Rude person

I would like to say, I used to love coming to this golf course. I signed up for the California Oaks Golf club e-mails. I got a e-mail that said free sleeve of balls and 29.00 per player and Happy Presidents day play. I tried to call, nobody answers the phone, so I booked on line which was 4 dollars per player thinking, they will just change it when I get there. The lady at the front desk told me "no, no can change, you book on line". "you have to push button" there was no "button" on the phone, I played my round, and left, it may be the last time I play there. Some folks that don't care about golf or maintaining a golf course bought this place and they are driving it into the dirt. They shut down the restaurant, the door is falling of there wedding gazebo, and the course is in really bad shape, I fell bad for the people who live in the nice gated retirement community.

Unhappy golfer.

Pace of play is fantastic

Played on a Friday afternoon. Played fast.
Only issue is hole 12 should be closed. Fairway is completely washed out. Greens are slow, but in good shape. A few of the T boxes are not in a great shape. For the cost you can find better places to play

Great Course

Great course for leisure play. Has a couple Par 5s which is nice. The course also has a warm up net so you don't have to buy range balls to warm up which is a nice addition.

No, dont do it

Been playing here for 20 years. I quit about 5-6 years ago when new owners bought the course and really screwed everything up.

The positives: narrow fairways so you have to use every club in your bag. That's about it.

Negatives: for the cost, there are 7 other courses within 10 miles that are so much better, they lengthened some holes to make it look like a longer course but those holes are now just silly. Rude customer service, barely any maintenance, so any eye sores it's ridiculous.

I went and tried it last Sunday to see if it got any better, it's the worst I've seen. Stay away!!

Fun course to tune up your game

My buddy and I play here every Wednesday and usually first off. We can play a round in just under 3 hours. The course is not a well manicured golf course but we like it. This is a great course to work on your short game as many of the holes from the Tips are not too wide and makes you focus on shaping your golf shot.

Not even worth $20!

Went to go play a quick round of golf after i got off work and this course is not worth the money at all! They charge way too much to play 9 holes. The staff at the front desk is not very friendly, the greens are not trimmed at all making them very slow, and if you don't hit the fair way good luck finding your ball in the rough! Unfair tee boxes, tee boxes very patchy. Not to mention do you even call #6 a hole? Anyone in their right mind should pay the extra dollar to go play a real course :)

Worth It - Maybe.....

This golf course could be in much better shape if they had the funds. The tee boxes were okay with a few weed patches here and there. The fairways were in terrible shape - dry patches, weed patches, some grass, etc. The greens were in decent shape after being punched a few weeks earlier which i have no problem with. Was it worth the $20 to play, sure, but if they took care of this golf course, I would have gladly paid more. All in all, I probably won't play here again. I do hope they settle the lawsuit and fix this golf course. It has a lot of potential.

Overpriced but fun

The Colony course is a great distance for the intermediate player or beginners. The condition of many of the fairways and rough is not indicative of the rising costs to play there - the greens are well kept. It is not a good value.

Brutal course

This course could be a gem, but instead it is one of the worst maintained courses I’ve ever played. Weeds every where, tee boxes have patches of grass that need to be cut. Just a terribly maintained course.

Course conditions

Enjoy the layout but the course is in terrible shape. It looks as though they have given up on taking care of it. Too bad. Waste of money. Won’t play there again until there is professional management installed.
