It has been a couple years but the DR at Ancil Hoffman was a total nightmare of being St Augustine roots laid bare in the sand with crowded booths lionized by cigar afficianados enjoying their monopoly of public space, do the pros care? Doubtful, and...More

I've played this course many times. It's very enjoyable, nice fairways with lots of trees & very few water holes. They also have plenty of parking & its along the river so it's a nice natural environment.

It is in great shape, especially for August. It is a challenging, but fair course. Greens were in very good shape. We saw deer, wild turkey, and other wildlife. My wife did not get a birdie, but she got a goose!

Ancil Hoffman is an absolute must play course in The Sacramento area. It has hosted many top amateur golf tournaments and several past champions have gone on to win at the PGA Tour level.

I play this course whenever I can. Fairly flat and walkable. Lots of trees, and the greens are always in good condition, as is the course. Very well taken care of.

Love this place though it seems to be falling into disrepair - It could use some more attention- and the price is high for the care of the grounds-

Very nice golf course. Great location for viewing wild life, too. Grass driving range. Kind of hard, not good for beginners

Ancil Hoffman is in good shape, the greens roll like a private course and yet I played today for $26.00 (walking). It's not perfect, they could use some new sand in the bunkers and there was a lot of ground under repair but it is...More

Hoffman has been a favorite of mine for decades.Until I joined Del Paso CC, I played it regularly. Had occasion to return today due to aeration at my home course. Hoffman is in wonderful shape. Fairways are great and greens excellent- fast and true! What...More
