Roddy Ranch Golf Club
Roddy Ranch first time
This course is definitely tough. You have to be on your A game especially on the greens. I played with my buddy and they paired us up with a low handicap twosome. Needless to say it was not too difficult for them. But we all had a blast. I'm a 18 handicap and shot a 101. The slope rating was 140 so I wasn't expecting much less. I will play it again now that I know it a little better.

Great Price and a great course!!!
Great day for playing at Roddy Ranch. The price was $15 cheaper than their current rate. The course is in great shape and "brown is the new green" due to drought conditions. Fairways were fine and the greens rolled very true and fast!

Very interesting course
Each hole opens up to a different type of play. A lot of different tea boxes for all different skills of Golf .

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.
