OK course at an OK price, but will it still be there in the future?

This course is OK if you are looking for a local course that isn't too expensive. The course had been upgraded in the past 5 years or so and was in pretty good shape. The long... read more

This course is OK if you are looking for a local course that isn't too expensive. The course had been upgraded in the past 5 years or so and was in pretty good shape. The long term problem is the new owner wants to rip it out and build homes. I wonder how the people that bought homes with the... More

Although fairly inexpensive San Ramon Golf Club isn't my favorite course in the area. They consider it a 'resort' course but it's more of a muni. Homes are very close on just about every hole. The condition of the course isn't as good as it could be although the greens are not bad. Try Callippe for a better golfing experience.

Took golf lessons here at a reasonable rate for 5 weeks. Good beginner lesson but would have been made better if there would have been another instructor so that you could get a little more individual attention. All in all not a bad deal for the price. They also have a nice driving range and putting green that is available... More

I have played here many times. The recent upgrades have made the course a little more challenging and the greens are in great shape, fast and fun. If you can get on early you have a better chance of not getting backed up as sometimes the groups management could be better! Love the new carts!

Latest news is that all the bunkers are being upgraded, so this is a very positive move by the club. On a Sunday afternoon it was only $32 for 2 players walking. This is great value. Keep supporting your local club.

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.
