Roddy Ranch Golf Club
Course is great, the water restrictions make it a little brown

Prices for mid-week rounds are often lower than anywhere else in the area. The course is very scenic and for the most part well kept. Greens are top class: fast but true. Some bad patches in the fairways and on the fringe of some bunkers. Bunkers themselves are short of sand. But the drought is hurting conditions everywhere so I'm mentioning the downsides, not complaining. Playing at one of the better public courses in the bay area for under 30 bucks including a cart? Can't beat that.

Drought conditions but still in good shape
The course is dealing with a drought, so they're limiting the water use. Lots of brown where there's usually green, but not where it counts. They've also cut down the areas off the fairways, so balls that would have been lost in high grass and weeds are still playable. Fast and firm, but still in good condition under the circumstances. I'd play it again.

There were many slow players yesterday. This course is not an easy course. Beginner golfers should not play there. Some golfers yerterday - hit 7 or more times before their balls reached the green.

The course has always provided a challenge for many- me included. There are many bunkers protecting the greens. The slope and speed, once on the greens, is another issue to content with. Still to this day I am puzzled by the terms most golfers familiar with the course calls "hospital curb".
Regardless of the many challenge this course offers, it does have it's appeal along with the very reasonable price any golfer would find hard to turn away from.

This course is just in horrible condition. They told me they put in Bermuda grass in the driving range to save money in water? Ummm how about you have people hitting into dirt??? Your driving range is downhill so do you think distance markers or grass matter?
The course itself is just bad. Ground under repair everywhere, wild bore tearing up the course and literally no grass in all the important spots...the fairway. greens were ehhh, whatever. Too many ball marks, but that's on the golfer.
It's almost getting to the point where 25 for 18 on golf now isn't worth it. I'd like to play on some grass you know? The drought is killing this course for sure. Might have to give this one a break until spring and see if we get some rain this winter.

There was confusion who was to tee off first and who with .

Great course great value
Greens quick and true fairways surprisingly green given the draught conditions.
