Even if your not a golfer you can still enjoy the beautiful views of the course and the mountains in far South San Jose. Nice quiet outdoor seating and good lunch menu. Excellent practice facility, grass tees, sand, chipping, and three practice greens.

With three different 9 hole courses with different characteristics this is a place you can go often to play without being bored. I played Canyon and Lakes which where very different. As the Canyon name implies you play narrow ( not ridiculously narrow though) holes which require precise but not too long tee shots. Common for both courses is that... More

I played this course in a tournament so the first time it wasn't as good as this time. My client & I played this course in under 3hrs & we were both impressed. A lot of tough holes & course was in descent shape (a bit dry, but ok). People were friendly & we played through with no issues. Very... More

Played this course for the first time yesterday. Beautiful place, fairways running up, down and sideways on the hills, greens always perched in the middle of danger. Bring lots of golf balls if you can't hit it relatively straight. The fairways are ample but due to the sever slopes it is easy to miss them. Many carries over gunch filled... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Cinnabar Hills. We’re glad that you enjoyed your experience. We too wish that more folks would rake bunkers, fill divots and repair ball marks. We hope that the next time you are in town, you come back and visit us. Sincerely, Ron Zraick General Manager Cinnabar Hills Golf Club 408-323-7803 More

This is my home course - not sure why I never thought to review. Staff is super friendly - my brother summed it up when he visited - "This would be an expensive country club back in Boston." They will go above and beyond to help you out if they can. This is a tough course to play - you... More

Course in very good condition considering the drought situation in CA. Greens were receptive even late in the day, but for some reason CA golfers don't repair ball marks - go figure. Its a pet peeve of mine. Course winds through gorgeous hill country and the last two holes provide a view that makes climbing the hillsides worth it. Old... More

Hi gang, We played here June 2014 on a Groupon special @ $54.50 p/p. We were assigned to play the Lake 9 and the Canyon 9. Sadly I was playing with an injured hand and I couldn't acquire a serious grip on the club, so my shotmaking was somewhat compromised. I enjoyed the challenge but being a first-timer on the... More

27 available holes with a solid, challenging layout in a nature park-like setting. The only interference on the playing environment is a high-tension powerline, but otherwise, all you hear are the calling of birds and the screaming of frustrated golfers. Prices are a bit higher than average, but the quality of the course and the facilities justifies the extra cost.... More

WEDDING VENUE REVIEW: We physically went to over twenty venues before we found Cinnabar. It was EXACTLY what we were looking for. They have a gorgeous flower bed surrounding the trellis which didn't need any additional decoration! *MONEY SAVER!* Their food was my biggest concern but they totally nailed it. I was a bit scared after the tasting we did,... More
