Roddy Ranch Golf Club
Slow Play as Usual!
This course keeps going down hill every year since it was built. When the economy was stronger, they commanded a higher rate and the Golfnow deals were a bit more, but worth it. These days they cram as many people on all at once (small tournaments, golfnow customers, frequent player membership cardholders, etc.) The marshalls give you a head nod as if they are doing their jobs, but just cruise around. The sand bunkers are frequently hard caked mud. If you are a decent golfer, that likes speedy play, there are other courses in the area that are challenging, with friendlier staff.

First and Last time playing it.
Bunkers were compacted dirt, no driving range.
They had "Brown is the new Green" campaign signs everywhere which is like saying 56K dial up is the new high speed. Water conservation I get it but not watering fairways is pretty bad. It was really dissapointing that they have this campaign about brown is the new green but yet you drive by the driving range and the sprinklers were going from the time I got there until the time I left which by the way 5 hour round is not the ideal pace of play. Greens were in very nice shape. First time playing this course that I've heard some good things but definitely the last time I will be making the drive out there.

No driving range
Greens very nice, I was disappointed with how bad all of the sand bunkers are. And no driving range

Roddy is a great course with a good staff. The problem is consistently slow play. Management of the course over books (7 minute tee time separation) and marshalls are ineffective. Over the past year, I have not been able to complete a round - week days or weekend - in less than 5 hours. Often I have to leave the course before my round is finished.
Management may be generating revenues, but customers are not getting a satisfactory return for their payment.

Drought hurts Roddy
Greens were great! The rest of the course is suffering from the drought. Layout is pretty fair for all players. Some blind shots. Bunkers could use some sand and attention. Pleasant staff.
