I hadn't played here in over 10 years so was real pleased to see that it is still in excellent shape thanks to reclaimed water being used. The greens were fast and in good repair. However some dolt in the group ahead of us dragged their feet all the time and messed it up a bit. But that is just... More

I and my family play here once a year for the past 4 years and have always enjoyed this course. It may not be an elite course but it has always been maintained appropriately. The high note, the staff!!!! Hard to find a more accommodating and friendly staff at any golf course, we have always been treated really well and... More

Ladies--stay away!!!! Lots of long par 5s with an unequal starting tee blocks. May be good if you like hitting your fairway woods/hybrids over and over and over. Some bad angles from the red tees. High fences near some tee boxes are very distracting. Bumpy, uneven course shows lack of good landscaping over the decades. I just don't like playing... More

This is a fun public course to play but you can tell it's not being managed by a rich big company. It would be nice if they would put sand in the bunkers instead of dirt. Yes they improved the driving range but the track itself still needs lots of improvements.

This course has some redeeming qualities. #9 and #18 are fun because of the water. The Par 3s are tough and the greens are in fairly good shape. The course uses reclaimed water which smells terrible when the sprinklers come on. Many of the ball washers are empty of soap and water. Too many sand traps are just dry and... More

This place is a dump. The staff was rude and arrogant, not friendly at all. Guy up front running the shop was a complete jerk! They charged us $50 to play a course worth $20. It was 105 degrees and there is no running water fountains on the course, cart girls, or water jugs with cups. Nearly died from heat... More

Not the most exciting and challenging course, but it is well looked after and they offer a variety of low-cost opportunities to play here. The one 'problem' is the 9th, the club's Signature hole, as you can have had a good 8 holes, and then your round can be totally ruined by having to hit a green in the middle... More

In the heart of the Tri Valley. Fun and challenging course, the only island green in SF Bay area. Great friendly staff, new carts and course has been steadily improving. Twilight rates are a bargain on weekends as well
