It’s definitely not an easy course. Narrow fairways. Greens are well maintained and it’s on the slower side. Friendly staff and I would definitely come back!

Nice challenging par 9 for advanced beginners! A few 200+ yards narrow holes. All other holes are mainly over 100 yards. People that play at Blackberry are nice and not intimidating. You do hear a lot of "four!" while playing!

This is a short course that is tight but fun. The overall quality is not great but the cost is low. We had a lot of fun. Layout is a good balance of easy with some challenge.

Narrow 9-hole, gorgeous setting. The staff inside needs to upgrade to a Macbook, system processor seems slow.

You can use a driver on hole 2 and 4 which is nice from a normal short course. You can also use your hybrid or 3/4 wood on holes 6 and 9, although the fairways are very narrow.

Tight little par 3 course with 2 short par 4's (par 29). Very small greens that were in great shape. Backup when we tee'd off the guy at the desk said go start on 5 and come around was perfect. Paid 1/2 price using Golfnow. Great little course for after work was done in 90 minutes.

I would concur. Only negative I can think of would be the tee box on #3 seems to often be under repair (with a plastic temporary tee on carpet). A good course for an hour and forty minutes for 9 holes.

It was a beautiful day for Golf! Although I rated the Staff friendliness "good", I have no complaints about the Staff whatsoever....just quietly accommodating.

This is an ideal 9 Hole Course for us "old guys"(80 +) and the Greens are well kept!

Played @ BBFarm GC today & I had a great 1st time at the course!

My Summary & Ideas on this 9-Hole getaway in Cupertino, CA:

Conveniently located right off a main passageway in Cupertino [Stevens Creek], Convenient distance from major freeways, Sunnyvale/San Jose/Mountain View/SJC Airport.

Pro Shop is well-stocked with both equipment & refreshments.

Was able to snag the great Hot Deal rate near 2:30PM on a Saturday [8/26/17], Was a little crowded & busy with groups waiting to play.

Staff was kind & courteous, Especially when letting myself & my playing partner tee-off as a group of 2, when the other group of 2 didn't show up in time.

Small putting green & 'batting cage' type of structure for swing warm-ups.

As for the course itself, I found it to generally well-kept on both fairways & greens; With tee box conditions being left with a little more to desire.

A sneakily challenging mix of shorter & longer Par 3's & a couple of Par 4's that allow Driver play [For the more experienced golfers, I think the course will at least make You ponder a very good amount of your shots..!!! :)]

Narrow fairways & green sand traps keep you playing honest & focused on accuracy & consistency.

Greens aren't the smallest, & not the biggest, But still demand accuracy & care to knock it close.

I found the greens' slope to be lively on some holes, with a good mix of uphill/downhill looks; Fairly well-kept greens, fairly consistent ball roll.

& As with most 9 Hole courses, definitely a great place to practice your Short/Recovery game, & a great place for Beginners/Youth.

[Didn't get to check out the 19th Hole features, but will definitely add to the review when/if I ever get the chance to check it out.]

I'm a local; Was very satisfied with my experience! Will definitely be back & will certainly add Blackberry GC in Cupertino to my list for a quick golf round & a challenging practice round in my area.

This course is well maintained, with nice fairways, greens, and teeboxes. It's a relatively simple course, as being so short there's only so many "features" you can have. Every hole is pretty much straightforward. Only thing I didn't like was that the greens are the size of postage stamps so approach shots were tough. But that's more personal preference and not a condemnation of the course itself. The scenery is great as it's completely surrounded by nice, tall trees so you get a very nature-y feeling a little bit away from the city atmosphere. Overall, it's a nice, relaxing course and pretty well taken care of.

We were a 3some, matched with a single golfer that was very slow and could not golf at all. There was no introduction of the addition. He slowed everyone down, our team and the team behind us were often stood and watched him taking a while to place a tee in the ground and then the ball on the tee, but there was no marshall to help with the situation. The 9-hole game took us almost 3 hours when it is usually 1.5 hour game. It would be a big improvement if there could be a easy way to report to this situation to staff.

Great course and awesome deal for a 9-hole par 3 course. Everyone else on the course was super friendly, pace of play was great, and an overall, enjoyable, easily playing course (with two par 4's!!). While yes there are some super short holes, the distances were surprisingly varied for your typical 9-hole par 3
