Attraction details
Owner description: At TPC Stonebrae Country Club, breathtaking natural landscaping harmonizes in perfect balance with the luxurious design and myriad amenities of an unrivaled country club community. The Clubhouse features breathtaking views expanding 75 miles of the Bay Area in almost every direction-from San Jose to Oakland to Downtown San Francisco.The par-72, 7,200-yard championship layout was designed by world-renowned Scottish golf course architect David McLay Kidd to blend harmoniously with its unspoiled surroundings on Walpert Ridge, more than 1,500 feet above the East Bay. The course's design takes full advantage of the topography's sweeping panoramic vistas, rolling grasslands, wind-twisted oaks, and lichen-glazed outcroppings to create a stunning test of golf reminiscent of the grand links-style courses of Scotland.

“Stonebrae golf experience”
Reviewed December 10, 2008

We played the course on 12/9/08 from the Silver tees (approx. 6500 yards) in windy conditions. The word challenging is an understatement. We encountered lightning fast greens with multiple severe undulations, inaccesible pins, and rock-hard sloping fairways. Our group (7.2 to 10.0 indexes) felt the course was pretty much unplayable. Yes the views are amazing and the maintenance is excellent, however many good golf shots were not rewarded. Sorry to criticize this touted TPC course, but Oakhurst, Poppy Ridge and The Bridges don't play nearly as tough and are much more fair. If you like punishment this is the course for you.
