This course has great features

From start to finish, we had a very good time. Starting at the Pro Shop, Brian was very courteous. The course is in really good shape. And having dinner there was great also. Everyone was very friendly. I would definitely be back.

Horrible experience

First of all the back 9 of the course I was playing was closed!!! Secondly, the course had recently been sanded and was in awful shape as a result. Due to distance to course I drove up day before and stayed overnight. Total cost of trip was about $250 and it was not worth a penny!!

Disaster

Drove 2.5 hours and spent the night before at Murietta, stay was great.
Booked North Course as I played many years ago and wanted to re-visit. Emailed pro at course to find how to good, he said golf now.
What he failed to mention was that the back nine was closed, reason unknown and the greens had just been sanded!!
Either of these would have resulted in cancellation and save d me a wasted $200 ; no more golf now

Sub par value

Not impresses at all. I thought I would be playing a top notch golf course when I paid a $59 Hot Deal tee time. The course was a bit worn out, poor bunkers, not any better than a course with Hot Deal times below $20. In fact, I've played nicer courses for $23. Save your money, it was a poor use of.my.money. I wont return as there are 30 courses closer to me for half the price or less.

North course

I played in the rain. The front nine was very nice was very nice homes. The Back Nine what's like a plowed field hard to distinguish the fairways From the Rough. Front9 handled the water okay back nine not so much

Beautiful!

Rancho Murieta North. Is an older course: not long, lots of mature trees, narrow, elevation changes, with tough greens. They used to play PGA events here 30 years ago, and I can see why. It’s a challenge!

Only allowed 3 rounds a year

Of all the golf now courses I've played, this is the only one that limits you to 3 rounds a year. They say they are trying to increase their revenue but on the other hand they limit play. Very few want late afternoon rounds anyway. Makes know sense!! But, the pro shop staff are excellent!!

Doesn't make sense!!

They say they are doing Golf now to increase revenue, but, they limit anyone who lives close to 3 rounds a year. Doesn't make sense. Is it even legal to discriminate against someone by where they live??

True Hidden Gem

Rancho Murieta really feels like classic Sacramento golf at its finest. Lots of mature oaks, cool elevation changes and the feeling that the course was cut naturally its surroundings.

Really fun layout with a lot of variety and challenge. Some holes are super gettable and others, you'll feel like par is a gift. You will need every club in the bag, but it is always fair.

If you have the chance, you should try and find a way out here, as it is well worth your time.

$$$

Golfnow's deals have gone away. Looks like only one round is available on Fridays at $75.00 + $3.50 Golfnow fee. I guess that's OK but for a club on the brink of financial ruin they could try harder. It's not in 4 star shape but is a 4.5 star layout and requires every club in the bag. As a parting shot I would say if the club doesn't want you there, go elsewhere.

Too Many Homes

I was really disappointed with this course. A private club that makes you hit off mats on the driving range is unacceptable. The putting green is severly sloped, so it's hard to get a good feel of the greens. The greens on the course were slow. There are so many hole that have homes on both sides of the holes and right up against the fairways. I will never be back.
