San Juan Hills Country Club
San Juan Hills
Great course played in just under 4 hours. Greens were in great shape.

The starter informed us my youngest son could have played for just $7 but because we booked online he could not change the fee @ $25 per player ( a great price for adults). It was a family day. I brought my 2 boys, 13 & 16 and my brother.

Well maintained and challenging
Greens were in good condition and fast. Very few locations on the fairways were not in good condition. This is my preferred local track.

Great course for the price, nice features
Played San Juan Hills for the first time yesterday and I was impressed. I was impressed by the interesting and challenging layout, the friendly and welcoming staff and the live band that was playing at the 18th hole. This place has it together. The views are beautiful, and the greens are in very good condition.

Greens are amazing
This course is basically a muni style layout. Relatively short par 4's even from the blues with rather challenging par 3's. The holes in general are boring except for #16 and I believe 17 which both have water. There is also a nice downhill par five dogleg left which is a fun hole. However, most of the par 4's are unimaginative, flat, straight as an arrow. There are a number of elevated greens which makes for a challenge. The best part BY FAR are the greens. Superbly kept up, absolutely true and very few ball marks. I'd put the green up with any high end course I've played although they tend to play rather straight. Sand in bunkers is brown, but pretty fluffy and very fair to come out of. The fairways are just horrible. I sympathize with the greenskeepers as I'm sure the course gets a lot of play and the dirt doesn't seem to be the best. I also felt the $70 was pretty high and expected more for the money off golfnow.com. I play far better courses in San Jose for less money. The folks there were very nice, cart girl was great, and all in all, we had a good time. I'd give it a 5/10.

Greens are fast but true. The course is more challenging than it appears.
There's plenty of trouble if you don't hit straight especially holes 6, 10, 13 & 17. The par 5's aren't long but well guarded with traps in front of the greens. With hard greens it's difficult to stop the ball with a fairway wood or long iron.

good day to golf
I was fortunate enough to get teed up with 3 great golfers, the weather was beautiful, the course challenging and fairly well maintained, the new clubhouse and bar area is impressive with their ability to open all the glass doors on a nice day facing the 18th, makes for a nice round of golf and a great 19th hole!
Thank You SJH

Yes if male
I said yes to recommend, but only if male. This course is not friendly to a typical woman of average driving distance of 150 yards or less. I played with my wife and giving a woman who normally plays the forward tees less than 10 yards advantage on a par 5 is ridiculous.

Crabgrass, slow play, hackers paradise....
If you enjoy crabgrass (everywhere), VERY slow play, basically no up keep of a course, this is the course for you. Even with the golf now discount offered at $45, I still feel like I over paid by $20. Only good things about this course is the restaurant and clubhouse. Will never play here again. Worst fairways I've played on in years... Worst part, the round was 5 hours 25 minutes.

Decent for the money.
Pace of play was slower that I have recently encountered, but the course was decent and the staff was very friendly and attentive! I would play there again.

Good overall condition a nice layout
Very attractive clubhouse and friendly staff in both the pro shop and the restaurant. The layout of the course is visually very nice and the course is fair and challenging for an average player. It is not a long track, so the more skilled and long players may find it too easy. The fairways and rough are very playable, but are a mixture including quite a bit of crabgrass. The greens are in great condition, accept the ball very well and run true. We all enjoyed the day and would definitely play here again.

Other then complete SLOW play, this course lays out easy on the eye!
No real danger anywhere .

Nice layout and good mainatenance
It might be because of nice weather on the day I played, but it was so nice to play there. not really crowed and not bothered by anyone who was playing on other holes. worth it if you can get discount and pay less than $35.

Good rate, very slow play- 5 1/2 hrs!
Be prepared for the longest round in Sol Cal.
But, $38 for twilight is good value.

Green's in need of repair.
This is one of my favorite course. Greens are generally fast, which I preferred. However the greens where in need of repair.

$34 @ 6:56am tee time via GN.
I got a great rate for a very good course. Booked a single and joined a twosome. We finished 18 in under 4 hours. We were the second group out for the day. The hardest thing was battling the mid 30 degree weather for the first 90 minutes. So Cal should not be this chilly.
-great layout/beautiful surroundings
-tons of elevated greens
-fast, fast, fast greens
-very nice 19th hole bar & grill
Will play again.

Always fun to play
Good course, front is easier than the back. Played with a friend that plays there a lot and she had a hole in one, now that's how you start off the new year.

Enjoyable and fun course except for 1 hole
Nicely maintained course, soft but fast greens. Enjoyable round, don't really understand why there were so many less than happy customers based on the Yelp reviews????

Always enjoy planning San Juan. It has length, dog logs, elevation, fairway traps, water. Pretty challenging course.
Very enjoyable day on the links. It was overcast all day but we got to play in less than 4 hours. The couse was in pretty good shape although some of the greens had some bad spots but the pin placements avoided most.

Good Location - Good Condition
The San Juan Hills golf course was in as good condition as it's ever been during our round. The greens were in great condition and very challenging - not a flat, straight roll on any of them - and fast.
Great weather, excellent pace of play (4 hours).
A little pricey at $75. Shop around for lower green fees and this would be a very good value.
New Clubhouse and restaurant are VERY nicely done. Drop in for lunch even if you're not golfing.

Challenging and beautiful course
The course has beautiful views, and with the re-seeding of early November 2012 taking hold, the greens and tees are terrific. The fairways are 8 out of 10 and getting better daily. Challenging with water, lots of sand, rolling fairways, and several elevated and slick greens.

Great Golf Course
Great Course and Great Staff. Bunkers need a little work though.

This is a great track, challenging with different hole layouts, and lengths. A little bit of everything for the golf enthusiast. Great clubhouse and proshop, food is awesome and staff is attentive and helpful. Don't wear jeans, Ray will throw you in the water!

This course has a good layout with many elevation changes.
The greens were just arrated the day before, but putted fairly fast and relatively even. The pass of play was 3and a half hours, and food and beverages fairly cheep. What more could you want.

fun course with challenging greens
Fun course with few flat fairways The greens are big and challenging. Its a a fun course. It's great exercise if you walk it - long with many hills. Sunday play was slow.

This course is overpriced and requires attention.
Despite reading some positve articles about this course, the experience was completely under-whelming. The greens are reasonable, but the tee boxes and fairwarys are in desperate need of attention. We paid $60 each to play this course and felt absolutely violated. The pro shop staff agreed that the course is overpriced but management won't change their practices.

Solid course, sometimes plays slow
Good value for your money. Is fairly easy from the whites and a bit more challenging from the blues. At times pace of play is slow, but unless you're playing a country club, that's going to be any course on a weekend. It's easily accessible from the I-5.
