First timer

A very interesting course but a difficult one, with many blind shots and elevation changes. The greens were exceptional.

Had a great time

Challenging layout quite a few blind shots. Par 3s were challenging with the wind but I enjoyed every bit of it. And we had a good time with the group that played with us. I will definitely be back...ohh by the way the food was really good at the turn, but call in and order at the 7th hole so its ready by the time you get there

Course improvements coming

Love this track even as much as the bridges next door. Sure no range but there is a net to get lose and if you truly need range drive 4 minutes to the bridges up the road and swing on back. Classic course with blind shots, narrow fairways, raised greens, and undulations. The course is in the process of fixing a few bunkers and once those are in, the course will be perfect. Until then play the bunkers like any course during these times..... ground under repair.

Accommodations

The Course is extremely poorly prepared for players with disabilities. Disabled people should be allowed to pick up their bags from their cars or otherwise be driven by staff from their cars to the cart area.
None of the water stations had coolers with water on a mid nineties Fahrenheit day.

Probably the last time I’d play here

So I arrive and the three some that booked to leave the empty single spot open was apparently actually a 4 some for a group of members of the course. I don’t go play a round of golf to play solo. But that’s how it played out. 4 members pushed me out to play as a single and the twosome who were also members with whom I may have been paired up with apparently no showed.

Course condition was just okay. Obviously with the SIP, there was time for fairways and greens to recover. But the sand traps and many areas around the greens looked like a scene from I AM LEGEND if there was a golf course scene in the movie.

The only bright spot to this golf course was the Marshall. Such a good dude and made his rounds to do what he could to accommodate all players in the field.

There are plenty of golf courses in the Bay Area... if you have to choose, you can pass up on this place.

Country Club Feel

This course meanders around this Canyon Lakes development and so has a country club type of layout with homes lining a fair number of holes. The greens were true and putts rolled well. Tee boxes needs improvement as a number of them were patchy and unkempt.
Overall, this course was close to home and great value at $34 including cart.

Fairways and greens in great shape. Course knowledge helps on some holes. Some tee boxes not level. I have no real complaints course was in good shape.greens medium speed but rolled true. The only issue I had was at the turn I could not buy a Gatorade. Stood at the counter for a few minutes and nobody there. We teed off on time and played in 3 and a half hours. I will return.

Great to be back out!

My first post-COVID round. Great to be out. The course was in decent condition and was playing well. The noodle in the hole was easy to play with.

Much Improved / Fun Round

I last played here about 1 1/2 years ago and swore I wouldn’t play it again, the conditions were terrible. After reading some recent reviews I reluctantly decided to give it another try. Glad I did! The conditions overall were pretty good, they are doing work on the bunkers, so a few of them are ground under repair but I can live with that. They are trying to make it a better experience and you can tell they are working on it. The rest the course was in great shape, fairways were nice, greens were fast and the staff was very pleasant. I live so close to this course and was sad that it was in terrible condition previously. I’ll be back!

Been playing this course for the last 10-15 years. It is definitely in the best condition I have ever seen. Bunkers are much better with some needing more work and some ground under repair but overall the bunkers are the best I’ve seen there. Ironically I only saw one today, the 15th, one which had nice fluffy sand. Greens were smoothest and fastest I’ve seen as well. Fairways pretty darn good too. Staff was nice, especially the lady at the pro shop checking us in. Course is sneaky tough. Management needs to just finish the rest of the bunkers and keep the greens and fairways the way they are and this will be a course I come to more often than I do. Pleasantly surprised at the improvements. I know it takes time and money but Quality wins every time.
