Easy course, but slow pace

the course was in good shape , a little wet at times because of the rain, but fairly dry. The pace was slowed by a group in front, the marshall came by once and said although they were about a hole behind, they were one time.

Good to be back

I hadn't played here since 2014 and it was good to be back. I walked for $25 on a weekday morning which is an incredible value for this course. Course was in pretty darn good shape considering amount of play it gets. Couple brown spots here and there but nothing that affects your ball. Greens are fun and challenging. Coupled with the Arcade course, the incredible golf superstore and spacious practice facilities, this is a staple for any golfer in the Sacramento area.

A Favorite

This course is one of our favorites. Relatively flat allowing for a good pace of play. Marshals make sure things move along. Well maintained. Best golf shop anywhere.

Nice course to play

The course is nice and enjoyable. Did not appreciate being followed by the marshall’s because they scheduled a Jr. Tourney right behind us. Felt like we were being rushed and the groups ahead of us were slowing it down for us. Still finished in a little over 4 hours so I don’t think the Marshall escort was necessary.

Windy weather
Walked

Reliably good course.

Greens keeper was in a weird mood. Pins were in tough positions and even though we had a lot of rain recently, the greens were fast. A few bunkers still with standing water. Overall, enjoyable day though windy.

Nice course when dry

All is good a Higgins Oaks. It was just too, too ,too wet for golf. The greens were excellent and drained well. It was everywhere else. Water does not drain well at this course.
We will return though. Thanks for your hospitality.

Mediocre course great pro shop

Haggin is a staple in Sacramento. They do the best they can with what they have to work with. Not a great course, but well thought out for the land and fun enough to keep going back. The best is the pro shop and clubhouse. Top notch!

Unforgiving ruff

The staff is akways wonderful here. Food and drinks were fine. Course played to it's best defense. The ruff! Tree trouble will always the same, but the ruff this time around was the trick to figure out.
Thanks again for a challenging round.

Thank you for the feedback, we always love to receive feedback on how we are doing at Haggin Oaks. As you might imagine, the rough is growing really fast after a wet winter, and now warm temperatures. Our 3 rough mowers are running non-stop, but barely keeping up. We will continue to mow the rough as fast as possible so that golfers do not lose their ball in the grass clippings or have challenges playing back to the fairway. Thank you again for the feedback.

Thank you for the feedback, and thank you for coming out to Haggin Oaks to play. We are constantly monitoring the situation with the homeless that live outside the golf course property and we are so sorry it affected your round. We use a 4 digit code for the bathrooms, so that they are only used by golfers. I am so sorry our cashier did not give you the code when you checked in. We have dried out really well and are pleased that the course is playing firm and fast. Thank you again for taking the time to share your experience - Mike Woods, Head Golf Professional

Alister Mackenzie Design at a fair price

Having an Alister Mackenzie design course available to 0lay on a regular basis and at a reasonable price is a true benefit living in Sacramento. This is an older established course with big trees lining the fairways. The 6:33 AM tee time got us off when it was about 40 degrees and a little frost on the ground. Fairways and greens were in great shape. Greens running true and pretty quick. We played as a threesome, all walking and completed the round in just under 4 hours. Pretty good Bloody Mary from the cart!

Awesome

Course is in great shape, long and open. Greens pretty good except for some divots but that’s do to players with bad etiquette. I highly recommend this course cause it’s not to hard but to score well you're gonna need a solid game. But overall a great and fun course.
