To be fair we paid $32. The course is interesting and has some challenging holes and greens. If it were maintained better it would be worth a return. There was no sand in most traps. Since no driving range they touted their chipping area which was impossible to use as completely unmaintained. No marshal or if so never was seen to speed up slow groups ahead.

I still enjoy playing this track a lot but the condition of the course isn't as nice as when they sister course(Shadow Lakes) was still open.I find the courses in brentwood are becoming less attractive and the best ones are closing down(Roddy Ranch and Shadow Lakes)which were the two real challenge courses here.But its still a fun place to come play a round if you can find a deal on it and its not gonna be warm in the bay area.

I realize the Delta has lost several courses over the last 18 months...but this was truly shocking. Noon tee time....foursomes sent out every 10 minutes...which wouldn't be problem if the skill level was higher. But, its a muni...and player skill is all over the board. From topped tee shots to ball searching caravans on every hole. If you want to do that folks...have more Marshalls on the course to keep groups moving along. I quit at 13 after 5+ hours.

The greens were a little pokey after aeration...get the rollers out folks...they looked good..but didn't roll well.

Wow, this place is really going down. I predict is not long before it goes away. Course conditions in spring should be much better. Greens are rough and slow, sand in traps nonexistent, fairways and tee boxes are mediocre at best.

We play this course often since it is close to home, and the price is right. I know it's usually slow on weekends, but today was ridiculous. They let a five-some play in front of us, not ony were they a five-some, but an extremely poor playing five-some with no sense of pace of play, and they should not have been playing from the blue tees. We watched at least a few of them looking for their ball on the hills sides on almost every hole. No marshalls were found anywhere

They were very hospitable allows us to add a fifth guy without breaking us into two groups. Overall the course was well maintained we started at 11:12 on 4/14/2018. Due to the course length we played the far back tee which made the slope 135. The course was deceiving as it became much more difficult on the back nine. It is paramount that u stay out of the rough as to find a ball is fruitless for the most part. There is a premium on shotmaking for sure as errant shot will be punished especially on the back nine. My only complaint is that the greens were really slow and maybe need to be cut down more. If that happens this course will be a true beast. I intend to return later this summer. C. Tray

This is my favorite course in the area. Well maintained, friendly staff and competitive golf fees. As a single digit golfer, this course provides me a good challenge. Just wish they can fix the tenth fairway which has been the only achilles heel for this course. The greens are also recovering nicely from a recent aeration done as part of regular maintenance. With a couple of course closures in the area, this has become my home course, a pretty good one!

For the frequent golfer this is outstanding value. Play is usually at a descent pace and the course plays to most levels of golfers. Not a course for beginners, but with some experience can be quite fun. Adding a driving range would be a plus, but I understand the restrictions.

For the 35 dollars plus fees to play was to much for the condition the greens were in. Slow lots of sand still very rough hard to putt on to keep ball on line as the ball bounces it’s to the hole cost out of line for conditions
