This golf course has a nice practice range as well as a nice golf course. The golf course has nice views of the bay. It also has a pro shop. The golf course is close to the Marina area of San Leandro.

Beautiful and well maintained golf course just south of Oakland Airport. The course offers senior discounts or discounts for San Leandro Marina guests. There is a snack bar and bar. The pro shop is well stocked, full driving range, putting green, and chipping green available. Prices are very fair and worn it.

Be warned. If you are a local who gets their "golf specials"-it's too good to be true. There are conditions regarding ways and days that you book your round that aren't mentioned in the e-mails where you can't get the special prices. To add insult to injury-their staff is unfriendly, unprofessional, and don't seem to care whether you play golf... More

This course is fun and quite manageable if you can catch it before the afternoon winds start howling on the back nine along the Bay. My only gripe with the course were two things: the pro shop was out of score cards and seemed very disorganized, and about 1/3rd of the sand traps were under repair and not playable. This... More
