Worth It for the Test, Views and Value

Rustic Canyon is as close in this area of Southern California to afford a True Links test of your game. You need all the shots from forced carries, to bump and run around the greens, which all lean towards the Reagan Presidential Library. You'll enjoy the test, views and value at Rustic Canyon.

Favorite course in SF valley

I have been playing this course for about 7 years. I think it is the best value in the area, and I LOVE the layout. Great challenge, but very fair. Big undulating greens, greens are usually in good to great shape. It has a bit of a links feel to it with a lot of holes having a long tight fringe, when it’s firm you can play low running shots into the greens and put from well off the green. There’s also some penalizing fescue rough. Beautiful views, especially some of the elevated holes on the back nine. Can’t say enough good things about this course, I absolutely love it and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a place to play in the area.

Great Course

Quite challenging since I'm not very familiar to the links style course. Tight course, one errant drive and you're on another hole! Greens hard to read, putting was even more of a challenge. The boys loved it and I kind of got used to it by the third hole. Pro shop, grill,and cart service was on point. Pace of play was fine, never stuck on a tee box for more than a few minutes. Lots of roadrunners, ground squirrels, and bunnies. We will play again!

It took over 5 hours to play and the greens were in terrible condition. Cost for the round should've been $40.00.

Greens are the giant slayer

A links course it is, from tees to greens was awesome. I hit the ball 300, so most approach shot were finding the greens. But if you think u can putt, think again. These greens are tough, confusing, and the perception of what u see will have u guessing all 18 holes.. slope, speed, direction and eye sight will all play a factor for what your day score will, hopefully u have someone with common knowledge cause it MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE where the flag is and what side of the flag to hit.. Good luck

Rustic canyon great afternoon

I haven’t played here in about 8-9 years but met up with my friend James and played with two singles Angel and zach who just turned 30. We had a great time . This was my 67th course in my quest to play 100 Southern California gold courses in 365 days (2019) . We had a great time . It was about 98 degrees but with good company I didn’t even notice how hot it was. Thanks for a great round .
