Hadn't played here since the course originally opened and the place looked. A fabulous club house with best bay view in Silicon Valley. The course is still crazy challenging. If you don't hit straight, be prepared to lose balls or bring a bag of "cheappy" balls. If you want a see how your game is progressing, then this will be... More
