If you get a hot deal and you just want to play 9 on an average course this course may be worth it, but there are plenty of local courses that are a better value, especially considering DH’s shaggy and poorly maintaimed greens and fairways. The attached clubhouse is nice and new, but the food there is not very good and on the more costly side.

The course has a lot of potential, location wise it's perfect, bear almost anywhere. It's in a bustling city that has a big numbers of golf enthusiast. But to keep them , this. Purse needs a lot of upkeeping to do. The layout isn't that bad for a 9 hole golf course and one thing I like the most should I say is it's walkability. Distance between holes are relatively short and the terrain is mostly flat though there are some andilatiobs in some. Hopefully after they are done with the new clubhouse, they'll focus on improving the course next. It has a huge crowd gathering potential.

Course is not well kept. There are weeds growing in the tee boxes, divots are not fixed all over the course, and pricey for the quality of the golf course. Alright course to play a quick round of golf.

A solid nine holes but watch the heat-- I played in the middle of the day with temperatures pushing 104. Not a good idea. And I walked it. If it's hot be sure to take a cart and lots of liquids. The only difficulty I had was in the bunkers which were pretty crusty. Though the course was a bit dried out the greens played soft. A fun course which I recommend.

This course looks to be making a turn for the better heading into Spring/Summer. It's gotten plenty of water over the previous months and is a beautiful vibrant green. The course also offers some nice views of Mt. Diablo from a few different holes.

This is a municipal course so don't expect pristine tee boxes, but the fairways are in good shape. Greens are a little on the slower side, but have improved quite a bit in terms of over quality since the last time I played the course. One thing that still needs major improvement is the bunkers. A lot of fairway and greenside bunkers are more like hard dirt rather then sand.

Pace of play is normally excellent on this course, especially if you can get out on weekdays. We played as a 2-some and never had to wait more then a couple of minutes on a tee box.

Other then the long par-5 8th hole, this isn't really a course you need to bring out the driver much. Mostly shorter par 4's and par 3's. Good course to work on your iron game and have-a-go at driving a couple 4's if you'd like.

They're currently re-doing the clubhouse so they have a temporary setup for their restaurant/bar and the pro shop but the remodel (I'd assume to open later this summer) looks like it will be a big upgrade from their old facilities.

The best deal on this course hands-down is that you can play it for $10 on weekdays at select times through Golf Now. If you can get this course on a hot deal time, it is well worth the price.

Course is in great shape & had a great pace of play! The only downside is the restaurant/bar is under renovation (and looks to be great when done!), so food truck is your only option for now.

We walked 9 holes. Weather was warm with a

breeze. Course plays well, some rough spots.

We walked. Hole 2 and Hole 8 are uphill, rest has

a slight grade and was overall very walkable. The

9 holes took around 2 hours.

Course is walkable but can be long for some. Greens are in good shape and fairways are maintained. Sand traps are unplayable most of the time. Course is worth paying for when you want to get a quick round in.

This course has character and challenges the player to make shots. Lots of bunkers guard reachable par 4's. Great place to stay sharp. The guy in the clubhouse is always friendly and helpful. The course has nice views and the greens present challenges as well.

The staff was great in the shop and at the restaurant. I had some food while waiting for my tee time and it was excellent. We were never slowed down on the course and never felt like we were being rushed from people behind us. There is a great variety of layouts and distances on each hole so you get a lot of practice. I will definitely play here many times in the future.
