Excellent Fathers Day Gift
Sent my father and brother to play since they really enjoy it, they said that it’s the best course they’ve played. They said the marshalls were attentive and friendly. Loved that there was a brewery.
If you enjoy driving your cart on city streets, endless rows of houses, and tricked out holes mikes apart with no rhythm or flow to the course, then you will have a good time. I hated it.
Elderly backed up
There’s no Marshall and no drink cart but I played on a Monday so typically they don’t have a drink cart. Got through 14 holes no problem but then gave up when we ran into a bunch of elderly that were taking 20 min per hole. Some holes were under construction and several sand traps have no sand.
Jewel in the south
Amazing layout. Very challenging course. Loved the tight fairways and well groomed greens.
A shot makers course. Definitely be back when we are allowed on the fairways with the carts.
Too wet this time around.
Course in pretty good shape considering recent rains. Front nine good pace, back nine came to a halt. Frustrating. Slowdown actually started on hole number #7, and dragged remainder of round.
I like playing at Canyon Lakes. The holes are fun and challenging and there are some great views too. The course still hasn’t completely dried out from the extraordinary rains we had. That being said, only one hole was cart path only and a few others where there were no carts allowed. That being said, the course was beat up in a few areas and the tee boxes need some love (most are very uneven). For not looking Preston’s, the greens sure rolled nice. Pace of play was amazing and the round was definitely fun. After the round we had lunch and sat on the patio. Food and in house adult sodas were quite good!
I was disappointed with the conditions of this course and pace of play. Granted it does have some great views and fun hole set ups, but for the price it’s not worth just that. Greens were plugged and was not notified before playing. There were also several dirt patches throughout the course including near or on fairway. I was expecting more from my local San Ramon course.
After the rain conditions
Surprisingly the course was in good condition after a few days of rain. It looks like they have recently remodel the greens and fixed the tee boxes. They also may have done some bunker renovation but could not tell because many were filled with water. The fairways was also a surprise because I was told they did not have grass but with the recent rain it may have finally helped them out. I would play this course again because I love the narrow layout. Would like them to re do some of their par 3 as it’s not the normal layout. Your hitting uphill at times instead of level or down hill. Again will play again when it’s not cart path only. Value is the norm in these area. $$-$$$
Three star course is Five star enjoyment
There stars up to four stars as my rating, but 5 stars for fun. Always enjoy playing here. Never a dull moment and never know when to keep the lid on. Being aggressive won’t pay off here. Some greens are straightforward, others are downright difficult. Love the par 5. Fast and firm, or a little softer, you will get some bang for buck out here. Front nine very conventional with some tricky plays... Back nine has the extra par 3 all worthy golf holes, and Holes 14-18 are awesome.
More Canyon Than Lakes
Been about twenty years since played here. It was ok then. Don’t really remember much and it was just ok.
Today, the course showed character and promise. Greens were fast and dry(expecting rain tomorrow so jets turned off I imagine). Really fun track. Be careful and place ball well or with dry conditions in general as ball runs out there.
Par 5 are all good. Long hitter found it hard to get home in two. Par three 5 of them will offer a bit of a challenge. Par 4 if you can see em attack em, those you can’t see attack with caution.
In all loved it here and will be back. For what it’s worth the par 3 out here are better than Dublin ranch, the par 5 are WAY better, and the par four are ok on both except here two or three are harder for sure. Both are short courses but Canyon Lakes stands out as a real 18 hole course. Dublin Ranch slows it down a little compared to here...feels like a executive course out in Dublin. The Bridges that’s another situation... pretty good there too.
Oh and a bar that looks nice , overlooks the course, will be back for that next time!
