Yocha Dehe at Cache Creek
Played Friday Oct 12th
Good tough course. Next time, I'll play from the next closest tee boxes. 420 yards par 4 holes are a bit of a stretch for a 65 year old.

Stay away before a qualifier
Love this course and staff, but this was a day before a PGA qualifier and I was not impressed at all by the behavior of the golfers. Group in front of me was playing 2-3 balls each- not a problem until the group behind started crawling up my backside- I was ok with it as I understand these guys are trying to get in. The capper was on the back nine at 12. I had a gap wedge shot to the green,, and two players came in from another part of the course and without a word, drive up to my green, dropped a handful of balls and started putting! I looked at them and said what gives? They waved, picked up their balls and jumped to 13, and started hitting with that group!
Enough was enough- I left after 12 holes- too bad as the course was in great shape and up that point it was a gorgeous day in the valley. Would have been nice to finish it up, but it was quite clear that was not going to happen.
I'll check before I book another round here- if there's anything like this going on I will go elsewhere

This course is beautiful. The staff was friendly. The bottles of water every three holes was very appreciated on this 90 degree day.

My favorite course
Down side it was hot. The course showed a little wear from the drought and heat. Course still in very good condition. Best and most friendly staff on any course I have played including some of the elite. Will definitely play again.

Tough, but beautiful course
Course in great shape. Long, tough greens, and a great challenge. Can't wait for my next round here

Most of the workers were quite rude. Perhaps it was because of my age or the look of my golf bag, but from the moment we arrived we were treated with no respect. That being said the course was beautiful and well taken care of. The fairways were under repair unfortunately but that is to be expected occasionally.
There are too many beautiful courses in California to go back to Yocha Dehe for the worst customer service I have experienced on a golf course.

Play like the pros
Yocha dehe is one of the premier courses in the area, the staff makes your golf experience excellent. They are currently working in re-sodding parts of the fairway but other than that it's great. Greens were punched 9/2 are still in incredible shape.

Staff & grounds crews were excellent. Couldn't ask for better service. The greens were in fair condition given they were plugged September 1. However, the fairways were almost nonexistent. I would estimate that over 50% of the fairways were barren ground. Little or no grass under the 2nd & 3rd shots. I've played this course when the fairways were in prestine condition. Will not play again til conditions improve.
I was a little embarrassed after bringing a friend out to play after bragging about the course.
