Hidden gem. Felt like I was playing a mountain course with all the pine trees.

Improve maintenance

Always liked the challenging layout, but condition is poor. If they do not spend some serious money on course maintenance, they run the risk of losing it. Got a discounted rate on the weekend, so not complaining much, but bunkers, greens, tee boxes all need upgrades. I know the golf biz is really tough nowadays, but this will only get worse if things don't change.

Nice Day

Got there early, some groups hadnt checked in yet they got me right out. Every time I play here it gets better and better. They are working on it. The course is in great shape, greens also nice and rolling well. The more I play here the more I appreciate the architecture..it is a real tight course in places. Will be back again.

Classic Course and Still Challenging

Canyon Lakes is great. Glad to see new management is stepping it up in the hospitality department. Course is in good shape and will test players of multiple skill levels. A great value.

First round at Canyon Lakes

I had a nice round at CL. Some of the traps need some TLC. Lots of ground under repair traps but overall the course is short but challenging. The greens were in great shape and like most courses in this area the traps need lots of sand.

I was very pleasantly surprised with the condition of the course. The greens were in great shape and very smooth. A tough but fair course, and I would certainly recommend it.

Good layout terrible two holes and bunkers

Overall I like this golf course but don’t think it’s worthy the money. It’s very close to my home but I’d always skipped playing here. The layout is pretty solid with two glaring issues.

There are two holes on the front that are terrible because of geese poop. I’ve never seen more geese poops on holes 4 and 5 than anywhere else in my entire life. Just disgusting.

Second problem is the bunkers. On almost every hole they have bunkers that they’ve let die. Some look like they might eventually refill. Others are just weeds.

With some minor changes this would be a great course. But I won’t pay that money again when I can go to Calippe or poppy ridge for 10-15 more.

You don't think it worth the money! Are you kidding this is the best deal in the east bay.

Course is in great shape, green are great.

Yes bunkers need work but you are not paying 150 a round but one third of that.

This is the best deal for a quality course unless you fly to Thailand.
