Santa Clara Golf & Tennis Club
A leave work early round
Took off work early to play and hit a hot deal. For Santa Clara it was a great price especially if you're not a resident. The fairways are ok, spotty in some sections. The pace of play was alright, always some jokers playing from the tips that can't hit it past the ladies tees and marking 1 foot putts. Greens were in great contidion, receptive and speedier than normal (nothing like Cinnabar though). Overall it's a nice long course to play that offers some challenge.

Windy Windy Windy
Greens fantastic, fairways and tees surprisingly good. Wind was ripping at 2-3 clubs all day (1:00 TT), but for $26, best deal around.
If it's your first time here, hope you get paired with someone familiar with the layout - many blind tee shots.

Good course for the $. But be ready for some wind.

Fairways needs some TLC
Fairway condition not too good on some holes. This may due to the golf course being used as parking lot for football. On some holes you can see the beaten down tracks of cars and parking dividers etched in the turf. I can see that this was once a beautiful golf course. Not anymore.

Good old course
First time playing here, and had a good time! You can tell this course gets a ton of play, it is quite beat up. Even with that said, the course design and layout is excellent! Forgiving off the tee, and the huge greens give you a good chance to get up and down. Enjoyed seeing the 49ers stadium for most of the round. Worth trying if you haven't played Santa Clara GC.

they should post they just aerated greens
the course wasn't that bad considering they use it as a parking lot now for the events at the new stadium(literally park all the cars on the fairways and wherever they can fit besides greens)Although had they parked them on the greens they would have rolled better.They had just plugged them and sanded them but never rolled them so they were extremely bumpy and ridiculously slow,impossible to hole a putt except for luck if it bounced in.two 5 somes in front of us,one let us past the other held there ground and were a hole behind at least.Noone in charge was present in the facility,I was angry it didn't tell us on gold now like normal and I would have never booked there,I don't like aerated greens....a lot of dead areas on the fairway due to parking and cars,but overall playable still if the greens were true and you just dropped off dirt areas.To bad they let this course go it used to be an alright place to play.....disappointed.

A parking lot and a golf course
We were told when we checked in that we would have to play the front 9 twice because they were punching the back 9. After an hour we were told we could play the back 9. With the greens just punched it was kind of bogus, very bumpy and sandy. This course is used for parking for the adjacent 49's stadium across the street and it looks it, very ratty fairways, tire marks everywhere and lots of missing turf. If you don't mind that it is a very interesting layout with some great holes. Buyer beware.

Good price value for the course
This was a very nice course centrally located in the south bay. The amenities of the golf course were very nice. The driving range was also very nice. The greens were in very good shape. I would recommend this course for the price
