Tilden Park Golf Course
first time suprise
as my first time at tilden I was surprised. had heard about the course and it's history. was shocked it was such an unpleasant playing experience. very slow play, course filled with beginners and absolute duffers, and greens and tee boxes a mess. will not ever return to play

Frozen, empty, great deal
We had the first tee time and it was frozen out. Greens had a nice layer of ice on them. Balls would have a long bounce and glide across the green but once it rolls it slows pretty good as it picks up all the ice in its path. Fairways were pretty solid as they were just as frozen. But you cant complain about this deal with breakfast AND lunch AND beers with the tee time. What made for an even better day was no one getting on the back 9 as we made the turn so it didnt slow us down to our 3hr round

Absolute Gem of a Course!
This was such a treat to play here. I can't believe that I have never played here in the past. The course is very majestic and challenging. Even more challenging if you play from the tips. All staff were friendly except for one individual, the Marshal. The Marshal came around several times with a grumpy attitude telling us to hurry up. However, we were waiting on groups ahead of us on every tee box. It wasn't like we were new to the game....all of us were single digit handicapers. We tired to explain, but he was rude and didn't want to hear us. He needs a lesson in customs, courtesies, and respect on how to treat your customers. Other than that, the course was fantastic!

Sunday at Tilden....not great
We played behind a twosome that had a radio blaring, were drinking heavlily (they threw their cups on the ground and if we lit a match it would have exploded), and they kept hitting more than one ball, even though we (a fousome) were waiting on every hole for over 10 minutes. We called the pro-shop and they DID NOTHING. We asked the pro-shop to call the PD to let them know these guys would be driving home in cars, and they DID NOT.

Sunday at Tilden
100% worth it. Tilden is a challenging course due to the trees, it's always got the best of me. The greens are tricky, average speed, breaks are present and not too trampled (even with a 1 PM tee time). The weather changed a bit throughout the round - par for a Bay Area round, but it was very nice.
One thing that was a bit of a bummer was the pace of play. We had a 5 some in front of us, with 2 walkers. One was an absolute beginner. Didn't let it bother us too much, but a marshall should have let us play through.
I'd do it again for the $.
