Horrible course conditions.

The course is basically unplayable. Many faiways are completely bare of grass and aerated with one inch aeration plugs all over. There is no way to hit the ball among all such plugs. We quit after 9 holes even if we paid for a full round. What a waste of time and money. Booked through GolfNow and the website should have disclosed such unplayable conditions. I would suggest you go somewhere else to play. GolfNow should also reimburse the fee paid. The course should also reimburse the green fees, at lease half of them.

Course condition

Course needs lot of attention, many bare areas. Signs of big water shortage, sometimes holes in fairway making cart driving very bumpy.

You get what you pay for

No grass on fairways, your ball does not hold on fairway. So dry it just rolls with the slope. Ground staff does not stop what they are doing even if you are right beside them. Greens in descent shape. If you want to warm up or just have a drinking game sure this is fine. I would pay 10 bucks and be happy

Fun course

Fairways have many dry spots but greens are in a good condition. very playable. Used to be too fast and unstoppable on a certain greens like 4th, 12th and 13th.

I enjoyed a round of golf today.

Thanks for staffs.

Needs Help!

I have not played Summitpointe GC since last year and the course is in poor to bad condition. The tee boxes and fairways had very little grass. The greens have diseased areas and plenty of ball marks. That is one thing that really bothered me was that players were not fixing ball marks on the greens or raking bunkers. The players need to do more to help maintain the course.

Dog track

I used to play here semi regularly many years ago and it was in decent shape. It was frustratingly hard to enjoy with sloping fairways you could rarely stay on with anything but a perfect tee shot. Now it is in embarrassing shape with actual green grass few and far between. Tee boxes are miserable. Only redemption for this round was playing early on a weekday to get out of there in 4 hours vs. the 5 it sometimes can take.

You get what you pay for but this course does challenge you

Summit is the kind of place you play on the weekends when you wanna save a buck and play quick. Early morning weekend rounds can be done is less than 3 hours with a cart so to be able to get 18 in for the price and time is more than worth it. Conditions could be improved but it’s cheap so you gotta figure it’s not Augusta.

Look elsewhere

There are a lot of courses in the Bay Area, and most in better shape. Summitpointe now has signs just about everywhere barring carts from the fairways. Why? Because they are trying to protect what little grass remains, since the place hasn't been watered since who-knows-when. Doesn't benefit you any to hit the fairway when your second shot is a tight, dry, hard lie in most places. Almost had to pound my tee in with the ball at a number of tee boxes. Seems there's lots of water to turn the bunkers into heavy sludge, though. Summit Pointe seems to lack simple upkeep, and especially water. I'll check back next year and see if things have improved, but I'll spend my money elsewhere for now.

Need some grass

Summitpointe is a fun course with some interesting holes, BUT - there is a LOT of hard pan. Coupled with some severely tilted "fairways", there are several holes where it is impossible for a ball to end up in the fairway.

We did get around the course quickly for a weekend morning.
