Good Layout but subpar hazards

Course layout is great but the bunkers are in terrible state. Most of the bunkers have been under construction for a very long time. This could be a gem of a course if the bunkers were in good shape.

Golf & beer, need I say more

Just the idea of a golf course and a brewery together is perfect. That said, it’s even better when the course is fun and the beer is good. Canyon Lakes was totally worth it. The staff were some of the nicest people I’ve met at a golf course. The course itself was fun, forgiving, but also had very challenging greens. Yes, the sand traps are in rough shape. Hey nothing is perfect. Also beer at the brewery was very good. Overall it’s definitely worth your while to play at this course. This is my first time playing here, but it won’t be my last

Target Golf, Country Club Feel

Favorite aspect was the greens; fast and consistent!
Least favorite aspect was the bunkers; some were bone dry or crusty.
Course was playing soft, very well irrigated, so much so that some of the rough near cart paths was muddy. But it's better than the last couple years when everywhere here was too dry and almost impossible to play. They had lost the course when it was firm so I'm glad they're controlling it now. More playable now, though you'll still have shots that take weird bounces and leave you scratching your head

Best public greens in contra costa

Enjoy this course a lot. it's a players course with narrow fairways and undulating greens. Can play this course without driver and shoot a quality score. I recommend it to anyone in the area. Only downside is no driving range but there is. Practice net to warm up in. So come prepared and don't except to dial your game in on the morning of .... should of done that all year.

Constant improvement shows

Quick (right at 4 hours) round on a course that had money being spent on it.
Sand traps still suck as their hard dirt.

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.

Terrible layout

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.
