Nice simple course, not very challenging. Very annoying loud noise throughout the back 9. It seems there's a venue up in the mountains with very loud speakers.

The course was running late. Our tee time was at 822 and did not tee off until 847. We had to wait on everything hole.

One of the best aspects of this course is the setting. Tucked up in the hills east of Milpitas, you're surrounded by beautiful hills, no homes next to the course, peace & quiet, and even para-gliders in the distance! Makes it hard to remember that Silicon Valley and the rest of the hustle and bustle of the Bay Area are just 15 minutes away, but makes it so easy to focus on enjoying a round of golf!

I never have a bad time at this course it just beats me up now the pricing I put three the reason why because you can play other courses for the same amount of price and it's a little bit longer but besides that the course was kept well very well greens were very receptive there a little wet in the morning but they'd read out in the afternoon and the ball start of the Roll nice time I felt like I cheated myself because I opted for a cart when I could have walked the curse I got lazy I lost two clubs guess what I found them and they brought them to me so that's a plus plus you know when you lose some clubs early in the round it could just bust your bubble and for them to have it at the end of the night was a great great great pick me up so once again I recommend this course four and a half Stars

I played this course for the first time with a friend yesterday. While the cost was a bit more than I expected, I was impressed with the course. Overall, it's fairly well kept and shows minimal wear even through it was quite busy. The holes are nicely laid out and interesting. Despite it being mid day on a sunny Saturday, the pace of play was quite good. We finished in about 4 hours despite a 15 minute delay on the 9th hole. I look forward to playing this course again.

Decent course. Probably the most wind I've ever played in. Course was in good shape. Staff was friendly. A little overpriced for what it is but a good all around experience.

I really like this course and I play it often but always one of the earliest groups out on a weekend morning.

Going at 1:30PM on a Sunday almost made me feel I would never return. The pace of play was not glacial, more like continental drift ...it crawled on at a pace that would have embarrassed a snail. By the time our 3 got to the par 3 seventh there were 3 groups on that hole. We made the 4th. I don't know all the reasons why but Sunday afternoons will not be my golf time anytime soon.
