Ancil is in real good shape right now

Had a 10:15 tee time. Weather was perfect for a round of golf and Ancil is always a good place to start. Tee to green the course is in really good shape so kudos to the greens keeping team. I’d say the greens are running at about a 12 if not faster. Love em. Fri he’s are well defined and anywhere from 2 feet to as much as 5 feet wide. Rough is a bit patchy and you can eat some pretty bad lies if you play em down but highly playable. Fairways are great and mowed pretty tight for how many rounds this place gets. Pace of play was good and we played in about 4-1/2 hours with virtually no waiting and we walked.
They are making new tee boxes on 17 so you’re only hitting wedges to that green but the rest of the course is your regular humbling Ancil. Get out there now before a gazillion guys that don’t repair ball marks and the such.
Fairways and greens my fellow loopers.

Best maintained course in the Sac area

I have played several courses in the Sacramento area the last few months. This is the best maintained course of the group. The fairways did not have any thin spots and the greens were superb.

Seems I'm always trying to be a hero.

Always a challenge due to mature trees and a few strategically placed traps. We had great fairway conditions with only 1/2 inch of rain each week for the last month. Few thin lies but really decent overall rivaling Roseville's Timber Creek or other Del Web courses. Got stuck in one puddle trap but most looked ok. Greens are firm and don't stick or check up easily. Great change of conditions compared to some other courses like Wildhawk or Cherry. I play here maybe 7 or 8 times a year. I was really happy to see a little fluff under my ball with a fair rough and other hazards this time in January.

“Good” course

The best part of this course was the condition. Greens and fairways were great for January. Pace of play was terrible with multiple groups of walkers hitting 3 or 4 balls off the tee. Not a fan of layouts where you can see 6 different holes from every fairway. Overpriced golf course in my opinion but the course was in great shape.

Nice course

Older, traditional, tree lined course. Sand in bunkers, nice greens, tee boxes in good shape. Nothing spectacular, just a nice older golf course. A little wet but not muddy, would play again.

How far out??

Love Ancil. Lots of trees and narrow fairways. Course was in good shape. Friendly staff. I don't like the lack of yardage markers. I'd like to see blue, white, and red stakes added to the course.

Always a great course

This course is well maintained. It is one of the few courses in this area that is very playable in the winter. Drainage is excellent. They do a great job of managing the leaves during the fall and winter. During the winter it can be prone to frost delays, but the club house is open and coffe is good.It's a faily flat course with only a few hills. You don't have to be a mountain goat to play here.

Pack your own food if you want to eat after 4pm

What a great course. The greens are getting faster at this course. They've changed their punch schedule, and it has resulted in much faster greens then years past. My only complaint is that the food service stops at 4pm. Me and my playing partner were going to sit down and have some drinks and order some food. We walked in to the restaurant at 4:02, and we were told they are not serving food anymore. Sunday, 4:02, and there is no food available. I think this is the only course in town that doesn't serve food after 4pm. Really! We went to Player's Sports Pub and racked up a $75 tab. We would have preferred to spend that at Ancil.

I always enjoy playing this course

I never get tired of playing this course. The greens are in good condition and the layout offers a very nice challenge. For a County facility it is fairly well maintained. The staff at the golf shop and in the Main Event restaurant are very nice.
