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.

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!

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.

Great conditions for the time of year. Pace of play on the front nine was slow, but we breezed through the back nine as several groups dropped out at the turn.

Greens ran fast with some tough pin placements that were hard to read with the low December light.

The staff and amenities were great and I appreciated that they had a beverage cart running!

The layout of this course was awesome! Super fun and challenging. Lots of trees on the course so keep it straight! Narrow fairways and pretty quick greens! Courses was in amazing shape! No drinking water on the course so be sure to bring drinks. But other than that I can’t wait to come back!

Such a great piece of property and a wonderful track overall. Pace of play typically poor. Especially in the afternoons.Too bad the employees there seem like they’re on court ordered work detention. Bad attitudes mostly. I say if you hate your job that much give it up to somebody who can appreciate it

I enjoyed my round. I wish I would have golfed here sooner. Late summer in Sacramento is harsh on courses as most are battling crab grass and dwindling greens. AH was better than most and at $10 and so close to me, I will be playing it again!!

I like this course, but there are no water coolers out there and the cart girl came around may be twice during our round. Luckily it was not really hot, but on a hot day, your own water supply runs out fast.
