Fun, Tough course

I have played Mill Valley since the early 80's and the current conditions are the best they have ever been. Although not a long course, there is plenty of bite. Small greens and undulating hills provide a good challenge for most. I always wonder why people who are just learning come here. It could be very discouraging. You will test your short game and given the way the greens are rolling, putting isn't a gimme either! It is a beautiful walk, enjoy before the rains come!

Not my cup of tea

Couldn’t easily figure out where the next hole was. Very hilly with no real fairways. Greens were fine. Couldn’t get tees in ground on couple holes. But hey, what do expect for 10 bucks?

MV GOLF

When you walk through the redwoods, and get views of the mountains, rarely does it include the word GOLF.
Take some time to walk this gem and play in a well situated (9) hole setting just north of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Quirky, decent but gourgeous

Great for casual scenic golf experience. Not for the golf snob. Course layout mountain type: side way , uphill down hill lies. Elevation changes. Greens rolled pretty decent. Good value especially for the scenery.

They need to replace the turf tee box. The first hole has plenty of space for grass. I understand some of the turfs tees since its hard to grow grass under the redwoods.

Great variety of elevation and challenge

This course has plenty of side lies and hills to deal with. Greens are in good shape but the clover is blooming heavily in the rough on many of the fairways making it quite challenging to find balls that stray. Staff are friendly and the beauty of the surroundings are nice. Good course to challenge your skills if you are used to flat courses. I recommend checking it out.

Deceptively difficult 9 hole layout. Holes 3 & 4 challenging to reach in regulation. Most greens are slick postage stamps

When 9 is Enough

Nice course and people playing very laid back. Not rushed play.

Be aware there is only one water fountain on course so bring water or just be aware of that.

A few tees could use some love, but for the price, it's a great course.

Great bang for your buck!

This course isn't a fancy country club course perfectly curated to your every wish, but you're also not paying for that. It's a great little locals course reminiscent of Fleming or Golden Gate Park-only much tougher due to the slopes.

You practically can use every club in your bag, which makes it all the more fun. Not to mention the better weather and spectacular mountain and forest views!

The course needs more natural tee box

Starter was rude and had problems with 2 of our foursome one left we all should have. I played here previously and it was great and well maintained not anymore. We will not go back.

Great Track

Awesome course, great layout and great greens. You can use every club in the bag. Two sets of tees so 18 is possible but 9 holes was terrific.

Quick 9 holes

The short 9 with half par 3's and half par 4's makes you hit all the clubs in your bag.
It is a fairly difficult course to walk because of the hills.
Fairways are not in the best shape.
Greens were fairly sandy.

Good variety of holes and fun to play.

A Goat's Paradise.

A couple people had mentioned this quaint little course and how much fun it was. Nice setting and fun layout could make this course such, but this course needs a lot of TLC. Fairway hadn't been mowed in a couple of weeks making every shot an egg hunt. Greens have been taken over by fungus and will really be more of a mess in the weeks to come. Never have played frisbee golf, but would have welcomed the switch to a frisbe after the first hole. Worst conditions I can remember ever playing on.

Rich Town, Badly Kept Course

I know we've had some rain lately, so the bad condition of the course I'm commenting on takes that into consideration. But on the best of days I consider this a difficult "walking" course because of it's hilly nature and badly maintained paths. The tees are a mess, and I showed up on "Maintenance Monday" -- their term for every other Monday when they sand the greens. Wet, steep hillsides and unputtable greens with difficult tees. Oh well, the views were nice. Good hike, bad golf. I'm not going back.

Could be so much better

This could be a real gem, but since the draught, the fairways are unkempt and not taken care of, the greens suffer from a disease that makes putting a chore, and the joy this course usually brings has dissipated recently. I will keep giving it a try now and then, but as long as the course is not maintained, no point to go often.
