Good Overall

When checking in, was told they would let us know when a cart was available. No golf carts?? Borrowed one from a group finishing their round. Switched to another cart at the turn. Greens were a mess, so bumpy we invoked a two putt rule. Fairways were great. Bunkers were okay, looked like they were replenishing the sand in many. For the cost, I would come back and play again.

Greens were very bumpy. It appeared like there were different types of grass in sections on the greens.

Slow and bumpy

First time here. My buddy wanted to play here. I have to say the greens were very bumpy with different colors or grass of different lengths. Some fairways were very bad condition. We quit out early due to the slow play in front of us 15 holes took us 4 hours. I liked the layout but nothing worth making me drive an hour to go back.

Nov. 17

The fact that this venue remains in limbo is illustrated by the lack of attention to the facilities. Literally, THE facilities.

Staff was great. Course was in good shape. Greens were good for Nov., bunkers good too.

Dad n Lad Trip

My son and I had planned a golf day; neither of us are great golfers, so the day is measured by how much fun we had.

The course maintenance had high and low spots. The course actively had mowers dancing about and generally the fairways and greens were in good shape. Although the traps were clean and freshly raked, they could use a lot more sand. Spots in the course were over watered and left sink holes in the fairways, and mud holes throughout the course. The course layout is suitable for the beginning and average golfer, it shows little challenge for a great golfer.

The part that chapped my behind was the fact that both the restaurant and the bar were closed. We planned the day with a tee time that had lunch at the turn, and had a wife that drove us to and from the course so we could have a couple beers and closing cocktails.... didn’t happen, thus my fun level (the yard stick used to quantify the experience) was very low. We will plan another outing, it just won’t be at Deer Ridge.

Riding solo not guaranteed

I reserved a tee time by myself thinking I would be given a cart all to myself however I was forced to share with an unknown golfer. Is that the rule?

I should I have been given an option to ride solo?

Nice place to spend a few hours

First time playing here, staff was very friendly, course was in good condition and pace of play was good. Got around in about 4 hours. And only had to wait once or twice. All in all a nice place to play.

Perfect Day.....

Until we caught up to a miserable foursome that had NO common sense or etiquette to let us play through even though most EVERY hole three of the four would be looking for there balls and no one was in front of them for as far as you could see(at least 3 holes)So from then on the game got really bad and people starting coming up on us from behind when we were two to three holes ahead of anyone near the 4th hole

College tournament mid-afternoon Saturday?!

My friends and I decided to try and give this place another chance. I previously wrote a review about this course and how terrible the greens were and while the condition of the course seemed a little better this round (esp the 10th fairway), there was a college tourney on a Saturday.

We had a tee time @ 1:14PM, but actually tee'd off a little past 1:30PM. I didn't mind so much since we were the first group out after the tournament and I was expecting to finish still, but we didn't. Daylight ended around 6:40PM and we were still on Hole 15 so we had to call it. Extremely upset since we were waiting on every tee box for about 15-20 mins for the 1-2 groups of the college tourney to finish.

No warning from the pro shop whatsoever and no rain check or marshal to accommodate us after the round. Golfing in the far east bay is already hard, so I will add this to the list of "Do not play" courses.

The Round That Didn’t Happen

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to play today because the course scheduled a college tournament right before I was supposed to tee off. They were already behind on the tee sheet and they didn’t seem overly concerned about it. There would have been no way I could have finished the round even if I had waited around to play. It would have been nice to have know this information up

front. I wouldn’t have taken the time to drive almost an hour to play the course. Why a college match was scheduled on a Saturday baffles me.
