Gilroy Golf Course
It might not have a lot of competition, but Gilroy Golf Course dubs itself as the "Best 11-Hole Golf Course in America." Built by local farmers and businessmen in 1923, this unique 11-hole routing east of Santa Cruz features small greens and wide, tree-lined fairways set along the Uvas Valley that has changed very little since its founding. Though not a full 18, the golf course is still plenty challenging, including the 245-yard par-3 8th hole, a scenic tee shot considered to be the course's signature. Gilroy Golf Course has suitable BBQ and outing facilities for larger groups.

Nice course layout
Although the fairways were pretty dry , the greens were all in good shape. Especially liked the eighth hole-what a view! A good tee shot leaves you about a wedge away from the green.
Good course for beginners
The Gilroy course is an 11-hole course where you re-play some holes to make an 18 hole round. This is a fun course with mostly wide fairways that make it easier on beginners. Since it is partially hilly there are some challenges with sloping fairways and holes that make it fun. No water hazards but a few sand bunkers make for challenging approach shots. Some of the greens could use better maintenance but for the price you can't complain.
Bruce is always helpful and accommodating of our needs. Our group plays here often. a really great value.
The tees and greens are in great shape. The fairways are drying out and getting hard. The sand traps have an uneven amount of sand in them. Sometimes there is a lot of sand and other times none.

Slow play, decent course, oblivious staff
Got stuck behind a group of belligerent a-holes. Told the clubhouse about it after groups were stacking up behind us and they did nothing. Too busy preparing for some mini tournament later in the day. When checking in, was told what hole we needed to be on by a certain time so as to not interfere with the tournament. I used to play here a lot 10 years ago. It may be a great deal, but I'd gladly pay twice as much for a respectful staff that keeps the nonsense off the course.

Warning: NOT 18 Hole Course
So, after arriving at the course, we quickly figured out that the course is NOT an 18 hole course but rather that you have to play the same
9 holes twice with different tee placements. The greens were atrocious and in several instances had large barren patches.
The “clubhouse” cafe closed at 2:30 so when we finished our round we couldn’t get anything to drink, nor eat and just had to leave the key by the door. Not a very welcome feeling. We would absolutely not return! The course should have never been listed as having an 18 hole option, just simply misleading.
Beautiful Country Course
I love this course! I have played it over 75 times.
Great open views, elevated tees, relaxed atmosphere, great staff, friendly golfers, good food and beer.
For the price, it's well maintained and greens in good shape.
If you want to relax, and enjoy your round, I would recommend this course.
What A Good Day at Gilroy Golf today!
Wow it was so good and so smooth and peaceful today at Gilroy Golf Course. I really enjoyed myself and my game was spot on for not golfing in a while. I shot a par on the first hole and it is always a good way to start off so a good game will continue. I shot an 80 today . YAY
Not a bad hillside course hidden in the hills
Cool place to play in the bay area. It's very hilly but offers nice views and some good challenges.
