Course conditions really slipping

This used to be my favorite public course in the East Bay, but the course conditioning has really suffered. Tee boxes are a mess and the greens are bumpy. I'll still keep this on the rotation because I enjoy the layout, but I hope they put some effort in the conditioning.

Everything was firm and fast

I appreciated the extra roll in the fairways, but the greens were also smoking fast. I hit a 35 yard lob wedge to the center of the green and end up rolling into a hazard.

Challenging and great condition

The course is challenging. Its not a grip it and rip it course. You need to give some thought to your tee shot. Pace of play was good and greens ran true.

Buy a yardage book

Buy a yardage book so you get the story behind each hole so you'll have an idea of whether you can reach or carry the fairway bunkers. The course was really interesting and in excellent condition.

A nice up and down course

A number of fun elevated tee shots as well as a variety of lies due to mounding in the fairways. Consistent green speed with interesting sloping and mounding.

Really tough the first time around

If we didn't have someone in the foursome that had played the course before we would have hit the wrong club off the tee a number of times. Its really short from the whites, but the challenge is in proper placement of your tee shots not length. Fun course that I would definitely play again if for no other reason than I would know where to hit my shots.

Tough course.

This is typical Johnny Miller design in that it really punishes every weak shot. If you're playing it for the first time I highly recommend a course guide since there are a lot of blind shots and a number of tee shots that require some knowledge of how far the fairway is.

Windiest day of golf ever

Unfortunately, we played on one of the windiest days of the year, which made an already difficult links course nearly unplayable. I gave the course an excellent rating because it shouldn't be penalized for a "one off" weather day.

Not long, but many interesting holes

Under 6K from the blues, but still a challenge. Club selection off the tee, especially when the wind is blowing, is key.

Played in 3 hours

The course was in good condition, but the facilities are getting a little worn. Greens were in good shape, but were much slower than they looked.
