I love this course!

The course can be busy and the course accommodates a variety of player skill levels. We got stuck behind some slow players and further down the course were cut off by some hole hoppers which slowed the round even more. Other than that, The course was great! Excellent greens and fairways upkeep and a somewhat challenging layout. I will definitely be golfing here again.

First Time Playing

Diamond in the Rough

Truly a hidden gem!! I drove down from the South Bay Area, not knowing what to expect, and the round turned out to be great!! Perfect to work on the short & mid-range game!! Used driver once, just to get it out of my system, but not necessary. Anything between a 4-iron to a 7-iron sufficed on the longer par-4’s. I’ll definitely return here!!

Shake and Bake baby!

Fun little course. Great for practicing iron play. And these guys are the ones you want in your corner, while the whole world freaks out. They've maintained an excellent environment through out all of this craziness. I've been to many other courses where everyone seems on the verge on an aneurysm. Not Baker. Everybody be chillin'. Thanks Bake.

Just so glad you are open. But as seniors it would be helpful if you would rent carts.

Great Round, Happy Day

With the Covid-19 virus on our mind, everyone adhered to social distancing. Everyone was so happy to be outside, playing golf and enjoying something normal. The fairways were in good condition, greens recently aerated so very sandy. But I don’t think anyone was complaining. It was a perfect day, great pace of play.

First of all: my hat off to the staff for allowing me to enjoy a round with my boys during these chaotic times.
Unfortunately, when I booked, there's no mention of the sanding of the greens or multiple flag sticks placed short of the greens (in fairway) due to course work being done

This course was fun and has lots to offer!

After not being able to get in a round of golf for over a week, this was the perfect course to work on driving accuracy, chipping and putting. In the pro-shop, a friendly man named Ray checked us in and gave us an overview of the course. Since it was mid-week and there was a possibility of more rain, the course was not busy and the pace of place was good - we played all 18 in under 3 1/2 hours! The tee boxes, fairways and greens were all in good condition. Our only complaint - several bunkers with lots of water from the rain.
