Great Conditions and Rate
I got an incredible rate at arguably the best public course in Sacramento. The course is in amazing shape; props to the Supt and his ground crew.
Peter likes this golf course
The green was in very good condition even considering we had the winter storms. It was very well maintained and enjoyed the cloudy weather.
Run tournaments every Thursday and Saturday that create 6 hour rounds for all others players. Nice course, nice staff, horrible 5 hour round to play 15.
Everything would have been perfect this lovely fall day except for the billowing cigar smoke we had to tolerate from the twosome we were paired with. I am really tired of having to cough and get headaches due to this inconsiderate behavior on the golf course. Even after I said something to these jerks, they still never extinguished!
Why people don’t play golf. 9 holes in 3 hours?!?
Took 2 hours 50 min to play 9 holes. So we quit. This is not the type of course to spend 6 hours on. Maybe Pebble Beach, but not Ancil Hoffman. There was a marshal we stopped and complained about pace of play, but didn’t help. Won’t go back.
Would've been nice to play the whole 18.
Paid for what I thought was 18. Drove 45 minutes to get there, and the back 9 was closed. No advance notice given by GN. Salvaged it by keeping a good attitude, appreciating that the weather was great, and the overall appearance of the front 9. But playing the same 9 holes twice to make 18 isn't my idea of a good value. Nor is it incentive to drive that distance.
Great layout, tired greens
This layout can hold its own with any level player, and could hold any level of tournament in my opinion. It’s all about what tees you play from. From the tips, you have to be long & straight, as every hole is lined with mature trees. The greens are just tired from a season of heat & play, hence my tired title. They roll well though, and are quick. It’s an easy walking course as it’s completely flat, so old school, parkland golf. We shot 73 & 89 from the blues, and enjoyed our round.
Traditional Course in Great Shape
103 degrees and the fairways and greens were in great shape. Wide fairways, old growth trees, bunkers, and challenging greens on this oldie but goodie muni make it a fun and interesting round. EVERY staff member was friendly and helpful. Needed the beverage cart one more time on the back, but in fairness, there weren’t enough folks playing the scorching afternoon to warrant the route. Will return with friends - live 1.5 hrs away.
Hey golf now. I was a member and now I'm not. Never told my membership was over or if I could renew. Very dissappointed .
Nice course by American river
There are two bad things about this course, super slow play everytime I go and the price is always high for Sacramento. Marshall never comes and updates course time even when packed, and for 50 to 70 bucks just not a deal unless you get a discount. So a group of four old timers playing pretty slow in front and a group of kids hitting into us from behind doesn't help with my comfort zone.
Very nice setting, carts are great, USB chargers, ball washer, club washer very nice amenities.
Great traditional parkland course
Straight-ahead old school layout, it plays right in front of you with no gimmicks or houses to worry about yet wooded with plenty of trees that make it a challenge. Greens are very gentle with subtle breaks, no goofy roller coaster undulations, in good condition and speed is moderate-to-fast. The pace of play is often slow and the range is tired, but otherwise it is one of my favorite tracks in area.
This course is beautiful, saw 5 deer walking the course
This is a beautiful course that is well groomed, lots of beautiful trees line the course.
I've golfed Ancil Hoffman for many years. The playing conditions were fantastic! The greens were smooth and fast. Given the time of year and recent weather, they were much better than anticipated. Very few blemishes or divot marks although we did repair a number of divots, that was due to other golfers not being very considerate. Fairways and roughs were well mowed and in fantastic condition as well!
The course is perfect
I have been playing this course most of my life. I have always loved the layout and enjoyed playing here. However, I have never seen the course in the shape it is in right now. It is absolutely perfect. I can't wait to play here again.
