We played Mare Island in Vallejo at 11:30 as

a threesome and finished in about 4 hours.

Weather was clear with a breeze off the bay.

The course is in good condition, green rolled and mowed and fast, fairways have some bare spots but

typical California.

Good views of the bay, lots of trees and birds.

Back nine built in 1892.

Recommend lunch there.

Beautiful day, great bay views. White clover rough made it tough to find balls that should have been easy to find. Fairways and tee boxes too turf bare. some tree trimming would speed play for high handicappers. Good value based on layout and location.

We played Mare Island at 11:30 as a twosome and

finished in less than 4 hours.

The greens were mowed and rolled and fairly

fast.

Fairways had some bare spots, typical California.

The rough is tall and thick, and this course would be tough for high handicappers, as you lose golfballs.

Good views of the Bay, surrounding hills and some

real history. The front 9 was built in 1892.

Mare Island is good test. Hilly with lots of places to loose balls. With no rain lately it is getting a bit dried out. Greens are variable. Some hard and fast, others softer, slower, but not too bad.

Since sometime last year the course now plays back to front... the back being the 'newer' and the most challenging layout some say, but yesterday the back, old front, actually did me in, as those holes are supposed 'easier', but there is less fairway to hit AND more trees to ping around in!

All in all, two differing styles of golf between the back and front 9, be ready to switch your game plan!!

I would play the course again. What ruined my round was the 5 some in front of me. Way to slow, and no marshalls on the course. The cart I was given to use needed to have the interior hosed down. I had to ride with the front windshield down as the upper left side was taped up. But for $20.00 bucks including cart, I still would play the course again.

Great rates for a nice 18 hole links style course. Most sand traps were hard as a rock and fairways were dry in spots. Overall the layout is excellent and with a few course maintenance improvements it would be an excellent value course. I will definitely be back to play again as the value per round is there.

The course layout requires critical thinking hole to hole. Especially when it's windy. At first glance it looks easy, but it's not. The greens ate me up the first 4 or 5 rounds, but after that I managed to play them better. I love playing this course.
