Express 9 @ Bing Maloney
Bing Maloney is old-school, affordable golf in Sacramento
The regulation course at Bing Maloney provides a no-frills, old-fashioned round of parkland golf. The terrain is flat and tree-lined. The fairways move just enough to create some unique angles of attack. The greens were impressive, fast and true. The old pond on the second hole is being filled in and will eventually be grassed over. The back nine is clearly superior. Its best two holes - no. 10 and 12 - dogleg left, demanding a draw for the best position. Everybody especially remembers the 12th hole, where a huge tree guards the fairway. Golfers not brave enough to blast one past the left side of the tree, flirting with the out-of-bounds line, must bail out to the right side of the fairway, leaving a 250-yard approach into the green. Every other hole is what-you-see-is-what-you-get.

I liked the wide fairways but don't miss them. Deep deep grass if you miss. I will definitely play there again.

Bada Bing - Exress 9
9 holes on the "Express 9' at Bing Maloney was great value for only $5 through GolfNow. Overall course conditions were good and pace of play was very fast as no one was in front of us. Only down side to the course was that the last two holes did not have signs listing the distances for each of the tee boxes. (Be sure to grab a score card.) A good play for a fast 9 and for hitting a lot of your irons.

The course was I great condition
Fast pace, not crowded. Soccer golf players were not an issue. Good to have The City Play Card.

Neighborhood Golf Course, Good Deal!
I like this course, it's a Sacramento standard. Lots of trees, big ones, give the course character. Usually fairly pricey for an older muni course, but the GolfNow deal for veteran's day was great, at the low price of $22. Now I said a lot of things were good, but that is based on all my experiences here. The greens on this day were faster than normal, and were in great condition even though many of them had a lot of tree debis on them (typical of this course). The two sandtraps I got into today were almost worth hitting into, the condition of the sand was so perfect. Had a good day so can't complain.

Nice little course
Good course for short game practice. Played quickly on a perfect day, although groups behind appeared to be slowed quite a bit by family foursomes. Greens were in excellent shape for the price and drought, some had significant/multiple breaks. Tee boxes a bit chewed up, but not terrible. Twilight rate is great.
