Second Time Skywest Air

Sending a message to those that want a fair test of golf: play Skywest. Having played here once twenty years ago this place was a wetter bog. With the rain approaching, it was dry and ball ran out well. Showed it’s character today as wind was down and dry conditions. Fast and firm. When it gets wetter and windy this place can get long. Driver wedge today.

Good job Skywest I really enjoyed course today. Good setup of pins.

So here’s the deal: it does not feel like an easy bay course. It feels like a Sacramento course. Good golf up there. And FYI, alameda south has little on this place. In case you wanted to save some dough that is...

Skywest Golf Course

I guess that because of the air pollution condition, there were very few people playing and we encountered no problems whatsoever with our course play. Except for a handful of greens, majority of the greens were in near perfect condition..

A good value!

I always enjoy playing here, especially for the good deals you can get on Golf Now!

The last couple of times playing here, it seems the management wants the pro shop employees to only let golfers out at their booked tee time, even when there are 2-3 holes open to start! I usually am a single, and easy to join with groups that are not foursomes. Also, there was no note on Golf Now that only the back nine holes were available due to aerification of the front nine! I probably would have passed on booking yesterday had I known this!

Greens

Even though the price is cheap, it would have been nice to know that the greens were punched before we booked the tee time.

When you look at all the positive things that being done at Skywest I only have one question why did it take me so long to get out here during the summer ?

The clearing of unwanted trees the fairways in great condition and the greens are just immaculate . My brother is flying in from Kansas City and we will be playing Skywest next week .

Great Experience

The course was in excellent shape. Additionally, they have done a lot of work cleaning up the entire course - cutting unwanted trees and bushes, especially around the water features. Now many of the holes are much more scenic.

Ground Under Repair

Several holes have maintenance work being done around them. Several holes were shortened to about a par 3 length to accomodate the work that was being done around them.

Nice course for a warm day inland

Course is well maintained, but needed to have the rough mowed on the back nine. Spent quite a bit of time looking for balls on the back nine. Also there we only two water faucets on the course and both were out of service and need to be fixed.
