Practice and warm up before playing - it will pay off! I went out cold without either and the Chardonnay & Zinfandel 9's were having none of that nonsense. Of course my playing partner was a regular and wanted to play from the black tees. I believed it a great idea because distance hasn't really ever been an issue but spraying to both right & left and trekking up hill after hill almost did me in. Or so my playing partner thought. When I spied a few errant balls for the shag bag, my partner thought I had fallen down with a heart attack. No such luck, I had to play another 4 or 5 challenging holes with a broken chaotic swing. Golf is the game of life, and I am the Unforgiven. I did manage to hit the Zinfandel 9th in two so, like Schwarzenegger, "I'll be back' - very good courses in good to average shape. Greens are still fast. .
Great course, very helpful staff and pace of play was excellent for Saturday we’re finished in four hours and 10 minutes.
This is my favorite course in the east Bay Area! The course is always in great shape and the golf course staff are extraordinarily friendly and helpful! They really go out of their way to make sure you have the best time possible.
Poppy Ridge gets a mulligan
Played this course many time. Course conditions were not very good except for the tee boxes. Fairways were not mowed well, had many holes and some were soaking wet. I had several balls plugged. The greens were horrendously slow. One would have to hit it about 3x the normal strength for most putts. I know what the course could/should be like, so I’ll give it a mulligan...for now.
We're sorry to learn you did not enjoy your round with us, we hoe you'll give us another shot in the near future.
The only disappointing part is the greens should be a bit faster
Thanks for the 5 stars! We hope you'll give our greens another shot soon!
Difficult course in the wind
Played in calm conditions and found it plays a little short off blues. Layout is fair, it didn’t feel crowded. Starter moved people along nicely. My main issue was that all greens were punched recently and they were very slow and uneven. Course was over-watered in a few places so ended up hitting a lot of fat shots. I’m told it’s gets very windy around the course in pm. I’m thinking it would be a very challenging course in a strong wind.
We appreciate you taking the time to give us your feedback. We're glad you enjoyed the layout and the pace the starter set. We hope you'll come back again soon when the course is fully recovered.
Great as always!
First time I played here this year but it’s always one of my favorites! The holes are interesting and challenging but not punishing and the conditions are always great. I’ve never had a bad experience here, the staff are great from the pro shop and starters through the cart girls, halfway house and restaurant. With 3 nines, there is plenty of variety. The Chardonnay 9 I think is the most challenging, but they are all fun.
We're glad you had a great first time playing Poppy Ridge Golf Course! We hope to see you more often this season!

Great course and Amazing Customer Service!!!
I played Poppy Ridge today and have a story I'd like to share. On the 3rd hole of the Zinfandel, I lost my brand new Samsung cell phone. Once I realized a hole later I re-traced my steps and couldn't locate the phone. These cell phone's retail around $600 dollars. And I don't have the money to replace. After 9 holes I mentioned to the starter what had happened. He offered to use his phone to try and locate mine. Are you kidding me? That was so nice and going out of his way. I told the pro shop and then played the Merlot nine. I was not expecting for them to find my phone, but one of the staff immediately took a cart out to try and locate. As I was playing the Merlot that same starter came and found me and said they had found the phone! I couldn't believe it! He then proceeded to drive back to the clubhouse and retrieve the phone and then drove it out to me again! I was speechless because the customer service was so awesome. I told everyone in my foursome and they were all floored as well. Because of this I will come back and play here many times and share that story with anyone I can. I am so appreciative! Thank you!
Thank you for sharing your story! We're happy our course staff was able to immediately help and locate your phone. We're here to help and make sure you have the best possible experience! We look forward to seeing you out here again soon.
Nice course. Unpredictable greens.
The course is beautiful and is in good shape. The layout was fun and challenging with a lots of great elevation changes, especially on the Merlot 9. The day I played had a stiff wind which made things interesting. The greens were in good shape but they were unpredictable. Downhill putts were sometimes slow, uphill putts were sometimes fast, putts that “clearly” should have a nice break stayed straight and putts that had no detectable break shot the the left or right at the last second...good luck.
Thank you for the wonderful 4-star review! Now that you have more of a feel for the course we hope you'll test out your skills again soon.
Hello, u1773498. Thank you for your 5-star rating! Please book another round with us soon.
Great course and condition
Golf course in great condition. Our problem was that they sent us out as a two some and we had to wait to play at every shot. Sometimes up to 5-7 minutes.
Thank you for the 4 stars! We're sorry to learn you waited longer than expected, but we hope you'll give us another shot soon!
