Play Swenson

Front desk guy. Thanks for sliding me out. Thought I was late but was actually 23:55 min early. Course is actually improving. Noticed new sand in bunkers and greens are cleaner. Would like to see more speed on the greens still. Otherwise course was enjoyable to play.

Fun time

Fun course to play. Got behind some slower players and they held groups up a bit. Got a tri tip sandwich after the 9th. The sandwich reminded me of an Arbys sandwich. No sauce offered and no condiments. Disappointed. Oh well. We weren't there to eat. We were there for the golf. Def will go again.

Paid $12 for a round of walking. Course is in pretty good shape, the greens a little slow, but I’ll def be back. Staff very friendly.

Pace of play

No Marshall’s at this course so one one if making sure groups are moving at a good pace. A lot of 1 and 2 golfers that do not want to play in a foursome and that leads to this course getting extremely backed up if you place a late morning early afternoon tee time. People jumping holes trying to avoid the delay but that makes it worse. I left after the 11th hole as everything was backed up.

First time here

I've lived in the Central Valley for 30 years, but never played here until today. Had an early morning round. The course still has COVID-19 lockdown conditions, limiting the pro-shop to 1 person at a time, as well as having both the driving range and the putting green closed. No ball washers, no drinking fountains, no bathrooms and foam inserts in all of the holes. This was understandable considering the pandemic.

Course was in very good shape for a muni. Both fairways and greens in good shape.

The rough is...well....rough. Lots of gopher damage. The cart paths are also pretty rough and in need of repair. If you kept the ball in play however, you normally had great surfaces to play from.

Sand traps were a mess, but without rakes its impossible to maintain them.

Course is older, with lots of trees, which made it challenging especially where the fairways narrowed on the back 9.

All in all it was a great round for a very good price. Really enjoyed it.

What's with the covid19 policy

Three booked the walking rate on golf now intending to pay an additional cart fee upon arrival. I was told the fee is $17 per player per cart. I was only given two keys. After inquiry, I was told they were short on carts. There were 9 carts in the ready position at 10:50am. I explained we were not of the same household. They "Were sorry". Further, I was told the cart rate was per person without consideration of single or partner sharing. If there's a genuine concern for physical distancing why was I asked to share a cart with a member of a different household? The salt on the wound was watching another player in our group with his own cart for the same price as me sharing a cart? After the round I asked again if that was really their policy to combine foreugn riders and charge the same price. I was explained that policy was universal throughout the valley! I play at least twice a week from Roseville to Stockton. I know better!

Follow up on their web sight shows distancing protocols according to San Joaquin County under section 3, (Equipment), article 3 " Only one person per golf cart, except for persons of the same household." Again I ask, during Covid19, why wasn't this health measure followed?

The course was in very good shape, again. The greens were a touch on the slower side, but still rolled true. I started at 7:40 so the greens were still a bit damp.
