Challenging, no flat lies, some fairways and landing spots are narrow. Theres something to be said for this back nine, it's gettable but it can eat alive as well. Each hole is unique. Greens were in good shape

For $85 this course is not worth it. Bad spacing betweeen tee times means 2 groups on tee boxes every time. 30 minutes delay at prime golf hour and the round was 5.5 hrs, 6hrs total.....course is okay but not for the price. Never again.

Not sure why we lucked out, but our round was only 3 1/2 hours unlike many of the other reviews. Course is very hilly, weather was very windy and cold, but it's also very pretty and well laid-out so we had a great time. Price (through a discounted GolfNow deal) was amazingly good.<br/> Bar/ proshop is indeed very shabby and the parking lot is also downmarket, but the people were nice and the course is a gem.

Beautiful view and landscape, very good design. The distance and layout are both superb. I rank it as one of the best public golf courses in the Bay Area. The biggest problem is the pace. Too many players, and some are walkers. Very slow and wait at every hole. The club house is a bit shabby.

My gripes with any course are 1) did we start on time, 2) the pace of play and 3) fairway, greens conditions.

I've played here many times and during this time I experienced a very pleasant time. Of course who you play with makes a big difference and this time I went solo but still managed to be paired up with really good guys.

We started right on time. We fell a little behind in pace of play but managed to get back on track a few holes in. The conditions were great! If you're not used to this course, it does offer challenging conditions but nothing so difficult that it ruins the outing.

This rates are typically higher than other local courses which is shame but I get it. I'm lucky enough to be able to get tee times during GolfNow's Hot Deals and even some that are just discounted (but not a Hot Deal) so I always think I'm getting a steal.

People do walk this course but be warned that it is hilly. I usually cart it.

If you like a bit of a challenge, great scenery (right by the reservoir), wildlife (you'll usually run into deer in a few holes), and well-kept conditions, this is the place for you.

Beautiful setting tucked in the hills of Burlingame.

Public course, challenging for all levels, quick greens. Setting makes for a nice afternoon, wildlife abounds. You will see Deer, Turkey, and Hawks, and hopefully a few “birdies”!!!

Course is in good shape. Tees are a work in progress

A lot of players have complained about pace of play but it's probably the time of day when they play. I teed off at 700 am and my last putt on 18 dropped in at 1005 am. A 3 hour round was awesome!!

The pace of play was very slow. There was no on course management or field Marshall.

The fairways were solid and the greens were too.

The tee boxes need a little TLC
