Great experience all around!

From the start of the day in the pro shop to the after round lunch, the golf experience couldn’t have been more enjoyable! Everyone I dealt with was great. It surpassed my high expectations for the day. The greens were running at 11 and rolled true. Each hole is memorable and provides plenty of challenging shots. I would love to play this course again the next time I’m in the San Jose area.

A hidden gem in Silicon Valley

Too many bucket-list chasers drive right by on 101 en route to the Monterey Peninsula without realizing what they're missing at Cinnabar Hills.

This is a fun track. There's some target golf involved, but there's never a dull hole. It's got elevation changes and sweeping views and loads of variety. The greens were super fast, too.

The bonus is the museum inside the clubhouse, home to all sorts of artifacts - a real green jacket from Augusta, the only collection of replica trophies of the four major championships and clubs used to shoot 59. Definitely, a Bay Area must play.

Excellent Condition

Cinnabar is in excellent condition. Many of the tee boxes have been leveled and redone. The greens are perfect and receptive, but fast. My favorite course in the South Bay.

Perfect condition

Always enjoy Cinnabar Hills, but today was perfect. Fairway was watered nicely, temperature was perfect with light wind.

Shot my personal best 2 over on Lake course today.

Mountain/Canyon course

Absolutely beautiful course, with amazing views. The course was challenging with fast greens, and elevated tee boxes. My only complaint, no beverage cart.

Would play again.

Sanded practice greens & wedding reception.....

Course in great shape. Greens very challenging with speed and undulation. Played Lake then Canyon. Excellent layout with one exception. #7 on Canyon is a stupid hole. Reminds me of the uphill hole with 12 foot flag stick at Lake Chabot in Oakland. As dumb as #6 at Wente.....Practice greens were recently punched and sanded. No relation to speed on the greens on the course. Took 3-4 holes to adjust to the correct speed. There was a wedding reception going on in the club house so had to wait about 15 minutes to get a post round brew. Next time it will be a weekday.

Wonderful public golf for Bay Area

Thanks to Golf Advisor, I discovered this course and all its great reviews.

Turned out to be a fine test of golf on well manicured fairways and fast true greens for $65 per player.

Scenic winding holes on terrain that requires precise shotmaking makes this layout a real test.

I played on five courses in the 8 days in California, 2 on very private country clubs, and Cinnabar had the finest greens.

Wish I lived in San Jose to play this regularly.

My wife, who is a 30 handicap also loved it.
