Great challenge

This course is a very good test of your golf abilities. The back tees are a real challenge. Bring your A game. Course fits the Foothills surrounding it.

I really enjoyed the location and design of this course. The greens were well kept and wonderful to play on. Many challenging holes. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Several hydration spots throughout the course, the water was cool in each one. The bathrooms along the course are well kept and clean. The wildlife around this course is unique (at... More

The beautiful pro Dark Horse Golf Course is considered one of the best in California for golfers who enjoy no crowds and unhurried game among greens dotted with Oak and Pines and deer. Sometimes a turkey or two. Quiet and lovely. There is no real restaurant. The "club" is yet to be built, but you get a decent meal in... More

This course is off the beaten path... It's a nice course, kept up. They offer deals online.. This course is not the easiest. There are hills, trees, elevated greens and tee off boxes. This course takes a couple times to figure it out...

I am 73 years old, lack distance but enjoy a challenging course. Dark Horse exceeded my expectations. Great for us old guys but also for long ball hitters like my son.

This was a great golf course but the food and drink prices were high. Did not check out main menu but it looked like there were plenty of people in eating area.

I had a coupon for this course so it was a good deal. I had heard this was a beautiful course but compared to others I have been to, it paled in comparison. Could have been because it was late summer and much of the grass was brown but even with green grass, I would not have been overly impressed.... More

If you are planning to visit the Auburn, California area and have your golf clubs with you make sure you stop by Darkhorse Golf Course. Not for the faint of heart but it's a beautiful setting and well maintained. Just hope that the Green Keeper had a good night because if he comes to work in a bad mood he... More

I make it a point to play this course every time I visit the in-laws who live within 10 minutes of the course, and I play it at least 2-3 times per visit. Over the past 9 years I've seen it go through at least two management changes and one is currently underway based on their lack of liqueur license... More

Darkhorse is a well laid out course that is well taken care of. The fairways are wide but placement is key. The greens are large and well kept. The staff is friendly and always ready to help you out as needed. This course is fine for the novice to the elite golfer. The club house is small but well stocked.... More
