Fun course

Poplar Creek is a fun course to play.
It is not too difficult and in good condition.
The greens are very challenging but in good condition.
Pace of play was only fair but everything else was very good.

Very poor conditions

This courses greens and area around the greens were in horrible conditions. Blotchy crab grass around the greens. Whoever pulls the holes doesn’t make sure it’s packed back down. You literally watch puts make right or left turns as they approach the hole.

good course a little windy

Poplar Creek is a good course with a good layout.
The course is in good condition but the pace of play around noon is very slow. Other times pace of play is much better.
The new restaurant is good but service is not good.

Nice but too SLOW

I play here sometimes when I am in town. Mostly because it’s very close to friends we stay with. I am always hopeful they won’t have crammed as many people onto the course as possible and I’m always disappointed. This time was no exception. 10:20 tee time on a Friday and it was almost a five hour round. Also while I saw the Marshall numerous times no one prevented a foursome that was two groups ahead of us from stopping at the snack shack after 9 eating lunch then jumping in front of my group. Did not help pace of play at all. I’ll be looking for a course on my way to San Mateo to play next time.

Nice course

The course is flat and easy to walk. Fairways are fairly wide and clear. The course is fairly well maintained with clean fairways. The greens are a bit bumpy, but generally run pretty well and offer a challenge. We enjoy coming here for a challenging (but not frustrating) round that is very walkable!

Good course

Poplar Creek is a good course with some challenging holes. Pace of play was better than normal today.. A new restaurant opened this week in the clubhouse but I didn't try it.

First Timer

It was my first time playing this course and it was somewhat challenging due the wind and unfamiliarity of the layout. The greens were FAST. I would definitely play this course again.

Good course and great weather

Poplar Creek is a good course that played very well today. We played in less than 4 hours at a peak time. The course is in excellent condition and it offers a great value.

Good round .. little slow

Course was in overall good shape. Our round took about 4 hours and 45 mins. We slowed down on the back nine on the last 4 holes.

I forgot what hole ... par 3 ... in the bunker .. hated it because there was no sand in the bunker so I couldn’t play a true bunker shot.

The restaurant is under renovation, but they did have complimentary coffee and pastries for everyone which was nice.

Local Course

This is the course I go to last minute when I don't want to travel or spend a ton....with that, it can be a long round and the greens get a little beat up by the end of the day. Then theres the days when the weathers perfect and people are moving along, like today. Greens are almost healed so a little bumpy but fairways were good and the people were nice.
