Avoid midmorning - afternoon

This is an executive course with a bunch of Par 3s. The Pace of play is rather fast unless you are stuck behind disc golfers and soccer golfers which was my case. This is probably true on the weekends only not sure about during the week. Had to wait more then a few minutes at a few holes just to tee off. The conditions of the course are rather great for the amount you are paying. Bunch of geese turds everywhere though. It’s walking only but I have seen a few people with a golf cart. It’s practically empty in the early morning on the weekends.

Birds

This course is covered in bird poop. There are so many birds. There was a dead goose on the fifth hole. The pace of play was poor. There was also a lack of etiquette. A man interrupted my tee shot and asked how far I could hit it. Another guy was driving a cart all over the greens.

Good Condition But Maintenance Personnel Need Training!!!

Weather was perfect. The course was in very good condition. The only problem was several spots which were very wet. Due to carts and maintenance vehicles driving through these areas significant damage to the fairways had occurred. I observed maintenance vehicles continuing to go through the wet areas and causing damage. Not sure why areas were not roped off by maintenance personnel. Maintenance personnel should know better and should have notified management of the problem. I flagged down the marshall and reported the situation.

You get what you pay for

The sand traps are hard as a rock. Tee boxes are super torn up, greens have divots galore, and grass is just non existant in many parts of the course. If you're a beginner or just trying to figure out your short game, you've come to the right place. You'll find many out on the course just like you and the pace of play reflects that. It's really just a practice course in my opinion.

Great Executive Course

Played a quick round here with my son and his girlfriend who were visiting for the day from out of town. Had a 6:52 am tee time and only one person ahead of us so no waiting at all.
Great course but two gripes. The amount of duck/Geese feces on the course and the foot golf hole signs threw us off twice as they differ from the golf course holes.
Other than that the staff was friendly and for only $18 walking I'll play the course again.

Misleading when booking

This is the second time I have booked a tee time here which included a cart only to be told there was no carts available. There were at least 10 carts sitting outside the pro shop ready to go. I then asked for a push cart and they said they had none of those either. We ended up having to leave, losing the booking fee from GolfNow and didn't play a round of golf. I get it, it was memorial weekend, you were busy, but don't let me book a round online thats includes a cart if you don't have any. We will never go back to this course ever again. Drove to Lake Chabot and played their par 3 course instead. The staff there were really friendly and helpful.

good features from the course

pace of play was very good. the staff was accommodating because I had mistakenly booked the Marina 9hole course and the pro shop was able to give my 2-some a good T time on the Tony Lema 18hole course. the restaurant amenity included in the green fee was good too. Tony Lema course is more of a links design than a traditional course design. Some of the pin placements were real challenging; T boxes, fairways and greens are in good condition. bunker sand seemed thin in the 2 traps I played out of.

Private course feeling.

Aside for the low price I paid, everything is like playing in a well maintained private golf course, along the bay.

A Fun Executive Course

The monarch course is great for a quick 9 and it was in very good condition. It was also challenging, but fair.
All the staff at the facility were very friendly and helpful.
We definitely hope to play there again when we visit the San Leandro area.

The 9 Hole Marina Course is Fun

We had a great time playing the Marina Course this weekend. It's a flat and easy course, the perfect kind for playing to have a good time. It took about 90 minutes to play, we didn't have any waiting time before us and nobody was immediately after. All in all, it was a great value. I liked how there were a few longer holes mixed in with the short ones. I didn't lose too many balls either.
