Windy in the summer, but at other times it is just the same as any other course, for the price, it is one of the best courses in the area.

The couse is easy on the front nine but gets a lot tougher on the back. Grade changes on the back should encourage you to stay out of the roughs. Fast play and the cost are the best deal on golf in the entire bay area. The weekday rate is $30 and weekends $40 WITH CART. Course is in great condition, there was some wind but I found playing in Monteray a lot more windy and it cost 5 time more. People are real nice and helpful. Course distance is on ever sprinkler head but we rented a gps in the club house for $5. They are operating out of a trailer with portable toilets but the ladies was something special. They give bottled water free and the food is a lot more reasonable than most courses I have played. Practice ball into the driving nets for warm up is also free and I saw they are building a new practice facility. All of the tees are elevated but there is one tough hole, the blind shot on nine but I hit it straight and was dancing on the green from 350 yard out and 150 feet up. They have a hole in one roster in the club house and they have posted a hole in one on Par 4 number 9, I would not have believed it before I drove the green. The closing hole is one long carry even with the added distance you get for the elevation change. I was on in four but 2 putted for boggy but that was only because I missed my second shot and it fell short of the creek.Save by a duck hook. I loved the course and will be back.

too many blind shots

portable restrooms only.
cannot find slope ratings for women playing from white tees???
too many blind shots without adequate knowledge of distance. there aren't enough distance markings, scorecard map is useless as well.
distances vary from scorecards to tee box sign to extra printout??? can't you print new scorecards with the correct yardage?
needs more signs, for example: i wasn't sure if i was supposed to play the 18th fairway on the left or the 9th fairway on the right (they are not marked by any signs by the 9th teebox), both are side by side and require a blind teeshot from up the hill.

first time

Thanks. I play with a few friends on tue or thur. My days off change but we always make a "road trip" a couple of times a month. We had heard about Mountain House and thought we'd try it out. They did offer a great deal. The course was in excellent shape. Playing in the Valley we're used to link style courses. What a change. Interesting, and we will be back. We planned on playing 18, but ended up at 27. Excellent "replay" rate and the staff was great. Thanks td

Unhappy Golfer

I've have been three times in the last several months, and wish that I would have stopped after the first time. The owner/Marshall is rude and overly protective of his course.While the track can be fun and challenging, the time spent waiting for the owner to come around yelling is more unconfortable. I will not be back.Plus it's just to windy up there. Better golf options around.

Nice challenging track but very weak in hospitality

Mountain House is a no tree all hill track, managed by a rude owner with no people skills. They need to post and rope off keep out areas for newbies to the track. The marshall is in a golf cart converted with large tires, equipped with a red light and siren. Beware of any type of driving in unmarked areas or gaps in between you and the group ahead of you. Your foursome will be yelled at and continously bothered during your remaining round. If you play here, be carefull and watch your back.

Needs Slope, Rating, Yardage Guide and Winds MPH!

The course is new so I can understand why it does not have its course ratings/slope. The elevation change on this course is beyond comprehension. I guess it could be due to the 30+ MPH wind that's blowing in circles around and above the tee box, but whatever it is, the distances on some of the Par 4s and 5s doesn't seem right. I'm not a long hitter by any means (i avg about 240 yd drives at a flat golf range), but somehow I drove the ball 350 yds. This was inexplicable because I was going slightly downhill and my shot was a bit of a fade against a pretty strong right to left wind. Yes, I checked for the wind by throwing grass and watching it blow around in almost diff directions at every tee box. I spent 10 min looking for my ball on that hole. On another note, my partner hit a 9 iron on a steep downhill 320 yd Par 4. He landed just 30 yds short of the green while my ball (used a driver) ended up 75 yds past the whole and in the hazard. The elevation change is challenging, but there must be some very strong winds that we can't tell by just throwing a piece of grass in the air.

Great value for a senior

Played the course for the first time yesterday. Great course but you have to stay in the center. The wind was not a factor but the heat was up. If you are not a long ball hitter like myself it will be a challange on some holes but all the holes are playable for the average golfer. I lost 3 balls but found four. I believe fourteen balls were lost in our threesome about half due to the wetlands areas which are off limits. I believe the course opened in April 2006. Sandwiches, sodas and water were available. It's recommended no alcohol be brought on the course due to DUI concerns. $25.00 for 18 holes with a cart is a pretty good bargain. (Senior rate)Don't look for trees. There are none.

My Experience

Amenities: Food service does not exist. Products to buy are limited to a few balls. Restrooms are only the outside portable variety, which don't appear to be kept up well, at all!
Difficulty: Course is challenging. Plenty of places to lose balls. Elevation changes on each hole vary. Fairway is not continuous in some cases, as in play off of the side of large hills.
Maintenance: Maintenance on the course appears to be adequate.
Scenery: Windy and cold early in the morning. Green areas to play on. Brown areas all around otherwise. Little water. No sand bunkers. Lots of small, furry animals with predatory birds circling above. Windmills in the background. Rating: Poor to moderate.
Value: Poor to moderate.

Mountain House golf course

Played here 8/06. Paid $25/incl cart as a senior. I loved the layout and challenges presented by every hole. The first 4 holes were pretty straight-forward, then the fun begins. Holes 5 thru 18 are target-golf the leave little room for error. I prefer golf courses with challenge, elevation changes and lots of trees. MH is lacking in trees but the rest if there. Bring lots of golf balls if you're not the straightest of hitters. Environmental areas (req'd in new course design) are there and you "not allowed to enter", but maint vehicles drive right thru the central one ??? The fairways are generous and wide open. The course guide sheet at the pro shop will definitely help you. Play with a frequent visitor for best results. I played the blues (6100 yds) for max challenge. Be patient and don't overdo yourself and you'll have a fun day. Amenities are not there. No driving range, just 5 driving nets. Putting green condition represents the greens out on the course. Food service is nil, pro shop is very friendly. Parking lot is adequate. Views of the windmills are fantastic!! Expect the wind, there are NO bunkers on the course (wind blows away the sand?), but if you miss the fairways, be prepared to re-tee. #9 leaves you with a blind tee shot down the hill, look carefully and have your buddy spot for you. I recommend this tract for everyone looking for some new challenges and beautiful scenery.

Although not rated by NCGA yet (understand that rating is forthcoming), this is a FUN Golf course for the novice or seasoned Hacker.

Built near the wind farms atop Altamont PAss, it can get a bit windy at times. Accuracy is key; fairways are tight but fair. Course condition is excellent for this recently opened (April 2006) course.

Playable in less than four hours for a twosome, course offers a few challenging shot opportunities. The BLIND 470 yard shot from an ELEVATED TEE (number 9) is exciting on its' own. Post your look out and, swing away!!
More than a few opportunites to DRIVE THE GREEN if you're a big Hitter.
Many PAR opportunities but, caution required on the Par 3's. You may end up with a boggie plus easily

A FUN COURSE. Play early to avoid the heat later in the day. A club house (with fully stocked 19th Hole) would be great if such is on the drawing board.
