Course Reviews


I started playing this course back in early eighties when I was stationed here at Castle. I have returned after 25 years and now play a few times a week. I freelance as a writer and have written series
for publications in the Midwest on there golf courses.
It would be hard to find a more professional or courteous staff then Rancho Del Ray. The course itself is in excellent shape and fully matured. The prices are about as reasonable as you can get and a round
of golf at this course is a day of enjoyment.
You will be paired up with some of the friendliest golfers you will ever meet and in many ways it is almost like a private course. Everyone
seems to know one another and it is a great place to meet other golfers. The pace is pretty much what ever your desire, and if your looking for a fast nine or eighteen this is the spot to pick. The layout is forgiving for average golfers but there are definitely
some tricky holes. I love the back nine especially, by the time you hit
the tenth you got your game down and if your hitting the ball well you can definitely card some birds. Overall this is an excellent course for the price and you will be greeted at the desk with courtesy and
respect. These guys and the gals working the food and refreshments
are the best. You go out and do a round at Rancho Del Ray you are in for a treat. Be careful on that first hole, its a par 5 and that
water will come into play. But its the perfect set up to start your
round, successful golf courses have one thing in common. A starting hole that is interesting and one that kinda sets the tone for your day out. This par 5 has all of that and more. I have a blast every time I'm out here. I would recommend this course to all..........

I play here several times a year and recommend this course for anyone who wants a nice little challenge. The course has many old shade trees and is pleasant to play in the Summer. Those trees will eat your ball though, if you can't drive it straight. there are Enough water hazards to keep things interesting. The fairways are in good shape most of the time and the greens are well maintained and true, but unfortunately the players are not good about repairing spike or ball marks. The bar and restaraunt have good food and friendly staff. As courses go it's older and not perfect but pleasant and friendly. Just about every one I meet is nice to play a round with. Weekday and twilight rates are a good value and the course is easy to walk if you desire. Practice green and chipping area is good, Driving range is small but never too crowded.

I've played here about 4-5 times. Staff is always friendly and helpful. The fairways were damaged in areas but it appeared to be from insects. (Unavoidable) Greens putted true and the price wasn't that bad. I enjoyed it. Would recommend....

Probably the worst course for the price I've played at for a long time. The grass is more water puddles than grass. The tee-boxes are soaked. You hit a ball in the fairway and 10 blades of grass stick to it. There are tractors cutting grass in the middle of fairways and they don't yield and let you play through. The excess grass stays in the fairway and piles up about 1/2 foot deep off the ground. The service is lousy. Their prices are outrageous, comparable to much more professional courses with exceptional maintenance. The atmosphere is distracting. You try and tee off and there is a family of pit bulls barking at you from a ratty looking backyard 20 feet away from the tee-box. I could go on forever, but you get the drift. If you want to pay a fortune for a lousy experience, this is the play to be.

Very nice golf course. The course is kept up very well. I play ths course about once a month and its always in good condition.

The course is always in pretty good shape, and they keep the price down. I haven't spent over $35 with a cart at any time. I only paid $26 last time at 2:00pm. Overall fun place to play, challenging but fun.
