Pleasant Surprise

After having lots and lots of rain, I was going into withdrawals....no golf for weeks! Even if the rain let up, the courses weren't in great shape. Fairways were soggy, rough was soggy and not mowed on a regular schedule. And when the grass was cut, there were the usual clumps of dead grass that easily conceals a wayward shot. Well, we had a break in the weather and I know that Rancho drains pretty well, so I took a chance. Bravo to the groundskeepers! Only had three holes that limited cart access, greens were great, fairways great and even the bunkers were in great shape. Keep up the good work!!

Big Greens- Challenging

Course is in good shape. Bunkers a bit hard, but we've had a lot of rain lately. The rough was a little to high for my liking, but that's the challenge, right. Fairways and greens are in great shape. A few drainage issues, but mostly a not an issue. All the Par 3 except 1 are very long. And all are very hard to score par. It's one of my favorite courses in the East Bay.

Still Enjoyed The Round

It was cloudy and cold, cart path only so I walked quite a bit. The course was very wet but not really muddy, played lift, clean and place. Greens were still very sandy and putting was a challenge on most holes.
All that being said still a fun round, great course lay-out. I"m eager to get back after the course drys out and the sun reappears.

Best muni golf course in the Bay Area

Always get an excited feeling at the first tee where a grand view of the course, like a landscape painting, appears before I take that first swing. Magnificently manicured fairway, trimmed trees around a well maintained pond, ,and what constitute as the rough are cut short. Not so difficult to find wayward balls. You can't miss the greens, they are large, enough to fit in a five bedroom house, which meant a few 100 feet putts for me.
It's been raining for weeks since Christmas, so the greens were quite soft and got bumpy late in the afternoon. Despite the cold cold winds, 36F on the 18th,, the finely manicured course made up for an enjoyable round.
My buddies and I play all over the SF Bay area, easily Rancho Solano GC gets our vote as the best municipal course in Northern Cal.

Had a wonderful day

Challenging course but a very beautiful and fun course to play. The staff was very friendly and updated us when there was a slowdown on the course.

I would not walk the course, but the carts are new and even though they don’t have the GPS yet the course is easy to follow.

Great price on a good course

The course is in surprisingly good shape after all the wind and rain. Only a couple of spots were still a little mushy but overall it was great.

Slow Sunday

I must say normally the course plays really good really on time and really nice, the last Sunday sucked, teed off at 2:30 could not finish 18. 5 hours riding 2 golfers. But they didn't have any problem hustling me off the course at 7:30. Go Rangers keep those tournaments moving.
