Shadow Lakes Golf Club
Wish they would have advised of the greens being punched on Golfnow.com like the other courses in the same area did.

Fun day at Shadow Lakes ...
Had a good time ... greens recently sanded but that was OK.

value is always very good here
Unfortunately, I think Golf Now needs to be a little more strict on the aeration status of a course. The greens at Shadow were definitely punched and not fully recovered. I think Golf Now should require courses to state levels of aeration...aerated within past week, aerated within past two weeks, or no reference when they are "fully recovered".

greens in horrible shape unputtable need to rolled
very bad experience with playing experience and the attitude of the marshal I nor my friends won't be returning to this course again. I will be sharing this with my other golf buddies

the greens really need attention. and the staff needs customer service training
greens need attention. and staff needs customer service traing. driver range was in good shape as well as the fairways.

A play again
SL has an array of challenging but fair holes and great views of Mt. Diablo. Definitely a must play in the East Bay

A good challenge, especially if the wind is in play, which is often.
A good challenge, especially if the wind is in play, which is often. Hilly course with some great looking holes, lots of hazards.

Hills and lakes and rolling greens - oh my
Elevated tees on many holes, elevated greens with blind approach shots on others. Quality greens with slope in every section. Many ponds to avoid.
It was a clear day with views of the snow-capped Sierras, and Mt Diablo is always over your shoulder.

Great course. Challenging, specially the back nine. But took us almost 6 hrs. Overbooked?

Great Course, good layout, reasonably fast greens
This is a great course both in terms of value, and the right amount of challenge. Just wish it is not so far from SF. It takes a solid hour between there and the City.

This is a great value.
Very challenging course, excellent greens and fairways for winter. The course appears to drain very well, there were no mushy spots.
There were no marshalls and we were behind a group that was a little slow. It was an excellent winter day. The course has many elevation changes with lots of nice views. The course is in an upscale fairly new and modern neighborhood. Two other very good courses close by. Roddy Ranch and Deer Ridge.

Course was in great shape, considering all the rain we've had lately!
Course was in great shape, no soggy spots.....drainage was excellent! Greens were a bit tricky.

This course has a lot of challenging and fun holes!!
Walkers from the club definately slowed the play. This course should be carts only during prime hours during the week and weekends.

Had a Good Time
I played Shadow Lakes for the first time. The place was packed but the course played amazingly fast. The greens were faster than they looked. The next time I play this course I will have a better idea how to score. The burger was out of this world!

Bunkers need sand
Grenns are smoothand fast! You have stay below the hole to navgate them.

Course was in really good shape. Staff is friendly, but not overboard. clubhouse facilities are very nice. The green were fast and have a lot of challenging contour and elevation changes. pin placements were tough!

The course is very well kept. The staff is friendly. Had a great time.
I played the last two Wed at Shadow Creek. I brought my 13 yr old Grandson the first Wed. Your staff and course completely made his experience great. Your counter person, the starter, the marshall, and even the maintenance people on the course made the day fantastic for him. I will be sending you an email to thank you and explain why his day was so great. The second Wed. was with a friend who had never played Shadow Creek and was also impressed. The T boxes, fairways, greens, and sand bunkers are very well maintained. Again the staff was extremely friendly. We will be back.

Super low rates...For a reason
This course is in awful shape. It's an interesting layout but greens were fuzzy and bumpy, the fairways were tight and dry and the rough was shaggy. Very slow play and no marshall. We played behind younger guys who were hitting multiple tee shots and mulligans which was infuriating. I booked a single time on golf now and when I checked in the starter told me to go ahead and go. Poorly managed and hardly worth the $24.

I love Shadow Lakes
This in one of the best in the Bay Area. Lots of ups and downs and lots of water. Very challenging and great fun to play! The course is wet right now but in GREAT condition. I play here as often as I can.

We had a great time on a track that got hit hard by rain.
Course had extreme rain for two straight days up until about midnite before we played. The greens were above average and the fairways were good . The bunkers were our only real complaint. If it had been a dry week I think the course would have been in excellent condition.
December 27, 2012
It was a little wet but all in all with the cart path only rule in effect they are able to keep the course looking good
Definitely a great course to be able to play . There are those holes which will challenge you, only to get rewarded on one of the next holes . There is a good balance of holes on this course.

Had a good time playing. The course was well maintained.
Had an excellent time. The course was well maintained. WIll definitely play again.

This course had some great views
The course did not provide maps of each of the holes. Furthermore the pro shop did not relay the position of the tee for the day. The grounds lack restrooms. Only one for the entire course. Pro Shop staff was not helpful. Too close to homes.
Course marshall was friendly and helpful. The course was well maintained. Fast course. Beautiful views of the Delta hills and Mt. Diablo. The course was clean and the pace of play was nice

In great shape for winter golf
Pro shop was very nice and the course was great. Greens were fast and as the day progressed they got slower. All over the course was in great shape. Carts ran good, coffee shop-bar was nice and very quick for you at the turn.

Know your clubs
Tough pin placement in a Sunday. Mixture of open fairways with some right ones. 3-4 holes with water to worry about. Good to know your iron distances.
December 10, 2012
Challenging, fun layout. Pace of play waaaay to slow. Over 5 hours.

Great Course to Challenge Your Game
Would highly recommend playing this course if you like a challenge. Played the day after it rained and the course drained well. A lot of elevation changes add to the difficulty, suggest downloading course app for yardages as course is not marked that well. Look for the HOT DEAL on Golfnow.com and save a few bucks.

Hadn't played this course in a few years. It was in good shape and most of the greens were in excellent shape. Seems golfers tend to repair their divots here more than other I have been to, which helps keep the greens nice. Hole placements the day I played were tough but still had a great time. I would recomend it to other players
October 20, 2012
Very well kept and beautifully designed.
a wonderful course to play. They had a grass range to warm up on, a great course layout, very hilly but not ridiculously challenging, and a wonderful staff. The greens were just aerated or seeded recently, so they played slow, but I can imagine on warm days, they would normally play pretty quick and challenging. Overall a great course, and for a 19$ hot deal, unbeatable.

This is a good course
Lot of area under repair on the fair ways. the should of only fixed it a little at a time.
