Five Hours and twenty minutes.....

I play Rancho Solano a lot. One of my favorite courses in the area. But a weekday morning round should not take 5:20 to complete! It was so slow that one of the players in our foursome had to leave before completing the round. As we were teeing off on 18 another group of three drove past, saying they were giving up. I think the problem was the foursome two groups in front of us. As you approach the 16th tee, you can see both 17 and 18 fairways. Both were empty.

Know where to hit them

The course is in good shape. Scoring is made difficult if the ball is not in the right place in the fairway. The greens are HUGE and three putts are common if you don't know where to land the ball on the green which can be dictated by where you start from in the fairway. Once you know the course you probably save about five strokes.

Challenging but fair

Plays longer than the actual yardage. Caught it on a real windy day which made it hard to score. Fairways were excellent. Greens were receptive and rolled consistent. Typical California greens. Feel real soft under your feet but actually roll out pretty good.

A beautiful course to play

The fairways and greens are in excellent shape. Enjoyed a great round. Humongous greens, but you need to hit the ball on the low side. It's very challenging to play it for me.

Beautiful!!

I’m sure most reviews of this course will be the same. The course was in perfect condition. The staff was excellent (including the course marshall who stopped to chat briefly). Burger at the turn was delicious. A great day all the way around!
