Great out of town get away with a group.
I played18 holes with my 15 year old son. The person at the pro shop was great in that we were running a little behind, coming from out of town and needed to back out tee time a bit.
The food in the bar was good but took a while to get it. the course was in really good condition. the greens were holding a shot. Pace of play perfect. Cost to play was fabulous, $38.00 for two with cart.
I would do it again.

Burbs but tough greens
They keep this course in great shape. The pin positions were awfully tough.

Played again after 25 years
Course is still "out in the boonies" but a nice drive from the Sacto area. Course is in pretty good shape but several of the greens appear to have been hit by a fungus. Greens rolled true and I had trouble judging the wind on several holes. But the price thru golfnow.com was great and I'd play it again. The trees had grown in the past 25 years and I'm still looking for the Lakes??????????

We signed up as 3. After waiting for our tee time a 4th person was added. We did not expect to have that happen. We were not the caliper golfer as this person so I don't think it was really fun for all of us.

Fairways ok, great greens
Tee'd off at 8:00 am, so we finished in just over 4 hours. The greens were in great shape and rolled true and fast. Would recommend to anyone. Just make sure to tee off early or pace of play will be slow.

A putters fantasy
So this course was a bit of a trek from the Roseville area, but I think it was definitely worth it. The course has an older style country club feel to it, which I realized I had definitely been missing in my rounds. Overall it was a very fun course to play.
The best feature of the course would definitely be the greens. They weren't quite US Open fast, but it certainly seems like they tried to get as close as they could without risking burning them up. There are subtle undulations as well as some significant breaks in these greens. They roll really pure. Approach shot placement is definitely important.
The rest of the course is in average condition, but considering the lower prices I think they've done a good job keeping it up. The sand traps were in fairly good condition as well, which is nice considering they are one of the most expensive things to keep up.
The course layout presented a lot of opportunities for shaping shots, and there are definitely some risk / reward holes when it comes to hitting the driver vs. laying back for a safer landing but longer approach. They did have one wonky tree in the middle of the fairway hole, but they trimmed it enough to where you can shape a low approach under it to either side.
All in all it was worth the trip, and I'll definitely be going back. Should shave 5 strokes off just from having played it once.
Side notes: Round was very fast - not very busy due to it being out of the way even for locals. Plenty of drinking water available throughout the round. Carts don't have GPS so if you want it, don't forget the extra batteries for your handhelds. The tri-tip sandwich was less than great, but better than good. For the price the sandwich and golf were well worth it.
