Unprofessional Staff, unkempt back 9, not worth the money for morning mid day tee

I changed my plans from going to Auburn to celebrate my 30th today, to golfing at Teal Bend because of how many 5 star reviews I saw. Booked the 8:20am and arrived at 8:14am to pay for my tee. The gentleman behind the counter told me that I was late and the 8:20 group was already on the tee. I asked if we could play, and he paused but eventually asked us how we were going to pay. Paid the $51 and was on the tee by 8:19am. Practice swing was at 8:20am. Normally, I don't care about someone having a bad day working the register, but it was one of those situations where I didn't need his attitude considering I wasn't late.
The course is definitely unique as it has that swampy/marshes feel to it on the back 9. Either way, half the holes on the back nine aren't even remotely unkempt. The pace of play is a congested because despite them booking 10 minutes apart, they're booking 4 sums. The group in front of us was pushing the group ahead of them after having let them play through to "alleviate a jam".
I'm not going back there again.

Course was In Great Shape

It has been over a year since I played Teal Bend. The course was in great shape. The driving range was a bit beat up, though I was happy to see that it did not translate onto the course. Fairways and greens were well taken care of; they even have a basket of divot repair tools at the 1st green as a reminder to repair your divots.

Excellent layout and greens; welll maintained; challenging

Enjoyed a round of golf at Teal Bend. Excellent layout and greens are in excellent condition. It's a well maintained and challenging course. I love the wooded setting. The trees have matured. I played Teal Bend over 15 years ago, so it was like playing this course for the first time. The mature trees have made this course so picturesque and beautiful. I played well too, so it was a great experience.

Love the Surroundings

Great atmosphere for a lovely day of golf. Lots of shade trees for a hot summer round... Has some challenging holes, but also some fun and easy ones.

Everything you've heard is true

What a pleasant surprise. As noted by others, this course has a great layout. The course sits between Sacramento Airport and the Sacramento river.
Plane traffic is directed away from the course, so is not a noise concern. The holes are all separated from each other by trees. With 10 minute tee intervals, you hardly ever see other golfers.
The fairways are extremely wide, giving plenty of room for errant drives. Greens run true.
All in all, a great experience. Worth a replay next time I am in Sacramento

Fun course

Fun course to play! Reasonably challenging and pace of play was good, even with tournament playing behind us.
Facilities were fair due to Corona virus.

Almost Perfect

Staff is friendly. Checking in and getting ready to play is easy. The tee boxes and greens are in great shape. The fairways are a little crunchy probably due to the heat, but certainly playable.
The true greatness lies in the layout. Every hole is tree lined and you never see or rarely hear another group on the course. Moreover, there is distance Through the trees between each green and the next tee box So the course is saying, “ Here is our next offering. Very enjoyable and unique in Northern California on a public course.

A beautiful course for a variety of levels of ability

Setting is beautiful, course is challenging for high handicappers but not too difficult. It's a bit pricey for what I'm used to but worth it.
