Warning

The course takes COVID-19 serious. That's a good thing. However, all the food services, driving range, and pro shop are closed. You can't get into the parking lot until 20 minutes before your tee time. So, you've been warned.

The course setting is beautiful - all the holes surrounded by vines. If you like 100' drops from the tee, you'll like this place as there's quite a few.

I have two problems with the place. The greens are all interestingly flat and inconsistent. One fast, the next slow. Also, some of them had something wrong and the ball bounces as much as rolls. The second problem is the price. It's just not worth $120.

Great Course, great conditions

The course and staff were great and pace of play was nice, 3 1/2 hours... live that! They have extra precautions for Covid-19 but other than the driving range being closed, no big issues.

Great course

Firstly, I called around 11:00am to verify that the course was open and confirmed my tee time booking at 2:45pm. I was informed that my name was on the tee sheet; secondly, upon arrival, the person checking-in golfers at the gate stated that my name was not on the sheet. I waited at the gate for several minutes before I was allowed to enter and was in formed to talk to the pro shop about my tee time confirmation; Thirdly, I talked to the pro shop assistant and had shown him the tee time confirmation that I received from Golfnow. The pro shop assistant wanted to verify the amount of payment, for whatever reason. After passing all these check-points, I was given a cart. Shortly there after, I began my round. The course has excellent views. The tee box and fairways were in great shape for summer conditions. The greens appeared freshly sanded which was a disappointment. I was prepared and had brought my own water. The course did offer a bottle of water. But I would recommend bring your own, especially during the hot summer days. All-n-all, I had a good experience but don’t understand how the confusion occurred since I called and was confirmed; unless my name was deleted in the confirmation process.

Greens on the course were covered in sand, it would have been nice to know that ahead of time from Wente or from GolfNow. Not worth the full price given those conditions. Everywhere else on the course besides the sanded greens were in great shape.

Still one of the best, with fastest greens

Beautiful course, still as stunning as it was my first time here. Greens were brutally fast for me, having been out of the game in recent months. Course is manicured and in great condition for this time of year... Highly recommended

Course conditions

The Course at Wente is the BEST non-private golf course in N. California. Even better than most private courses in area. I would highly recommend this golf course.

One of the best courses I have ever played

I have been wanting to play this course for a very long time, and today, a weekday at noon, the price was right. Everything about this course is superb, including the course layout, attention to every detail of maintenance on this course, and a sense of friendliness and genuine care from all of the staff members.
