Overrated

Course condition fails to deliver for the price. Thin, patchy grasses in the fairways.
Greens roll fast and true.
When the non-resident price is factored in-just not worth the price.

Fun and challenging

The course is very fun and challenging. The green structures are a lot of fun to figure out the break.if you get in the wrong spot you could easily have 3 different breaks. Fairways are awesome. Overall I highly recommend this course

Good course

Corica Park South Course is an excellent course in good condition. There are some easy holes and some challenging holes.
The greens are in excellent condition but definitely challenging.
Pace of play was a bit slow today

Interesting Course, Hate The Blind Shots

I enjoy my experience at Corica Park, South. My big takeaway was that the greens are similar to Old MacDonald in Oregon, very hard literally as the ball rarely leaves a mark, and the break is unfair at times. In fact, downhill putts are just mean here.

The layout is a stock muni with very nice bunkers. I hit roughly eight shots out of the bunkers and each was pleasant and even. The course can be beaten up by a bomber.

I really dislike the blind shots on this course.

The new Corica South course is a Bay Area gem.

If you are a fan of links-style golf, this is a "must play" golf course. They took what was a beaten-down muni and had Rees Jones completely overhaul it. It is now a super-fun and challenging links layout, patterned after the great sand belt courses of Australia. Great variety of holes, incredible green complexes, and the greens seem to always be in fantastic shape. This is one my new favorite tracks to play. BONUS: Great bar with good food and lots of micro-brews on tap, so your 19th hole experience will be just as good as your day on the course.

Fun Track!

The redesign is fantastic as the old Corica South is now a very playable, really enjoyable course. The conditions are excellent, and the greens in particular are about as good as it gets in the bay area. While the routing is almost identical to the prior course, the changes in elevation, bunkering, and other features make for a real upgrade. This is an easy walk with fairly firm fairways that drain well, so winter rounds are not a problem. If you haven't been to Corica Park, this is certainly worth a try. My guess - you'll go back for more.

Great Course tough greens

Great course and facility. South course is a very forgiving course but its real defense are the greens. They are fast and hard. Facility has a great restaurant and bar with JIms. Cant wait for the north course to open as well.
