Beware... dixing up course
Many fairways barren, greens ok... tee boxes barren.
A few holes are dug up with pipes and machines nearby.
Looks like water pipes and perhaps new sand traps soon. Sand traps were WET and HARD don't need a rake!
Hope all the work their putting into course will make it 4-5 stars. Country Club like on this weekday, as the locals know course is being changed/repaired. Next spring it should be nice!
Go to course
I gave Redwood Canyon to stars for course condition that's a fair rating but a year from now it will be value much higher you can see all the work they're doing and how they're trying to improve the course I believe some people just unfairly beat up on the course that are currently working and improving the fairways in the tea boxes it's a cool little course tucked away in Castro Valley I recommend you do play it and you will still have fun
I would’ve answered maybe to recommend this course but that wasn’t an option. Played this for the first time as it was on the way home from a trip. Got caught in traffic so called course to say we’d be 35 min late. They said don’t worry and when we got there they got us out within 15 min so great customer service there. With a new name I’m assuming it’s changed hands and they’re putting some money into it- upgrading irrigation and it appears to b an upgraded/remodeled clubhouse. Pro shop was fine with great service. Restaurant has no character and looks like a retirement community place although outdoor patio was nice. The course itself is run down. There are no tee boxes! Sure, there’s markers on areas that are mowed lower than others but it’s random grass/weeds/dirt and nothing manicured. Fairways same as t box and greens are very slow with many diseased. Having said that, the course has potential. There’s no “signature” hole but it’s a decent layout with many tight fairways. You’re surrounded by forested hills and u could be somewhere in Montana. 1-2 funky greens and next tee box that could use some rerouting. If they put some money into this and make it manicured and playable it could be a destination.
Could have been better
The course was in bad shape. Tee boxes, fairways, and greens were in poor condition. They say work is in progress but course conditions have not changed in years. Nice short layout but course conditions made round unfulfilling.
Course under repair
This is the 2nd time and probably the last time I will play this course. They were repairing the drainage all over the fairways, so there was a lot of dirt and a couple holes that were shortened. On top of that, the price was a bit to high specially for the course conditions were not favorable. Also, fairways starting to get hard and some greens are over watered.
Also, the pro shop attendant was the same guy who was there before who was really rude. As we were paying for our greens fees, he mentions that if we had booked through their website it would have been cheaper. He had to say something about that. Well, sorry for anyone who want to play this course, do not play there on a Thursday because the attendant was very rude. Also, the course is not getting any better, I guess their waiting for the rains to come to water the fairways and everything else.
This place, outside the friendly staff, is a dump. Slow play, crowned tee boxes and horrible greens where no one repairs their ball marks. Not a good course at any price.
Great value with a good layout!
I have played this course numerous times and will return again, even though it is a 45 minute drive for me! A very scenic and enjoyable course!

What can I say the course is conveniently located the staff is very friendly and it offer you numerous challenges and still it's loads of fun
They are currently working on drainage throughout the course. Some of the fairways are like hitting off of cement,(okay, not that bad). Since new ownership has taken over, improvements have been made, and continue to be made. The prices are low, but I still believe it’s well worth it. Being in a valley, there’s usually beautiful weather, and wildlife.
It’s not a long course, but is narrow. For an average player like myself, it’s a nice challenge.
Course condition and layout are not good.People played there are very slow,and nobody controls it.I waited on each hole from the 1st hole until the last hole.I spent almost 5.5 hours to finish the round.
Course was in fair condition the staff was friendly had a great time pace of play was great I recommend this course
I have played at this course 3 times now. I normally venture to different courses in the area but this is by far the best and best priced. If your looking for a great course with a nice view, look no further.
Nice golfing experience
set in a canyon with deer visible on the course...and lots of tree lined fairways but also a hand painted sign to tell you to watch out for bee's...so, beware. 4 1/2 hour round at noon on sunday...never really backed up until back nine. I like the course...fair, wide fairways mostly, greens in good condidtion able to hold good approach shots, bunkers some good, some bare. Short par 4s that let you take out your driver...but if you can't control it you'll struggle to make a 4. Short par 5's that will having you kick yourslef if you make a par. It was a fun, pleasant, stress-free round. I won't make it a regular part of my rotation because its not that challenging...but worth 3-4 rounds a year.
Came back with the hot deal again but this time the person at the shop was nicer than before. We got there 20 mins earlier and we asked if we can tee off earlier since there is only 2 of us. He said go right ahead. The course fairways were also mowed and the greens were rolling well. Still some holes are challenging due to the fact is very tight so if your ball rolls past the fairway you pretty much need to drop or re tee. Overall course is fairly easy, tee to green and greens are great to putt on. Will definitely come back with any deals.
