Prior to this round I had probably played Cinnabar a dozen times and had never had a bad experience. However, this time I cannot say the same. The night before I played the temperatures were expected to dip down into the mid 30s. Given that I had one of the first tee times I called the course in the morning... More

Hi Susan, Thank you so very much for your kind review! I hope you'll be able to come back soon -- and remember to bring your clubs next time, even if only a putter :-). It is very relaxing out on the putting green. Sincerely, Cecilia Ashley Director of Marketing cashley@cinnabarhills.com 408-323-7812 More

My 2nd visit to this course, and although we just practiced on the range the course appeared to be in excellent condition in spite of the CA drought. They are not watering the range though, so expect it to be a virtual desert with lots of dust on windy days. Hitting areas are still watered and nicely groomed. Had one... More

Thank you for visiting Cinnabar Hills and taking the time to write a review. We're glad you enjoyed your experience. Thanks also for acknowledging the excellent course condition in spite of the drought. So far in 2015 we have achieved water savings of 30% compared to the same period in 2103. Unfortunately, in order to keep the golf course in... More

Really tough. There were no holes where you get to relax. Come mentally prepared or you will lose to the course.

Cinnabar Hills offers spectacular views from dramatically raised tee boxes along with some fun and challenging golf. Players will want to be decent golfers as the course has some challenging features including large elevation changes, long forced carries, rolling fairways, fast greens and wind. Considering the drought, the course was in great shape. Pace of play was also good at... More

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
