Wait until the restoration is finished.

The Earl Fry Course only has 9 old holes open as they remodel. The fairways are bumpy. The course attracts beginners who are very slow. The bathrooms are a mess.

The new South Course looks very nice. Play there.

It's Chuck

The course is a little beat up, some of the fairways are ribbed like a washboard, but it's a good location, and it's a nice place to play, if you have 5+ hours.

I've seen marshals roaming the course, but I've never seen them ask a group to speed up or skip a hole. If you mention the pace of play to them, they smile and drive away, like they've already got your money, so why should they care? This is not terribly different from many other courses, but it makes me want to play elsewhere, where starting times are spaced out a bit better.

Never Again

I booked a tee time through Golf Now and arrived at the course only to be told by the guy in the proshop that the rain 2 days prior had forced them to close the front 9 on the course we booked. He said the back 9 was open and we could play twice and only pay the 9 hole rate. Whatever, I just wanted to golf.

The course was destroyed, and there was water on every hole. I should have just turned around, but I figured it would get better.

It didn't.

The fact that they didn't give any warnings that the part of the course they opened was unplayable (lost balls in the fairway because the puddles were so deep) is egregious. Never touching this course again...

Great Beginners Course

This is a great Beginners golf course for those that are just starting out. This is not the easiest course, there are some challenging over water holes, along with a few dogleg holes. They are currently beginning restoration work on the North Course, but still playable.

Worth $19 - no more!

Chuck Corica has been under construction for FOUR years! Usually a two-course facility, has been down to one while the other is SLOWLY being re-done. The open course has been neglected and parts of it have been transformed into staging areas, excess dirt storage and whatever else the construction needed. They still charge $30 during peak hours and is absolutely not worth that. But $19 after 3pm is fine

Super Bowl Sunday

Arrived for my 1000 T-Time. and from the number of folks awaiting to T-off on #1...they were busy. Play went well until the 4-some in fron of us got REAL slow. 1st of all, they were T'ing from the black tees and had no business doing so. Before we even finished the front 9 the group in front of them were already a full hole ahead. An "Ambassador" came out and did nothing about getting them to speed up play. Very frustrating to say the least.

Aside from the pace of play, the course was in good shape considering they are getting ready to open the South course and making arrangements to begin renovating the North course.

While the fairways have been sprayed, the greens are in the best shape in ten years. Kudos the maintenance crew.

Course needs a lot of work. Played with some regulars and they said it was going to get redone soon, which it needs. They also said pace of play was abnormally fast. Overall a good round

A Pleasant Surprise

First time playing this course and it is up there with the best of the public courses we have played in the Bay area. The greens especially were well maintained. And despite the proximity to Oakland Airport it was actually quite pleasant and relatively quiet.
