Fun course - good play, fast greens

Playing the last likely day heading into winter. Course in decent shape for time of year (lack rain/water). Greens a little tough - hard to stop.

Classic Course

I always enjoy playing auburn valley. It’s such a classic course with a fun layout. It’s challenging but fun. Today the greens were really fast but rolled great. So that was an extra challenge on already tough greens.

Descent course

Descent course, good peace. Score cards are a joke. Just poorly printed, with no hole layouts, hard to read.. Distance marks to the hole are on the ground so make sure you check that (no poles on the side).

Nice Track, but...

Auburn Valley is an enjoyable, challenging course. Conditions are standard for typical munis in the area. Greens are tricky and local knowledge is a good thing. They're semi-private, and upon arrival we were told that the range balls on the range were for members only, and we would have to buy range balls. Given that, the cost and the distance, next time I will pass, and select a closer, less expensive track. Want players to drive to you? Make it worth it.

Great affordable course

Course was in great condition and not too crowded. Greens were in really good shape. Best bang for your buck in the Sacramento region.

6 hour round of golf

We got to the course 30 minutes early and were told we would be teeing off 10-15 minutes later than our tee time. 40 minutes after our tee time we finally got to tee off. Apparently, there was a small tournament scheduled that was running late.

We then spent 10 minutes after every hole waiting to play the next hole. After almost 6 hours, we ended our round on the 15th hole and drove back to the club house to leave.

great course, needs some love

Great course but showing its age. Like a lot of golf facilities these days, reduced play means reduced revenue. Hope they are able to fix her up!

Auburn Valley

I believe they have had a rough time recovering from the winter storms but it looks like they are gaining on it. They should be all caught up in a couple more weeks.

Terrible service... Absolutely abysmal

We were treated so poorly today. The pro shop manager and the PGA pro were both incredibly rude. Additionally, the course was in terrible shape and the greens were absolute garbage. I would not return to this course for any reason. Take your money to The Ridge or Darkhorse once it opens back up... You’ll be much happier.
