Off the beaten path

A very interesting course with many diverse holes that are both challenging and very long. Several holes are well over 420 yards from the whites.
The driving range was free, but limited to irons and very old mats. The tee boxes were in very good condition, but after that there were several things that needed work. The fairways were cut very short, with many dead areas. The sand traps were inconsistent, either dry, dry with dirt close to the sand and a few had reasonably fair sand.
Lots of water on the course with very narrow fairways and on two of the holes, a driver and a three wood driven to the center of the fairway were never found. Probably rolled into the water, but I’m really not sure. The greens were weird. Fast at times, slow at times and even downhill looking putts were invariably slower than they looked. They were cut very short, so holding the greens with long irons was difficult. Lastly, the rough was cut short, but the next cut was four foot long shrub grass, so anything hit in there was lost. Pace of play on Friday was 4 1/2 hours , but since I played alone, and wasn’t able to be waved up, it seemed longer. Lastly, the wind was approximately 30 MPH, so this difficult long course was playing much more difficult than on a non windy day
A little more water and this course would be advised, even though it is way off the beaten path, about 9 miles inland from the 5 freeway through a mountain pass with lots of curves.

Worth the Journey

This course is off the beaten path, but it is only about an hour from the SF Bay area and well worth the trip. If you make the trip, you will find a challenging course, good pace of play, friendly staff, and a beautiful clubhouse.

Pace of Play = Good. Pace of Greens = Bad

I hadn't played the Ranch Course at Diablo Grande in probably 20+ years, when I was playing high school matches their. Fast forward to last Friday

PROS
- Pace of play. I teed off at 3:00 pm on Friday of Memorial Day weekend. I played through one twosome and didn't see anyone on the back nine. Even with taking my time and playing two balls on some holes, I played in 3 hours 30 minutes.
- Condition of course. The tee boxes, fairways and rough were very pure and lush.
-Layout. I had forgotten what a good layout this is. Aside from stupid #12, the course is memorable, challenging and offers playability and fun.

CONS
- Greens were the slowest (non-punched) greens I have ever played on. The greens were healthy and had a ton of grass on them, they just appeared to not have been mowed in a few days, Very bizarre and disappointing, as I was not able to truly experience the challenging greens.
- Too many homes. 95% of the homes were not here the last time I played here. I get the economics of having them, but its still a bummer to not be able to see the beautiful rolling hills in the distance.

Overall, a suitable value for $30 on a Friday afternoon at an empty course. Just need to get those greens cut!

Almost Excellent!

Everything was very good except the greens today. I have played there 5 times and the greens were fast and smooth but today was really bad. Grainy and not mowed tight, ball is going straight but bouncing.

Great course, best cookies!

Ok so I admit the cookies in the Ranch Market at the course always put me in a great mood before a round, so I’m a little bias. But, the cookie bias aside I love this course. I think it’s a little over priced for the location, 50 bucks range for a weekend round would be killer, 35 during the week perfect. But usually you can get a good deal on apps like GolfNow. Regardless this course is always in great shape, beautiful scenery, and the food is really good. If this course was closer to Livermore it would be battling Poppy for business.

Diablo Grande

Course Tee to Green was in good shape for the most part; however greens left a little to be desired as they where VERY SLOW; and inconsistent with some dead brown areas on the putting surface that where not very nice; also the bunkers where very hard and little sand ; every sand trap I was in (4-5 in the round) where very “crunchy”; hard and consisted of lots of rocks and pebbles that scratched or damaged your wedges or iron that you where hitting in the sand traps. Also the top coat of sand was WAY to thin; meaning that under the sand felt like concrete or hard to the point that you worried about injuring yourself!
Overall I had fun and still enjoyed the course especially for the value of the HOT DEAL @ $24. If I had paid the full rate of $50 about I would not be very happy with the conditions

Beautiful and Challenging Course

This was our second time playing this course this week. The staff are very friendly and eager to assist with any questions or needs. The course is in very nice shape with beautiful tees and high overlooks. There are many challenges throughout the course. My wife loves the woman’s tee’s since some of the shots are over small canyons. This is now one of our favorite courses and we will definitely be back very soon :-). Cost is very reasonable for a course of this type.
