Greens are pure

Beautiful greens! From Tee-box to green. You can see the gorgeous landscape with deer wondering. Beautiful homes along most of the course, far enough away from the fairways. True greens to put your putting skills to the test. Need to have your A game to score good. Recommend this to Amateur golfers or more experienced players. Enjoy playing here whenever I can. Last time I played there, my friend Larry has never played it. Quote: Larry comment on ever hole was: this is the most beautiful course ever..

Rude staff

Course seems like it could be really great. Just got finished golfing there and they booked a 4 pack in front of us, then myself which was two and then a single behind us with a four behind them. So I don't mind waiting and we are friendly so we ended up teaming up with single behind us to help speed things up. Well the course referee named joe supposedly saw my partner getting his ball out of brush while waiting for the players in front of us to get out of range so he came down screaming using f word telling usthat we are holding up everyone, mind you we could not hit cause the people in front of us. Then when we explain he proceeds to argue and and yell. Anyways our 18 hole game ended at nine because it ruined the day. Management didn't really seem to care. Don't waste money. Saddle creek always seems polite and nice.

A scenic neighborhood course at the foot of the Sierras

For a course that winds through an sprawling neighborhood, Greenhorn Creek sure is scenic and pleasantly peaceful.
There are some truly remote spots where there are no houses to interrupt the stunning views of the foothills of the Sierras - notably the par 3s at 13 and 15.
The front side is great for scoring. Two of the three par 5s - holes 4 and 7 - are short from the blues (both under 481 yards) and ripe for eagles and birdies. The fairways shrink on the tighter, more demanding back nine.
The restaurant in the clubhouse is excellent, so stop for a bite after the round. The prime rib special and live music packs in the crowds for a nice ambiance on the weekends.

Great course.

The course was beautiful and challenging, fairways pretty narrow (which I like).
Had a great time, was worth the two hour ride from Woodland.

A real hidden gem.

The course itself is very well maintained, and fairly challenging. Unlike other golf communities, the fairways are not completely surrounded by homes, instead there is a very spacious feel throughout the entire course. Wide fairways lead your eyes to a beautiful mountain backdrop, and the greens are in near perfect condition. It's very evident that the members who play frequently take a lot of pride in keeping their course pristine. My only recommendation to someone who has never played, is to play when the temperature is below 80. The mountains shield you from the wind, but the heat can quickly overwhelm older players without a constant breeze. Its definitely going to be my preferred fall time course.

Fairways and greens still recovering from aeration maintenance.

The overall layout of the golf course is interesting with dogleg left and right holes with elevation changes. I could not get a sense of the true conditions of the course since it was still recovering from aeration maintenance from 3 1/2 weeks prior. Pro shop staff was friendly.

Great course and well layed out

Long travel from Bay Area but worth it if you can stay overnight. Course was not busy after noon so there was no pressure from other golfers. Back 9 was definitely harder than the front. Weather was perfect and really enjoyed this course. Condition was excellent.
