Deep Cliff Golf Course
Drought Damaged but still Fun
Deep Cliff is and has been a place my girlfriend and I keep coming back to. The price is right for the course, even more so when using GolfNow to book. The drought has sapped all water from this course so fairways look awful and the tee boxes are a mess. The greens are kept well and pace of play could be improved. (we went on a Sunday...it was pretty slow).
The first tee is a short Par 4 under 260 yards with a slight dog leg right. Bunkers to the right and left of the green. Easy to make Birdie or even Eagle if you can land on the green from the tee box.
2nd hole is nice with a slight left of tee pin placement. There is no back stop or sand traps, but the fairway is hard pack dirt and little grass.
3rd hole is short but you have to navigate a few bunkers and a small creek.
4th hole is nice and elevates perhaps 30 feet from tee box to green with a bunker on each side. I find using a 7 or 6 gets me to the green.
5th hole is straight away with a hill to the left. Bounce your shot off of the left hill and you will be great. Slicing right will endanger the 6th tee box.
6th hole is the "longest" and slice shots are gone into the creek. If you can keep it left to right, you will find 2 sand traps and an easy to manage green for birdie or par.
7th hole has the most difficult green, placed on a hill. I have birdied this hole before and you need to really see the green and lie to make a decent putt.
8th hole is straight away with a shallow bunker to the left. Hooking shots = lost golf balls.
9th hole is another Par 4, but this one is easily reachable from a decent driver or 3 wood from the tee.
10th hole is short and similar to hole 2.
11th hole is another par 4, dog leg left. Drive about 150 yards out but keep the ball left and close to the tree line, then up and down shot to the pin. This green is rock hard.
12th Hole is another par 4, big wide open fairway. Great hole with a few bunkers to navigate.
13th hole is like hole 10 but a few yards longer. 5 iron or 6 would suffice.
14th hole is just like hole 13.
Hole 15 is great because this is a true par 4 hole. Long sloping tee box to a valley below (I exaggerate) but reachable in 2 shots for birdie or Par.
Hole 16 and 17 are very very short. Pitching or Sand wedge.
18th hole is just like hole 4 but a lil shorter.
Great place to play, we need rain!!!

I have about 15 years of golf experience.
This is by far the worst course I have played.
Tee boxes are like muddy sand pits and the fairways aren't much better.
$35 to play out here is a JOKE.
The only bright side I will say is the conditions of the greens. The greens were freshly mowed and the only bright spot on the course.
Employees were nice at check-in and the facility was decent.
I would not recommend this course to anyone.

The tee boxes are all sand, the course condition is poor, they overbooked and the course was jampacked.
On the bright side the people were nice the course is fun Lotta par threes and we had a good time.

Good short game practice!
Nice staff. I inadvertantly signed up for 9(thru golf now) instead of 18, but they let me play 18 (on a really hot day). Course is showing signs of the drought, but the greens are in still in really nice condition AND it's always a pretty area. Finished 18 in 2 hours (really open due to the heat) and on my way!

The tee boxes are a joke, puting a tee in the sand. What other golf course do you tee it up it the sand.

This is a small executive course tucked into a canyon in Cupertino. I play the course a couple of time a year. In the past the course has been in poor condition. That said, on my last round I was impressed with the condition of the greens. much quicker and in great shape. Still work to do on some of the tee boxes but it is clear that they making significant progress.

Good for price
The ground is pretty hard. I imagine that's because of the drought. It's over all a pretty good course for the price.
