We have played this golf course when one just wants to go out and play a practice round. It is in the horse race track area of the Alameda Country Fairgrounds. There is a driving range as well. On a pleasant summer day like today though it was perfect as I wanted more time to enjoy the Good Guys Rod... More

A very basic 9 hole course, built in the middle of the Fairgrounds Horse Race Track. Course condition is very average, but on summer weekday evenings a round is just a few dollars. There are virtually no trees, and the fairways are hard to identify. If you want a short course for challenging golf this is not the place for... More

This is a great place to practice your short game. You may need to use your Driver maybe twice. Don't forget to bring your bag cart. This is strictly a walking course.

I play/practice here at least once a week and find it well maintained and therefore the nice place to practice my short game as most holes are par threes. The greens are elevated making the tee shot challenging. You don't want to end up in the bunkers though. The sand is actually dirt ---no where near "great" quality. The practice... More

Good mix of short, medium & long holes. Good for beginners or infrequent players , or a quick practice round. Great views of Pleasanton Ridge.

This is a small 9 hole golf course, usually for beginner golfers. It can be very slow on weekends so expect to wait. It's wide open so you shouldn't get into too much trouble unless you are a wild hitter.

All learners need to start somewhere. For $14-18 one gets to play nine simple holes, including three Par-4s. Usually not very crowded and easy to get a tee-time.

Played here several times. it's a very short 9 holes in the middle ot the race track at the Alameda County Fairgrounds. Not particulary challenging, but a good place to get some exercise walking and work on your (very) short game.Great for beginners.

... great place to take a beginner. I taught my son to play here. It's nice, but amazingly the biggest hazard is the horse track! Lose a ball in there and it's not only gone but probably bad for the horses as well.
