The course has only a little elevation changes but has a creek that flows along side a lot of the holes especially on the front 9. Creek is on the right side and some of the fairways are narrow so if you slice your ball you may be in the creek and taking a drop. This makes the course challenging and fun to play. Only one road in the area so there is little to no noise except for the ones that nature provides.

I played here a couple times a month or two ago when it was in much better shape but now the course is very dry and bumpy. The cart paths are super dusty and gets your shoes and bag dirty. The old dude who works in the proshop, Jason, gets offended when you book your round on GolfNow like you're taking business away from the course. He was pretty sulky to me.

I have played this course a few times and everyone is super friendly but yesterday we had unusual waiting times and our first tee was delayed by almost 30 minutes.

Love the course though and wish they had opened up the 10th hole to start...

Pays to be straight as many fairways are tree lined. A relatively short course at about 5600 yards. Beautiful setting and course in good shape except a few areas where they may have broken water pipes.

Staff friendly and we played in under 4 hrs.

I've played a few times a year here for the past three years and the course is presently in the best shape I've ever seen it. Greens are finally normal instead of slow and bumpy. Around the greens it's still a little muddy in the rough, though. They've laid down brand new grass in all the fairways so they're no longer rock-hard, though we'll see how they fair in the summer months. Bunkers looked ok (I miraculously never had to play out of one!) but tee boxes are still a little hacked up. I played here Wednesday for $15 and enjoyed it so much, I came back Thursday for $24. It was a shame in the past because I live five minutes away but would always rather play Tri-Valley courses or courses closer to the Bay than Redwood Canyon. There's still some work to be done here, but it's now playable for single-digit handicappers as well as casual weekend players.

The new management is really working hard to make Redwood Canyon a playable golf course . In my opinion they have done that. It was a very fast round a little over 4 hours and I enjoyed every minute of it.
