Expected Private Experience
This a private club with two courses and I played the Lakeside Course. I went with a member as a guest but was treated as a member as the staff was top notch. I am not from California, but this seemed like a quiet retreat from the crowded East Bay Area. Rolling hills and elevation changes provided many of the holes with impressive views. Course is not a driver on every hole type course, pretty well designed, not just straight down on every hole. I played from the combo (Whites and Blues) mens tees which was very playable as many of the par fours were not long, but had dog legs or other natural features (large trees, etc.) which made placing your tee shots a premium to position your second shot to attack the flagstick. For California struggling with water, the fairways and rough was greens were hearty, although other non playable areas was brown and dry. Greens were in excellent shape and appropriate speed, not slow but not US Open fast. I tend to be a high ball hitter, but the green received and held fairway woods and hybrids fine. I would play this course again if I get the chance, this was a good experience.
