Roddy Ranch Golf Club
Great course when not saturated with rain!
Great course but the rain really worked a number on it. Very saturated however its still a fun time out when the course is empty. Had a great opportunity to take my time and work on my game, minus the bunker play. bunkers were like mini lakes. lol

The course was nice it was cart part only which I hate it was more trouble just walking to the ball it is a very hilly course I had a good time I played with 2 guys that played often with all the rain it was not too bad but muddy in areas... The greens were slow but readable I would love to play the course when it is in better condition to really test me I had fun. The area was really nice tucked away in the hills over looking the city. I was impressed.
You have to be long on some holes and place the ball on others it was a good skill tester so bring your A game when things dry up

Even when soaked the course wass better than most.
3 of us went out after it had been dumping rain for three straight days. The course was carts on path and bunker were GUR as everywhere is after heavy rain. After such a beating the course was in better condition than most courses are without heavy raining. The greens were very well kept and the layout of hte course was simple yet challenging. IF you are in this area please visit this course. you will not regret it.

Roddy Ranch Is Quite a Golfing Experience
I hate Roddy Ranch, so why do I keep going back? I'm a glutton for punishment, or love the challenge, I guess. The pros: very different course, with way too many bunkers!, shots on a slope most of the time, very different hilly views (even saw my first tarantula in years), and fast, well-tended greens. A very interesting course, not for the fainthearted. Cons? This only applies to now, in wet weather or because the course is coming back from the horrible drought, and that's the "carts on cart path only" rule. There's so much up and down from the cart that without anyone in front of you a foursome takes five hours to play the course. Also, the drought damaged areas of grass, that now are very clumpy and difficult to hit from. In better years, that might not be the case. I'm not going back until next spring, and only if I call and find out the "cart path only" isn't in effect. But I will be back!

Nice Course would love to play it all
I went with two friends and the course was wet from the rain the day before so cart path only. (UGH! and imo not necessary) Thankful for the rain, but the round was just way toooo slow. 4 hours to get in 13 holes. We had to call it a day a that point since it was only getting slower. Saw groups of five in front of us which makes no sense on a slow day with cart path only to even let groups of five go. Hit a shot wait 10 minutes.
Course was fun and challenging. Looks like they are working to get it green again. Greens are some of the most challenging I have putted on, but they roll true and fast. `The rolling hills, elevation changes, and distinction of colors make it a course that look really pretty. I really wished we could have played the whole round.
Bottom Line: I will try one more time when it is not cart path only and if it is that slow again I will not be back. If the pace is reasonable, it is a great deal for a good course.

I always tour RR as a must play for Bay Area golf enthusiasts. The summer drought was hard on the course, but the course is still in fair shape otherwise.
My criticisms are of hard-packed sand traps and extra-long grasses some times right off the fairways or around the greens.
The greens are in great shape and consistent, but due to some tough pin placements the pace of play was 5 1/2 hours on a Friday mid-day outing. Very unfortunate as we were waiting on most tees to hit our next shots.

One of my favorites in the area.
Love the layout of the course. Not long but always offering a challenge.

It was a day after it rained. the ground was not soggy at all.
The fairways are good. greens are not cut so it rolled slower.
It is a challenging course. It was enjoyable as usual.
