STILL trees not removed
After 2+ weeks and 2 holes have downed trees . One
blocks the par 5 fairway, turned into a par 3. The other has a tree laying in the par 3 sand trap... other trees have been cut up and stacked for removal. Last year the course was a 4+ noe more like a 3. The clubroom
closes early, like 5pm. So no 19th hole drinks/eats.
I've played Skywest for years. Saturday was one of the windiest days I'ven found there. A few weeks ago we had a good windstorm (for California). At least 10 fallen trees were on the course. Some blocked cart paths etc. One hole was actually shortened as three trees remained across the fairway. I later heard that the course will be closing by October. Pace of play was typical (slow) for a nice weekend. Took us 5.5 hrs to get through. Fairways were generally in decent shape. Some greens were better than others. Staff, as usual, were friendly and accommodating. The bar was well stocked but closed earlier than expected. Skywest is a nice track but it's wide open and flat grounds made for a tough day in heavy wind. I'll be back to play it again before it closes.
course needs better upkeep
Downed trees from 10 days ago still laying in the fairways. You would think the course would have at least chopped them up and have them stacked out of the fairway. The fairways were a little long. Tee boxes were OK, the greens were good. Played mid week and with little hold ups... as many tee times went unfulfilled. 30
with cart is OK if the course had the trees gone and mowed the fairways alittle better. Perfect day 60 and clear.
Challenging Pin Placements
Do to the recent Wind Event this last weekend the course lost 40+ trees. So they made the pin placements even more of a challenge. Be prepared. The tree clean up process will probably take 3-4 weeks to clean up. This does Not mean the course is not playable. Just more of a challenge.
Great Time Out at the Sky
Perfect weather. The greens slight mucky soil. Prepare to wipe your ball most holes. Never the less. Excellent greens. The putting opportunities are a good challenge
GOLF CLUBS STOLEN - HIGH CRIME LOCATION!!!!!!
We had our golf cart with 2 sets of clubs, purse, cell phone and car keys stolen on the 7th hole. The staff didn't react well and called the parks department instead of the police. Come to find out there is all sorts of vandalism, thefts, etc. and this came as no surprise to anyone except me. Why don't they put up some signs indicating their is a crime threat??? Not a sole from the golf course has reached out to me about this situation and I am a regular player there. SHAME ON YOU SKYWEST!!!
The greens are in bad shape the course over all needs better grooming hard to find balls in the rough.
One of the best Muni Courses in the Bay
I'm from San Francisco, just a beginner but have been hitting all different sub $40 18 hole courses in the region past few months.
And I must say, for a Public Muni Course in Hayward CA of all places.. This place exceeded all my expectations. From the Tees/Fairways all the way to the Green, every hole is in at leas 7-9 out of 10 condition. It's not a difficult course, completely flat and easily walkable. Course length, Tree placement and a few water hazards are a bit challenging . Lots of Canadian geese and their natural fertilizers, but this is common along all the courses around the bay.
Skywest is a challenging course.
It has a number of difficult holes.
The condition of Skywest is good but the pace of play was fair.
The greens are difficult
Our tee time is 1230pm, we arrive t box about 1220pm, the attendant reminds us we cannot t off before 1230pm, but 1223 pm tell us can t off. Only few minutes difference, why he remind that, we think they don’t like us book from GolfNow.
