Crowded, very slow, 85 degrees and no beverage cart.
Windy As Usual!
Finally no rain! Course was in very good condition considering all the rain we have had. Greens were seeded so putting was slow and not true to the put. I wish they would tell us before we book a tee time? Still managed a good score!
Bad day at Spanos.
Usually have zero issues with The Reserve & can't wait to play again. Not this time. Began with no parking in the lot...looks like they had an event at catering center & golfers were forced to park way out in the driveway. Long walk in. Then they were 20 minutes behind getting our group off the first tee. Once on the course pace of play was horrible. 3 hour front 9, groups stacked up on every tee. Seriously no fun. Half our group left after 9, not able to stomach a 6 hr round. Back 9 played in 2 hrs...my guess is quite a few folks bailed after 9, freeing up some space. Bunkers we experienced were crap, washed out with little to no sand, just mud & hard pan. Greens & fairways in great shape. Rough was punishingly long. Sadly this course is out of the rotation for a bit, need to let the frustration level drop.
The course was very well maintained. Staff was very friendly and professional. Patrons were very friendly as well. Excellent place to relax and play a nice round of golf.
We were a threesome with TWO FIVESOMES in front of us. They did not let us play through, and the marshals response was, "Yes, they sent out a few FIVESOMES today". We waited on every shot. Was not an enjoyable round.
Last two rounds took over 5 1/2 hours
Really like the course but over five hour rounds are unacceptable. I’m not coming back.
Fairway is beautiful, wide open, and guarded by bunkers half way down. The green is also guarded by bunkers and is very fast with wild breaks.You will be challenge and you'll have fun.
Didn't play due to unhealthy air conditions
We cancelled due to excessive smoke in the air from the Northern Calif "Camp" fire. Hazardous to my respiratory issues. I still would recommend the course under better air quality conditions.
Becoming my favorite local public course. Fast and firm.
Back 9 bunkers need some work but overall conditions are great.
I enjoyed the day, the weather was perfect and the course was in great shape and the greens where fast, but true.
Pace was too slow. On the 6th hole there were 16 golfers. I called the Marshall who helped move it along.
I have played this course a number of times over the years. Today I think the course was in the best condition. I have seen it. The fairways would run and the greens ran true. I would guess they running at a 10 to 11. Definitely wanted to be below the hole. Staff was friendly and the cart girl was going around. For the price this was a nice round.
Beautiful Course, too slow pace of play
Gorgeous course, true greens, nice layout. But when they allow 5 players in a group, your round will go 5 hours and 30 mins. Ridiculous! Fix the pace of play and I’d say it’s the best course around the Central Valley.
The fast n the furious
A great course, pretty open and not to long. But long enough that you’re gonna have to play placement golf. Only thing is the greens are as fast as they come and does not forgive aggressive attacks. Pace of play is less then desirable. Overall a great fun course. I recommend.
Great golf day!
This is a wonderful facility from clubhouse to course. Played at noon on a Tuesday with a threesome, finished at 4 and never had to wait for one shot - perfect. Course conditions were very good with very subtle but tricky greens. They were very true and slick - stay below the hole of you can!! The course is very fair, starting off very straightforward then increasing the difficulty as the round gets into the back nine. Most holes require driver off the tee - maybe some more bunkers well placed in landing zones would require more thought. Speaking of bunkers, I know it's fall, but many bunkers had zero sand and were soaked by watering into hardpan or concrete. Tough to play out of that and expect to hold shots on the slick greens. I drove from San Francisco - 1.5 hours but totally worth it for a $18 fee with cart on Golf Now!
Course was good. Greens seem like they were recently punched with pin holes. Although greens were rough they still rolled fast and true. Certain fairways had really soggy areas.
