This is the best municipal course in the Sacramento area, hands down. It is a very traditional layout. Tree lined fairways with elevated greens surrounded by bunkers, The course lies in the American River Parkway which means you will be joined in your round by the local wildlife. It is a rare day that you don't have deer, turkeys and... More

They have typical sandwich/burger menu with some specials for the day. Beer available. The beautiful view of the golf course makes every meal special.

I golf all over Sacramento and out lying areas and Ancil Hoffman is one of my favorites. There is not a great deal of trouble if you can stay out of the trees, and the greens are fairly slow, which suits me best compared to other courses in the area. There is lots of shade in the heat of the... More

Nestled away from the local business and housing is a beautiful golf course. Sharing the grounds is a nature center and borders the American River. Ancil Hoffman has an abundance of trees that line every fairway which makes an errant ball pay the price. It is not uncommon to see baby fawns grazing along with full grown deer in the... More

Nice and not overly challenging golf course. Despite being in the middle of winter, greens and fairways in very good shape. Agree with previous poster regarding the geese. Enough to feed Sac's homeless for a year. I nailed one off the fourth tee but thankfully didn't kill it. A surprisingly nice and large pro shop with plenty of deals. Plenty... More

This is a beautiful golf course in a serene setting. It is spoiled by the amount of ducks and geese that are living there. You can not walk on grass that doesn't have poop on it. The green's are the same. Can't go back to that mess again. Too bad the waterfowl have spoiled a great place to golf.

My favorite Municipal golf course in Sacramento. Greens are always slow, but one should expect that at a county owned golf course. Old trees make the course challenging.

Played in June 2010. Despite a tee time, pro shop instructed starter to put 2 groups in front of us right before our tee time. Course played in 4.5 hours although it seemed very slow. Marshall did ask one group to speed up after someone complained about them being behind. Course conditions were good for a muni and the price... More
