Best to avoid if you can

This used to be my home course. But lately they are packing them so tight that half the round is spent waiting.
I now try to go anywhere else if I can.
If they would make the groups every 10 min it would change it immensely.

Invest in the golf course

I'm so happy that you are making money - driving range sales are triple pre-covid levels and the course has never been busier.

While we understand that revenue from the restaurant is down, please invest in the golf course. Weeds in the bunkers, barren stretches of dirt in the fairways, and overall maintenance should be ramped up to keep the course conditions decent.

Great course a little slow

I love the layout of the course for a casual round. Distance isn’t too long from the blue men’s tees and the hole design and pins make for a fun round. Fairways are well cut. A little dry in a few areas but overall really great condition. Pace of play was slow for me and my partner walking.

OK but not inspired to go back soon

I thought this course has some very nice things and some not so nice things. Course itself is in pretty good shape, interesting layout, relatively flat so easily walked and longish. Greens had been recently sanded so were slow but in good shape. Bunkers had real sand. Fairways good. Rough in some areas but in general hard to lose a ball. The two gentleman we played with were very nice and enjoyable company.
What I didn't like: limited range space - people who use it don't know how to practice on grass so they were super chewed up, thought the general atmosphere was "we're all really rich and have nice cars" so a little snotty. $14 for a medium bucket of range balls seems VERY high. You have to carry clubs in as no carts in the parking lot which I understand but don't like...Would play there again as long as I can find a tee time for less then $40. Didn't buy food or drink so no comment there.

Acceptable Round

Considering how full the course was, the pace of play was decent. Greens were in good shape, though recently sanded (so a bit slow). Windy, but nice weather. Acceptable round overall.

Great track!

Peacock Gap is a solid course with some challenging holes to keep things interesting. The staff there have done a great job keeping things clean during these crazy pandemic days. Would definitely recommend!!

Pace is an issue

I've been playing here for years and have always enjoyed the golf course. It's generally fun, walkable and in decent shape. Unfortunately the last two times I've played at Peacock Gap, we've quit after 12 holes because the pace has become painfully slow. I think this is partly due to extremely high demand during the pandemic, but that's not really an excuse for a 6+ hour round. They don't make any effort to speed up slow golfers and when a marshal finally came around, we asked about it and his answer was "its Sunday" and his recommendation was to play 2 balls. No wonder pace is so bad! Its been one of my favorite courses to play in the Bay Area for a long time, but sadly if they don't make changes to improve the pace of play, I won't be coming back.
