after the rain overnight. This is a nice course and would play again. I'm sure it has dried out nicely by now.

We play this course 3 or 4 times a year. It is not a fancy course as far as amenities go but the course itself is fun and challenging. It is was still muddy in many spots so only 3 stars on that. Lots of up and down holes make it challenging and provide some great views. Greens are in good shape and were running fast today- not always the case. A very good value at $34 for a Sunday.

The West course was in great shape even after the rain. It's a great course with a variety of terrain, moderate elevation changes, some nice views. Fairways are generally forgiving and wide, with mature trees lining the edges. Greens were fast, some difficult sloping greens. Good amount of bunkers protecting the greens which had plenty of good sand. Staff at the course pro shop and cafe were awesome. Will definitely be back to play again and try the east course. Especially given the very reasonable prices, this course is great.

Played from noon, pace a little slow, great condition for the season, very friendly staff, parking could be a problem but I was lucky to find a spot closer to the club house.

Lay out a little strange but works for the space (west course)

Just wanted to say that the bunkers were in fantastic condition. The sand was perfect and they were well taken maintained. Perfectly raked in every way. Hard to believe that they could be so nice considering all the rain lately. My hat is off to the grounds crew. Excellent Job!

I got a great base green fee of $17 for 18 holes on a wet, cold Sunday afternoon around 12:15 PM. Walked right on and golfed by myself. The course is still very wet and I would not recommend play until things start drying out. In the last 2 weeks I have golfed other Solano County courses including Hiddenbrooke, Cypress Lakes, and Blue Rock West. Hiddenbrooke drained the best of the three, but it's probably just too soon to get out onto these wet courses. Regardless, I quit after 9 holes at BR as the conditions were poor.
