This course short in length, but tight fairways. <br/> Temp 60=62 slight breeze, good for January.<br/> Fairways nice, greens good. 4 hour round.

I was excited to try this course out especially after reading comments on pace of play and the course coming around. The layout on the front nice straight out then straight back in. It is a pretty canyon and the holes are nice enough with a creek cutting through and bordering several. The greens were in pretty fair condition too with only a few bumpy, clumpy, bare areas.

That was the good part. The tee boxes are just awful. It was wet from the storm earlier in the week so I excepted a little slippage, but the grass is so long and bare in so many spots I couldn't keep my footing amongst all of the mud. The fairways felt like rough when there was grass. So many bare, muddy and flooded spots everywhere. Again, footing was horrible and just general no relief to find a spot for your ball with a decent lie.

The rough was all weeds and crab grass. In many areas it was hard to find where the fairway ended and the rough began.

Oh well, Ive said enough. Sadly this is a goat track I won't be back to visit.

The course is in great shape. Need to play before it starts raining. Greens are in good shape and the fairways are rolling nice as well. Playing golf in December has never been better at this course.

It was the day after it rained so yes it was very soggy.But finally there are doing something to improve this course.Its not what it can be but slowly but surely its starting to get there.Better then the last time I played here and thank GOD they finally replaced the carts.There is still a lot of work that needs to be done but you can see effort and improvements that are being made.I would say by next summer it should be coming along quite well.

Redwood Canyon is one of my favorite Bay Area courses. I have 3 of my 5 best scores there! On weekdays it's really fun to go there and make good time. The course was in pretty good shape, except for some bare spots on the fairways near the tee boxes. I'm sure I'll be back many times. Since the new owners/managers took over two years ago they've upgraded the course.

The staff here is unfriendly and downright rude. Carts always a problem...range balls not available..."it will get better" is all they have to say and not polite

They can care less if you come back or not...very poor management.

This is the worst kept golf course I have ever played in CA. The front 9 is especially awful. Fairways are bald or muddy. Tee boxes are weeds. The greens looked great because rest of course was so awful.

Arrived early hoping to finish early and allow my guest to catch his flight. Staff denied us and said signed in allowed only for 5 min before booked time. Manner was firm, authoritative and with any smile. There was not a soul in site and the golf course could spread the players more evenly when we start early when no one is around.

It was a Sunday so you expect "weekend" golfers but there were a lot of knuckleheads. Also when you check in and ask for your cart but are told many are inoperable so you need to wait. Also golf shop also very underwhelming. Almost no golf items.

As for the course it was either bare earth or wet spots to avoid.

Then there were the kids driving around the parking lot trying to play tag.

Disappointing.
