Some of the staff is extremely rude and the slowest round of golf in the Bay Area

I have played this course dozens of times and love the course layout.

The front desk lady is a very miserable person and shouldn’t be talking to anybody. She is extremely rude and must really hate her job because her mood is miserable.

On hillside 3 there were 8 golfers carts at the tee box teeing off together and 8 other golf carts on the hole. We counted 16 people on one hole.

We called the front desk ,miserable woman, asked to see if the Marshall or ambassador could go out there and see if he could speed up the pace of play but we were told there wasn’t a Marshall onsite today. We ended up leaving early.

Course a bit too wet for my liking

The course was too wet and muddy. Too much leaves on the golf course. Hard to find golf balls. Tee boxes were terrible.

I usually enjoy playing this course but not today.

The golf course condition is fair. The staff not so good. Imagine that they won’t give you a cart until 12:15 for a 12:24 tee time!!! Doesn’t happen all the time, only this particular person.

A bad round

The starter paired me with a group then the starter allowed the group to leave without me.

When I arrived on time to play the starter drove me to the second hole and told me to just play with the group any way. This is bad even for a muni course.

Sunday funday

Great course and a lot of fun. This is my son and I go to course for a fun Sunday round. The only downfall was a lot of leaves on some of the fairway and a couple of lost fairway shots due to the leaves. Other than that our favorite local course.

First Time Playing

First time there.

My son's first time ever to play 18. First time I played in 6 Years. First time ever at this course. I like the layout a lot. Unfortunately there was a lot of ground under repair and tee boxes that were moved but the greens were beautiful. Can't wait to play here again. My first-ever 6 hour round of golf. I think because my son was hitting four or five shots before getting to the green. We had a great time though. Father and Son bonding. He's 13 years old. I know for a fact he wants to play again. In fact tomorrow he said but that ain't happenin'.

Unpolished diamond

This Ted Robinson design could be great and charge double the current green fee. But maintenance and water costs are holding this course back. Bare areas dominate several fairways. The bunkers are sand less. The greens are overwatered.

Good weekend riund

Cheap, you get what you pay for. Not enough green grass but greens were good. There should be a course guide for new players cause I lost two balls just not knowing what was around the corner. Very quick round for a weekend.

The course

I was disappointed, fairways were over watered and muddy. Greens were in good condition but need to be rolled as they were very bumpy. They put a group of 5 in front of us on the back nine and slowed play terribly, added 45 minutes to the last 4 holes.

It’s Alright

Greens are good. Fairway briowning everywhere but soggy in a few spots. Course is okay, I guess, for what you pay. Good enough to satisfy somebody who had not played for three months due to foot surgery.

Unfortunate

This course could be so nice. The facilities are great. The course condition is horrible. Fairways are baked and dry to the point it’s only dirt. The sand traps are mud and no sand. I loved the layout but the conditions were very disappointing.
