Yocha Dehe at Cache Creek
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.

Great course in the Sacramento area!
Played for this course for the first time. Staff was awesome! The setting in the foothills is fantastic. Fairways were in good condition and greens were firm and fast. The drought is beginning to take a toll on this course and many others. There are areas of the course which are being "let go." No real effect on play just hard to see in such a beautiful setting. I will be back for sure!!

A true gem of a course with a Country Club feel!
I snuck out to YD while I was in Sacramento for work. Because if was the dead of summer there were some great deals to be found! Everyone I spoke to recommended this course and I have to say, it filled my expectations.
The courtesy staff makes you feel like you are at a country club from the moment you arrive. They are all very friendly and eager to help. Bring some cash to tip them.
Practice facilities were plentiful and in good shape. There is a drought here right now so they have minimized their watering effort but I never felt like it affected my round (for the exception of the warm up range). The starter was helpful in telling us about the course and off we went.....and WHOA, what a way to start! (you will see when you tee off on #1 here).
The course was GREAT! Tee boxes for every level. Truly one of the most diverse scenery golf courses I have played. A little bit of mountains, little bit of vineyards and plenty of creeks and ponds. We ran into a couple of deer while we were in the vineyard as well making the experience that much more special. Bunkers were soft (wish I didn't know that so well!) greens were great and the fairways were huge!
We ran into the group ahead of us about hole 9. Being a resort course I can see how pace of play can become an issue but since they were nearly the only other group out there that day we passed them on 11 and never saw anyone again.
I cannot wait to return to YD! Definitely worth every penny!

This course is excellent. It's a very fair golf course where good shots are rewarded and bad shots result in bogey or worse. I played with my wife and we both enjoyed the course, so payers of all abilities will enjoy this track. Staff was to notch--very professional and friendly. Tee boxes were pristine, like the one you see on TV. Greens are perfect--on the faster side, but that's how I like it, and the putts role pure. On of my new favorite courses. Worth the drive, and will definitely be back.
