VERY BUSY SUNDAY!!!

The price is reasonable for a NorCal golf course! I like this course because it offers variety. The front nine is challenging, the back nine is relatively easy, flat and short. The problem with this course specially during this time of the year is the wet and soggy fairways! The greens are fine although some of them needs attention. THE MAIN PROBLEM THOUGH WAS , I DID NOT EXPECT TO SEE A LOT OF PEOPLE ON A SUNDAY NOON TEE TIME!!. Good for the golf course though but bad for the golfers. There are at least 4 groups waiting on the first tee and then it did not get better from there. We always have to wait every hole!!! to hit our tee shot and then wait again for the second shot. 5 hours for a 3some is not ideal!!!

Convenient course minutes from home

I play this course many times during the year and it's a really great course unfortunately it rained really hard the past couple of weeks in the Bay Area so the course just couldn't sustain all that water that's why I gave it at 2 stars for course condition but the overall rating of Redwood Canyon is 4 Stars

Driving range closed again

I played this course twice in a 3 month span. Both times the staff told me I couldn't buy a pre-round bucket of balls because the staff the day before didn't pick the balls and the driving range was closed.

Otherwise, it's a nice little course.

Not worth the money

Greatly disappointed. If it was a $20.00-$30.00 I would be fine but it’s not worth the price of $50.00 even for a Saturday afternoon. Poor course condition (even though in December) and lack of range balls put a downer on our experience.

Redwood Canyon course review

I live a short drive away from Redwood Canyon Golf Course and I play there more than any other course in the area for three reasons. First is that it’s so close to home, second is the value, and last is the challenge the course presented. Even though the length of the course is not super long, there are some very tight fairways. Tricky, and a value for sure.

Redwood canyon

Good course for the price. I would only golf Here with the “Hot Deal” from golf now. Parts of the course are dry, and some of the greens are a little too wet. After the huge flooding at this course seems like it never really fully recovered. Still under construction(once they left a bobcat tractor out in the middle of the fairway on the 9th hole). For the price and what you get I say it’s pretty fair.

Perfect weather

A Morning at Redwood Canyon

3 hour, 45 minute round; great weather. Greens were in very good shape, but the fairways need some improvement and were over watered in some places. A great course to walk. Definitely will be going back.

Don’t bother

Wow this place was terrible!!! Haven’t played here for a while and was told they have been improving the course ha ha! Yea that’s what places will say to lure you in. Maybe they have worked on the clubhouse or restaurant but, the course was in very bad shape. This place is a DIRT BOWL!!! no way was it worth $50. I would say maybe $30.
Fairways are dirt you could hit in the middle and then have to move your ball 10-20 yards to find grass. Broken water pipes all over. Never again

Local and Low Cost

I came out here to play this for us with a friend from San Francisco. The course had a great deal on the race but that is where the value ended. There are no amenities, my rental clubs had trash in the golf bag and the practice range ran out of balls. It took very long for us to check in for our teatime as the gentleman had a hard time working with computer. There were sevenral other customers backed up behind us and I could hear how frustrated they were. The course is pretty, but definitely has issues with flooding

Don't Fade

Good course for "target golf". Faders will have to control their shot on all holes as the creek is in play on all 18 holes. Currently (Sept) they are doing lots of ground work in preparation for next year's rainfall. This course is regularly flooded during heavy rains and is upplayable. Still, a good course to practice iron accuracy.

Much Improved

I had stopped playing this course in 2017 because it was terrible. The last time I played two holes were closed off because they were flooded and they were watering the course. I got a refund and left. Went back today because a friend wanted to play the course. I was amazed at how nice the course was. Greens were so much improved I was amazed. For the price it is a good deal. I will be going back.
