Excellent golf course that's not very well known
Mike Strantz redesigned this golf course in 2002 and the results are excellent. It doesn't get the kind of acclaim or press that Tobacco Road gets, but you can see the artistry that went into putting this course together.
The course meanders through the hills and valleys of San Jose, and seldom do you get a flat lie. Therefore, it's a very difficult, but not unfair course. Greens are in perfect condition and roll about an 11.5, maybe 12. The sand traps can be deep at times, and many of their traps have stairs to guide players up and down. The sand is silky, and I'm told it's the same kind of sand they use at Pebble Beach. One feature I particularly like is that the cart path blends into the sand traps on a couple holes (7 and 16).
Water comes into play on 9, 17 and 18. All of those are excellent holes.
Staff is incredibly friendly and welcoming. A hidden gem in San Jose.
