A little deferred maintenance, the sign got hot and buckled so you can't use the ball washer Photo submitted by Cops1998 on 07/28/2018
Water to the left, short and to the right Photo submitted by Cops1998 on 07/28/2018
Several wide fairways will hills to cause the ball to run Photo submitted by Cops1998 on 07/28/2018
Most of the greens are kidney shaped, designed perpendicular to the fairway, so you don't want to go long, but plenty of run left/right Photo submitted by Cops1998 on 07/28/2018
Castle Oaks comes from the old castle-looking build seen from the 16th fairway, that was the 1st juvenile detention facility in CA built in the the early 1900s. It was closed in the 1970s. Photo submitted by Cops1998 on 07/28/2018

Thank you for adding a review. We appreciate your feedback and use it to improve our guests experience. We'll discuss pace of play policies with the team to help limit the slow play factor happening during your next round. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
Overall the course played well. Something needs to be done with the sand traps, too many small rocks, it is more like dirt then sand.
tried too canceal one of my tee times but phones were too beusy and your email was screwed up
Thank you so much for your 4 star review. We all work to help ensure our guests have the best possible experiences and 3 hour rounds certainly help. We value your feedback, and hope to see you back soon.
Firm & Fast
The course is in great shape. The greens are like a pool table. Rough will punish you as it’s supposed to. The only negative is there isn’t a grain of sand in the bunkers. They’re dirt with a hard clay bottom. I know stay out of them. The course plays through houses and isn’t that long so it’s protected by bunkers. Fairway and green side bunkers are atrocious.
Challenging course. A little hilly with s9me very interesting holes. The greens were wonderful, but the rough was a little long. The differences between the front nine and back nine makes it seem like they were designed by two different people. BTW, no mats on the driving range.
Great shape, hard greens
Great spring course. Greens are very firm.
The only knock one this course is the bunkers.
They are basically clay hardpan with no sand.
Challenging course, nice greens
A Truly good course. Fair challenging layout. Nice greens. Course in good shape except for sand traps.
The course conditions weren’t as good as normal. It’s as if they got to finally mow the rough after months of bad weather...... however the weather has been great. The ponds are all filled with algae
Excellent greens and fairways. Somewhat difficult rough (which it should be) for those of us playing it. Pace of play was a bit slow, which seems to be the case every time we play Castle Oaks.
Overall, nice day of golf!
The course was great and the staff is just as good.
Nice course and pace of play was great, played 18 in 2 hours
Long grass in fairways, first cut is like a hazzard. No sand in traps. Dry cut grass all over, lost balls because grass is too high. Just bad maintenance. Play LaContenta it is maintained..
Need to cut the rough
Played on Easter, felt like I was on an Easter egg hunt all day trying to find our balls. We lost a lot of balls that were not that far off the fairway that should have been findable easily. Rough right now is very thick and very long, hard to find your ball even just a yard off the fairway or green unless you know exactly where it was.
The course layout is great, big oak trees in play in lot of holes make you think about where you have to hit it. I know the rough is only due to all the rain this year, but it was almost unplayable with thick terrible lies even just a foot off the fairway or just off the greens. I intend to come back in a month or so and think they will have mowed it shorter by then and I’ll re-review it. The greens were in excellent condition and rolling well. Bunkers were not sand, more rocks and clayish, not sure if that’s on purpose I.e. “natural bunkers” or not, but it was hard to get it close out of them.
Pay the greens keeping staff overtime and cut that rough down these next few weeks and it’s an excellent course.
Thank you for the review and comments. We use your feedback to help improve the experience that we deliver our guests. You are correct that the additional rain has increased the rough, but we are heading into great weather conditions which enables the rough to be cut more often. Hope to see you again soon!
Fairways were in good shape but the rough was covered with thousands of clumps of grass. Spent excessive time trying to find my partner's ball.
Love the course. Greens and fairways were good. Rough is very thick.
Thank you for your 4 star review. We all work hard to provide our guests the best golfing experience possible and feedback like this means a great deal. We look forward to seeing you again.
