Roddy Ranch Golf Club
Well manicured course and challenging greens.
This place is outstanding if you like to challenge your swing ability. If you over swing it, you could lose it. Had a great time on my first day here, great staff and good playing partners.

NOT for beginners
Roddy Ranch is a fine golf course and I have played there many times. However, this is a VERY challenging course and should only be played by HIGHLY-SKILLED, EXPERIENCED golfers. This is not a course for beginners for people who don't play very well or who only play once or twice a year. The pace of play on the weekends is horrible as people who don't play very often spend huge amounts of time trying to figure out where they are going and then looking for lost balls.
The course needs to be played a few times as there are several blind shots and deceiving views that can trick you into hitting it on a line that is no good.
The greens are fast and have subtle breaks that you can't see with the naked eye. The driving range is grass, but is mostly dirt now because of the lack of rainfall.
A fine course for an experienced golfer. But if you are a beginner, go someplace else. You will not enjoy this course if you are a beginner.

A Good Day to Play
The pro shop and on course assistant were very professional which made the experience pleasurable. The course was in excellent condition and the weather was quite nice. The players I was paired up with were friendly and the pace of play was good.

The pace of play was extremely slow. People walking slow, too many 4person groups, not spread out enough and Marshall's not speeding things up but rather just driving around.
I would like to try out a twighlight round because 1030 on a rainy afternoon didn't seem too quick. Not that hard to speed things up or spread groups out better.
Golf cart lady done early also was a bummer.
We ended up skipping ahead to another hole but found the same backup. We didn't complete our round and found ourselves bummed because of this.

Not its best day but an absolute steal!
The greens weren't as smooth or fast as they normally are but the course was in overall decent condition. It's a difficult course with lots of forced carries and deep bunkers but scenic and fun. I only paid $25 though, so that's an automatic win.

Beautiful course. Very challenging, especially as a first timer. Lots of up and down hills keeps things interesting. Check out my "Tips" to try to stay out of the trouble that I found myself in.
TIPS: You really need to know where to put your shots, and where not to on this course. Lots of side hill landing areas, which if you aren't in the right position can lead to problems. The greens are very fast, but mostly fair. Bunkers don't have any sand in them. Just a sprinkling of loose dirt and little bits of very small gravel, all on top of some very heavy firm clay/dirt. Stay out of the bunkers!
