“Good local course”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

I used to play this course all the time when I was younger and could walk 18 holes, but now that I'm older and prefer to ride when I golf, I have found other better courses that include carts with their green fees at a much better overall price. This course is nice to play, but the fairways are not the best. Many times your fairway lies are like the rough at better courses. The greens are usually excellent here and putting can be difficult on some of the greens. From the blue and black tees this course is long and tough. From the whites tees, the two par fives are reachable for an average golfer. This course is good if you live close by, but there are many better places to play in the area if you want to drive 15 to 30 miles.

“Wonderful course”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

This golf course is one of the toughest that I've played. Long par 5s, fast and tricky greens. The setting is beautiful and the course is well maintained. Play it if you get the chance.

“Good, local golf”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

The course is in better shape since the management change in the last year. The slope ratings seem accurate. Very pleasant for twilight golf but good anytime too. Just remember, everything drains toward John Muir Hospital!

“Restaurant? It's been a 'step-child' for a long time”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Over the years, many proprietors have tried to induce people to return there. Don't know who's in charge now. The last time I went was to a service club lunch. One cannot judge a place that is asked to serve ~
600 people all at the same time. There are so many GOOD restaurants around, but Boundary Oak hasn't that reputation.

“Golf at Boundry Oaks, Walnut Creek”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

Upkeep is lacking. Food is high priced for what was ordered. Range balls were old and sad shape.
