Tilden will test your skills even though it is not long. The fairways are narrow and tree-lined, the lies uneven, and the greens are tricky. The course is beautiful, set into a valley in the middle of Tilden Regional Park. American Golf has done a great job in maintaining the course in wonderful condition. Don't get discouraged on the first... More

Tilden is a very hilly course with tons of pine trees and hazards. Many holes have extreme dog legs requiring precision shots. Sometimes the slope of the hills require strategic shots to the fringe to allow the ball to roll back into the fairway because balls into the fairway tend to roll to the fringe.

A beautiful day at Tilden Park. On the whole the course was in excellent condition despite the drought. The greens had recovered well from tineing and ran well. Some work being done on some of the 't' boxes which was a shame. There were a few holes where everyone teed off from the same spot. A little hard for women... More

A shorter course in an excellent setting within Tilden Park. The driving range, putting green and clubhouse are all adequate, the course presents interesting holes and views of the valley. The condition of the course is usually at best, average given the number of rounds. Expect to have a very slow round and have ample opportunity to enjoy the day... More

A very nice public golf facility with terrific views of the Bay. Not long. they have a practice range as well. What makes up for the distance is the contour. The course is set in the hills. You seem to never have a flat lie except on the tee box.

Yeah, really - might be possible depending on where you are on the course when you holler "FORE!" This golf course is a deceptive beauty that will eat your lunch and ask for seconds. Nestled in a high valley in Tilden Regional Park the vistas on this course are almost as distracting as the ones getting to it! Maybe I'm... More

This is a great course for the price. Very pretty setting & interesting holes. Just like any muni though, it can be slow on weekends.

This beautiful golf course is just minutes away from CAL/Berkeley. It is nestled among Pine trees and Euclopus (sp) trees. The air is crisp and has the aroma of a forest! Lunch at the grill was delicious. Pro shop friendly. Rates were nice and affordable!

I played last weekend and took 6 hours to play the course. The course itself was fine but not one marshall was to be found even when I called the pro shop to complaint about the pace of play. On top of that the breakfast I ordered at the snack bar was absolutely horrible. How can you screw up a... More
