I like the setup on this course. It does have some good hills and blind shots. I was lucky to pair up with two locals who play there all the time. They're advice of where to place shots was right on point. The range still closed and they are working on half of the first hole. So #1 is a shorten par 3 instead of being a par 4. The 18th par 6 was a nice challenge.

A must-play in the east bay, not easy for beginners.

Quite possibly the worst golf experience I've ever had in my life. Had a noon tee time, and at $29, this seemed like a steal. Its actually a fun course to play, but not this day. When I first arrived, I noticed how crowded it was, but didn't think much of it because it was a Saturday. The driving range is currently under construction, which isn't that big of a deal. Our tee time was pushed back to 12:30, because it was so crowded. So we waited in the lounge at the bar to wait for our tee time. No bartender. Asked the gal at the food stand if someone could come help us. So said yes no problem, but we waited another 10 minutes and no one ever showed up. Waited in that bar for probably 30 minutes, and there was never anyone to show up and help us. Then we finally tee off, 30 minutes late. Long story short, we finished the 9th hole at 3:30. It took us 3 hours to finish 9 holes! At one point, there were 4 GROUPS at one of the par 3 holes. We eventually stopped playing after the 12th hole at 4:30. Being that its November, and gets dark at 5, there was no way we would have finished. Going in, I would have thought a 12:00 tee time, would give us more than enough time to finish. I was way wrong. We had to wait a minimum of 10 minutes for each hole to tee off. Definitely the worst and most frustrating golf experience I have ever had. If I could give this course a zero I would. I will not be returning to this course for some time, maybe ever again. It was horrible. 0 stars for the pace, 0 for the staff.

pace of play was very slow and it was annoing to await 15 minutes on every hole

We are not informed they close the back nine course and even the front nine some holes are also under re-construction, the staff not mentioned even when we checked in. we only knew when we finished the front nine holes tried to continue on the back nine.
we got the same experiences when played on Diablo creek golf course the other day. the front nine were closed and the back still under reconstruction, the whole course totally unplayable, but you still sale your tee time to your members without any notification of the condition of the course. Though last time you give us refund but the friends I invited were far away from the course. Waste time

I always have a fun time walking this course. Real good walk!! There is a fair amount of maintenence being done to the new driving range (not open) and hole #1. Looking forward to the improvements. Greens are hit or miss. Sneaky fast with slopes you need to read from all angles. I will be back.

It's a challenging place to play golf. Every hole are very unique. It's good for beginners who wants to learn golf because some of the hole are very forgiving because of the downhill area. It's fun but challenging. I want to play this course again.
