The course is extremely overpriced. The pace of the play was extremely slow. Too many beginners and no Marshall. There’s no golf attire requirement, just not a course I’ll recommend to friends and family.
The course was in great shape & the pace of play was good!
Staff was very accommodating and the restaurant was fantastic!
The staff was great, the course well maintained except for a couple of tee boxes. It was, however, quite noisy from the traffic on two highways and an Army base that had a locomotive intent on letting everyone know within range that it was running.
Facilities and staff were amazing. The regulars not quite so much. Not sure if I'd go again, but their deal was a good one. There is a possibility I would check it out again in the future, but I would think twice about it.
I had hot deals T-times , the day of corona virus outbreak my other golfers couldn’t play, it was also raining. I called the course spoke with the Manager and she told me she called her golf now rep and they would contact me. Basically I’m done with golf now and this course. All I asked for was credit towards another tee time. They offered nothing!
Not really good service by either
Open fairways, tough pins
Had a good time today, I'm not the straightest off the tee, so wide fairways are my friend. Good condition, decent pace of play too. But the greens, wow some tough pin placements for us amateurs. Still a good course. Clubhouse and restaurant/bar are ok. In general the whole place is a bit dated.
Slow go but decent for the dough
Have played here a few times. Decent bang for your buck but no matter always more than a 4.5 hour round. If you haven't played this course before it's a very standard course nothing to crazy. Greens were in decent shape and fairways still holding on for the winter
Very well maintained, slightly pricey
I thought the conditions of the course were great. I played early morning to the greens were still pretty wet which made them slower. Pace of play was not an issue, as many groups let me through because I was playing solo.
Course layout is pretty straightforward; it all makes sense, straight fairways and no doglegs. For the average player it's probably a fairly easy course. Because I am a beginner I still hit many over-pars.
My main point of critique would be the price; I recently played Wente for only a few bucks more and in all fairness, that course is a few steps up from this one.
Pace of play
Took over 3 hrs to play front nine. Two groups of 5 delayed play and no marshals to speed up play. Quit after nine holes.
I’ve played this course a few times and it is always in great shape!
I play late mornings and early afternoons, so the pace of play is excellent!
The restaurant on site is always full of good beer & great food!
To me, the difference this time was the service. It’s always been ok, but this time the two gentlemen working in the pro shop were excellent! They went out of their way to be polite, friendly & courteous!
Great day at Diablo Creek!
Worst Golf Experience Ever
This was my worst golf experience. The course was actually in fair shape. However, the pace of play was the worst ever. We had a tee time for 10:32am on Oct. 14th. The course had a high school tournament scheduled for 8am that day - 120 teen age girls (all good golfers). Their shotgun start delayed our tee time by 30 minutes. OK, I can deal with that. However, they had booked tee times for 10:30, 10:32, 10:34 and 10:36. No way that can work. The front nine took 4 hours. The back nine took 3. We talked to some locals who play here frequently. They said this is common at Diablo Creek. There were no marshals evident to help improve the pace of play.
Will we return here? NO WAY.
The course was in great shape, even the Tee Boxes have been re-seeded!
The pace of play was excellent and everyone was very friendly!
Could’ve played anywhere in the bay area for my birthday I chose Diablo Creek golf course because the course is always in good shape
Just not my course
My friends love Diablo Creek and I don't.
First off, no fault of the course, but consistently I have played with odd people, who do things that ruin the game for me, i.e. stepping in my line, driving up to the green when I am in the fairway and playing a shot while I am plying my approach, etc. I get it that the course can't control that, but it has happened a few times, so much so I am turned off on the course to a degree by that.
The course itself is my barometer for how I can handle long courses. The course has some obstacles, but 12-14 of the holes are the same long holes with a bit of shot shaping, but mostly this course is about distance. You will need to maximize your distance to get the most of the course.
The notable holes are the seventh, a water shot with a wedge that has a view of the road. I am fond of the par 5 3rd, a long par 5, often into the wind and the tenth hole which is a risk-reward short par four with a forced carry to a false front green.
The greens are good, and the course plays well. It just is simply robot golf. Hit the ball long and aim, the shots are pretty apparent and few creative options.
