Course Reviews

Please Rate This Course

There aren't too many amenities at this course. The practice greens aren't very nice, and the range is rather poorly set up because of the hill (you can't really see your roll).

However, the course is pretty well maintained, and as a member, you can get pretty cheap green fees. I wish they had a 9-hole fee during twilight, but oh well.

I play from the whites, and there is a good mixture of easy and challenging holes. There's lots of trouble, with lots of canyons (especially on the back 9) and a few water hazards, but for the most part, the fairways are pretty wide (unlike Tilden Park in Berkeley).

It's my home course, and I've grown accustomed to it, but honestly, it's a pretty decent course for the recreational golfer and a working man like myself.

Mondays and Tuesdays are fairly wide open, the rest of the week can get a bit slow.

Amenities (grill and practice green)can use a upgrade. The course is well maintained, challenging and plays long from the blues. Enjoyable and a good value for the working man who enjoys his golf.
