Home course

Really well maintained fairways and greens. Bunkers are also well kept even without raking. The course is flat and ideal for walkers. It is also fairly easy but there are challenges with ponds and creeks on holes 2,3,11, and 14. The 18th is a beautiful finish with a pond on the right and multi level green. Best time to play is the early morning hours- zero wind, fellow golfers are experienced and know the rules of etiquette. Also the bar and restaurant have a great menu and good service

Great course

Could not find reservation when checking in which was paid as a hot deal on GolfNow. Was charged the standard rate and tee time was an HOUR later than planned since that’s when they “could get us in.” Played here many times with no hiccups but today wasn’t one of them. Just be careful when booking.

flat track

nice flat track where the conditions are above average. fairways and tee boxes are full of grass and trimmed nicely. putting greens are large with slight undulation however the speed is inconsistent. their putting green is much faster than on the course. tee times are busy but the players here keep up with the pace. this course can get difficult when the winds pick up. you can definitely overpower the course if your driver swing is on point.

Green condition was good

This course has a tendency to be dried out because of excessive wind. However, the course I found was in very good shape for this time of year. Greens Were really nice and were in very good condition. I would recommend this for a value added Golf Course.

too much drinking

hard to focus on golf when the other golfers and focused more on drinking than golf. thankfully i was able to move past them after seven holes because they were playing so slow.

Good to be back. Great place to get past the covid blues

Poplar is open layout. The wind decides if it’s an easy course perfect for beginners and families to get away from shelter in place all the time...or a Bay Area challenge against 30 MPH gusts that turn the par 3 12th into a driver hole.
Come out and enjoy. It’s well worth it.
