“Nice course, variety of challenges and a good value!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

This course isn't going to necessarily challenge the single digit handicapper, but I think it has a good variety of holes and challenging par 5's. The variety of challenges from narrow fairways on some holes, to water, to undulating greens should challenge any duffer and provide for some great practice. The 19th hole (Champion's Bar & Grill) is a must stop after any round of 9 or 18!

“This is a nice place to play with your family”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

This is a good course. I grew up playing this course and worked there for a few years. It is a challenge from the back tees. They get a lot of play so the course will never be a top golf course but again it can be hard.

“I'm baaaaaaaack !!!”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Hi gang,
I used to play here often but stayed away for years due to increased fees, probably been 10 yrs since my last visit. I was informed that this muni course has contracted out its maint duties to a landscaping firm. The course looks very well maintained and found quite a few water puddles from the ample irrigation effort and it's paying off. The course is lush and the greens were perfect.
The check-in wasn't. Starter apparently forgot his greeting manners when he left home today. I felt like I was given a robotic reception with no " welcome to Diablo Creek", no "please" or "thank you" just "last name?", "resident?", "sign for cart", "write down cart number", etc., apparently he forgets which way the money flows...
Found the course to be clean and receptive. Bunkers in great shape and fairways offer good lies. If you haven't played here in awhile, come on back for a re-visit.

“What it lacks in up and down it makes up for in distance.”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Good location. Excellent parking. Well maintained course. #2 used to have a full sized tree in front of the green making driver accuracy a necessity. Takes a really heavy hitter to hit #3 in regulation from any of the tees. 600 yd, par 5, into the Delta winds most of the day makes it nearly impossible to hit green in regulation. And it gets more challenging from there.

Have fun and remember that golf is really one lesson in humility after another.

“Flat but challenging”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

This is a good course to walk because it's flat. Don't let the wide open look fool you this is a good test of gold. Don't recommend the back tees unless you are a low handicapper. They keep the course in great condition for the amount of play it gets and you will get your money's worth. The par 5 3rd hole is one of the most challenging I've ever played, a definite 3 shot par 5 over and around two lakes and usually against a prevailing wind. Back tees measure 665 yards with about 240 carry over the 1st lake. there are some fairly easy holes also but some big numbers can be found there if you are not careful. i used to live in the area and played this course hundreds of times so i know of what I speak. the restaurant is a sports bar and nice to have a drink or a meal after golf.
