Good day

Been awhile since I played here and the course was in very good condition and the weather was perfect. Pace of play could be better and an on-course ranger keeping people moving would be a great addition.

Positive Experience at San Geronimo

This course had been closed for a while, but has re-opened to the public. It is a fun/scenic layout with a mix of wide and narrow fairways. Course is in good condition, but the greens tend to be slow. There was no cart beverage service on the course (but water was available in coolers at several tee boxes). Never saw a marshal during the round, but we played at a 4.5 hour pace on a Saturday morning. The clubhouse staff and starter were friendly and appreciative of our business. If you can get a deal/discount for this course, I would highly recommend it. It has great potential, but all of the amenities (bar/restaurant) are not fully operational at this time. If you know that before you go, you can plan accordingly.

Nice course with two personalities

Very enjoyable course with the front nine open and relatively flat and the last nine up-and-down with some difficult approaches. Very nice mix. Easy front nine more difficult back nine.

closest course to Pt Reyes

I was expecting better all the way around. I paid $65 on GN...and was shocked by the attendee who told me that didn't include the cart. This is not noted on the site at all...so, felt like a rip off from the pro shop cashier...who frankly, didn't seem to be up on the program anyway. Not a good start. Then, the F&B is a refrigerated unit although it looks like a full bar is open and stocked. Just poor for the price. Have received much better for far less than half the price.

Onto the course. Greens in good condition...but everything else way to shaggy or browned out...including the tee boxes. Bunkers inconsistent...either fluffy or hard as a parking lot. Layout of the back 9 is fun. Lots of scoring opportunities. Layout of the front 9 seems like the course was designed by Ray Charles. We thought #9 was #2...because well, the tee box was right next to the #1 green....but no...after our tee shots we drive by a dirt path with "#2 this way" on it...so, pick up the drives and do it all over again. Front 9 is pretty simple and basic. two dramatically different 9's.

I would be willing to forgive all of this with an aerial map of the holes and course so you could figure out where to go and/or backtrack. They also need better yardage markers and signage in general and general course maintenance.

Its a pretty course, but, at $80 for a muni...makes it hard to justify. I've played Pasatiempo, Poppy, Calippe and a whole host of courses in great condition for that price or less and the rest of the experience that I've given a big fail here are perfect in comparison. I'll pass until they clean it up with folks who know something about running a golf course operation.

The Bar is open!

I play with a regular group of 10 or so different people. We love the beauty and challenge. The people who work here love the place and it shows. Jules always greets us with a smile and welcome to start our day! The bar has just finally opened and she makes it fun to hang out and have lunch and share a few stories and laughs before heading home for the day. Look forward to watching the business expand and keep the course going for a long time.

Not what she used to be!

A grand old course that needs some help.

Since reopening after the county purchase, some changes have been made that lower the quality of the experience. First, they have closed the bridge between 7 and 8 so you must drive all the way back around by the 5th tee box. Second, while it was closed, all the distance markers on the tee boxes were removed. Hard to figure distance. Lastly, at the present time, there is no bar or food!

Never a good sign at a course!

A nice atmosphere

Pleasant staff greet you in the pro shop. Great putting green and chipping practice area. Good layout. Amazing views, nature feel and decent course conditions getting better daily since the reopening. I’m a fan.

“Bare Bones”

San Geronimo feels like it’s on it's last legs. The course is a bit raggedy. There was no starter so golfers were just teeing off when they felt like it. The tees are hard pack and spotty so are the fairways. The greens were okay but a bit uneven. On the front nine a bridge was under repair and I had to haul my bags and hand cart over a barrier. People in golf carts had to drive back where they came from and take a detour. There is no clubhouse. The place has a vacant feeling to it. But the staff was extremely nice I don’t plan to go back.

Still not what it was,but working on it....

This course has great potential but they need to get a liquor license and a cook so they have food there still.Still trying to get course back to what it was and why they allow 6somes is beyond me?There is NO way this is not going to slow down pace of play which was ok the first 9 but then slowed way down when we hit the back up and they had 2 open holes in front of them.We saw them on 15 when we were on 11 …..I couldn't figure out why so many people were on the green until I watched awhile and realized why it was so backed up from that hole on.I am glad though they reopened this course it is wonderful when everything is going smoothly.I would guess in a month or so all could be back to normal and thriving

Course great holes

The course has been closed for some time. Played it around 3 weeks after it reopened. Greens are not up to par. Very mushy and sanded. The pro shop it not tell us they were sanded. The price should have been reduced. No food and beverage service. It does not tell the golfer when I booked a tee time. Should notify when book a tee time.

Welcome back San Germo!

Seeing how the course was in the brink of closing for good a few months ago, it’s in good shape considering that. The cart paths are very bumpy throughout and they currently have a bridge out between holes 7 and 8 which makes a long detour if you’re riding. But the scenery can’t be beat!

This is a Course to avoid

This course is not for any golfer looking to enjoy a round of golf. The course looked like a pasture, tall grass with many unmowned areas. The pace of play was totally unacceptable with lots of older men who seemed to have just started playing golf. The players meander around as though they want to spend the entire day out there, which they did as well as everyone who are playing behind these types of ‘non-players’. Over 20 minutes per hole resulted in a 6-hour round on a weekday! Imagine how long a weekend round would take?

A nightmare.
