Great track

The fairways, bunkers and greens were in pristine condition. My only complaint is the tee boxes were a bit chewed up. I was able to find a relatively nice spot on most tee boxes to hit from. I played the Cinnabar tees today.

Gorgeous top 5 public course and would play any day over coyote next door

A top 5 public course that is very very challenging and you will not find many high handicap players and so as a single it makes pairing very fun and memorable

Challenging

Nice layout with several sets but not a course for beginners. Fairways are well maintained. Greens are very fast and firm, maybe a little too fast. Can get windy but overall a great course

Fantastic Layout

This is one of those courses that is a joy to play. There are three nines and they are all excellent challenging layouts. I would warn the average player that if you can’t hit 240 yard drives to move up to the silver tees. This course is not about distance. It’s about precision. The “Cinnebar” tees (what is considered “white” on most courses) play to about 6100 yards. But because of the hills and where the speed slots are on the course it plays MUCH longer than that. If you hit your drives around 200-220 Bury your pride and move up to give yourself a chance to enjoy this jewel. The greens are lighting fast and have huge breaks that are difficult to read. But your reward is that each hole brings a different look and provides a variety of club selections that makes for a complete round.

I would pick this course over the more famous in this part of the state such as Pasatiempo and the Black Horse and Bayonet courses. If you are in the area don’t miss it. In fact play all 27 holes.

Great challenging course

Cinnabar is the best public course in South Bay period. It’s very consistent throughout the years and well maintained. The three different courses test your skills and force you tp use all clubs.

Superb Course

I live an hour away but I'm really considering playing here more often. Greens rolled true and not too fast, not too slow and hold approach shots well. Really cool layout, I played Mountain up in the hills and Canyon among the woodlands which was very scenic. I'm sure Lake is just as good. My dad and I played Coyote Creek two weeks ago and we agree Cinnabar Hills is a cut above Coyote.
